Crowdfund This: The Manos: The Hands of Fate puppet musical on DVD!

Illustration for article titled Crowdfund This: The emManos: The Hands of Fate/em puppet musical on DVD!

You probably haven't seen Manos: The Hands of Felt, a theatrical puppet musical based on one of the most legendarily awful films ever made — it's been performed around the U.S., but not often and not everywhere. But you have a chance to fix this egregious error by crowdfunding an official DVD release!


This isn't a "will this project ever happen?"-type thing; the musical has been around since 2011; it's done, and they're going to film an upcoming production. They just want to be able to put it on DVD so people who haven't been able to see the show live get a chance to watch it, and they just need some capital to make it happen.

They don't need much — only $10,000 — so please consider heading over there and donating a few bucks, or at least reading more info on Manos: The Hands of Felt. The puppet-y Master would approve!

In 2009, I was at a workshop for aspiring screenwriters, and is bound to happen anytime you get a group of us together, we started debating The Worst Film Ever Made. I was a pretty fierce proponent of a certain film which shall remain nameless, and when I wouldn't back down, one of the guys stormed out to his car where he happened to have a MST3K DVD in his car. He sat me down and forced me to watch Manos: The Hands of Fate in its entirety.

I'm not a person who easily admits it when I am wrong but HOLY CRAP WAS I WRONG. His smug smile after it ended was well-deserved.

Definitely chipping in on this. How can I not?
