About

CLN/SBR/PNX - True Stories of Chaos, Redemption, Hope and Punk Rock is a documentary on sober punks, mostly musicians who share their experiences staying clean and sober in an environment that is not conducive to it.

 Noah Levine, Author, Founder Dharma Punx

We’ve shot about 20 interviews so far and hope to get another 20 in the can before the end of the year and then we get to the editing process.

So far I have interviewed FANG singer Sammytown, Chealsea Rose and Keith singer and guitarist from the band BITE, Dharma Punx author Noah Levine, Ike from Edge City Ruins, Tony from Let It Burn SF, author and filmmaker Michelle Tea, Gilman Project youth Thomas. Ben, singer from Econochrist, Sean Wheeler from Throwrag and more. I have commitments from Scott Kelly from Neurosis, Dh Peligro, drummer for Dead Kennedys and front man for Peligro Singer from punk veteran band TSOL, Jack Grisham and many more. With the donated funds I can reach out and travel farther to secure interviews.

This documentary will feature a great soundtrack and live footage from the bands that most of our subjects where or are in. There will be a segment that talks about the straight edge movement. Another recurring theme that came up during interviews was the importance of Gilman Street Project in Berkeley.

So far this project has been funding out of my pocket so this where I need your help. My goal is pretty conservative but my vision for this is grand. To the right you’ll see the donation levels and their rewards. Your donations will go towards post-production sound, editing. Paying my crew, who have been working hard for free, so far. A bit to marketing and visibility and putting out a good looking, great sounding documentary that will endure and inspire. With kickstarter its all or nothing. If I don’t meet my fundraising goal I will not get a cent. That would really suck.

Much gratitude goes out to you for participating in this campaign and a special heartfelt thank you to my crew and most especially to the folks I’ve interviewed for their bravery and honesty. It should be noted that not everyone in this documentary should be assumed clean and sober nor assumed to have drug or drinking issues. I will post the trailer to this page after its premier on October 20th so you can check out just how awesome this documentary is turning out. Thank you.

Risks and challenges

I don't foresee any major setbacks or obstacles. I'm a glass half-full kind of guy. My spiritual training and recovery focus revolves around fearlessness and facing obstacle head on. Whatever obstacles arise will be addressed and overcome with lessons learned.
