Since moving to Brooklyn in 1997 I've met alternative comedians, downtown performance artists, alcoholic poets, content generators, flaky folk-rockers, the list goes on and one. One of the most slippery of all walks of life is anyone who calls himself an "independent filmmaker." I could tell you some awful stories, but that's for another post. Today I'm going to share something that's truly exciting and it was made by a writer-director who can deliver. (Don't take my word for it, just watch this trailer and see for yourself.)
Jeremy Carr's LUCID is like a David Lynch Batman movie, if Batman weren't in it.
Just think of the money you've spent on seeing bad movies over the years. Now here's your chance to put ten bucks towards a great movie that needs some help. The producers are raising funds to finish shooting LUCID, you can join the online fundraiser on Kickstarter. Every pledge helps -- seriously.
Learn more about the project here and see what you'll get by pledging: you can get an on-screen credit, a copy of Jeremy's short film ICE CREAM ANTS (featuring me as The Drunkard -- pictured above, this is one of my favorite roles), and a few people will get this cool T-shirt:
If you're crazy about movies, help this one get made. You won't regret it.
