NYC IMPRESSARIO MICHAEL DORF KICKS IN $10,000 AT KICKSTARTER
FOR THE THOMAS CHAPIN FILM
(Published: March 29, 2013)
Michael Dorf, founder of New York City's old Knitting Factory and City Winery, pledged $10,000 today in the final hours of the Thomas Chapin film's 45-day Kickstarter.com campaign, which will end at 11:45 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday Eastern Standard Time. Dorf was the lateThomas Chapin's friend and promoter in the 80's and 90's and put him on his "Knitting Factory" record label, as well as on the big jazz stages in Europe.
"Email everyone, tell them I am pledging $10,000 today and am challenging them to put up the rest. Let's get this film done!" Dorf told filmmaker Stephanie J. Castillo today. She launched this online fundraising campaign to raise the $50,000 needed to shoot her film this summer. "With just hours to go at Kickstarter, I believe we will see all the backers we need step up to meet Michael's awesome challenge," says Castillo. "There's a very strong will out there to see this NYC legend's story and music shared with the world!"
So I'm putting out the call to join Michael, to COME NOW and BACK the film at http://www.kickstarter.co...\"
