Last May, I created my mission: To reunite the brilliant but (in my opinion) under-appreciated band, the Kinks. I decided to make a documentary about the quest, wherever it took me. And it took me... To New York, to Los Angeles and to London. Along the way, I scored choice encounters with fellow Kinks fans named Sting, Zooey Deschanel, Paul Weller, Peter Buck, Robyn Hitchcock and Clive Davis. I also headed to London to search out the original four: Ray Davies, Dave Davies, Pete Quaife and Mick Avory.

So where do you come in?

We need to raise just $5,500 largely to finish the editing. (That’s after already raising about $65,000 to make the film – and what we put in from our own pockets.) The good news is that we've already filmed everything we need and I'm confident, from looking over our rough cut, that we're on the way to creating an innovative, inspiring, exciting film. Did I succeed at my mission? You'll have to wait and see.
