Regarding my earlier post regarding the documentary film-in-progress on the subject of the real person who wrote under the pseudonym of “Shakespeare” … I just received this happy news:
“Shakespeare” and Edward de Vere
As a postscript to the last email Bulletin, I would like to extend a note of thanks to the 84 donors (and counting!) to the “Shakespeare” By Another Name-inspired documentary (Shakespeare in Venice: Nothing Is Truer Than Truth). As of 12:20 p.m. eastern (U.S.) time today, the pledge drive reached its $12,000 goal — which means the project is now fully funded!
Please stay tuned. Next year this bulletin will bring you more updates as the filmmaker, Cheryl Eagan-Donovan, conducts her on-location filming and edits her four-years-worth of footage into a feature-length documentary ready for a distributor to take to the world at large.
To all who helped out on this pledge drive, in every way, Grazie mille!
In other news, I have also recently received over the transom a superb tip, which I’m now in the midst of investigating. Long and short: Please also stay tuned to the Shakespeare By Another Name blog (http://shakespearebyanothername.blogspot.com) where later this week your correspondent will be sharing some powerful new contemporary evidence of Edward de Vere’s likely association with — and authorship of — the “Shakespeare” canon.
I have no idea how long it will take for Ms. Eagan-Donovan to complete her film and find a distributor, but I’ll be among the first in line when it’s finally released!
