Thank You For Your Support!
Today, with 11 days left in this exciting campaign, we are at 42%
I'm optimistic Eighth Street funding will come together, but it's going to take a little networking. Thank you all for sharing the link and the video with friends, coworkers, and family. It is encouraging and exciting to see the interest in this project!
As a quick update, planning for production is going well. Here are the highlights:
The Artist, Dave Young Kim, is back from a European/NYC expedition and working out the timing details of the mural creation.
I've been auditioning countless tracks for the soundtrack as well as communicating with West Oakland labels about supplying original music. A portion of the Kickstarter budget will go to this effort, which is an exciting opportunity for a unique sound for Eighth Street.
Since the launch of this campaign, Canon has released a new version of the cameras I used for the initial filming. The new Canon 5D3 has driven down the rental costs of the 5D2, which will allow for slight restructuring of my budget. My plan is to rent a couple motion control tools with the new funds. A small crane and camera slider combo will allow a few unique shots and overall higher production value.
I've received a few leads on interesting people in the 8th St. neighborhood for interviews once production resumes. We'll have opportunities to capture some unique footage.
Thank you all for your support of this project. Each contribution is greatly appreciated and should certainly be considered a small donation towards an uplifting effort in West Oakland.
Please share the video with someone this week - I'm working hard to spread the word!
