Dear wonderful people! Can you please help us raise money to finish this movie? We are trying to raise finishing funds so we can pay for the animation, the editor, the sound-mix, the audio-mix, and maybe just maybe, a transfer to HDCam. These things are all painfully expensive. But we're oh-so close to being able to share the film with the world, we just need the extra cashmoneys and we'll able to finish this thing! But first, read a little about our film
THE MUSLIMS ARE COMING! Synopsis:
A group of Muslim-American standup comedians go on the road to counter Islamophobia using the only weapon they have: jokes. The Muslims Are Coming! follows these comics as they visit big cities, rural villages, and everything in between to do shows, meet locals, counter the haters and make new friends. Commentary from pop culture icons like The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart and Aasif Mandvi, Rachel Maddow, Janeane Garofalo, CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, comedians David Cross, Colin Quinn, and Lewis Black pepper the film as the comedians travel through middle America. Will audiences laugh? Will they make a difference? Will they make it back? Rest assured, you’ve never laughed this hard at a Muslim.

Ha! We don't actually know yet! It hasn't been designed so we're open to suggestions. However, we do promise that the tshirt will look DELIGHTFUL and COOL.
We're trying to figure out what the best reward point is for the streaming/download of the movie and our research of other kickstarter projects shows a pretty wide spectrum. We settled on $37, which includes getting your name in the movie, on the website, and getting a copy of Negin's last film "Nerdcore Rising." So, we hope that reward makes sense, but as time goes on, maybe we can do more to make it more palatable.And as always, we are open to suggestions!!
