21 Thrift Stores in 5 Cities

16 Dec

I’ve been scouring western Oregon to costume PROF TOM FOOLERY SAVES THE PLANET (#tomfoolery) and hit nearly 2 dozen thrift stores.

Right now the most difficult costume pieces to find are long jackets and hats.

The budget for costumes is also much higher than anticipated – already over $500.

Contributions through PayPal to paul@paulbrightfilms.com are greatly appreciated to defray these higher costume costs.

Thanks!

Trigger Warning! – Paul’s Tub Talk – December 6

4 Dec

Warning: The video in this post may show a man in a bathtub.

Students are complaining about being shown troubling images or discussing upsetting topics as part of the course curriculum in universities and colleges around the country. In some instances the schools are complying with these requests by warning classes that they may be exposed to images of Native American artifacts, spiders, classic art, or even be told that someone famous was gay.

Coddling students (and their vocal parents) is resulting in some instructors self-censoring subject matter, which results in shielding young minds from learning the realities of the world.

 

Many Worthwhile Causes to Support

29 Nov

This Tuesday is a national day of donating to social causes that we value, to people who do good things in the world that we can’t personally do, and to people who need a boost.

Many of us contribute to the world as much as we can through the year, not only on a designated day.

My mentor, Steve Reinisch, recommended an inspiring book a few years ago, The Soul of Money written by Lynne Twist.  One of the most powerful messages I heard from the book is that each of us has resources to share with each other regardless of our economic situation.

In my own life I recognize that by volunteering my skills to create short films and public service announcements I can offer more to my community than spending an afternoon stuffing envelopes for a charity or slipping $20 in an offering plate.

The contributions you make to my feature films make it possible for me to have the equipment and time to create these social media videos for others. Your support for me resulted in

And of course there are all those Tub Talks, which in my own way call attention to some of life’s ironies that I hope lightens your day.

This time of year is crucial for gathering the resources to make my next feature film PROF. TOM FOOLERY SAVES THE PLANET. When you help me make this film you reap both the reward of receiving a fun and happy movie and enabling me to do good work for the community throughout the year.

It’s a good feeling to know exactly what your money is doing.

Please contribute using your bankcard through PayPal to Paul@PaulBrightFilms.com

Thank you.

PS. Instead of running a campaign on IndieGoGo I’m using PayPal so more of your contribution makes it to the film. IndieGoGo raised their commission to 10% and I don’t feel they deserve the money you intend for the film.
