Jayhawkers

No elaborate introduction needed for today’s post…

One of my first mentors, in terms of being a black filmmaker from Kansas with an independent streak, was Kevin Wilmott.  He was coming into KU as a professor as I was on my way out as a graduate, but it will come as no surprise to you I’m a fan of his films, from Ninth Street to the politically charged C.S.A.

Anyhoo, the very short grapevine between us has brought to my attention that he’s using Kickstarter to put the financing together for his latest project, Jayhawkers.  That title alone and the picture I’ve posted should give you a general idea of what it’s about, but I’ve linked their Kickstarter page below.  As far as feature films go, they’re not looking for that much so I encourage anyone who can help out to do so.
