How to Jail Kickstarter Campaign is Live!

The last big push is underway. Paul von Stoetzel is raising $3000 to shoot his short adaptation of my story "How to Jail." If you've never considered donating before, drop over to the Kickstarter site and take a look at the cool stuff you can walk way with, including free books, dvds, producer credit on the finished film and a special piece of short fiction developed just for the campaign and available to no one except folks who kick in money to help the production.

Also at the Kickstarter site, you can see the latest version of the trailer featuring Peter Christian Hansen as Henry, in a monologue about prison and family. We're under a strict deadline, so you have to get over and donate before June 30th!

It's a tough thing to raise money for a short film, but it will be a cool way to help showcase the talent of a group of professionals who are doing cool and innovative work in film and theater. Paul, his producer Chris Bueckers, Peter and the rest of the cast and crew are an impressive, accomplished bunch who will create something special if we can give them the resources.

The clock is ticking - please give what you can.
