A Message From Valerie Landsburg


Valerie Landsburg has a message about her KickStarter campaign to raise funds for "Offer and Compromise"

 "In 37 years of acting, writing, directing and developing projects, including Offer & Compromise, this Kickstarter campaign is the hardest thing I have ever done. 

 Shooting 18 hour days, on my feet in terrible weather with animals, children and everything going wrong - is easier than... Asking for money. 

 Asking you for money to support my efforts as a director has been very hard for me. If I had to raise money for you, that would be easy. You deserve it, you are great, I believe in you. 

Needless to say, through this journey I have been given a gift, the opportunity to look very deep inside myself and learn to ask for help. The outpouring of people who have pledged their money or their support has been incredible. What has kept me going is sitting quietly, late at night, sending thank you messages for our pledges and answering emails of support.

Unfortunately, we got kicked in our metaphorical nuts with the Kickstarter hacking news. The good news is that the money is administered through Amazon so no financial information was compromised. And Kickstarter is all or nothing, so no one's credit card is charged unless we reach our goal.

Again, I want to acknowledge and say how thankful I am to the community of people from all around the world that have helped us with this project. We are doing everything we can to reach our goal and when we do, we know we will make a wonderful movie. 

Gratefully, 

Valerie"

To support Valerie with the campaign go to Kickstarter to pledge and share.

Valerie Landsburg and Lee Curreri Could We Be Magic Like You 2014


Valerie Landsburg and Lee Curreri had a recent reunion in LA. 

Valerie said:  "While I've been in LA its been so wonderful to hang out with Lee, we have the kind of friendship that seems to defy time apart, we pick up right where we left off."

While together they recorded with wonderful version of "Could We Be Magic Like You".  The video is below.



Also they are promoting Valerie's Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for her movie "Offer and Compromise".

Valerie is grateful to anyone who takes the time to pledge and support her project, but she has told me it means a lot to her when it's her Fame fans who pledge. 


Valerie has given us so much as Doris on Fame. How many of us have said at some point in the past "I wish I had a friend like Doris?" 

Well we do, we have Valerie and after giving us so much she's asking for our help. Just one dollar shows we care and adds your name to the list of supporters. 

So Pledge and Share as much as you can.
