So as I approach two months until book release, I’m going to be ramping up the promotion and that means, well, something I’m uncomfortable with — talking about myself and my projects all of the time. And since I don’t want to make this the Me Show I’ve decided to actively post about other things, other projects and works and creative endeavors, other cool shit that you should be looking at and reading and watching and supporting because there’s plenty of it out there.
First up is a short film that currently has a Kickstarter called Falling to Pieces. Yes, this film stars my girlfriend, but I’ve read the script and it’s great and this is going to be an amazing project. It will be making the film festival rounds when it’s ready and you have a chance to get it on it right now. It’s about grief, and losing a loved one, but it’s funny and endearing and real. I think it’s going to be an absolute triumph and I’m definitely supporting it. I hope you will, too. Even if you can’t fund the Kickstarter (and they take amounts as small as $1), please help spread the word. The script by Chris Connolly was a Finalist in Showtime’s Tony Cox Screenplay Competition at the 2013 Nantucket Film Festival. And if you’re still not convinced, here’s a short teaser taken directly from the Kickstarter page:
Cassandra woke up with his kidneys sleeping beside her.
When her husband Eddie died a few months ago, Cassandra didn’t have any idea that he had checked that box on his driver’s license to donate all his organs. His kidneys now belong to Sam, a surfer from Long Island who she met up with the night before. Some vodka, a little Kahlua, several rounds… It’s not very clear to either of them how this happened.
Thankfully she had an appointment with her shrink that day:
Doesn’t that look great? Trust me, it’s awesome. Support this film!
