Purchase your tickets here for the world premiere of Face 2 Face. $10. Sunday June 3rd @ 2:45PM at Mann's Chinese Theater in Los Angeles. I hope to see you all there since you made this movie happen! https://www.movietickets.com/purchase/perf_id/678827142/movieid/136901
I feel so grateful. Thank you to everyone who has made a pledge and to those of you who increased your pledge. That was super cool and I'm humbled by the gratitude and the warm and thoughtful wishes everyone has given this project.
I can't believe the movie will make its premiere almost to the day I started the journey last year. And that it's screening at Mann's Chinese Theater makes it all the more synchronistic.
When I moved to Los Angeles at 16, I remember there being a premiere and red carpet event at Mann's. Being only 16 and never out of Louisiana, I got a throw away camera and took a picture of my shoe touching the red carpet. All the dreams I had as a child growing up in that small little town seemed captured in that one photograph.
Sadly, my reality back then was not the red carpet. I was living in my car in the parking lot of a Hollywood motel. But, it would be that throw away camera and my idea for a story that would bring me back to Mann's 20 years later and screening my own movie.
The journey you have all seen me take this past year for Face 2 Face is about to be shared with the world and it's because of YOU that I get to share the experience. I hope to see you all on JUNE 3rd.
There is so much to update that I don't even know where to start. I sure hope people read these updates because I want you all to feel a part of this movie. I wrote this status update today about kickstarter and this process.
It's not just a project...it's a story. When I first chose to get involved with kickstarter my friends didn't believe I could raise the money to do my art. Some of them even thought it was demeaning to ask your own fans and friends for support. I wonder if Amanda Palmer thought that when she raised over a half of million to do her album. Or Jordis who made her goal in just 24 hours. The reason I didn't listen to those people a year ago, was because I felt kickstarter was the new revolution of art being made for fans. THEIR WAY! And what better way to make art, than to make it with your friends, family and fans. Your fans can't share in your art, if you can't make it, so kickstarter is a win win for everyone!
If it wasn't for you this journey would have never happened and I probably wouldn't be alive. Face 2 Face truly saved my life.
Okay, enough of the deep stuff. (I am a Pisces, I can't help it)
I'm so excited that we met our goal because now the fun can begin. All the money now raised will go to help the people that can't afford plane tickets that were in the movie be able to come to the premiere. It also will go toward our after party for how can you have a premiere without inviting all your fans and friends to celebrate? I'm working on getting the Prince of Blues here in New Orleans "Guitar Lighnin' Lee" who just had an incredible run at the Jazz Fest. I've also asked Jordis if she would come and perform so this could really be something fantastic if we can raise enough money.
I do hope you will all try and make it to the premiere. You made this movie after all!
PS: Here is some footage from the Face 2 Face wrap party with the amazing Jordis Unga singing.
PSS: Remember to pass on our kickstarter link! And I say "our" because it is YOU and ME who made this movie which = OUR.
