A Kickstarter campaign to make a documentary about singer-songwriter Guy Clark has surpassed its goal of $75,000 in only three days. Music Industry veteran Tamara Saviano headed up the campaign to make the documentary, which will coincide with Clark’s biography Without Getting Killed or Caught.
The Kickstarter campaign runs until May 20 and they have now set a “stretch-goal” that they hope to reach by that date. The funds will be used for licensing music, photos and footage, insurance, accounting, and more.

As of today, more than 700 people have donated to the campaign.

“I’m thrilled that we have another 29 days to build this campaign,” says Saviano. “But instead of setting a goal for a dollar amount, I’d like our stretch goal to be for more people. So let’s make that our goal. If you’re with me, let’s keep spreading the word about this campaign, but instead of trying to reach the next tier of financial support, let’s grow this 706 people to 5000 people.”

Without Getting Killed or Caught: The Life and Music of Guy Clark traces the life of music pioneer Clark, who, with his wife Susanna, shaped the contemporary folk and American roots music scene. The film follows Guy’s journey as he moves from Texas to Los Angeles to Nashville to become one of the most revered songwriters in American music and an influential folk hero of the 20th century.
