Dear friends and internet community,
As you may or may not know I recently completed a cinematic test of endurance by watching Dana Carvey’s infamous 2002 film The Master of Disguise for 21 consecutive days.
My initial motivation for this marathon was to win a bet with my girlfriend. She said I couldn’t possibly get through three weeks of one of the worst reviewed movies in cinematic history. Despite her doubts I knew that I was crazy enough to relish in this sort of thing. Not only did I end up winning the bet, but I also ended up writing a rather in-depth blog that documented my experience throughout this endeavor, provided musings and criticism of the film, and contained writings that used the movie as a source of inspiration for philosophical meandering and creative purposes. I used this Sisyphus like task as an opportunity for self-development and mastery of a subject. Simply put— I became The Master of The Master of Disguise.
If you care to relive this comical experience an archive of the blog entries can be found at (http://themasterofthemasterofdisguise.tumblr.com/archive)
This project has since taken on a life of its own and I am now looking to take things WAY further. I recently received approval to begin fundraising through Kickstarter to re-create the Master of Disguise into a new “Master’s Cut.” My goal is to fulfill the promise of the original film and improve the areas where it fell short. I have written about these proposed edits in depth on The Master of The Master of Disguise blog which I implore you to read more about. I am sure you will be entertained.

As crazy as it sounds, I am attempting to make at least a $16,000,000 major motion picture through crowd-sourcing with no experience in film whatsoever. Obviously this is slightly ridiculous and the odds are against us. However, if we were to succeed we would collectively make some rather absurd history together. If you are able to donate to the Kickstarter I would greatly appreciate your contribution to this important yet silly project. You are only charged if the project is approved (which is probably less likely than winning the lottery) so it is a rather low risk commitment. If it does somehow make 16 million dollars, I promise it will be worth it.
Thank you! Yours in the cause of disguise,
Jacob Nathan (The Master of The Master of Disguise)
