It’s been an interesting weekend for me and there are several items that came up that I wanted to post about, but I didn’t want to deluge everyone with a series of back-to-back posts over the course of a day. So, I’ve decided to deliver all of my most recent news in one simple, handy and effective post, which I’ve dubbed the Mini-Chaos News Roundup. Herewith are my newsworthy announcements: Check out the Special Announcements
Well, the Kickstarter campaign for my feature film, Never Stop Living, (an inspirational sports drama about a young girl who wants nothing more than to pitch in one final game before succumbing to her terminal illness) is a week old, and so far, just over a handful of people have contributed. That’s awesome and I want thank all of those who have taken the time to do so! And with 27 days left, there’s still plenty of time to get people excited and help bring this tremendous story to life. Find out how you can help
It’s official! The crowd-funding campaign for my new feature film, the inspirational sports drama, Never Stop Living, is now LIVE on Kickstarter. Over the next 35 days (ending at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, September 29), I’m hoping to raise at least $250,000 to help fund all aspects of the film, including pre- and post-production costs, casting at least one well-known actor (at the top of my list: Phoebe Cates, Chloe Grace Moretz and Josh Duhamel), marketing materials and major film festival submissions.

Recently, I was fortunate enough to work as 1st Assistant Director on a trailer to help promote the Kickstarter campaign for a new interactive web-based children’s show, “Garden of Tomorrow.” The campaign seeks to raise $50,000 to produce the very first half-hour episode of what is to be a fun, educational series in the vain of “Sesame Street” for kids aged 3-7.
Ronald Shattuck, owner of the Fallbrook Film Factory (and producer of my short film, My Necklace, Myself), came up with the idea of “Garden of Tomorrow” along with the show’s star and inspiration, Arlene Yates (known to her fans as Lady Arlene), who has been writing and performing music for over forty years and has spent most of her career writing for and entertaining children. Together, they came up with an idea that wouldn’t just present fun, educational entertainment to the kids, but actually allow them to interact with the series, encouraging viewers of all ages to help to write skits, play games and participate in contests through the website (for which will separate pages for kids and their parents to navigate and enjoy) that will present “Garden of Tomorrow” in all of its clean, wholesome glory.
