"Lucky Stiff" indie film Traina & Son Productions.


This is a campaign to raise funds for the anxiously awaited sequel to the clever, crazy 1940s film noir spoof "The Dragon's Eye" starring boy wonder Charlie Traina.

Young Traina will be joined by a cast of wonderful actors and actresses including Michael McGrath, Simon Jones, Lee Wilkof, Charlotte Booker, Joe Traina (in a mericfully small role) and special guest star Fyvush Finkel.

We are endeavoring to raise $10,000.00 of which will be dedicated to production, salaries, location rental and sundry expenses.

"The Dragon's Eye" has been viewed by over 500 people on YouTube and we anticpate that "Lucky Stiff' should enjoy an audience double that.

Small donations of $10.00 and $20.00 are welcome and everyone will receive a copy of the Joe Traina CD "Only In New York."

Other gifts will include complimentary tickets to select Broadway shows, invitation for two to a private screening (baked goods by Melissa Traina) of "Lucky Stiff" and other nice things we will come up with that you'll enjoy.

Please help to make our dream a reality.  The world needs comedy in a satiric, playful vein and we want very much to bring it to you.

Thank you for your consideration.
