As you might know, the Kickstarter campaign for Stuck Outside of Phoenix the Movie was successfully funded, thanks to many of you. We have a movie, folks.
Despite this, there's still a great deal of concern about financing--like, do we have enough. If you'd care to donate to the cause, there's an ongoing campaign at Indiegogo where you can donate. The cool thing about this campaign is there is no minimum goal; all donations will go to the movie no matter what the final tally is. So, if you'd like to donate, please do.
Nico has finished two casting calls, plus a little get-together with the lead actors and some musical instruments at his place. As of this moment, we have a Hote, a Lola, a Lance, and Nico is going to play Digs. We're working hard to nail down the few final roles, but having so many principles pegged already is a big load off. I've seen the head shots and resumes, and I'm thrilled we're getting such quality actors. Nico even found a couple who are so good we need to find roles for them, so I'll be spending the next few days expanding current parts, or writing in new ones. It's going to be fun to watch these folks develop into the characters.
Next, Nico focuses on fun, sexy stuff like budget, insurance, and no doubt a hundred other things. Actual shooting begins in (gulp) March.
And last but not least, my longtime friend and cohort Jim Gerke is back in action in Tempe. Yep, the Gerkester is teaming up with David Rhodes (Phil Rhode's little bro) to bring you a night of solo acoustic euphoria at the Tempe Tavern tonight and every Monday night. Jim is one of my favorite singers in the world, and it's great to hear he's back where he belongs, which is entertaining you folks. The tunes start at 8:30. If I were in AZ, I'd be there.
That's it. I'm going to try to post a Stuck the Movie update here every Monday. Be sure to check back.
