Help us hit the next level: a 'Con of Wrath' fundraiser SPECIAL

STARLOG founder/ CON OF WRATH emcee Kerry O'Quinn
Well, 2012 is in full force now, and things are gearing up for the next shoots on The Con of Wrath, our "riches to rags to riches" documentary that keeps getting more human and more in-ter-est-ing as we go along.  (If "what the hell's 'The Con of Wrath'?" comes to your mind, check out the post ... or the page [with sneak peek video].)

Last weekend was a great shoot in L.A. with the legendary Kerry O'Quinn (right), creator of Starlog, Fangoria, Cinemagic, et al magazines—and the actual stage emcee for the Ultimate Fantasy (aka "Con of Wrath"—plus fan/pro VIPs Kett Kettering and Eric Stillwell, who were merely simple attendees then ... with really good memories now.

Good time to shake things up, no? So to plan for more shoots in Houston and back East ... here's the deal:
Anyone who makes a donation between now and 11:59 p.m. PDT on Monday, Feb. 27, will get the thank-you swag from the NEXT LEVEL UP, as you can see on the donor page at That's for every level from $10 through $500 ($1000 and $2500 levels are not included for this "doubling"deal.) 
And, if you have already made a donation, add on to your prior amount to hit the next level, and get the same deal.
Remember, ANY donor at any time gets screen credit, in addition to the "goodie bag" at each of the eight levels posted.

Those who know me know I am NOT a fan of raising money—but this is the nature of the biz, so I thank you in advance for being so interested in preserving this notably noble, wacky and still-iunanswered piece of Trek lore—and human nature. We promise to do you proud: What's "in the can" already is great stuff, and there's more to come. We're only about a quarter way through just the shoot.

FYI: I opted not to go the Kickstarter or Indiegogo route, for those familiar with such things, due to both my name and the brand of Star Trek; instead, we use the PayPal Donations system for security and confidence of donors.  You can read all my thoughts on the why and how at either the original blog post or the movie page now.
