Al Jourgensen (MINISTRY), Joe Elliott (Def Leppard), Joey Santiago (Pixies), and Eddie Ojeda (Twisted Sister) have announced their involvement in the feature film The Bridge and have launched an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign for it, according to Variety Magazine. The project also includes Tiny Biuso of TSOL, Ricky Warwick of Black Star Riders/Thin Lizzy and Sin Quirin of MINISTRY.
The $300,000 crowdfunding campaign, which also benefits the Fender Music Foundation in addition to funding the film, will offer fans experiences like building their own guitar at the Fender Factory with Jourgensen, Quirin, or Santiago, an Elliott Telecaster, and Santiago making a spaghetti dinner at a fan’s home.
“JOIN US,” says Quirin. “Pick a cool incentive!! Help us put an instrument in the hands of someone who can’t afford one and help make this movie happen.”
The Bridge is a rock & roll feature film about the rise of small town music prodigy Luke Weaver, who faces the decision to choose life or continue down his steadfast path to self-destruction. While this marks the feature film debut for most of the musicians, Jourgensen has previously appeared in films Wicked Lake as The Art Teacher and Steven Spielberg’s A.I.: Artificial Intelligence as the Flesh Fair Band Member, which featured the MINISTRY live lineup at the time.
