The Comic Book Collector: A Journey of Letting Go is an award-winning documentary short film and comic book project by a board-certified American psychiatrist, Dr. Paul Rashid. He has recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for his short documentary film, as well as the comic book adaptation of the film. Dr. Paul is welcoming generous community support for this project and is inviting comic book lovers and collectors from around the world to participate in this campaign.
“This story is about me, a comic book collector for over 30 years. I made the difficult decision to giveaway my comics to a younger generation of comic fans.” Paul Rashid said, while introducing this project to the Kickstarter community. “Although I had second thoughts about the giveaway, I was determined and ultimately I was able to donate approximately 1,000 comic books from my personal collection to over 25 children in my hometown community in West Virginia.” He added, “This 30-minute short film documents my journey of letting go of my comic books while teaching many inspiring life lessons.” The film includes an interview from psychiatrist Dr. Donald Fidler, who discusses the role that superheroes play in our collective lives. The film also includes local Rabbi Urecki who shares his personal comic book collecting journey.
The Kickstarter Campaign is located on the web at:
www.kickstarter.com/projects/comicbookcollector/the-comic-book-collector-documentary-film-and-comic-book and all funds raised through this Kickstarter campaign will play a major role in the production of this short film. The goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to raise a sum of only $2,000 (USD), and Dr. Paul is offering a wide range of rewards for the backers. More details are available on the Kickstarter campaign page of the project.
