Thanks to all of you, dear backers, we exceeded the funding goal for The Front Man!
Kickstarter has turned out to be a truly energizing experience and your generous support has been exhilarating.
Now it’s our turn to come through for you. We’ve already started working on putting together your rewards – Jim is picking out the 45RPM records, we’re planning the Record Room night and deciding how Outrageous those Outtakes can be.
And of course, we’ll be working on finishing The Front Man right away. I have already hired some very experienced, objective eyes to help me fine tune the cut. After that a Fair Use lawyer will make sure all the outside footage and music conforms to Best Practices in Fair Use. That will allow us to lock picture and move on to the online, color correction and audio sweetening.
We’ll let you know when we finish up the movie. Keep an eye out for a survey from Kickstarter, so we can get the info we need to send out the special pre-release DVD of The Front Man as well as the other rewards.
And then we’ll look forward to announcing the premiere! Very exciting!
