My chat with Tim Scully


While writing our film and planning the shoot, I've been chatting with Tim Scully. I thought you might enjoy a little clip of that conversation, so here it is! 

(This is a Skype™ conversation, recorded using an app called 'Call Record.' Our actual film will look a bzillion percent better.)

Update #4

The wire, and what's next:


Well, tomorrow night is our deadline, folks. I just want to say that even if we don't make our funding objective, this has been a very valuable experience. It really helps me to know that there are at least 22 people in the world who are willing to put their money where their mouth is; and many, many more who would help out if they could. 

To all of you, I just want to say: this film will be made, come hell or high water, I promise. Nick and Tim and I have been talking about it for ten years already, so the time has come. Consider it kickstarted.

If you want to keep in touch regarding our progress, you can always reach me through my web site, Send me a note and I'll keep you in the loop. Watch for the film's facebook page as well - it'll be ready to launch any minute now.

Thanks & thanks again. Stay tuned. 

Meanwhile, check out this great article in the Guardian:

"...documentaries are among the most valuable, neglected cultural forms of our time. They aren't all good, to be sure, but the best are unusual, persuasive, seductive. And their success has something to do with the way they are taken for granted, casually watched. Few old things have flourished in the cultural chaos of this century, but docs have steadily consolidated their hold on a small portion of the contemporary consciousness. Film stars want to make or sponsor them. Sometimes, if you squint hard enough, they really do seem like the new rock 'n' roll."
