Heading off to bed - 10 hours to go before we're on set shooting my short movie!
This really is a dream come true for me and I truly madly deeply thank you all for your support in making this dream a reality.
I have been living with story for years and so excited to have it all come to fruition! The feature version of this short is hovering in the very near future - so it's all really beyond my wildest dreams!
I have so much faith in the actors and this amazing crew we've been able to pull together so I know that we'll be able to pull it off but I just wanted to send you a note and let you know I really couldn't do it without each and every one of you and I so appreciate your donation to my dream!
And we're off! Yow! More to come soon!
A mere twenty four hours left in the Kickstarter campaign!
Please forward today - paste on facebook, tweet - we're so close to $17,000 and then you know what happens - it's all unicorns, rainbows and disco balls!
Spent the weekend in an amazing workshop with Joan Scheckel who really helped me crystalize all of what I learned in the three week AFI Directing Workshop for Women - really looking forward to diving into pre-production!
There are some ambitious elements in my short including a dream sequence in a working fish cannery - we found our cannery - yay! But, we might need to rent some honey wagons and porto potties for our cast and crew - help us get some porto potties today. Every dollar will go straight into the short.
Here is the link for the Kickstarter - http://kck.st/Jwcg33 - please share, forward, tweet, google plus, path, pin and please donate!
Also don't forget if you donate $2,500, $5,000 and $10,000 levels - my husband Jean-Pierre will DJ a dance party for you at your home for 3 hours! And I will get the dance party going!
If you can't donate - you can still help by posting on your facebook or forwarding this email to your friends!
