  1. Because I like you guys, you get first shot at tickets. (And if you're in the Chicago area, block out the night on November 15th, Jay's Birthday.) But if you're in Connecticut, get your tickets asap. There are only 85 available for this sneak peek. And it'll be the only public screening until the World Premiere in November. https://nhdocs2021.eventive.org/schedule/where-are-you-jay-bennett-sneak-peek-plus-live-tribute-to-jay-wilco-60e08432ecd9850045da0443
  2. Hello, Wanted to give you guys a massive update on the documentary... When we last spoke I told you the film was complete and that the next big steps were finishing end credits, a sound mix, color correction, legal, and insurance. Well, color correction is complete, and the end credits are almost done. We will however be launching a Kickstarter before the end of the year to help with legal and insurance, which are more costly than I even want to think about. I also told you we began submitting to film festivals. An
  3. Greetings, We locked picture on Where are you, Jay Bennett? last night, and immediately submitted to our first two film festivals. The animation is complete. The next big steps are finishing end credits, a sound mix, color correction, legal, and insurance. But the film is pretty damn amazing if I do say so myself. It's running 1 hour and 45 minutes long. The plan now is to submit to film festivals. Play the festival circuit through to at least Spring 2021...then the DVD/streaming release. More details as we know them. So, just wanted to give everyone that exciting update. We will be doing
  4. Thank you so much to everyone who helped make this one of our best Kickstarter campaigns ever. 247%...wow! You guys rock, and we promise you this film will as well! I just received a new piece of animation yesterday. It's coming along beautifully. We'll start submitting to film festivals in the next couple of months. Can't wait to show it to the world.

  6. bustedafternoon quoted your post. I told him not to listen to it. Pretty simple.
  7. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! We made our stretch goal with 7 days to go, so we've added a second stretch: $22,500. If we reach this there will no need for a final Kickstarter. We will have everything we need to finsh all post-production on the film. Now help us get there, so we can pay for all those fun finishing expenses like legal, insurance, mixing, color correction! We can do it in the name of rock and roll! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gormanbechard/where-are-you-jay-bennett-documentary-needs-animation
  8. Kickstarter is fine is you look at who's making the film. We've run 40 successful campaigns, and have financed 11 features completely through the site. Eight of them are available on DVD and all streaming platforms. The 9th has been playing festivals since last year. The tenth is premiering on March 5th. And both of those are being released on DVD/streaming in Sept. We have a standing distribution deal and have NEVER not finished a film. This campaign is past 100 funded and we still have a week to go. That's all there for anyone to read. Don't go by someone who only reads what he want
  9. THANK YOU SO MUCH! We made our initial Kickstarter goal with 10 days to go. Now help us get even further so that there will not need to be a final Kickstarter for all those fun finishing expenses like legal, insurance, mixing, color correction! We can do it in the name of rock and roll! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gormanbechard/where-are-you-jay-bennett-documentary-needs-animation
  10. When it comes to music, there's no such thing as too personal. Yesterday, my all time favorite band sent me a preview of their first new music in years. Just one song. I cried like a baby through my first listen because it made me so happy. I listened a second time, and damn if I didn't start crying all over again. Music speaks to parts of us we can never truly understand. And thank God, or whomever, that it does.
  11. First off, your original post was rude and full of accusations, many of which were already addressed in the original KS. If you had a question, have you every bothered to ask? I answer every question that comes my way. Seriously sorry if you don't like the way I run my company, make my films, promote my films, etc. Don't know what else to say. The film that we started funding prior to Jay Bennett, which is called Seniors, is premiering on March 5th. Bennett is next in line. As we say right at the end of the first KS: We always finish our films. They always get distribution. That
  12. If you read the entire first Kickstarter, it says: "Additional funds raised over $25,000 will go toward post-production, insurance, a great sound mix, maybe some animation, an amazing score and soundtrack, and film festival fees. (Yes, making a film is expensive.) So, let’s aim for $75,000 or more!" That's all pretty self- explanatory. As for the money raised in the original Kickstarter, it states: "The money raised for Where are you, Jay Bennett? will go toward the completion of filming, a lot more interviews!" So, no, never said we were done filming in that Kickstarter. And the las
  13. It's Monday morning. The Super Bowl is over. Got two weeks left on the campaign. And I promise you this is the movie Wilco fans have been waiting for. Please watch the new trailer, pick a great reward, have your name in the end credits, long live rock and roll! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gormanbechard/where-are-you-jay-bennett-documentary-needs-animation

  15. Have any funny, cool, interesting, touching, insightful, awesome or otherwise great stories about Jay Bennett? We're collecting those stories about Jay to help make our new documentary, WHERE ARE YOU, JAY BENNETT? even better. If you'd like to tell us your Jay story on camera send an email to our co-producer jan@whatwerewethinkingfilms.com briefly telling us what your story is, and where you are located. We will be in the Chicago area from January 11th thru the 15th. We look forward to hearing from you!
