The great chaps at Arts Professional have run a piece on my crowdfunding experience. If you remember, I was aiming to pay professional actors and director to help workshop my quantum mechanics script.
Here’s a link to my original crowdfunding video – https://youtu.be/JTjduZoCWpk
And here’s the piece: happy reading!
I’ve just had an astonishing 12 hours.
Overnight, the talentbacker campaign for script development for the quantum script (see previous post) hit and then exceeded its target with 6 days still to go. It’s not like running a race, cheered on by friends. It’s like asking them to run for you, while you keep yelling from the sidelines.
Then, I got a mail saying I’ve won a place on Screen Yorkshire’s Triangle 2014!
Links and details will follow, but there are times for sharing and times for more info. After bombarding everyone I know to ask for cash for three weeks, now is definitely a time for just sharing.
And then shutting up.
To fund or not to fund? A Q&A on QM with actor Annette Chown
The thoughtful and thought-provoking Bristol actor Annette Chown has a bit of a thing about quantum mechanics. Which is lucky for me.
Annette has very generously given over a blog posting to a Q&A with me about my quantum mechanics script and current attempts to crowdfund enough cash to pay for a day in the rehearsal room. Here it is: http://downstagewrite.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/to-be-or-not-to-be-that-is-question-but.html.
It goes without saying: I’d love you to be one of our theatre angels – please feel very at liberty to pledge your support before 15 January ’14 here : http://www.talentbacker.com/talents/view/gill-kirk) – You can start at a fiver and there are quantum-related rewards!
