We don't usually get into real identities here or what we do for a living. For me, now's a good time to break that wall. My name is Bobby Kruger, and I'm an actor.
Let me give you some background on me. I went to the Newhouse School at Syracuse University and studied broadcast journalism with the intention of going into the hockey media. I covered the Syracuse Crunch in 2004-2005 during the lockout, and worked the entire hockey event coverage at the 2006 Winter Olympics - even doing real-time stats for Pierre McGuire and being stationed right behind Doc and JD. Shortly after that, I decided I wanted to explore my love for drama and story telling. I graduated college and went right into a full time 2 year drama program. Since graduation I've been involved in a lot of different projects from musical theater to film. You can see my first reel here: www.bobbykruger.com
After meeting with a short film distributor and going over some career paths, I've decided the next step in my career is to produce my own film - with full intention of working the festival circuit. So I've partnered with a fellow writer/director and we are producing the follow up to his festival featured film - This Ruthless Efficiency. This Ruthless Efficiency
Our next project is TRUE WORK, a short drama about a group of people addicted to a mysterious drug. However, we need a little bit of financing so we can begin filming at our rented location on Long Beach Island. Filming is scheduled to go ahead on September 26 - with a cast and crew of about 20.
To finance the film - my partner and I are using Amazon's KICKSTARTER. If you have a second and want to read below, I'll show you how can you lend a hand.
All donations are super easy and come through Amazon.com - BUT here's the kicker: It's all or nothing. If we meet our goal, then we get all of the donations. BUT!...if we fail to meet our goal, we get zero and you won't get charged. (So let's not let that happen!) The all of nothing concept is a great incentive for us to keep on the ball.
This is the link for the Kickstarter:
Kickstart: True Work
All of the information about the film is on the page - including a director's video. We are hoping to raise $3,400 to get this picture made. Any donation amount would help from $1 to $100 to...well, $3,400. Anything would help - and we even have some modest incentives on the right side of the page. In just 36 hours We have raised roughly 15% - so things are moving, but I have to keep pushing!
Thank you so much for reading this post. I know it's tough times out there, but any help would be so greatly appreciated by our entire cast and crew. If you have any questions or concerns about anything - please do not hesitate to ask me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org
