Gone in 31 Hours
We have less than 31 hours now to get to our goal. Our backers have been PHENOMENAL. There are currently 232 of you who, together, as a community, have raised $33,845 in just 28 days.
That is ridiculous. It is all caps AMAZING.
E pluribus unum, right?
This is what greatness looks like, guys. This is what a group of badasses coming together can do.
What you have accomplished is almost unreal and to ask more of you would be sick and twisted.
I am, however, sick and twisted of course.
We've got 31 hours to get to 40,000. If we don't get there we lose it all. The money disappears like someone shook up the Etch A Sketch of our lives. And then used the thing to beat me and Craig to death.
If you could spare just one or two more tweets, Facebook updates, email blasts and whatnot it could be the difference between getting this movie made and not.
This is the new model. You are the media. This is what greatness looks like. YOU are what greatness looks like. And I love you all.
31 hours to live forever.
p.s. One of our earliest backers, Jason, sent in the brilliant video of why he became a part of the film. And it made me laugh my ass off, even if it's maybe a little too kind to me. Give it a watch and share it with your friends if you would.

At this level you will receive a “thank you” on the movie’s official website, access to behind-the-scenes updates and the heartfelt gratitude of the filmmakers who understand that each dollar you give was almost surely difficult to come by and may have been stolen from small children or older people, who are often scrappier than they look. Any donation will be of great help to us as we go forward.Estimated delivery:

MONKEY CELL-PHONE THIEF LEVEL: At this level you get a download of a behind the scenes documentary chronicling the process of making this picture. I don't know exactly what this thing will look like, but I bet it'll be pretty darn funny. Everyone who gives or has given even a dollar gets this. If you gave at the other one dollar level you still get it.Estimated delivery:
Pledge $10 or moreYou selected
At this level you will receive a digital download of the official score/soundtrack of music from and inspired by the film Love Letter. We don’t know which artists will be featured on the soundtrack but we’re pretty sure it’s going to be dope. You’ll also get the “thank you” on the film’s website, the updates and ten times as much gratitude as the guys who gave us one dollar. And we already liked those guys a bunch so...yeah.Estimated delivery:
Pledge $25 or moreYou selected
At this mark you will receive a special edition DVD of the film upon its completion to complement the thanks on the website, the behind the scenes updates and a download of the film’s soundtrack. And, of course, the gratitude. Seriously, we’re gonna love the crap out of you. But not in a creepy way.Estimated delivery:
Pledge $50 or moreYou selected
At fifty dollars you will receive a digital copy of the film’s screenplay, written by Ethan Hunter & Craig Thieman as well as a “Special Thanks” in the end credits of the actual movie. If you’ve ever wanted a film credit or wondered if screenwriters can spell, this reward may be perfect for you. Of course you also get the DVD, the soundtrack, the updates, a thank you on the website and all kinds of gratitude. Sticky amounts of gratitude.Estimated delivery:

As a very special reward for backing us at the $100 dollar level, award-winning writer Ethan Hunter will ghostwrite an actual love letter of at least 250 words to the person of your choice. Each letter will be unique and personalized, utilizing details and anecdotes provided by you. Love letters sent to or from his actual ex-girlfriends are not allowed. On his good days he’s pretty close to losing it as it is. He will only write nice letters, just so you know, but he’s pretty good at this sort of thing and I wouldn’t be surprised if the letter results in special naked time. But that’s not all! For showing such kindness and support you will also receive an 11x17 Love Letter movie poster signed by the filmmakers to go with the DVD, the download of the screenplay, the “Special Thanks” credit in the film, the thanks on the website, the behind the scenes updates and the download of the movie’s soundtrack. And it’s at this point that the gratitude does get a little creepy. We might start doodling hearts around your name in our notebooks or something.Estimated delivery:

At this level you will get everything mentioned above, except now the “Special Thanks” credit becomes an “Associate Producer” credit. Boom. You’re a Hollywood player just like that. Except not really. But you can tell people that. Many of them may believe you. This credit is of course on the film itself and will also go on IMDB, assuming they allow it. And, as if that weren’t enough, the film's director, Craig Thieman will personally make you cookies. Homemade goshdarn cookies, guys! Have you tried cookies? Those things are tasty.Estimated delivery:

Can’t make it to Wilmington but want to give us $500? We’ll take it! We’ll switch out the featured extra role for a one-hour Skype call with Craig Thieman and Ethan Hunter, the film’s director and writers. We can talk about our movie or about your own projects or just talk about Doctor Who and comics for an hour. Whatever you want. If you ask nicely, Ethan will probably do a terrible Christopher Walken impression for you. You’ll also get everything at the associate producer level including those cookies. You don’t want to sleep on these cookies, guys.Estimated delivery:

Well, this is getting silly. If you invest at this level your awesomeness is just crazy. You’ll get everything at the $1,000 dollar level and we’ll do a “Sweded” version of any movie you choose, just for you. That means we’ll make an ultra-no-budget version of any movie you like, just for you. Ethan will write it, Craig will direct it and if you can get to Wilmington you can even star in it if you want. The finished “Sweded” film will be at least five minutes in length and as creative and fun as possible.Estimated delivery:

Really? Damn, guys. If you buy in at this level you’re just the greatest. Like, for real. At this mark you get everything at the $5,000 dollar level and now when you come for the film's premiere screening we’ll put you and one other person up in a historic house in downtown Wilmington, NC. We’ll pick you up in a limo and you’ll have dinner with the filmmakers before going to the screening. Unfortunately even at this level travel is still entirely up to you.Estimated delivery:
