I'm making a movie. A weird comedy involving mind control and karaoke. The karaoke music is all my old songs. Having been informed that some very low-budget stuff gets into the festivals all the time,, I thought I'd finally give it a shot. It will be very low budget but even very low budget is more than one artistic type can afford sometimes.
The group that is helping me make this movie consists of a legion of actors, musicians and crew people I have worked with in the past and who are very enthusiastic about working on this film. The script is written, the cast is chosen, the crew is mostly assembled and the equipment is chosen. I just need to buy it.
That having been said, I was prepared to use very little money and the equipment I already owned to make this film but, you know, the more money that's behind this thing, the higher the production value and the easier it will be to make this a great movie.
I'm raising money to supplement my own wallet to pay for the camera(s), the mics, the lights and any props and locations that we need to pay for.
If any of you were entertained by any of my old solo shows, my recent plays including the Chicago Reader Highly Recommended, "Chair" or heard any of my songs played live and you always wondered if you'd ever hear about those lesbian sasquatches, anthrax shoes, and panic attacks again, this movie is one you've always wanted to see.
It's going to be a fun project and hopefully a funny movie.
