Looking Closer: The Opening Credits

Your Name Here.

If this blog were a feature film, you’d be the audience. I’d be the multi-tasking, sleep-deprived, living-in-his-van, independent filmmaker with coffee breath, I suppose.

But a decent production needs so much more than you and me.

Looking Closer is a blog I produce in my “spare time.” (I work full-time elsewhere, and I’m earning an MFA in Creative Writing on the side.) I need help to make it happen. And some of you are providing extraordinary support through donations to the cause.

You deserve credit.

Below, you’ll find The Opening Credits — my expression of gratitude for those who have helped cover the costs of keeping the blog alive. Most contributors are credited here as crew members. Those who contribute enough to cover a year’s worth of Looking Closer costs, approximately, are credited as cast members, producers, or co-directors.

Want to add your name to the list?

Want to pour a little fuel into the tank so it keeps moving?
