The local filmmakers over at Running Wild Films are known for ambitious undertakings and they’re gearing up to prove that Hollywood has nothing on Phoenix.

One of our favorite local acts until we commandeered their bassist for our editorial staff. The H.i frontman is going away to school so they only have a short time to get into the studio to record their new material before their hiatus.

The Gurley Girls are a “femme-folk pop-rock band” consisting of seven women out of Prescott, our friendly northern neighbor. They are ready to record their first studio album and need a little extra help. Earn early copies of the album or even your own song. Help these ladies reach their modest funding goals.

When you’re an arist, the loss of equipment is not only heartbreaking but a financial difficulty as well. Local artist and instructor Brian Staeheli lost his lathe and his computer on the same day. He needs a little community support to get back in the game! And his rewards for contributions are fabulous, handcrafted wood items.
Michael and Sharon Merriman have tested their sushi skills in the brick-and-mortar setting. Now they’re ready to hit the road with Phoenix’s first sushi food truck! “Dokoka” means “anywhere” and that’s what the Merriman’s are planning on creating. Sushi Anywhere.
