CONGRATULATIONS BRIDEGROOM BACKERS! WE MADE KICKSTARTER HISTORY!
Just 30 days ago, we announced our dream of turning Shane and Tom’s story into a full-length documentary. Thousands of you from all over the world have responded, taking a stand against bigotry and hatred and helping us reach and even exceed our fundraising goal. This would not have been possible without all of you standing together. This truly is your film-- the people’s film. And now your support has led to Bridegroom becoming the most funded film project in the history of Kickstarter! Amazing!
And we are even more proud that our documentary, which was born from Shane’s original YouTube video, would end up being funded by the power of the people on Kickstarter. Please know that this film will represent anyone who has ever been judged, condemned or ostracized for being who they are and loving who they love. We believe everyone deserves equal rights and Bridegroom will seek to play a pivotal role in bringing these rights to not only all Americans, but to people all over the world.
We will start production immediately, doing interviews, as well as traveling to Shane’s and Tom’s respective home states of Montana and Indiana. And we will do whatever we can to insure that Bridegroom premieres this fall, in mid to late October.
We will also, within a few weeks, be emailing you instructions regarding your rewards (t-shirt size, photo for mosaic logo, e-mail & mailing address, etc.) For now, please enjoy some of the favorite comments we have received from you during this campaign. (posted below)
We pledge to keep you updated regarding the production of Bridegroom and share any exciting news that comes our way. You can not only follow the progress of our film on Kickstarter, but please be sure to frequently check out www.BridegroomMovie.com and www.Facebook.com/BridegroomMovie.Thank you again for inspiring and believing in us, for never wavering in your support and for being the real heroes who made Bridegroom possible!
"Shane, can I just say what an incredible sweetheart your mom is with all her supportive postings. She rocks!!!! As a Midwestern boy myself (now living in Jersey City) and whose parents chose their Catholicism over their 2 gay sons, will you please remember to give her a big hug and a kiss next time you see her, for all of us orphans out here?"
"Myles Mccue, consider yourself and your brother hugged by a straight girl from Philly… for Shane and Tom and also for you two."
"Living in Denmark we have gay marriage already in place.... so I'm happy to help and make sure everyone can have this fundamental right. I m so proud to be a backer in this project and see that the target is already achieved and beyond."
"…Thank you for your contribution to not just the gay community, but to the world. This will be remembered, this movie, this movement will be referenced for generations. Tom will be remembered, although we never knew him, we love him and feel your pain. Good luck. Be brave."
"So proud of everyone with this. No more so than Shane and Linda. There is no better way to honor Tom and his impact on this world than with this film. Let's put the world to Rights!!!"
"An absolute honour to be able to be a very small part in such an amazing project, a stepping stone towards FULL EQUALITY - love from London England"
