Kickstarter Campaign

Our Kickstarter campaign has been announced, and it's successful funding will rescue the original "Tom Waits For No One" live action footage (and pencil tests!) from a decaying medium and recover them into a viewable format. The campaign will also fund showcasing the newly recovered film, along with the original artwork and animation cels at a 35th Anniversary Celebration!

The location? None other than the original filming location - the old La Brea Stage in Hollywood. We're rebuilding the original stage and set - we'll project the never-before-seen live action Tom Waits and pencil test footage throughout the gallery, and the restored, framed animation cels will be on display for the first time!

The Kickstarter will begin on Friday, Sept. 19 - and the 35th Anniversary Celebration will kick-off on March 20 & 21, 2015.

And there's a book... a Tom Waits For No One Scrapbook will feature the work of the artists and animators of this nearly forgotten film, also funded by the Kickstarter... Isn't that enough for two remarkable nights?

Well, there's one more thing... the evenings wouldn't be complete without an unmatched and fantastic music experience. To fit the bill, all the way from New Orleans, the amazingly talented Meschiya Lake and Tom McDermott will play both nights. Dig that!

With all this goodness, you'll never want to leave, so catering will be provided by the legendary TOI on Sunset restaurant, and the after party will be hosted at their rockin' thai restaurant, up the street.

More to come in the next few days... in the mean time, dig this from the amazing Tom McDermott and Meschiya:
