Please join SABR member Peter Gorton for a happy hour from 5:00-7:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 22 at the Aster Cafe, 125 SE Main St, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55414, as we gather to celebrate the "39 Seconds" documentary film production.
It will be a time to get Project Updates, meet some of the cast and crew, support the Kickstarter, and raise a glass!
John Donaldson is the next great Negro Leagues player who until now has been passed over by history. We have 39 seconds of footage to work from, we are racing after interviews from the few remaining people that have a connection to this period, we are working with and asking so much from great young actors to bring to life this amazing story... time is of the essence. The crucial funds raised by this Kickstarter will go directly to production costs. We have begun production and need financing to help pay our actors, crew, travel costs as we continue to film and travel around the US gathering these essential interviews and create this film. We need your help to partner with us in this effort. If you love Baseball, American history or a good “grass-roots” effort please help us to bring John Donaldson to the big screen so everyone will know this man, and all the amazing accomplishments that have been brushed aside and ignored for to long.
