I had no access to the internet last weekend as I was immersed in a shoot. Before going to the location on Sunday morning I picked up Mr. Dragon’s copy of the NY Times and perused the editorial page while he was showering. I realized I hadn’t held a hard copy of the paper in…I honestly couldn’t remember. Just had time to get through MoDo before Ray was toweled-off and ready to go. The next day I picked up a copy to read on the train as I headed home. As I went through it, section by section, I found it to be a revelation and somewhat comforting to know that it remains the best newspaper in the United States. Which makes this upcoming movie that much more important. Will it survive?
Wakefield Poole’s acclaimed autobiography, Dirty Poole, has been re-issued in a new edition with a new afterward and over 20 photos. Dirty Poole Donors at the Patron level and above will receive an autographed copy shortly. Everyone else, please see the Web site for ordering information.

Welcome to the first official Dirty Poole Donors and Friends newsletter. We’re in the grueling and exciting post-production period on the documentary.
Sincere thanks to every one of you who has helped to bring us this far.
We’ve recently launched a fundraising campaign on the popular site IndieGoGo. The more people who visit and donate through IndieGoGo, the higher profile the project has and the more exposure to other potential donors.
Help us spread the word, especially to friends and potential donors with an interest in dance and Broadway and television history, on which the campaign focuses. Find out more below.
This campaign will help us complete Dirty Poole in 2011, which is the 40th anniversary of the New York opening of Wakefield’s revolutionary film Boys in the Sand.
IndieGoGo Campaign Starts
Thanks to the fiscal sponsorship of the San Francisco Film Society, all donations to Dirty Poole are 100% tax deductible.
The easiest way to make a donation is through our new IndieGoGo campaign. IndieGoGo is one of the premier ways that independent artists generate money to make their films. Interested donors visit IndieGoGo by the thousands to find the most intriguing projects.
We’ve launched our first IndieGoGo campaign for Dirty Poole to raise $5000 minimum so we can license clips and photos that cover Wakefield Poole’s amazing theatrical career.
The more people who visit the campaign, the higher our profile on IndieGoGo goes and the more people will hear about it.
To entice you to visit, director Jim Tushinski has created a special video introduction in which he explains about clip licensing and shows you some of the amazing clips we want to use.

I’m back from the latest Joe Gage Sex Files shoot. This one’s called Divorced Men’s Support Group and for the moment I can say no more. (Except to note that there was a certain amount of suit-and-tie hotness running rampant, and I may have come upon–as in “discovered”– a new star.)
