First of all, I just want to give a great big THANK YOU to everyone who's supported "The Cucaranchula" so far. Things haven't been easy for the arts these days, and with many grants and other sources of funding drying up, it's wonderful to know that so many people are willing to chip in to help support an independent short film.
With one week to go before the deadline, we're currently 76% funded. Please keep up the love and support, and pass the word along to anyone who'd be interested in lending a hand! Remember, Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing site. If we don't reach $5,000 by May 22nd, we don't get a dime and the Cucaranchula will never crawl up the arrogant Clive Bradley's pant-leg.
Things have been going well! Tri-Marq Communication's Amy Wroebel has willingly offered to help out with storyboarding and blocking. Purple Onion Films donated material to help construct the set! Studio MKE has offered to help with promotional materials, such as posters and production stills. And many of Milwaukee's best and brightest filmmakers are offering their help with pre-production, production, and post-production.
Once again, thank you for your support, but we still need that last little 24% in order to jump from script to screen.
Best wishes! This is going to be awesome.
-Kate Balsley (and the cast and crew of "The Cucaranchula.")
