Home Stretch!! - 48 hours to go.
I cannot believe we only have 48 hours to go!
To all the new backers - welcome. To all the old backers - good work reeling in the new backers! To everyone - THANK YOU for what has so far been an incurably gratifying process.
58 days ago, I had lockjaw from the stress of even launching this campaign. Now as tick tock towards the finish line I am filled with jubilation and excitement for the next stage of post production. All thanks to you guys, the pledgers, who made it all possible.
Since we made our target there has still been some sensational generosity coming the Soccermen way. All your facebooking, twittering and real-world yammering has really paid off and the way you pledgers have made this project your own has been a fantastic Red Bull substitute for me for all those late nights.
All this has pushed our total to a whopping $38,586 from 304 backers with 2 days remaining. That's a 110% of the original target which means, according to the Kickstarter terms, we should get at least $35,000 to finish the movie. RESULT!!!
If there is anyone in your social network you think has been holding out, please feel free to usher them towards the donor site! It's really now or never and we wouldn't want them to miss out on this truly "grass roots" movement. (Yes I may have exhausted that pun, but come on, it's a jolly good one and I only have 2 days left to use it!)
There still is an awful lot to come from me and stay posted for the campaign round-up which will go out after the curtain drops in 2 days time. But for now - keep spreading the word. You've spread it awfully well for the last 2 months. Why stop now!
