JKruk's "Legend of Sleepy Hollow"
We need your financial support to raise my theatrical and traditional style of storytelling to a new level. Consequently, my wife, filmmaker, Andrea Sadler and I launched, "JKruk's Legend of Sleepy Hollow",
our "Go Fund Me" campaign.
Your contributions lifted us almost half way to our original target of $25,000 and fully raised our hearts with gratitude. With your generous support, we were able to begin editing the film, do a promo photo shoot , pay for graphic art work and ads, buy props, purchase tickets to guarantee a second show at the United Solo Festival, remunerate Jonathan’s musical accompanist, Jim Keyes and hire a publicist for Jonathan’s performances at The United Solo Theatre Festival. We received rave reviews and even brought home an award for Best Satire !
Our current focus is to complete the post-production of the live performance DVD and market to new audiences. It's almost finished! Our original goal was $25,000 but we have lowered it to $17,000 so we can cover the post production costs of the DVD, such as the editor, the music score , the graphic artist and the manufacturing costs of the DVD. With the original goal of $25,000 we hoped to be able to pay our crew who took a leap of faith to get this pumpkin in the air but now, we are focusing on finishing the performance DVD before Christmas.
Our continued intention is to attract the attention of key theater producers, agents and educators, as well as build a NYC fan base. Further, by reaching new audiences in the city and beyond I'll be able to devote more time to storytelling, publish my children's books, create a multi-media Hudson River lore project, a bedtime tale app, more CD recordings, "A Christmas Carol" DVD and a children’s television program.
"Fox & Crow Productions" was born to manifest these creative endeavors.
People crave the authenticity of the story of the iconic headless horseman told live. Every October since 2010, I've performed "Irving's Legend " at the Old Dutch Church in Sleepy Hollow, NY. The forty plus shows sell out every year before the run opens and my audience continues to grow each year.
Please join us in advancing classic tales, traditional storytelling and sustaining my career as a live performing artist. People, especially children, crave well-told tales in this "device" dominated era. Your generous support of "JKruk's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" will help us all live happily ever after.
Please visit my new website devoted to "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" which Andrea created. She will continue to optimize it and work on the Fox and Crow website soon. Andrea also created a new general website for all programs and info.

Full DVD available in 2016 with your support.
Check out our new music video released just for this campaign with the help and love of friends who also love creating. It's a spooky, campy Headless Horseman song performed by your favorite storyteller with ghouls and goblins dancing in the cemetery.
