A tremendous thanks again to all the backers and everyone else who made this Kickstarter campaign a success! I just created a facebook page where I will be posting updates on the completion process and beyond. The first milestone is posted today. Please "like" the page to follow the film's progress.
I'm currently endeavoring to raise funds to cover festival, promotion and distribution costs, as well as past production and editing costs. Honorary credits are still available for people who can donate at the Bronze, Silver, Platinum or Gold level (details are on the Contribute page of the documentary website). Donations, at any amount, through my project page on the IDA website are fully tax-deductible. As I learn of new contributions, I'll update the thank-you list and funding/budget graphic on the website.
Completion is underway, as well as the production of reward items for the Kickstarter backers.
