Firstly, kinda big news... WE HIT OUR TARGET! That means The Hit Squad will be funded!
I will be recording a thankyou message for the backers later tomorrow, there is still 12 hours left so please DONT STOP BELIEVING and the more pledges we get, the more awesome we can make The Hit Squad!
Im overwhelmed at the support, I really am.
Proper video update tomorrow
So, we're 4 days away from the end and there's still a chunk to go (£3k) before we hit our target. I've been hidden deep working hard on getting as much animating done as possible, it's super tough being a one-man team wearing all hats, but it's being done!
It's still possible something magical can be pulled out of the bag last minute for the project, and the pledges are still coming in, so if everyone can give a tweet or a status update over the next 4 days, that would be super helpful and super brilliant.
If I dont hit the target, all is not lost, however, it will be a big hurdle in the movies way.
Thanks for all your support so far, you've been great!
LETS GIVE IT ONE LAST GASP!
Hey everyone! We're up to £1400, we may have someone who will match all the pledges, so that means we'll only have to hit £2500 by ourselves! So please please tell everyone you know about the campaign and get them pledging!!
Thanks so much for your support so far! You're all fantastic!
Chris Blundell - Director of The Hit Squad
Half way through the campaign that is.
We're currently at £1210 out of £5000, I've lowered some of the tiers, so for example, you can now be pixellated as an extra in the movie for £99 (which technically means you'll be on a credits list with Robert Llewellyn!) and you can get your name as graffiti in the movie for £25.
Really need your help for the next 2 weeks, tweeting to people, friends, lovers, ex-lovers, pets and hairstylists and getting The Hit Squad in the faces of people that may like it!
I'm working away on the movie as hard as I can, as I have been doing for the past few years, with your help it can be finished VERY SOON!!
Thanks again everyone, you're the best
