Mike Lawrence of Philly Philms has undertaken an impressive project over the last two years, creating a documentary that captures who Phish fans are. His film focuses squarely on the fans, not the band, a first of its kind film to be produced. Now, with Fall Tour upon us, Lawrence has started a Kickstarter campaign over the next 46 Days to fund the production and distribution of “We’ve Got it Simple”.
As Lawrence says in the Kickstarter description: “The film and its unique structure will allow us to tell the true story of us, the fans, and the unique and artistic sub-culture world that we have created. Beginning in the early years in Vermont and continuing through the 30th anniversary year, “We’ve Got It Simple” will allow us to celebrate our community and tell our story from the inside, while exposing the most unique and eclectic fan-base in music to those who may not be as familiar.”
Among the rewards for backing this project – downloads and DVDs of the film – there will be a series of Phanart rewards, pins and posters created by a variety of artists, which will benefit the backer as well as the artist for those who support “We’ve Got it Simple” at certain reward levels. These will be revealed over the course of the 46 Day long campaign, with each reward getting better and better, leading up to the Limited Edition movie poster designed by Jim Pollock.
You can back this project here and make sure to tell your friends and share with Phish fans. This is a one of a kind film and the biggest Phish film outside of Bittersweet Motel.
