The Muslims Are Coming! WORLD PREMIERE @ AUSTIN FILM FEST!!
Dearest Kickstarter Folk!
We did it! We managed to finish the film and actually pay for the editing and the drives and the animation.... and no checks bounced! ...and we didn't have to resort to stealing anything! AND as a result we're not in prison! So basically, you're support of this film kept us out of prison. Thank you thank you thank you!
We are in the throes of putting together the first of your rewards so stay tuned for all of that. Rewards that actually involve receiving the movie will still take a bit of time on account of the strange commercial forces we gots to deal with, but we'll keep you posted.
As for the WORLD PREMIERE, that will be at the Austin Film Festival on Oct. 19 with a second screening on Oct. 21. We're so thrilled, nervous, worried, excited, and nervous again! But we really want you to come - if you're within any kind of reasonable (or unreasonable) distance from Austin, TX, please come and join us! You can buy tickets at the door and if you would you like to buy group tickets in advance, we, the filmmakers, can arrange that for you through some special magic so hit us up on the old timey email. But for the rest of you, if you're a badge holder, well you can just walk right on in, if you're not, you can get individual tickets at the door for the cut-rate price of $9 - you get a bunchload of adorable Muslims for that price. It can't be beat! Tell your friends!
