The crowdfunding campaign for the Life-Size Bronze Statue of our savior Ed Wood is officially open, and they’ve already raised over 3,000 of their goal!
Joe Netherworld has a question for you, “Don’t you think the beloved cult film director of such amazing B Movies like Plan 9 From Outer Space deserves a life size bronze statue?” Well, they do and they are on a mission to make that happen.
“Put Wood in Poughkeepsie” is a crowd sourced fund raiser to finance the creation of a statue of Edward D. Wood Jr. and to place it in his home town of Poughkeepsie N.Y. Ed Wood is a legend and an inspiration to all “Who Dare to Dream” and that quote will be placed on the front of the granite base the statue will be set upon. This is an amazing chance to honor the inspirational life of Ed Wood by giving him a grand homecoming to the city that help create the legend.Lead Sculptor: Patrick Pigott, has over 30 years experience creating sculptures and action figures that have sharpened his abilities to a level achieved by very few and examples of his work can be seen on his website Pigott Studios here is the beginning of the bust sculpture that will be 3-d scanned and output as part of the life size full figure statue!
Joe Netherworld is acting as producer on this project and with his many years of experience in getting any job he takes done well and on budget will ensure this gets done and done right. Being an accomplished sculptor and mold maker helps, too.
