Blue Like Jazz Shooting in Portland

Over four years ago, Steve Taylor and Ben Pearson sat down and wrote “Blue Like Jazz” a feature based on Donald Miller’s New York Times bestselling memoir by the same name.

We caught up with the crew on the set yesterday (they are shooting one more week in the Portland metro area).  They were excited to be seeing their project finally come to life and the whole funding route really is a great story in and of itself.  After Don Miller announced the project was dead due to lack of funding, a Kickstarter campaign began and after a while they were right there at the top of the leader-board.  They raised over $345,992 and Steve let us know he was some 300 deep into his personal thank you calls!

Steve Taylor wrote and is directing the project, and  Oregonian and SOFAT founder and Executive Director, Gary Kout, is producing.  Marshall Allman (“True Blood”) is starring.
