Hi Everyone! This is Susanna Lo, the writer/director of Manson Girls. First, thanks to all the fans of this project and all your support to date. Manson Girls is the first time the Manson Family story will be told from the perspective of eight of the girls while being written and directed by a woman. Deliberately ending before the infamous Tate/La Bianca murders, the film focuses on the girls’ earlier lives, through to their time as a “family” on Spahn Ranch. The intoxication from free sex, heavy drugs and one of the most tumultuous periods in American history turns what started out as pure magic into the horrific act of murder. With over 300 articles already written about the film, this is clearly a story the world wants to hear. Please, be a part of helping us bring this incredible movie to the theaters. The Manson Girls team started this journey a year and a half ago at our Sundance announcement, with the cast and members of The Doobie Brothers showing up to perform songs from the Manson Girls soundtrack and to meet and entertain our audience. Now we need our audience to help us complete that journey. And see for yourself, the GIFTS we offer as a thank you to all our supporters are AMAZING, and come from the participation of cast members Taryn Manning, Tania Raymonde, Eric Balfour, Chad Faust, Bill Moseley and many more. Even Guy Allison and John McFee of The Doobies, have contributed guitars and VIP, backstage concert tickets for a Doobie concert. And Ron Jeremy is offering to autograph his own personal brand of Ron Jeremy Rum!
What We Need & What You Get
We need to raise an additional $150,000, ideally more, so we can start the next phase of shooting on Manson Girls. With close to 100 cast members and a story that takes place in 1969, the whole Manson Girls team is dedicated to bringing an authentic representation of the time and place of this real period in American history. Our incredible THANK YOU GIFTS include autographed photos of the cast (these pics go for double on Ebay), cd copies of Manson Girls soundtrack with members of The Doobies, The Beach Boys, The Bangles, David Crosby, Beth Hart and the cast participating, and opportunities to come on set and have lunch with the cast. So help us complete this journey and we’ll thank you by bringing you into our family.
We understand that not everyone can afford to help financially. But you can help by getting the word out. Post this onto your Facebook accounts and let others know about this film and the opportunity for them to join in with the Manson Girls family, while getting some really cool gifts.
