Help Kickstart "Wall Writers: Graffiti in It's Innocence"
The Wall Writers project has recently launched a kickstarter page in an attempt to raise money to launch the film. The makers of the movie need to buy rights to the archival stock footage used in the film, money to fund post production work, and to have the film premiere in New York and Los Angeles before the movie is generally distributed.
They are requesting the help of the graffiti and street art community at large in making this monumental film about the earliest days of graffiti a reality. Check out the promo video trailer above and the kickstarter statement from Roger Gastman, the creator of the film below and support grassroots graffiti filmmaking.
Message from Roger Gastman:
I am writing with an update on the WALL WRITERS film and to let you know we have a Kickstarter to raise the funds to get it out to the world. The link:
Why a Kickstarter for the Film you ask?
I have had several distribution offers in the past few weeks. While the distribution is great, the money is not. As I’m sure you all know the stock footage and post production work on this film is not cheap.
So far I have funded the project 100% myself and will be very happy to just break even on it. To be able to make the right decision about the distribution I don’t want money to dictate it. Therefore I have decided to do a kickstarter campaign to raise the funds I had hoped for from a distributor. I can assure you this money is 100% going towards getting the film out there and nothing more.
I would very much appreciate if you post this where ever you can – and pass it on to anyone that you know that is interested in the true history of graffiti.
