MAKE HISTORY BY COLLECTIVELY APPEARING FOR THE FIRST TIME IN FEATURE FILM "THE BRIDGE"
USING INDIEGOGO TO MAKE IT A REALITY
 
LOS ANGELES, CA - TUESDAY, November 25, 2014 -- The upcoming feature film, "The Bridge," brings together a cast of iconic rock musicians, some of whom will make their film debut:  Joe Elliott of Def Leppard, Al Jourgensen of Ministry, Joey Santiago of the Pixies, Eddie Ojeda of Twisted Sister, Tiny Biuso of Doyle (ex-Misfit)/TSOL, Rick Warwick of Black Star Riders/Thin Lizzy, and Sin Quirin of Ministry.  Director/writer Bobby Field, with producers Denise Bohdan and Jason Gurvitz, announce the launch of their campaign for the film on Indiegogo, the world's largest crowdfunding platform.
 
Fans can contribute to the campaign here:  www.buildthebridgecampaign.com
 
Driven by its powerful original soundtrack, and written by Bobby Field, a musician and actor in his own right, "The Bridge" tells the story of a small town musical prodigy who must free himself from the shadows of his past to find love, hope and friendship that could lead him to the musical expression he never thought possible.
 
Indiegogo is the world's largest crowdfunding platform and Field, Bohdan and Gurvitz are seeking to raise $300,000 USD for the rock and roll feature film.  The campaign will offer fans unique experiences like building their own Fender guitar at Fender Factory with Jourgensen, Quirin or Santiago, "Joe Elliott's Big Fat Package" featuring a Telecaster Guitar and other autographed memorabilia, or having Santiago make you his famous spaghetti in your home.
 
The campaign will also benefit The Fender Music Foundation, and Fender Musical Instruments Corporation's Entertainment Marketing division will be providing key products for the actual filming.  Partnerships with other well-known music corporations will be announced soon.
 
Funding independent films by crowdfunding on Indidgogo is a great alternative to bringing creative projects to life; allowing individual supporters (and music fans) to become part of the project.  The team behind "The Bridge" has taken this concept of democratization even further by partnering with The Fender Music Foundation, who will be a beneficiary of a portion of the  money raised.  Fender Music Foundation is a national music charity that provides instruments to music education programs across the country, including schools.
 
The film's release is anticipated by millions of music lovers worldwide, already showing their support across social media.
