Where the funds are going:

To date the project has been completely self-funded, so any amount helps! Anthony will need an experienced cinematographer and sound recordist for particular shoots on Kauai. He’ll also be interviewing the legendary B-movie director Roger Corman in LA and would like to hire a crew to get the best results out of this special opportunity.
