Did You Catch “On Seduction,” Episode 1 of Amateur Thursdays?

In Discussion by Edward Nawotka

Today’s lead story looks at several literary and artistic projects that have sought funding through Kickstarter.com.

Back in June, we wrote about one such project — Amateur Thursdays. We’re happy to report that the project raised $9,600 from 90 backers. It was enough to support the production of three episodes, the first of which “On Seduction” debuted at the Frankfurt Book Fair last month. Giovanna Calvino, one of the producers, also contributed a piece about the show to this year’s Frankfurt Show Dailies, which you can read here.

If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look, and let us know what you think in the comments.
