Manny P. here…

   The FORGOTTEN HOLLYWOOD Pilot Documentary (Development) funding campaign online on INDIEGOGO will officially conclude on May 4th. The brochure campaign will continue until May 18th at Westminster Lanes with a day of bowling for cash and prizes. As for now, in our 17th week, we’ve made 69% of our goal. It’s not too late to make a contribution:




~ LISA G. ($100) – Prefering to maintain a modicum of anonymity, Lisa has been my friend for almost 25 years. In addition to making a significant cash statement, she has also secured a neat prize for our Westminster Lanes fundraiser on May 18th: a Nikon Coolpix S4200, valued at $180. Lisa will allow me to publicly thank her in the end credits of our Forgotten Hollywood Pilot, with the rest of the contributors. I have already privately offered my heartfelt thanks.

MrBs_logo_copy~ CHRIS JOHNSON ($50) – Chris is a massive sports enthusiast who’s a loyal patron at Mr. B’s in Los Alamitos. He’s also part of the enthusiastic audience that enjoys karaoke entertainment each weekend. During the day, Chris is a longtime employee of Southern California Edison.

ruben jay~ RUBEN “JAY” PENA ($40) – Ruben is energetic about carving a successful broadcasting career. A graduate of the Academy of Radio and Television Broadcasting in Huntington Beach. he freelances as  a media consultant. Ruben also voiced interest in participating in any capacity as part of our Forgotten Hollywood production team. I’m seriously considering taking him up on his offer, since he’s a talented individual with a very mature outlook about what we are trying to accomplish. Here’s a link to his engaging website:


~ NANCY ELLIS ($25) – Nancy is a longtime radio broadcaster, whose credits include KSRF in Santa Monica. She keeps quite busy by working as a counselor at the Academy of Radio and Television Broadcasting, and for a supermarket chain. Like Lisa and Chris, I’ve known Nancy for a good number of years.

   During this 2013 campaign, I’m asking friends, family, and supporters to help us achieve our 120+ day (19-week) goal of $500089 inidividual and business contributors want to support quality family-friendly television programs, intelligently presented.

   YOU can contribute ANY AMOUNT. This step ensures Development, and we’ll be able to:

  1. Hire a research archivist to track down footage and photos; and secure licensing
  2. Hire a consultant / casting director to book actors and behind-the-scenes folks from Hollywood’s Golden Age; plus cinematic historians for original interviews
  3. Set up a production shoot to tape these candid moments

Again… here’s the INDIEGOGO link for the details (and you’re chance to contribute):


   All participants will warmly receive screen thanks at the conclusion of the Documentary.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
