Kevin Spencer is a remarkable magician and human being. He will be on Fox & Friends Monday, March 11th to discuss the making of a documentary Bag of Tricks: Exploring the Magic of Those with Disabilities.
The making of a film is an expensive undertaking and notwithstanding his own financial contributions to the project, he could use a little help. He hopes to engage contributors through his very informative web page on the crowd-source site Indegogo.com.
The documentary follows the process of “self-discovery and self-determination told through the voices, faces, and hands of incredible individuals who struggle with some of life’s most difficult challenges.”
Mr. Spencer serves as an adjunct faculty in the Occupational Therapy Department of the University of Alabama in Birmingham. He provides instruction to therapists, teachers and administrators on methods of integrating magic into their rehabilitation programs. And, oh yeah, he is a world-famous magician with great touring show.
Mr. Spencer needs to raise $50,000.00 by April 1st to succeed in his campaign and will receive all funds pledged prior to midnight, April 1st (Pacific Time).
The crowd-funding campaign aims to accomplish three substantive goals:
- change people’s attitudes and perceptions about individuals with disabilities;
- raise awareness of international disabilities issues and provide opportunities for individuals with different abilities to share in the global society.
- begin a meaningful conversation about the power of the arts in our communities to challenge, transform, inspire, and change lives.
Depending on your contribution level, you will receive a copy of the film in HD format, film credits, a screening pack or even a personal appearance by Mr. Spencer at your own premiere event.
