METAL EVOLUTION: Sam Dunn (Banger Films) Talks About "The Lost Episode On Extreme Metal" & Why VH1 Classic Didn't Fund It!
Due to an overwhelming demand from Metal fans worldwide, Grammy-nominated and Juno award-winning Banger Films is setting out to raise funds to make what has become known as "The Lost Episode" a reality. 'Metal Evolution: Extreme Metal' "The Lost Episode" covers co-director Sam Dunn's favorite genres: Death Metal, Black Metal and Grindcore, and he is reaching out to Metal fans to help make it happen!
"Hundreds of fans have emailed us demanding, pleading, that we do this episode," says Banger Films co-founder Sam Dunn. "So in response we're launching an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funding within the Metal community to finance the episode. The goal is to raise $175,000 in 90 days!" The campaign kicked off Friday, September 14th. Details of the campaign, including cool donor gifts at various contribution levels can be found here: http://www.indiegogo.com/ExtremeMetal
