They did it! Bernal neighbors Joe Talbot and Jimmie Fails pulled it off!
During the last few weeks, they blew out their goal and raised more than $59,000 on Kickstarter to produce their oh-so-promising feature-length film, The Last Black Man in San Francisco. Woo hoo!
But now that they’ve gotten the money, the next step is to build the base:
You guys are rockstars. The incredible support we’ve received from you has not only helped us hit out 50k goal — it’s demonstrated there’s an audience for this film. And that’s gotten the attention of folks in the industry.
So for the final week of our campaign, instead of aiming to hit x amount of dollars, we’re setting a goal of 1200 backers. That means even if you only have $1 dollar to give, your contribution sends a loud message to those watching that you want to see this movie get made. And that is priceless.
This stuff really matters; brilliant a media project that comes with a proven fan-base is vastly more bankable than a brilliant media project without a demonstrated audience. So if you’re at all inclined, please donate a few shekels to Neighbor Joe and Neighbor Jimmie before the June 3 deadline, so that they might go forth to bring cinematic glory to all of Bernal.
Still need convincing? They made this death-defying video, just for you:

Happy to support local folks doing good work. Nice project lads!
And, gosh, I am digging that animation at the top. Mesmerizing. Why does it look so familiar? Is it just that I remember the early 90s?
