Hey all. Hope everyone is well. As we continue to embark on our funding journey with this important project, we continue to seek out individuals and organizations that may be willing to help "move the needle" as they say to help us get into production. We are waiting for some answers regarding potential larger funding, however we continue to move forward until our funding journey is complete.
With the celebrity attachment and interest in addition to the recently attached award winning crew, we feel like this short film will certainly be successful on the festival circuit and elsewhere. Our ultimate goal is to shoot a feature film version after garnering success with the short.
To those who may be interested in Executive Producer credits and/or potential investment opportunities, please feel free to reply as this is something we're offering. Since we are going to be developing a feature down the line, there is an opportunity to be involved throughout the whole journey. Please feel free to contact the following email if you know anyone or if you yourself may be interested in the latter:
All the best
We did it folks! Thanks to all of your contributions, we have met our goal on Kickstarter with 9 Days still remaining! Overall, we have now raised approximately $13,200 from crowd funding and fundraiser event efforts!
This will allow us to show some of our potential financiers that the people have spoken up and want to see this picture made. We feel like we're very close to obtaining our complete budget goal. If our potential donors come on board, we will be ready to green-light. We will not stop the mission until it is a reality.
Feel free to pass the word on as people can still contribute here on Kickstarter within the nine days.
I can tell you that we have an incredibly dedicated, passionate, well-skilled team that will certainly execute this project with 150%. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts.
As you might know, we are teamed with 2 non profits organizations. 1) The Greater Los Angeles Agency on Deafness, Inc and 2) the Schenectady Youth Boxing (SYB) Program
As the creator of this project and always wanting to give back to my own hometown community in some way, we will be giving an opportunity to a young boxer from the SYB program to come out here and partake in the film. Take a look at the attached News segment from WNYT 13 NBC of myself and the founder of SYB Vince Kittle talking about the project with News Anchor Dan Bazile.
to tell 5 friends... That's been the success of many campaigns similar to ours. Advocates of our mission and cause continue to speak up and new,fresh audiences are built on a daily basis. With the power of social media nowadays, some Kickstarter campaign exceed their goals by far. All contributions reflect much more than dollars...it's about being a part of something much greater.
Again, thanks to the family and friends who have helped contribute to this campaign. I also want to give a special thanks to all those R.I.D (Registered Interpreters for the Deaf) around the U.S. who have believed in our mission and made a contribution last week.
We have approximately 15 days left of the campaign. Tel/Email 5 friends to come to our site and check us out. I wanted to share a few links with you guys. You can meet some of our team face to face.
Here is our captioned video link from our first campaign (on IndieGoGo) featuring producer Derrex Brady, Writer/Creator/Prod. M.D. Walton, Dr. Patricia Hughes from our community partner (The Greater LA Agency on Deafness, Inc.) and TCR consultant (actor/activist) CJ Jones: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POhd9ZJmszA
A RESOUNDING Success. I just wanted to thank all of you guys who have contributed thus far to our campaign. We look at this more than just a film, but truly a mission. Your contributions mean so much more than just helping bring a film on its feet; so a huge THANK YOU!
All the best
