No matter what language we write it in, the message will hopefully translate. A heartfelt THANK YOU to the 191 contributors who backed our Indiegogo campaign for Goodbye, NOLA. While we didn’t reach our lofty goal, we did really well and everyone’s assistance will make a major dent in our production costs.
Thanks! Now we can concentrate fully on bringing a movie to the big screen worthy of your support.
With just under 14 hours to go before the curtain goes down on Goodbye, NOLA’s fundraising drive, we humbly offer up our last big incentive.
Customized for all you procrastinators out there who “really meant” to be a part of our movie but just never got around to it, we offer this NOLA exclusive. Come in at the Muffuleta Level or above ($75) and we’ll send you a private link to a behind-the-scenes video shot by an anonymous writer/director who may have some involvement in Goodbye, NOLA. This offer (and the rest of the campaign) goes dark at 11:59 pm California time tonight so what are you still doing here? Shouldn’t you be on our Indiegogo page.
And, despite your clever efforts to get us to put up a link here, you won’t trick us into posting a link to the secret perk we offered yesterday. You remember the one that looked suspiciously like this.
Meet our latest associate producer. She’s Shinobu Ikeda and she hails all the way from Japan. Through the modern miracles of Twitter and the Internet, Shinobu discovered that two of her loves (New Orleans and jazz) are key players in our film and she just knew she had to add Goodbye, NOLA to her list of IMDb credits. Thanks, Shinobu and welcome aboard!
Today’s Deal of the Day? We’re calling it “What’s Wonderful About Wednesdays.” It’s not only hump day, it’s also a great day to back the little film that could: Goodbye, NOLA.
For anyone who joins us at the $35 level and above, we’ll send you exclusive behind-the-scene pics from the Wednesday when we shot the climactic scene out on the beautiful Mississippi River. Paddleboat steamers, a beautiful bridge, tears of joy from our actors and more.
It’s a one-day only deal and today’s the day so jump on over to our Indiegogo site while it’s fresh on your mind. Make Wednesday weally wonderful and become part of the indie filmmaking world. The campaign ends Saturday.

I walked into a house full of strangers. There was laughter from the kitchen and witty banter being tossed around a dining room table. I seemed to have walked in on a private party in full swing. I felt alone among many…but not for long! In a short time I felt welcome, and by the end of my time with my Goodbye, NOLA cast mates…we were family!
In bringing to life this touching story about a family coming to terms with one another, while dealing with the life changing event of the passing of their father, we created lifelong friendships. Learning to live life without regrets is a universal struggle. This film allowed us, both cast and crew, to delve into that reality while creating a new circle of friends. I am honored that I was able to work with such talented and giving people, and I am so grateful for the fun, the laughter, and the wonderful memories!
