Crowdfund This: Kadeem Hardison’s “WHERE BROOKLYN AT?” Documentary

Crowdfund This: Kadeem Hardison’s “WHERE BROOKLYN AT?” Documentary

There are
a bevy of documentary projects in the making, and all of them need help with funding, but with the legacy and
unfortunate questionable cultural future of Brooklyn, New York City’s most
creative borough, not many are as timely or convincing.  And with the Executive Producer of it being no other than
Brooklyn and Black cultural icon Kadeem Hardison – ‘Dwayne Wayne’ of the
trailblazing 1980’s/90’s sitcom “A Different World” and currently the co-star
of the ever-popular kids show “K.C. Undercover” alongside young Disney Channel
star Zendaya Coleman – highlighting this is a no-brainer. 

(WBK@) smartly “promises to be a definitive examination of
the cultural Brooklyn connection to global art” by being an official chronicle
of Brooklyn’s legacy of artists and “their journey to leave their indelible
mark on planet earth.”   With the added goal of restoring
cultural accuracy to the current generation who are, “feeding only on the
questionable intentions of reality TV, certain detrimental social media
activity and empty film content,” the doc has already filmed interviews and exclusive
concert footage with Brooklyn hip-hop music pioneers like Big Daddy Kane, DJ
Red Alert, MC Lyte, Pete Rock, Buckshot (From Black Moon), Joell Ortiz, and DJ
Clark Kent to name only a few.

(By the way, the
title comes from Notorious B.I.G./Biggie Small’s legendary freestyle rhyme at
the 1993 Budweiser Superfest concert in NYC along with Tupac Shakur. If you are
unaware, which is okay, the need for this documentary is even more necessary.)

But along with
his director One-Twenty, Hardison and the WBK@ crew need your financial help
via Kickstarter to continue to make this doc happen. More specifically, they
need funding to properly interview mainstream Brooklyn notables like Chris Rock, Rosie Perez, Woody Allen, Barbara Streisand, Jay Z, Mike
Tyson, Eddie Murphy, Lou Ferrigno, and Steve Buscemi.

Once the
documentary is completed, the intention is to eventually make it into a series,
continuing the narrative on a myriad of Brooklyn artists. 

So check out the
page, their video talking about the doc, and the cool perks that include limited
edition high end t-shirts, DVD’s, hats, stickers, exclusive access to the
movie, meet and greets and more rewards that allow you to discover more about “WHERE BROOKLYN AT?”
