"Mingus on Mingus" Documentary Film Project
(Published: December 13, 2011)
We are Orangethenblue, a creative team formed to develop and promote the relationship of film and music through performance. Based between Berlin and New York City, Orangethenblue is built upon a strong vision and outlook to support and realize innovative films that leave an indelible mark on audiences. We are currently filming a documentary on Charles Mingus directed by his grandson and Orangethenblue founder Kevin Ellington Mingus entitled "Mingus on Mingus". We are at the beginning of the production phase and are currently conducting interviews of people that knew and played with Charles Mingus.
We are in the final days of an ambitious fund-raising campaign through the Kickstarter platform. Our Kickstarter campaign has only five days left to reach our goal, and every contribution matters. We have a big challenge ahead of us, and we would like to be able to count on your help.
"Mingus on Mingus" is a grassroots project whose independence relies on the true jazz tradition of the collective. It has been through those dedicated to the art forms of jazz and independent film that the project has been, and will continue, to grow. A successful Kickstarter campaign means we will be able to move forward with the project and capture essential, time sensitive moments that we might otherwise loose. The making of the documentary will certainly be a long road, and having the financial resources to begin our journey is crucial. We know it will not be possible without your help and support.

Thank you for you help!
All our best,
Valeria Rios & Kevin Ellington Mingus
