Albert Pyun's detractors have said "Who keeps hiring this guy? He ruins movies" 

Nobody hires Albert Pyun  He creates his movies from first thought to delivery. He raises his own financing but never manages to raise enough to make the movie he envisions.  One film critic said it best:  "Albert Pyun's inimitable style is Shoot really fast before you run out of money".  

But those of us who love his movies love them just as much for the punishment he took to get them to us. His single interest since he was 10 years old was to make movies no matter what he must endure. 

Still he always hoped for a decent budget and to be able to screen his films in a decent venue to a full capacity audience. 

That's what this campaign is about. Now that Albert has MS and cannot keep working, his friends and fans want to fulfill Albert's dream to screen a film he's proud of to a full house of all the artists he's worked with over the years, and for his  fans and friends. 

Road to Hell is the only one of Albert's films to receive so many awards and positive reviews. It is his 50th movie and fitting climax to his 40 year career.

We want to give the screening event the best promotional effort that any of Albert's films have ever received. To achieve both the marketing, star guest list and to secure this state of the art venue, we need to reach out to Albert's fans, the fans of his many movies (and especially those who loathe his movies), to be able to stage an event worthy of this kind, hardworking and generous filmmaker who's vision and artistry, while certainly weird at times, were always fueled by his enthusiasm for the motion picture experience within a dark auditorium.

PLEASE MAKE YOUR PAYPAL DONATIONS  'PERSONAL' NOT PURCHASE. OTHERWISE I HAVE PAYPAL FEES AND INDIEGOGO FEES=12%. 

IF WE DON'T MAKE OUR GOAL, we'll just shrink the theater, cut the ads and let go of bringing stars from outside the country. We'll still have the screening, Albert will be thrilled and we'll all make new memories.
