You might not recognize Stephen Tobolowsky by name, but you know his face and voice from his performances in Glee, Memento, Groundhog Day, Heroes, and Californication, just to name a few.  And if you check out his new Kickstarter film project, you’ll get to know a lot more of his story as well.  Based on the podcast, The Tobolowsky Files, created by David Chen, the planned film version seeks to bring the long-time character actor’s stories to an ever broader audience.  But they need your help to make this dream a reality.  Hit the jump for today’s Indie Spotlight on The Primary Instinct: A Stephen Tobolowsky Storytelling Film.

Watch Chen and Tobolowsky talk about the film below, including one fine example of stories from Tobolowsky’s life.  Then head on over to their Kickstarter page to help contribute.

More on the film and your Kickstarter donations from Chen:

Stephen’s stories have been heard and read by tens of thousands of people around the world. But as someone who’s seen his storytelling live in front of an audience of a thousand people, I can say that it’s one of the most incredible theater experiences I’ve ever witnessed. I want to share this experience with the world by creating a concert film of Stephen’s stories, and I’d be honored if you would be a part of it.

We have some great Kickstarter rewards, including the opportunity to meet Stephen backstage at one of our live shows, as well as the chance to have Stephen perform a private show for you and 20 of your friends in person. In addition, every reward tier $15 and above will receive a link to stream the movie when it premieres!
