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.
