We did it! We hit our Kickstarter goal and then some, with a little burst of energy at the finish like from Anne Cosenza, Alexander Harris, and Wayne Joseph! Welcome to the wonderful family of film financiers that make up the backbone of 'April Riley'! Each and every one of you have brought us this far out of the kindness of your hearts, and we're forever indebted. You can realistically expect George or Shane or I to now stalk you as we attempt to repay the favor......just kidding......but I'm really not......
ANYWAY, now it's time for polling! You're going to get a questionnaire from us getting all of your contact information so we can send you Thank-You Notes and a bunch o' other nifty goodies. Some of your gifts won't be coming anytime soon, as we do still have to make this movie, but fear not, they'll be a-comin' down the road.
Once again, thank you all so very, very much. You've helped to make a few young filmmakers' dreams come true, and we promise you won't regret it ;)
Wishing you a very happy April,
Pres., Zandrak Productions
PS - We would love for ALL OF YOU to be background actors in 'April Riley' this summer, so if you think you might like to be in a movie then come on down to New Jersey in July or August and we'll put you in! You can email me at email@example.com if you have any more questions about that
Wow! Alysha Currie, David Brickel, David and Bridgette Sidoti, Richard and Joan Krablin, Barbara Murray and Valeria Malta have all helped bring 'April Riley' above and beyond our fundraising goal for Kickstarter! Thanks to you all, we're not 107% of the way there! Thank you to everyone who has helped make this project possible so far - without you, we'd be a bunch of filmmakers arguing over peaches versus nectarines. Thanks again!
Our shooting location has officially changed to New Jersey, and we're aiming to film predominantly in the town of Clinton in Hunterdon County. The photogenic nature of the town really embodies the aesthetic of the film that we're going for, and will ultimately be a great aid in bringing to life the film's universe. Thank you to Karen Darling, Darl Lopez, Claudia Brian Ethan and Ronan Howell, Carol and Bruce Newman, Aunt Chris, Janak Das, and Ali Grange! Thanks to you, we're within arms reach of funding - only 7% left! We wouldn't be where we are without your support - welcome to the family. Thank you again so very, very much.
It may be snowing in April, but the warm generosity of our backers makes everything all better. Heartfelt thanks to M. G. Gordon, Mary Ann Fischer, Hana Carpenter, Kate Murray, Julia and Dominick Sidoti, Josie and Jerome Boyer, bellb300, Ingrid Price, and Deborah Hutcheson! Thank you so much! With your help, we've reached 75% of our funding goal! We're currently putting together our pre-production crew, consisting of our Producer, Locations Managers, Production Designer, Production Manager, Assistant Producers, Associate Producers, Casting Director, and Production Assistants.
