Thanks for your support!!!

Hello My Friends,

Just wanted to send a long overdue thank you for those of you who supported the Kickstarter project for the independent film, Vacancy. Although, the project did not meet its anticipated goal, and subsequently was not funded, a lot of good came out of it. The film’s director, Karen St. John-Vincent, made many crucial connections and learned a lot about marketing an independent film. She’s working on other fundraising efforts as I write this. I will let you know any upcoming opportunities to support this artistic work!

Again, thank you for all your “likes”, good energy, and monetary support that you gave!

Cheers,

Megan

had to do it… Please support this Project….Vacancy film

Hello My Awesome Friends!

I am writing you, again, in one last stitch effort to get support for my mom’s film, Vacancy.

What is Vacancy, you might ask. It is an independent art film. In a nutshell, it’s a film about three women at a kind of crossroads in their lives. Each of them has an awakening, and must choose to move forward with freedom, risk, and uncertainty, or take the more predictable path and recapitulate the same tired story.

What’s so great and important about the film? Well, it creatively and honestly portrays the very relevant conundrum of “fit-in and follow-suit” or “follow your dreams and don’t let the bastards drag you down.” (by the way, I made up both of those quotes – with some help from U2 – they’re good, right?!) Winking smile One thing that makes the film unique is that she is shooting the entire film with classic film reel – shot in CinemaScope. Some of film is cross-processed and she will be incorporating still photos, text, animation, and original music by Cleveland’s own, Kristine Jackson (an excellent blues singer and artist).

SO, WHY DOES SHE NEED MY SUPPORT? Here’s the deal… through the fundraising site, Kickstarter, she has ONLY 9 DAYS, 15 HOURS, AND 5 MINUTES TO MEET HER GOAL! If she does not meet her goal, then she LOSES EVERYTHING! UGH, UGH, AND DOUBLE UGH!

How do I pledge my support? She is fundraising through Kickstarter, which is a reputable and fantastic resource for artists to get funding to complete their projects. To check out her project, go to the link below:

She needs the mulla! Your “likes” on Facebook or Twitter are GREAT! Still, the only way to meet her goal is to pledge your support monetarily. You can pledge whatever, or you can select on a pledge amount: $1, $10, $20, $50, $100, $200 – $2500! As you’ll see at the Kickstarter page, with your pledge of $10 or more you will receive complimentary gift packages, which makes giving your support exciting and HELPS THIS PROJECT TO COMPLETION!!!!!!!!!! Her goal is $20,000. She has until May 26th to reach her goal!

How do I find out more about Megan’s mom, AWESOME ARTIST, KAREN ST. JOHN-VINCENT?
