Us, Naked: Trixie and Monkey is a documentary feature premiering at DOC NYC 2014 on November 17th! This film was made with love, on a self-financed shoestring budget, and unprecedented generosity. We are grateful to Trixie and Monkey, to everyone who appears in the film, contributed music, crewed, created graphics -- the list goes on. Our storyline is complete but we need your help for the FINAL PUSH to the WORLD PREMIERE! Respectively we need help to finance final color-correction, sound design and the digital cinema package for film projection at IFC Center in New York City. Additional funds raised would be gratefully applied toward promoting the Premiere, creating a community event around the Premiere, and getting the film out to other cities.

Trixie and Monkey’s story of discovering uncompromising trust in their art unfolded before my eyes during a time that I too needed to believe in creativity – regardless of outer validation and apart from what the odds of success might be. This was the reason we could keep filming for almost seven years. Though uncertainty of financial resources loomed -- we knew we would keep filming till Trixie and Monkey's story completely unfolded. I'm grateful to my husband Scot who helped produce the film and stayed with me every step. Additionally, we have been supported by MANY who have followed the project since its inception! If you are new to the project, WELCOME! We are so glad to have you with us!
Since the DOC NYC premiere was announced we have been receiving requests for screenings in other cities. Premiering in NYC with postproduction on our color, sound and with a digital cinema package will make the greatest impact possible. FIRST NYC AND THEN THE WORLD! Also, know that by supporting our film you are also making a statement about the type of independent film you would like to see created, completed and seen! It takes a village:)
Trixie opens the documentary by saying, be careful not to make your dream too small – because then you’re really screwed if you actually get it and it wasn’t enough. This film is not only the story of making sure the dream is big enough – but lived to the fullest degree along the way. Join us and become a creator on our documentary! THANK YOU:)
MANY THANKS AND PLEASE REMEMBER TO SPREAD THE WORD: Email, Facebook, Tweet, text! Please remember to include the link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/914210308/us-naked-trixie-and-monkey-world-premiere
HOPE TO SEE YOU AT THE PREMIERE!
