Please Support the GoFundMe Fundraiser for CALCULATED EGOS

We recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on GoFundMe to raise production funds for the pilot episode of our upcoming crime drama web series, CALCULATED EGOS, a co-production of Source Life Entertainment. We are aiming to shoot around NYC this summer and need all the support possible to run a smooth and safe production for our cast and crew.

To contribute and see all the reward tiers, visit the GoFundMe campaign link here.

Final Week to Support AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS on Kickstarter

For those who don’t know, this is the very last week of our Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming western project AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS. So far, we have only raised 14% of our fundraising goal since we began last month. We’ve actually done a little better than our previous campaign on Seed & Spark which was greatly affected by the initial lockdowns caused by the global pandemic. But this is still an all or nothing situation where if we don’t meet the minimum goal, then we get no funds to start production next year. We would have to consider other options.

We understand that the $12K goal is a long shot to reach between now and our November 21st deadline. So even if you can’t afford to contribute, you can still help us a long way by sharing the Kickstarter link. All it takes is the right eyes to view our work and be willing to support what we need to get up and running. These rewards are also worthwhile to get should you decide to contribute.

Thank you.


As you all can probably see, this is our last day of fundraising for our trailer project on GoFundMe. I want to thank each of you who donated, shared the link, and expressed a great deal of support for our efforts. Between this campaign as well as private funds, we have enough to cover the production portion of this trailer shoot which will take place on June 2 and June 9 here in NY. But as always, we can use additional funds for editing, music recording, and to pay film festival fees. I’m happy to accept any further payments via my Venmo account @Andre-Joseph-10.

I will continue to update each of you as we progress in our trailer shoot as well as the entire AMERICAN GUNSLINGERS feature film production in the coming months. Be sure to ‘like’ our Facebook page for further updates!

Please Support Team Randy

I was saddened to hear today that our fellow Dishonorable Vendetta cast member Randy Cellan who played the role of “Oleg” is fighting the battle against Chronic Lyme Disease. According to his wife Tricia, he’s not in the best of health and spends his days in a motorized wheelchair. He receives Intravenous Antibiotics that his wife manages at home. They rent a wheelchair accessible van to travel to Connecticut twice weekly for Intravenous Infusions , which must be monitored by his doctor during treatment. The length of time for this treatment is uncertain.

I encourage everyone to please donate and support in any way possible via his GoFundMe page in hopes that he can make a full recovery. Randy was such an all around fun guy to work with on set and one of many actors I had the joy to work with. On behalf of the cast and crew from the film, Randy and his family are in our prayers.
