So we’re launched! This is our 2nd crowdfunding campaign, the last one being a year ago. This time we have a trailer, we have a teaser poster, we have interviews with the author’s family, and we have a great line-up of upcoming interviews.
Oh and we have SHIRTS!
We’re going to push forward with this documentary no matter what, but it would be nice to have the ability to complete it this year. In 1981 the first book, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, was published. I was one-year-old at the time. It was actually a while until they grew in popularity. By the time the third book came out in 1991, they had grown a solid following and were beginning to gain controversy. It is really these years in the 1980s and 1990s that I think a lot of the focus will be on. The author Alvin Schwartz passed away in 1992, so there will never be another Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. That is part of the reason I find this subject so interesting. These books are kind of fixed in a specific time and will never be replicated again.
So paying tribute to the original books by completing this for the 35th anniversary would be great; it’s really the perfect time.
So please take a look at our crowdfunding page. And help us tell this story.
