Thank you all so much for the kind words and support! We had an amazing few days in LP, and we’re looking forward to the Indy Film Fest tomorrow and on the 22nd.
For those wondering about DVDs, we made tiny “limited edition” batch to share with those at the LP premiere. We’ll have just a few more tomorrow at the Indy screening, but then the first edition is SOLD OUT. We’ll be making more DVDs in the upcoming weeks and will soon set up a pre-order system to make sure you can get a copy for yourself and loved ones across the country. Check back for more info shortly, and hope to see you in Indy! And YES! We will be setting up more screenings in more cities… looking forward to bringing the film to your town, too.
Please join us for the world premiere of LaPorte, Indiana! We’re thrilled to announce three very special screenings on Wednesday July 14th (invite-only for friends and family of the film) and Thursday July 15th at the LaPorte Cinema. Mark it on your calendar! 7:30 show is sold out, and we’ve just added a 9:30pm show by popular demand! Get your tickets at B&J’s American Cafe, located at 607 Lincolnway in downtown LP. Can’t wait to see you later this week.

We’re psyched to share a sneak peek of our upcoming LaPorte, Indiana doc film. Let us know what you think! And please help us spread the word- pass it along!
From the inception of the film, we wanted this to be a community-based project. To date, we’ve bankrolled the filming out of our own wallets, and from the good will and donations from generous friends and strangers. We’ve decided to join with the good folks at Kickstarter to try to raise an initial
$7500 $12,000 to help defray production costs. We know the micro-financing model will help the film stay in loving hands as we finish up the editing and post-production phases. And beyond this, we want you to be part of the project! We’ll keep you posted with updates and keep you posted every step along the way. Every dollar donated will go towards the completion of this film and to help get it out to festivals in 2010. Any amount- large or small- helps towards sharing these stories.
Beyond this, we offer a ton of great rewards- from original Frank Pease photos to signed books to caricatures and songs written especially for you – maybe you have a sweetheart with an upcoming birthday? We’ve got all sorts of things that could not only impress- but also help support our project. Thanks so much for your generosity, we really appreciate it.
