About this project
WHO DO I THINK I AM? is a documentary that looks at the craft and challenges of mounting a one-person show. Be it stand-up or storytelling, on stage or screen, there are unique circumstances that face a performer working alone to entertain an audience. We will follow character actor Tom Lenk (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Transformers, Broadway’s Rock of Ages) to Edinburgh, Scotland where he will be performing his show “NERDGASM” at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival on August 12th for more than 300 people. Along the way we will document his experience performing at events prior to his appearance in Scotland. We will also interview successful and recognizable performers who have mounted their own one-person shows over the years. Did we mention this will be a documentary that will not make you depressed? It will in fact be funny and potentially uplifting? How's that for a change?!
Where the funds will go
The funds raised will go toward airfare, lodging, transportation, promotional materials, and hiring some local crew to help shoot the performance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. We’re talking the cheapest coach-class flights we can find and hostel living. This is art, people. We’re sacrificing.
While we are aiming to raise $15,000 to fund the production phase of this project, know that any amount above and beyond the base amount will be put to good use throughout post production. We are certainly capable of editing and finishing the film on our own without additional funds, but if we are fortunate enough to exceed our goal, we will hire an editor, composer, sound mixer, and colorist to help us finish the film. Plus you still get one of those awesome rewards over there!
