Why get involved?

Do you like to laugh? Do you enjoy films? Do you want to be associated with a movie that just in its development stage has attracted a lot of attention from broadcasters? Do you want to see your name up on the big screen? Do you want to go to a movie premiere? Do you want to be involved with a film that speaks to many people and will be seen all over?

Gayle Kirschenbaum's last film, A Dog's Life: A Dogamentary, received so much press from a front cover feature in the New York Times to multiple appearances on televison shows including NBC's Today Show. And the press keeps coming. It premiered on HBO in 2005 and was released widely on DVD with rave reviews. The film was completed over two years ago and has played and continues to play in festivals, theaters and cultural venues all over the world. The popular website, the film and the its Shih Tzu star have a fan club leading to the launch of the Dogamentary Newsletter.

With Gayle's track record, including winning an Emmy for her first film and many other awards during her career, you can be sure her new film, My Nose, will enjoy a long life with much acclaim. Okay, so here's the details.

Where are we?

They're waiting. Broadcasters including HBO and distributors are eagerly waiting for the finished product and a couple have offered to put in finishing funds (that covers some of the editing costs). But we need more dough to get to that point. That's where you come in. This is a great opportunity for you to support a "talented Emmy award-winning filmmaker". If you know Gayle Kirschenbaum and how she works, then you know this film will be seen all over. From early reactions we can tell you that this film will be well received and one which many will relate to.

Fundraising house parties

There is another opportunity: If you can really get behind this project and want to work with Gayle Kirschenbaum, we're looking for people who can orchestrate fundraising house parties. That means you get a bunch of your friends, colleagues, acquaintances together and host an evening where she shows this trailer and fills the crowd in on the film, its current state and where it's heading. It's a fun night where we all get to laugh, mingle and My Nose keeps getting funded on its way to the finish line.
