Author/Filmmaker Robert Tinnell talks about Writer/Political Activist Kay Boyle.


Please help me complete my film by making a Tax Deductible Donation.

I need to raise $30,000 to complete, Dangerous: Kay Boyle.

I have been working on this film for 28 years, and funding has always been difficult to obtain. Potential funders have no idea who Kay Boyle was so I paid for many things out of my pocket in order to get the footage I needed. Over the years I have personally devoted thousands of hours and tens of thousands of dollars to this film because I have always believed that people need to know who Kay Boyle was. She was an amazing artist, woman and role model.

Check this site every day this month to meet a different friend of mine who will tell you why they think this film is important and why it needs to be finished.

The only way this is going to work is if you help me. I understand that money is tight, it’s tight for all of us, but even a $5 contribution helps. And if you can’t afford that, then pass the word along to all of your friends and followers and ask them to check out my site and maybe they can help.

I am happy to announce that I have a production partner on the film, The Fredericksburg Athenaeum, a 501c(3) non-profit organization so all donations are tax deductible.

For more information about Kay click on the Kay Boyle Film tab at the top of the page and check out the different pages.

The filming portion of Dangerous: Kay Boyle is complete. Over the years I shot 25,000 feet of 16mm film and a workprint was struck. The early editing on this movie was done in film, but now I need to transfer everything to digital to complete it. For more information click here. (Help Us Tell Kay Boyle’s Story)
