This project took me 2 and a half years to complete. I was naive enough in January of 2011 to think that it would only take me a couple of months, but I have learned that lesson and many more through this production.
The purpose of this film is to shine some light on an incredible community that is often overlooked, so I encourage you to above all share this with anybody who you think may enjoy it.
Your support means the world to me, I kicked the whole thing off with a kickstarter campaign, that $3K got me up and running with this project. In the end, I spent another $5K on top of that to make this into a reality. Any donations/merchandise purchased will of course help me recoup these expenses, which is immensely appreciated, but please don't feel obligated. Watching and sharing is enough for me, that's why I made the film in the first place, for people to (hopefully) enjoy and share!
Any support in the form of donations (via the tip jar above) would also be welcomed and immensely appreciated, but do not feel that it is expected or necessary. If I had made this film with the intentions of recouping the expenses/making money, I'd be that much more naive.
You can also support by buying merchandise from any of the bands, going to their shows and/or by purchasing a t-shirt, dvd or a pay-what-you-want digital download at brooklynrocksteady.com
Also! We love screenings, if you'd like to host one in your town, please get in touch! My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I'd love to come hang out and share my movie!
Thank you all so much for your support, it made this project possible and makes it all feel worth it.
