We're almost there!
Happy Thanksgiving! I hope all of you are enjoying some wonderful food and great company today. It seems appropriate that today we're very close to reaching our initial goal of $2,000 for the documentary.
So I wanted to take this chance to thank you all so much for the pledges to the project, I can't tell you how much it's meant to have all of you support the film. This has been an interesting experiment to try this instead of going for grants, and I'm really excited that it looks like it's going to work. Given the spirit of this particular Thursday, I really am thankful that all of you were interested in our project.
There are a couple exciting items of note beyond just the near-success we have here:
A formal proposal has been posted on Issuu. This is a 12-page fully-designed report that describes what the film is about, who's involved, how we plan to spend each day and a detailed budget.
We're in the beginning phases of our social media campaign. One thing we're trying to do is get 500 likes through Facebook, so if you haven't had a chance to, we would really appreciate you sending the link on to some friends or making it your status. It would help a lot, and hopefully we can get as many people to see the project as possible.
Starting next week, we're going to be posting a new image every day. We want to give you a reason to keep checking this page out and to know more about the issue, so we're going to start posting a new statistic or fact as the main image on this site every day. If you want to know more about the story you're helping to tell, definitely check here every day.
In about a week, we'll be posting an updated video that will serve as our introduction to the project. With Thanksgiving break, we couldn't really make the elaborate video we wanted to last week, so starting Monday, we'll be shooting and editing a new longer-form introduction. So once that happens, you should come back and check out our video-making skills in action.
Hopefully all of this makes you guys as excited as it makes us. We're so happy to see this Kickstarter project has apparently worked out, and we're so close to reaching our goal. Thank you for all the support, and for all of you passing this along. All of it helps so much, and it means a lot to us that you're interested in the project.
Again, happy Thanksgiving. You all are awesome.
