For the past several months, I’ve been working on developing a sequel to SUDS COUNTY, USA with its director, Sheldon Kaplan of Ibhayi Media. For those who don’t know, SUDS COUNTY took a look at the history of craft brewing in San Diego County, going all the way back to before prohibition.
Well, next month we’ll be launching a Kickstarter to fund the production and release of SUDS COUNTY 2: The Boil Over. This will be the biggest Kickstarter campaign that Tostie Productions has been a part of yet, but we’re taking our time to develop partnerships and cross-promotion opportunities with local breweries and other media entities that can help us to hit our funding goal.
Until that Kickstarter launches, you can visit SudsCounty.com to purchase a digital download of SUDS COUNTY, USA. On that first film, I served as an Associate Producer and Post-Production Coordinator. It’s been well received by brewers and home brewers around the world. Cheers!
UPDATE 5/20/2016: Unfortunately, SUDS COUNTY 2 did not meet its funding goal on Kickstarter, so we are not proceeding forward with production on this documentary. Thanks to everyone who made a pledge and helped to spread the word. It’s challenging to finance a film through pre-orders when apparently a large number of people simply want to wait for it to come out on Netflix.
