hey everybody, Kevin Hallagan again. I just launched a kickStarter campaign to raise funds for the first documentary of my career. It's going to be a wild ride and extremely difficult, but I know I can do it. here's the link: http://kck.st/N3Ni9c

My documentary is not just about Binghamton, Ny, it's about how economics and the environment are codependents whose sum is overall living quality. I'm using Binghamton as a representation of many areas in the United States that got hit hard by the recession, but instead of it being a story about loss and hardship it's a story of hope for the future.

Please check out my link and spread it around the internet. i need to get it seen by as many people as possible if I want to reach my goal by July 27.

Thanks D-Word!

-Kevin

I'm selling my Sony NEX FS-100 (body only) and replacing it with a NEX FS-700.
The camera is one year old and is in perfect condition.

Description:
The NEX-FS100 is an interchangeable lens camcorder featuring a Super 35mm sensor equivalent in size to a Super35mm film camera (same as PMW-F3).

With a lens adapter, it will except almost any 35mm lens... including Nikon, Zeiss, Sony, Minolta and Canon.

Hi all,

I'm in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign and I invite you all to check it out. http://kck.st/LyRWgk

Coded Stories: Art, Bar Codes, & Mapuche Identity
Coded Stories, a documentary film, weaves together contemporary art with indigenous rights to convey the struggle of the Mapuche of Chile to preserve their culture and way of life. The goal of Coded Stories is to spread awareness about the plight of the Mapuche, a people whose traditions are under serious threat.

The film follows artist Guillermo Bert, a Chilean-born, Los Angeles-based artist whose recent work was inspired by the similarities between Mapuche textile patterns and contemporary bar codes (QR codes). Bert's art raises questions about identity, globalization, modernization, and challenges facing indigenous cultures in the Americas.

Please help spread the word. The campaign ends July 17, and we have quite a way to go. Thank you!

Our next DocuClub screening will take place on Thursday July 19 at DCTV, at 7p.m., located at 87 Lafayette (at Walker). This month, we will screen a rough cut of Paul Devlin’s THE FRONT MAN. Our moderator will be Arts Engine’s own Phil Lane.

If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to docuclub@artsengine.net.


Admission at DCTV is free for current DocuClub members and $6 for non-members.


Tickets will be sold at the door, cash only.


Doors open at 6:30 p.m. No admittance after 7:15 p.m.



THE FRONT MAN is a hilarious romantic musicomedy that also emerges as the life story of an iconic American character. Jim and his wife Christie struggle with the merits of abandoning a loose and carefree post-adolescent lifestyle in favor of starting a family and pursuing comfort and security. For restless artists, however, does the path to finally becoming grownups also bring happiness?

Award-winning filmmaker Paul Devlin (SLAMNATION, POWER TRIP, BLAST!) has been following the story of his childhood friend Jim Wood for over 12 years. Jim and his band, Loaded Poets, represent Everyman rock ‘n’ rollers, still tirelessly recording music in their basements 20 years and several hundred songs since they formed in high school.

A dynamic, outrageous spokesman, Jim’s humor is as contagious as his music. But eventually he must answer the question all performers face, especially when the audiences dwindle and the Rock Star promise has faded: What is the purpose of creating one’s art?

Jim and Christie invite us into their lives with intelligence and humor to discover what happens when the Rock ‘n’ Roll Dream and the American dream collide.

A five-time Emmy winner for his work on NBC’s Olympics and CBS’s Tour de France, Paul has created numerous independent projects including 4 feature-length, theatrically-released, nonfiction narrative films: SLAMNATION, FREESTYLE: THE ART OF RHYME, POWER TRIP and BLAST!. These critically acclaimed films have screened for millions of viewers in over 120 countries, and been featured on The Colbert Report, NPR, BBC World News, PBS, The New York Times, Variety, etc. Paul has won over a dozen international film festival awards and received an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Documentary.
