NEW STRETCH GOALS | SPECIAL EDITION BLU-RAY | TOP REFERER BONUS


What’s up everyone?!

We’re back with some updates! First off, we’re introducing a Stretch Goal.

This campaign has gone way past anything we originally anticipated, and we really really appreciate all of the support. And because it’s going so well, we’re actually very close to being able to do something we didn’t think we would be able to...  

which is putting ‘A FAT Wreck” on a special edition blu­ray!. (only available as an indiegogo perk)

This is really bad ass, because we have so much content we’re not going to be able to fit into the feature length film, and we would really like to share with everyone.



So if we reach the $30,000 mark, we will be putting “A FAT Wreck” on blu­ray, complete with extra features and extended interviews.

So, we’re all pretty stoked that this is even a possibility, and once again thank you so much to everyone.

I’m happy to say we will be retroactively adding buttons and stickers to every physical perk that we are sending out.

We’re going international!

 The teaser trailer for “A FAT Wreck” is currently subbed in German and Japanese, and a few more to come, so we can share with FAT Wreck Chords fans all over the world. That’s awesome.




NEW PERK | A FAT SKATEDECK!! | STREAMING A NEW COVER

We are super stoked to team up with SAY-10 records to offer "A Fat Wreck" The Skateboard! The design by DoofToof isn't final but it is guarantee to be rad as HELL!

You can grab a package with just the skatedeck if you have already dontated or if you have not had a chance to donate we added a package so you get the vinyl and the skate deck as well as a bunch of other rad "A Fat Wreck" Stuff! Get stoked!

Check the Mockup from Doomtoof below!

Short Summary

We are not affiliated with FAT Wreck Chords. We are fans of the bands, the label, and the genre, and we want to tell a story of a time in music that inspired us like no other, from that point of view. The fan's perspective... The people FAT Wreck Chords influenced along the way. It's important to us and everyone who would like to see this film that we tell the story the right way; that we don't cut any corners or neglect any key interviews or footage for the sake of completion. We want to put as much FAT Wreck Chords content into this film as possible, and our contributors are key in making this happen for everyone. 


What We Need & What You Get

As it stands, our goal is to raise $7,500 USD. This isn't much money to produce a feature length documentary, and that's because so much of the film has already been shot, and some of the editing and production is currently under way. We have a small amount of traveling to do: Texas to California and back. A few fees, some cash into the perks, and the rest into production. We broke everything down here so you can see exactly where the contributions are going. If, by chance, we fail to meet our goal, we are still going to bring you the very best FAT Wreck Chords documentary possible with the resources we have available. We would be forced to sacrifice the FAT Wreck Chords Cover Song physical compilation, and some extra footage that we are really looking forward to, but the film will go on, come Hell or high water! Damnit! (If we go over, shit just gets better!)


The Impact

For better or worse, depending on who you ask, FAT Wreck Chords was a major player in the resurgence of punk rock in the early 90's with significant influence on the genre and and a very likely long lasting impact on the history of punk rock. This documentary aims to be the deepest look the outside world has been able to take on the unfolding of that history. The way it all came together told by the artists, recording engineers, and record label itself, as well as the impact they all had, as seen through the eyes of the fans, bands, writers, club owners, promoters, and everyone else influenced one way or another by this music. A FAT Wreck is the collaborative examination of the rise of a DIY scene, produced in the truest fashion of DIY, for a DIY audience. 


Other Ways You Can Help

This project is as much yours as it is ours, just like the history it represents. So even if a financial contribution isn't in the cards for you, please don't feel like you can't be a part of the story. We are always happy to graciously accept the effort of those who are determined, and willing to lend a hand. So send us any rare footage you might be sitting on, upload your FAT Wreck Chords cover songs, put us in touch with some sweet interviewees, or just surprise us! But most importantly, Spread The Word! We can't emphasize this enough. This is a DIY project and DIY relies on grass roots efforts. So thank you for the consideration, contributions, and your trust!
