WOOOOOOOOW!!!!!!! YOU DID IT!!
Yes, YOU DID it!! 24 hours left and we just passed 50,000. OMG! You are changing history. We are 842 people who belive that we are strong togehther. That many people together can make a difference. A big difference. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!
This is a dream coming true! I'm touched. I'm honoured.I'm thrilled! I'm greatful. This is a truly unforgettable moment! To be able to work freely with Creative Commons, to be able to share the work I do with everyone, and invite everyone to be part of the creation.
And of course, to be able to tell this story. Because I have to tell it. Because it’s about belonging. Thank you for letting me belong to you and thank you for belonging to Granniverse. And THANK YOU for letting Granniverse come true!!!
This is the beginning of something really amazing. More than 850 people have funded a movie, which will be released for free. You are giving away a film for free to the world! What a gift. I do believe that this is incredibly important. For real.
Because I believe your investment is part of creating a more inclusive world, a world where stories are free, where the stories belong to the people. Because stories have such an impact on the world.
YOU ACTUALLY DID IT! No words is enough, because this is bigger than a film. This is a movement towards free culture. For me it’s about peace.
There are some more fantastic people who have made this kickstarter campaign possible, without them this would not have happened.
Helene Granqvist – the producer. I met Helene three years ago when I were in the middle of the shooting of Nasty Old People. She believed in what I'm doing from the beginning, and she believed in Granny’s Dancing on The Table, from the first line in the script, all the way through dark and bright moments and all the way through this campaign. Without her there would be no script, no pilot and no kickstartercampaign. Helene is magical.
Valeria Richter – she has been with me through the whole scriptwriting process, giving advice, reading, reading again, listening, with patiance. Valeria I amazing. and without her this would not be possible.
Bobbi Augustine Sand and Karin Ryding. I met them two years ago, when they started to develop the game. We have been confused together many times, had breakthroughs, dark and fantastic moments, but all the time they just kept believing in Granniverse. And I just love them because they are truly inspiring and wonderful people!
Finnur Sverrisson, Richard Topgaard, Petter Mårtensson, Alinah Helsing and Linus Bohman has been working with the homepage, with the communication and they have been telling me that I have to be more clear in my communication. And they are of course right. And I thank them so much for their wonderful work!
And then we have Peter Sunde and Linus Olsson who made The Promo Bay (The kidney bay) possible!! Those last days have been just amazing!! Thank you!!
And of course there is a whole team with cinematographer, animatior, graphic designer, sound designer, composer, set designer interaction designer, and so on and so on.. who are all behind Granniverse.
Now we will start to prepare for the first part of the shooting and there are many things to come, and many many ways in which you will be able to take part in creating this film and this story universe. Many of you have already started, by tellig your granny-stories. You can still tell your Granny-story at granniverse.com and keep yourself updated at www.facebook.com/grannysdancing
And I’ll be thrilled to continue to post updates here, about the progress of Granniverse!!!
Lots of love and peace and smiels and thanx!!!!!!!!
Hanna and the whole granny-team!
