Brooklyn filmmaker Alex Ross Perry has made four feature films which have been shown at nearly 50 film festivals. He's worked with actors you've heard of. He's even won an award for his work, and been nominated for several others.

But it's important to him that you know he's far from a Hollywood millionaire, especially since he wants your money to help save his pet's life. After learning that his beloved cat, Fluffy, had been diagnosed with cancer, Perry decided to turn to crowdfunding to help pay for the feline's fight to live.
"I don't think anyone with any inside-baseball knowledge of independent film would think just because I've had films at Sundance, that means I have any money," says Perry, whose indie movies Listen Up Philip and Queen of Earth have been well-received by critics. "The amount of money we are raising for Fluffy, $11,000, is more than I made, total, for Listen Up Philip. Which I made for two years. And it was a full-time job."More »
