An Honest Liar is a feature-length documentary film about the extraordinary and inspiring life of James Randi. Justin Weinstein and Tyler Measom, two of the creative forces behind the award-winning and critically-acclaimed Being Elmo and Sons of Perdition, have been traveling with Randi all over the world to make this film. They have interviewed some of Randi’s most notable friends and admirers, including Neil deGrasse Tyson, MythBusters’ Adam Savage, and Alice Cooper. Now they are asking for your help to finish An Honest Liar so that they can release it worldwide.
Through this Kickstarter campaign, you can donate to help the filmmakers capture crucial footage, pay for expensive post-production work, and add the additional polish that a major film like An Honest Liar deserves. The campaign has already enjoyed coverage from around the web (find just a couple of notable features here and here), and you can watch just some of the footage embedded below.
There are also premium rewards available at nearly all donation levels, including limited edition wood or leather An Honest Liar coasters; signed movie posters and out-of-print books; a signed portrait of Randi created by Simpsons animator Anna Maltese; and a limited edition photo of Randi with his friend Adam Savage, also signed by both.
