any news on this?
So the project is not dead... just delayed.---It's just been a money thing.....working on two documentaries and it has been demanding.
I need funding and I've qualified at least twice but foot dragging made the best laid plans slow to a crawl.
I had intended to get Buk out months and months ago.
I want to try for this spring.
What I do NOT want to do:
Take a bunch of pre-paid orders. It's not fair to anyone, and I don't like when someone else asks it of me.
I promise you I would love nothing better than to get this out there sooner than later!
Waaaahhhh, I need funding! Help me! Help me!---It's just been a money thing.....working on two documentaries and it has been demanding. I need funding and I've qualified at least twice but foot dragging made the best laid plans slow to a crawl.

Fuck this guy. The Bukowski thing is not a documentary, it's a god damn tape of a cable TV show.
Jesus christ, you can get 100 DVDs duplicated (DVR) and packaged for less than $350. You can get a glass master and a stamper made and make 1000 real DVDs (not DVR) for $900. Sell them real cheap (by "real cheap" I mean like $5.99 and a couple bucks for mailing) if you want to move the whole 1000. Make a few thousand bucks and be done with it. Relatively small beans if you price them to sell, but it's a small audience. Or you could price them at $15.99, sell a couple hundred and sit on the rest for 20 years. When no one will be able to play a DVD.
This guy sounds like Linda King waiting for the world's biggest publisher to come and write her a million dollar check for a book that 2,000 people will read. At most.
Everyone wants funding. It's a wonder most of these people can wipe their asses without venture capital interceding somehow. This isn't ART waiting for the NEA, it's COMMERCE. So get capitalistic, fucker, make something happen.
The world has turned into a bunch of frightened worms wiggling around in the freshly turned dirt.
You must have stopped reading very early on (understandable, you were probably angry), because that's exactly what I said not to do.Sitting on a bunch of discs don't pay the bills, and I know a lot of people sitting on boxes and boxes of DVD's that aren't selling.
Why would you come onto a Bukowski forum not knowing who Linda King is and the tricks she's pulled?Well, I don't actually know who Linda King is, but what I won't do is wind up sitting on a bunch of discs that don't sell. Done that already.
Why should he know anything about Linda King? If someone comes across an previously unknown bit of Bukowski video should they just keep their mouths shut about it because they had never heard of Linda King? C'mon...Why would you come onto a Bukowski forum not knowing who Linda King is and the tricks she's pulled?
He's stated in the past that he does not want anyone to pre-order this.He wants you to send him a money order to help out the project and get one of the first off the production line.
