One of my favorite dudes who ever lived in Olympia, but now doesn't live in Olympia, is former Desolation Wilderness and Electric Sunset (K Records) frontman, Nick Zwart. Nick put full-time music on the backburner and moved to L.A. a while back to pursue his film career. He now lives in one of the coolest houses I've ever had the pleasure to be in, on the steepest street I've ever had the displeasure to drive on.
He recently launched a Kickstarter to fund his first major short film, King Leaves the Kingdom. It seems pretty strange, (and ambitious for $11K), and I'm excited to see what comes out of it. Your patronage and generosity could be rewarded with film stardom as an extra in the "pool party" scene, or a producer credit. You will no longer be a liar when you are trying to impress people at the bar! "No, really, I AM a producer! I swear! Check IMDB!"
