Someone mentioned in the comments section awhile back that if I ever produced another documentary, I should try funding it with a KickStarter campaign. I have to admit, I wasn’t familiar with KickStarter. After looking into it, I love the idea of fans supporting the works they’d like to see produced.
I’m not currently planning another documentary (apart from the companion DVD for our kids’ book), but there’s one in production now that I suspect all you Fat Heads would love. It’s called Cereal Killers. Here’s the trailer:
And here’s an introduction by Donal O’Neill, the producer:
I can tell you from my Fat Head experience that most of expenses involved in getting a film out into the world occur after the shooting stops and the post-production begins. (Until Fat Head went to Netflix and finally drew a wide audience, I thought producing it was going to be the biggest financial mistake of my life.)
Here’s a link to the KickStarter page for Cereal Killers. I just went there and made a donation. I’d urge you to do the same. People who make films like this need and deserve our support.
