NEW YORK, NY, January 09, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- David Seth Cohen launched a campaign on Kickstarter in hopes of making his dream of having a drink with Adam Sandler a reality. The FINDING SANDLER campaign must raise $35,000 in 30 days for him to see any money at all. Kickstarter does not release funds unless the goal is met. At the time of writing, with 23 days left, it's raised over $11,300. Cohen now needs the help of the masses to continue the momentum.
In 1998, fresh out of college at Towson University, Cohen landed a gig as Wardrobe Assistant on the feature film, Big Daddy. Thrilled to be working with comical legend and idol, Adam Sandler, Cohen was on top of the world. One day an assignment led him to Sandler's door where he was invited in by Sandler to stay for a drink. Cohen, regretfully, said no so that he could return to his car and drive his colleague home as promised.
Years later, he had a vivid dream in which he went to Hollywood to find Adam Sandler. During the dream, he searched for what seemed like days without help or luck until they ran into each other in the Happy Madison lunchroom. There, Sandler and Cohen walked and talked until Cohen was jolted awake. Once woken, he felt a newfound energy for that very incident was a sign to create FINDING SANDLER. The film documents Cohen's journey through travel, trial and tribulations of Finding Sandler to recapture what could have been. Well-known figures like Billy Joel, Emeril Lagasse, Mick Foley, Carmen Electra, Twisted Sister's Dee Snider, Late show with David Letterman's Paul Shaffer and NY Movie Mascot Radioman all play a part in the film, feeling Cohen's passion and inspiring him to stay persistent.
"When I first started this project in 2006, I had no clue what I was getting myself into. I will not stop until this film is complete and I hope that my mission will inspire others to continue fighting for their dreams. Friends, family, and the Kickstarter community have been so supportive, but I need more people to join Team FINDING SANDLER to make this a reality. We are asking for help from Adam Sandler fans and everyone who has had or has a dream!" requests Cohen.
With this last push from the Kickstarter campaign, Cohen will finally get to finish FINDING SANDLER and share his story with the world.
