Dear Backers,

Today, ‘Diversity Rules Magazine On the Air’ hosted us as we discussed “Guys Reading Poems,” black-and-white cinematography and poetry. Listen for the first 60 seconds and you will hear Jim’s unique and empowering mission for his show. Special thanks to Jim Koury for selecting us and please take a listen to the show here:

Huge news today! We’re more than a third funded with 15 days left in the campaign!

To build the exciting last two weeks of our campaign, we’ll be throwing a fundraiser along with Haala Denim on behalf of “Guys Reading Poems.” It will take place at V Wine Bar in West Hollywood from 7 to 10 p.m. on Friday, April 11th. V Wine Bar is located at 903 Westbourne Drive in WeHo. Once again, Alexander Dreymon (“American Horror Story”) will host along with Daniel Berilla, Jason Fracaro, Hunter Lee Hughes, Debbie Vandermeulen and the rest of the cast of “Guys Reading Poems.”

This time, to make things a little more interesting, we’re having a RAFFLE for our BACKERS only. Haala Denim has generously agreed to give away two pairs of jeans and Michael S. Douglass has donated a headshot photography session. Details to come soon….

Now…drum roll….our one-sheet designed by Chris Friend! Thanks, Chris!
