This coming Tuesday the Rogues Gallery Writers will convene for rehearsal for their upcoming mockumentary “Behind the Prose”. Filming will begin Sunday, May 22, 2011. The mockumentary will feature the Rogues and their upcoming book project The Method Writers.
Once filming is complete, the video will be placed on Kickstarter.com. Kickstarter is a funding site for creative projects. Benevolent folk drop by and pledge money toward the various creative projects listed on the site. Once funding is accomplished, the money gets dispersed and voi la! Funding! Yippee!!
Part of the book project will be a set of trading cards depicting characters in the book. One side of the card will be the character’s pic while the other side will have some character info. Another aspect of the project will be a deck of playing cards featuring the character pics. Also on the docket are calendars, mugs t-shirts and hats.
Once the film is on Kickstarter, the Rogues would greatly appreciate your pledge. We will have 30 days in which to meet our pledge goals or go back to the drawing board. Please consider helping us complete this project with proper funding. Stay tuned. We should be going live with the fundraiser in June!
