The start of filming is approaching rapidly (in about 3 days!!!!)! That means it’s pre-production crunch time. The crunchiest of the crunchy! Crunchy hippie time. The fabulous Fat crew is in full on crunch mode — finishing up some final important pieces like wardrobe and set decor.
As you can tell from the cast and amazing soundtrack bands, we are working hard to infuse the film with as much local Boston-area flavor as possible.
One of the ways we’re doing this is by loading up the main character Ken‘s bedroom set with local band posters and outfitting the actors in band t-shirts.
We’ve collected some already (including the sweet ‘FNX shirt pictured above – acquired the night Parlour Bells rocked the We Want the Airwaves show at the Paradise) but the more shirts and posters we get, the more bands and local websites or businesses we can feature on-screen. Ryan Spaulding and Richard Bouchard, Kings of recognizable Boston band-related and band-website t-shirts know what I’m talking about. Plus, you’ll be ensuring the film won’t receive an automatic NC-17 MPAA rating due to excessive nudity.
If you can offer a t-shirt or poster or two, your generosity will be rewarded – not only with free advertising – hopefully on the big screen, but I can guarantee you a shout out on this here lil ol blog (or on the FB, Twitter, by having Phinney record the greeting on your home answering machine, and so on and so forth – whathaveyou) as well.
We’re SO HUMBLY GRATEFUL for the support we’ve already received from our friends in and around the city of Boston. Our Kickstarter just ended and thanks to the generosity of so many friends of the film (and the filmmakers themselves), we reached our goal! So so so many thanks to all who donated!
If you know of anyone with band / record label / music industry wares who can help with this effort, please share!
We can use t-shirts of any size as we have a cast of all shapes and sizes but if you want your goods to be sported by the lead actor, XXL will be the way to go. Posters would rock, too!

Someone from the Fat crew can meet up with you wherever’s convenient to pick up your wares, or we’ll give you Phinney’s address – but be careful, he’s likely to answer the door nude and demand a hug. Yea, we really need those XXL t-shirts, guys…
