Indiegogo campaign to complete final, posthumous documentary special on Ralphie May

When I sat down with Ralphie May and Lahna Turner to podcast in the green room of Gotham Comedy Club back in March 2015, a woman with a camera filmed the whole thing.

They planned to make a documentary about themselves as a comedy couple and a family.

Instead, they separated. Ralphie later died.

And now, Turner hopes to use all of the footage they have from throughout 2015 into one final documentary and comedy special: Love You, Ralphie.

She’s seeking $75,000 from fans and supporters via Indiegogo, which would cover post-production costs and distribution.

Proceeds from the special will go to his widow, Lahna Turner, and two children, April and August May.  A portion of the proceeds from the completed project will also be donated in honor of Ralphie’s memory to help families cope with bereavement, and to to help individuals and families cope with mental illness and addiction issues.

They’ve raised $15,800 so far. The Indiegogo campaign has nine days remaining. Please consider supporting it.
