A message from the director
Making a movie sure is expensive. The cost of shooting an interview averages $1,000 each. Then there are fees for archival footage, collecting photographs, the dollar-to-euro conversion rate, office space, gear, and tape stock.
Then there are the unforeseen fees. On one interview, I have to hire the interviewees private make-up artist and hair stylist. That's going to be about $1,000 itself! Ouch!
So far the film has been financed by me personally and by donations from private contributors. While I am here in Paris, I want to get as much material as I can. To further this end, we are doing an all out fundraising drive.
The goal is to raise $30,000 by the end of September. This will cover the cost of all the planned interviews, collection of archival footage and the start of post-production editing. While we are applying for grants and seeking production partners the quickest and most successful path has been through private, tax deductible contributions.
This page has all the information you need to make a contribution to the film either by check, money order, credit card or Pay Pal.

It has been so rewarding meeting all these people who brought us 60s French pop - from the fans to the big stars. I can't wait to bring you the finished film!
A plus tard!
