Through this initial 2013 campaign, I’m asking my friends, family, and supporters of our FORGOTTEN HOLLYWOOD franchise to help us reach a 120-day goal of $5000. YOU can contribute ANY AMOUNT. This step will ensure the Develpment Phase, and we’ll be able to:
- Hire a research archivist to track down footage and photos; and secure licensing
- Hire a consultant / casting director to book actors and behind-the-scenes folks from Hollywood’s Golden Age; plus cinematic historians for original interviews
- Set up a production shoot to tape these candid moments
Again, here’s the link for your chance to participate:
I appreciate your official future consideration… And, THANKS SO MUCH to our valued initial contributors and supporters (above).
