Life in the land of dreams...and silicone.

NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: THE BOOK - OUR KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN!

I write this blog entry as a serious plea for help. No, not because I’m a sex addict (though sometimes I wonder…).

Because I’m involved in a two-and-a-half years in the making project that now needs YOUR help.

When I was a child, I discovered Wes Craven’s amazing A Nightmare on Elm Street. An instant fan, the film literally changed my life. Sure, I was part of the “Freddy Generation”: the eighties kids who were obsessed with Fred Krueger and Robert Englund. We just couldn’t get enough Freddy.

But in my case, there was more. I wanted to be a part of the films in some way. I wanted to make films like this or, at the least, pay tribute to them. It set me on my path as an aspiring filmmaker. And in high school…I thought: wouldn’t it be amazing to be involved in a book project that paid tribute to the film that started it all?

25 years later, here I am…wrapping up editing and watching layouts be finalized for the definitive book about the original film.

Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy: The Making of Wes Craven’s A Nightmare on Elm Street

Written by my friend and colleague, Thommy Hutson, edited by yours truly, featuring an all-new Foreword by Wes Craven himself, and an Afterword from Heather Langenkamp, this is the ultimate account of everything that went into envisioning, making, and releasing the film.

And then some.

IF YOU THINK YOU ALREADY KNOW THE WHOLE  STORY…YOU’RE DREAMING!

Featuring all-new, expanded interviews with key cast and crew (such as Craven, Englund, Langenkamp) as well as those who worked on the film but have never spoken about their experience in a public interview, there are stories told that will make any fan’s head spin. Plus, the book is stuffed with rare and never-before-seen photos that were unearthed during the creation process for the book.

We have a Kickstarter campaign to make this book a reality. We’re at 76% funded, we’re in the final stretch…and we NEEDyour help.

Go to http://tinyurl.com/lwewvn3 and check out our campaign. We have some amazing Reward Tiers for contributors.

—Starting at $50, you can get a shipped copy of this hardcover, 200+page, coffee-table sized book of your very own!

—At $75 and up, Elm Street Celebs will autograph your shipped book. People like the author, Heather Langenkamp, Amanda Wyss, and the gloved one himself…Robert Englund!

This is literally a lifelong dream of mine…and we desperately need your help to make it come true.

If we don’t reach out funding goal, the book will not be published. Please don’t let that happen…contribute today.

Remember, your contribution can be a PRE-ORDER for a copy of this amazing book. As I said, go to the link, check it out for yourself! There;s sure to be the perfect Reward Tier for you or a fan you know!

If you love horror, Freddy Krueger, A Nightmare on Elm Street, or the man himself, Wes Craven, then this is the book for you! Check out the Tweet from Wes himself…with that support, how can you NOT be persuaded to help?!

And remember…whatever you do…HELP SUPPORT THE CAMPAIGN!

Some pics of the Costume Contest and events and fun at the Aero Theater’s Friday the 13th Mini-Marathon last Friday, September 13, 2013 in Santa Monica, California.

Ruben Morales was the King of this evening, rockin’ and delighting the crowd with his version of Jason Voorhees from FRIDAY THE 13th, PART VII, while my wife, Jennifer, and I rocked the event with our takes on Ginny Fields and Jason Voorhees from FRIDAY THE 13th, PART 2.

There were three contests; Trivia, Costume, and Scream. Street Foods Cinema, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, and the American Cinematheque gave out gobs of prizes, including 13 copies of the new BluRay boxed set, buttons, and cash for the top three winners in the costume contest.

Needless to say, in the costume contest, Ruben came in 1st.  But my wife and I placed 2nd!  Here’s some footage of us “workin’ the crowd” during the contest:

AND…my wife took 3rd in the screaming contest, which can be partially seen here: http://instagram.com/p/eOP0aZkst2/

After the contests, the crowd was thrilled with big-screen presentations of the first four films from the series and was also treated to special guests, including some of the good folks at Bloody-Disgusting.com, Mark Swift, Todd Farmer, and Robbie Morgan!

All in all, it was an AMAZING night!

So, it turns out Jennifer and I also made it into an issue of ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY!  You can see me really clearly…but, unfortunately, she’s sort of obscured.  But, hey…we made it in, at least!
