What We Need & What You Get

$25,000 is the minimum we need to finish filming the interviews and license a bit of footage, a bit of music and a bit of photography that will help us start putting the documentary together.

We're still shooting the interviews at the moment. We recently did a few in New York (Walter Lure, Alan Vega, Donna Destri, Sam Yaffa, Leee Black Childers, Alison Gordy, Marcia Resnick, Luigi Scorcia, Jill Wisoff, etc) and in LA (Wayne Kramer, Barry Jones) and San Diego (Gail Higgins). In London we already interviewed the likes of Peter Perrett, JC Carroll, Tony James, Nina Antonia, Neal X, John Perry, Chris Musto, Alan Hauser, etc.

Lotten Sunna, Stevie Klasson and Michael Thimren were just interviewed in Stockholm and we still have to visit Henri Paul and Marc Zermati in Paris, The Mighty Marty Thau in Virginia and a final stop in New Orleans where we will follow JT's last steps.

As we all know, more money than those $25,000 will be required to finalize the film BUT once it starts looking good it will be a lot easier to get potential executive producers interested in order to finalize it and put it out.

In return for your contributions, we're offering a range of perks - your name on the end credits and on the website, a cool T-shirt, tickets to the premiere in New York City, drinks with the director and VIP's and even an Associate Producer and Executive Producer credit!

If we reach our target, your contribution will have helped ensure this film is made. If we surpass our target we may be able to include more Johnny Thunders songs in the soundtrack!
