Facing East Kickstarter


Many of you know that I am producing a feature film called "Facing East," the story of a Mormon couple reeling and reevaluating after the suicide of their 24 year-old gay son. The film is based on the stunning play by Carol Lynn Pearson; screenplay by Guinevere Turner (Go Fish, American Psycho, The Notorious Bettie Page); directed by Will Swenson (Hair - Tony nominated, Priscilla Queen of the Desert). Anyway...

We have had a Kickstarter campaign running for the past several weeks and last night we reached our goal of $65,000 dollars! Such a great way to raise money for projects - as well as your blood pressure (if you don't reach your goal, you get nothing - Yikes!) But, we did it and still have 4 days to go to continue frosting the cake - as it were.

THANK YOU to all of you that donated and continue to support this film. I am overwhelmed and deeply grateful. I will keep you updated on its progress. Casting is underway and I am dying for the day when I can start name dropping.

Stay tuned...
