A documentary about a grandson’s journey through the lore and legends of jazz history to find his grandfather, Charles Mingus.

 Mingus on Mingus is a documentary of a grandson discovering the truths behind the legend of the grandfather he never knew. Known to the world as a composer who left one of the largest musical legacies of the 20th century, the film highlights the voices of the people he touched and the places he lived.   While following the search for a grandfather and a true jazz legend, we rediscover both, the man and the artist: Charles Mingus.

 

 Mingus on Mingus Project   need your help

This is a project focused on people who struggled to create and control their work independently. Following our own path to produce a film by traditional funding methods has been challenging. Until now our project has been fully self-funded and its financial independence will allow us to create a documentary faithful to the spirit of jazz.  

Our goal of $45,000 will allow us to continue into the next stage of filming, planned for winter 2011 and spring 2012.

Funds received will be applied to conducting additional interviews in the United States, Mexico and Europe, equipment rental, on-location camera operators, editing fees, and archival research and usage fees.    

If we don't reach our goal, no amount is collected. It's all or nothing, IF WE DO NOT MEET OUR TOTAL GOAL BY DEC 18th THE PROJECT WILL NOT BE FUNDED! Pledges are only billed when the goal is met and the campaign has ended.
Help us spread the word!
