9 days to go! Plus, meet some of the crew!
I hope you're all doing well and are surviving the holidays. Ironically, things have been pretty hectic in Boredomland as I try to secure everything for our January shoot. I finally have a little time to give you some updates on the project, so here goes!
MORE THAN HALFWAY!
I am currently more than halfway to my goal! With only 9 days to go, however, I'm feeling a bit of a pinch to get people on board. I am hoping next week will see a bell curve in my fundraising progress as those who haven't yet backed the project get on board. You've already shown your support, and I thank you for that, but if you have a couple minutes, there are still a couple things you can do to help!
1. Spread the word. Post the link to your facebook wall, tweet it, Tumbl it, or just email it to individuals that might have an interest in this project. Be explicit. Explain how important it is for me to raise AT LEAST $6,000, because any less will result in NO MONEY at all.
2. Consider boosting your pledge. If all 106 backers gave $1 extra, that would get me 2% closer to my goal. If they all gave $5 extra, I'd be 9% closer! It's amazing how this platform works!
MEET THE CREW!
So obviously, against Lizzie's best interest (or disinterest), I can't make this show all by myself. So I've hired a stellar crew to help make this show the biggest and baddest comedy this side of reality. Here's a brief intro to some of the men and women behind the madness!
Iain Marcks, Cinematographer
I met Iain through a mutual friend just about a week or so ago. We corresponded through email and decided to meet up and talk about the project. What sold me on him? He got it. It's really important to me that everyone involved in this project understands Lizzie, and might even have a little Lizzie inside themselves. He has since shown 100% dedication to bringing innovation and creativity to this show.
Check out his IMDB profile to see what else he's worked on. He has held many positions in the production process, and we're excited he'll be bringing his experience to this project!
Maggie Muldoon, Art Director
I met this California girl just this past year, and we've become fast friends. Although I've only known her a short time, I quickly fell enamored with her creative innovation, easy-going nature, and wicked sense of humor. What other women do you know who can rock a convincing Kenny Rogers costume complete with a belt buckle that plays "Islands in the Stream" when you press it?
She's also an amazing fine artist and illustrator! You can check out her website here!
Kate O'Eight, Co-writer
Kate is one of my best friends. We like to spend our time together making each other laugh and cry. But mostly laugh. I can't think of a single person on Earth who has a sense of humor that matches mine so perfectly, so I went to outer space to find her. Thank goodness, because Killing Time would suffer without her way with words.
Why not read some of them yourself on her blog?
ONE LAST THING...
I want to wish each and every one of my backers a very happy, healthy and joyful new year. Again, thank you for your involvement in the project. I look forward to updating you on our progress. Keep on killing time!
Love and donuts,
pledged of $6,000 goal
