    Hi Fellow Education Blogger,

    My name is Sarah Camiscoli and I’m a part of the Outreach Team for the documentary Brooklyn Castle (ex-Chess Movie). It’s a great film about a low-income junior high school in Brooklyn, New York (65% of students are from homes living under the poverty level), that has the highest rated chess team in the whole country (the trailer is here — I hope you’ll watch: www.brooklyncastle.com). To cut to the chase, we’re very near finishing the film (in fact, we’ve just started to submit to film festivals) and rolling out our outreach campaign (which will focus on getting more chess programs in schools throughout the country). To pay for these things, we’re using Kickstarter. And I’m reaching out in the very humble hope that you – via your education blog — will help us let people know about our project, and spread the word.

    Our project page is here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rescuedmedia/finishing-brooklyn-castle-formerly-chess-movie
    I know you are immensely busy and there’s a lot of other chess news to cover, but if you might even give us and our project a mention, and we can get more eyes on it, I really think we can meet our goal. And, of course, we’d be immensely thankful.

    Thanks so much for your time, and best to you.
