I wasn't sure where to post this topic, so the new members forum seemed just as good a place as any. I'm a long-time lurker, first-time poster. I know some of you personally, but that's all beside the point.
Basically, I'm a filmmaker and a complete bourbon fanatic. This fall, the idea struck me to create a short subject documentary about the seasonal "Pappy Hunt," as I like to call it. Basically I'm going around interviewing Pappy enthusiasts, shop owners, bartenders, etc to get some colorful footage about Pappy, about the rarity, the fans, the mystique -- and, of course, about bourbon lovers of all stripes and locations!
I've started a Kickstarter fundraising project in an effort to make the documentary that much more interesting. If you want to learn more, check it out below--I'm not peddling donations, but I would love it if anyone who wanted to participate or be interviewed would respond to me here, or PM me. And if you DO want to help fund the project, there are a lot of cool rewards -- getting customized posters, your name listed in the credits, an invitation to a bourbon dinner premiere, etc etc. Let me know what you think:
Thank you everyone again for being part of such an amazing resource and community as this site. As you can probably tell, the interpersonal aspects of being a bourbon fan are truly special to me.
