The Kickstarter fundraising initiative for the documentary about Antonio Corsi by director Jake Gorst did not meet its necessary goal. Determined to make this unique film, Gorst has set up a new Kickstarter campaign with a new (and smaller) financial goal.
Antonio Corsi was the world’s first supermodel; his face and body are familiar from countless works of art. The director now has until April 20 (yes, 8 days) to try again to raise $3,000 for the Corsi documentary through Kickstarter; otherwise the project gets canceled (again).
Director Gorst just completed the beautiful architectural documentary “Modern Tide: Midcentury Architecture on Long Island” featuring houses in the Hamptons. It was recently selected for the 2012 Newport Beach Film Festival, has been shown in New Zealand and will be shown in New York City in June.
Those who donated to the first Kickstarter campaign via credit card were never charged, so all are welcome to please go back and donate here.
I re-donated as well.
