Maria Cabardo’s Indiegogo project seeking crowdfunding for the final stage of her documentary devoted to the late Jeffrey Catherine Jones (seen on the far right in the photo above with Berni Wrightson, Barry Windsor-Smith, and Micahel Wm. Kaluta) is entering its final day. If you had the opportunity to see the premiere of Better Things at SFAL1 last May, you know that Maria has created a wonderful film which is both a fitting celebration of Jeff’s life and an acknowledgement of Jones’ importance to the field of fantastic art as a whole.
If you are unsure of who Jeffrey was or why the Jones legacy is worth preserving in a documentary, here are a few hints:
This last push is just to raise enough funds for her legal fees, music licensing costs, promotional expenses, and all of the other myriad bills that stack up when making an independent movie with more love than money. There are some great incentives Maria has put together for supporters (including an art book with contributions by an amazing cast of contributors in an edition of only around 100) so if you are interested, just click on the link.
