                      THIS IS OUR CHANCE TO TELL OUR STORY!
         BUT IT GOES AWAY DECEMBER 19th IF WE DON'T ACT NOW!

                                  "THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION"                             HOW A RADIO STATION, POLITICS AND                         ROCK AND ROLL CHANGED EVERYTHING 

Why We Need Your Generous Pledge Now!For the past five years, as hundreds of supporters have shared their personal collections of rare tapes, photos, and memorabilia, we have been producing a feature-length documentary film, The American Revolution.  This innovative Kickstarter fund raising campaign will provide the support needed to complete the documentary, which is being produced for theatrical and PBS release in 2012 by the Peabody Award-winning Lichtenstein Creative Media, in conjunction with the non-profit Filmmakers Collaborative,  . 

For us to reach our fundraising goal, it is critically important for all of those like yourself, whose life was affected, enhanced, and touched by the legendary underground radio station WBCN, to make a generous pledge RIGHT NOW!   And if your life wasn’t changed by WBCN, but if you are inspired by the station’s amazing story, then we ask that you please join this critical effort and make a pledge now! 

Whether you pledge $1, $100 or $10,000 dollars, we need your pledge to help us continue our work on this landmark documentary, being produced by the Peabody Award-winning Lichtenstein Creative Media, winner of 60 major broadcast journalism awards, in conjunction with the non-profit Filmmakers Collaborative. 

You may have already helped gather some of the stories, recordings and photos that will be included in the finished film.  Or have some to contribute.  Now, we urge you to make a generous pledge now so this inspirational and moving story can be documented and preserved for today's generation and for all time.    

About Our ProjectThis ground-breaking, non-profit production, for release theatrically and for PBS, will show the exciting, untold story of the legendary free-form radio station WBCN-FM and underground media in Boston from 1968 to 1974.

WBCN and its listeners helped fuel the dramatic social, cultural and political changes that took place locally and nationally during the era, and the film literally brings you back to that time and place. It was a period when millions of Americans took to the streets in support of the anti-war and civil rights movements along with women’s and gay liberation, and the emergence of environmentalism, helping to end a war and drive two unpopular sitting presidents from office.

As a result of newly discovered rare tapes, photos and memorabilia,  you’ll see the dramatic transformation of rock and roll into a cultural and social force, including the emergence of iconic rock and roll bands, like Led Zeppelin, The Who, the Grateful Dead and others, in their seminal days at the Boston Tea Party dance hall, whose back room was WBCN's first home. 

You’ll hear Bruce Springsteen’s first ever radio interview/performance and a late night, live in-studio acoustic performance by Jerry Garcia and Duane Allman.

With the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street movements bringing people into the streets, this film will offer a much needed resonance and relevance as you see the powerful similarities between then and now. 

But we need your help to finish this project!

Please make a pledge RIGHT NOW and join our campaign to complete the production of  The American Revolution, the story of how a radio station, politics and rock and roll changed everything. Your generous pledge right now  is absolutely critical and we have some fantastic Donor Gifts to thank you. (And, by the way, you won't be charged a penny until after December 19, when we meet our goal.)

We changed things once. We can do it again. Please make a pledge right now and spread the word to others. 

Thank you for your support.

WHAT IS "KICKSTARTER" AND WHY DO YOU NEED MY HELP? 

Kickstarter is the largest funding platform for creative projects in the world. Over one million people have pledged and donated funds to over 10,000 projects from the worlds of music, art, film, technology, design, food, and other creative fields. What makes Kickstarter different than other funding efforts is that funds pledged only become donations when we meet our goal by the deadline.  That's why we need your help! 

The American Revolution has been called the first “crowd-sourced” documentary as more than 50,000 individual photographs, audio clips, film and video segments, pieces of memorabilia and graphic art have been gathered, applicable rights obtained, and the material digitized with the help of supporters from all over the country. And now, we need your support to finish the film. 

The funds being sought are to complete the filming of the interviews for this non-profit production, and to begin the editing process in order to finish the documentary for the Fall 2012 Sundance Festival deadline.  If we raise additional funds, they will be used to complete the editing of the film.  


HOW DO I PLEDGE?  IS IT TAX-DEDUCTIBLE?  
Donations are charged to your credit card through a special, secure section of Amazon.com dedicated to Kickstarter.  You just "click" to make your pledge, and "click" again.  That's it!  If you need help making your pledge, please call us at (617-682-3700) or email us (Kickstart@LCMedia.com) and we will be happy to help. 

All donations made through Kickstarter in support of the non-profit production of The American Revolution will be received by Filmmakers Collaborative, thefilm's501(c)(3) fiscal sponsor and are tax-deductible.    

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  Making your pledge to Kickstarter, with its secure Amazon.com interface, iseasy!

 Remember you are not charged until we meet our goal!

TELL ME ABOUT THE DONOR REWARDS. We set out to create a group of special "one of a kind" donor rewards to thank our supporters.  They include exclusive limited edition works from artists and photographers from the era who are assisting with the film (see below), as well as an invitation to a special private screening and reception in Boston in the Fall of 2012 at the famed Paradise Rock Club.  There's even the chance to work on the film for a day as a Production Assistant and get a credit in the film.  

We are even giving away a authentic WBCN gold record to one lucky supporter!  And everyone who helps gets a thanks or credit in the film!  

CAN I GIFT A DONOR REWARD TO SOMEONE ELSE? Absolutely.  It's great idea especially with the holidays coming up!  Just make your pledge to the film.  When we reach the deadline, you will receive an email confirming your donation and donor reward.  Just provide the address of where you want your reward(s) sent.   It's that simple.  

CAN I GET MY DONOR REWARD DELIVERED BY THE HOLIDAYS?Yes.   Just contact us at Kickstart@LCMedia.com and let us know your needs. For a small additional overnight charge we will get it to you in time for the holidays.  

WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO HELP? Thank you for asking.  You can be an outreach partner and spread the word,   Tweet it.   Post it on your Facebook page.   Write about it.   Shout it from the rooftops.  Let everyone know about the film and how they can help "Kickstart The American Revolution." 

WHERE WILL THE FILM BE SHOWN? 
The film will be shown at film festivals, followed by a limited theatrical release, public television broadcast (we're currently in the PBS Outreach Pipeline for 2012) and its home/web/educational distribution.  Following the release of the film, we will conduct an 18-month educational outreach and community engagement campaign using screenings of the film by schools, universities, libraries, and media advocacy and community groups, to facilitate discussions about how media was, and can be used, to create social change.  As with our previous productions, a comprehensive facilitation guide is being created to help use the film to promote discussion in these educational and community settings.  

WHERE CAN I FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE FILM?  You can read and see more about the film, our crew and advisers at the film's website: www.TheAmericanRevolution.fm  

NEED HELP OR MORE INFO?  CONTACT US! If you have any other questions, just ask us.  We'll be happy to answer them. Just email us at Kickstart@LCMedia.com or call 617-682-3700.
