Big fan of Hal Hartley over here (specially the early, funnier work :) - whoa, a double shout out - including a Woody Allen reference, go me), so, it made my day to hear that 1) not only is Hartley making a new movie, but that 2) he is using Kickstarter to raise funds (& to spread the early word about the movie). See, what many people may not know is that using Kickstarter is in itself a marketing thing - it creates a story that people can dig into (whether the project needs the money or not), share, & thus create some buzz for the project long before it is ready for the market. Anyway, go give some money to this project while I try to figure out when I should try to use Kickstarter again for one of my film projects (my first Kickstarter project was a disaster, but hey, #2 might be awesome sauce):
my previous 500K Watts... blog had my full name as the address, so that one was a little too difficult to give out fast when on a quick clandestine mission in brooklyn & you meet a soul who could use the extra spiritual* wattage from that blog, so as a community service to the world i got a new blog addy - shorter - 500kwatts - for the same content i was planning on for the earlier version of the blog. there it is, the origin story, good stuff coming with the next refresh.
*spiritual - a strictly secular spirituality, all real individuals are a real part of the real universe use that fact for inspiration consider spinoza's view of the universe & build from there type of thing
