As you may recall, my old college chum Tony Jannelli -- filmmaker, musician, and all around cool guy -- is making a movie about the time in 1965 that the Velvet Underground, in their first paying gig, played a show at his New Jersey high school. An experience that, as you can imagine, changed a bunch of lives.
And yesterday came the amazing news -- the film's $30,000 pledge mark on Kickstarter was reached, practically at the very last minute, but reached nonetheless. I can't tell you how happy this makes me on numerous levels.
In any event, congratulations to everybody involved in the project -- I've seen rough bits of the animation and it's amazing -- and I'll keep you posted on the progress of the film as it develops.
In the meantime -- have a great weekend, one and all.
