$1,110. Wow. Thank you SO much to everyone who donated and helped me reach my goal. I can't wait to get this film going and show you all the finished product in May!
I don't think crowd funding is typically supposed to be that easy... but I had three things that really helped me:
1) Truly amazing friends and family members. Your generosity and support is unparalleled. Thank you.
2) A reachable goal of $1,000. We have to remember that most films cost way more money to make, and this budget is remarkably tiny in comparison.
3) Excellent advice from the ever wise Jason Brubaker and his site FilmmakingStuff.com. Seriously--whether you're a filmmaker or not, this website is definitely worth checking out.
24 days are still left on the clock if you would still like to donate! That extra money will allow me to enter my film into some festivals and buy higher quality gear.
To roughly quote the Black Eyed Peas,
let's get it starrrrttedd in heeeeeerrre.
