Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me - 2nd Kickstarter campaign!!!

Hi everyone!

Thanks to all of you we successfully funded our 1st Kickstarter campaign in May 2010. With your generous backing we were able to launch our production in Memphis and film the majority of the film. We wrapped production and started editing and working on the post-production in October 2011 and we premiered a "work-in-progress" at this year's SXSW. But now we need funding to finish the film - including funds to finish editing, color correction and audio mixing, as well as photo and music clearances. But we are so close to finally being able to share this film with all of you! If you are able, please consider backing us once again. We have even more amazing rewards this time ranging from $5 - $5,000 so no matter what you can give there's a great reward for you! And even if you are not able to give please help us spread the word. We are so grateful to all of you for helping us launch our production and we would be eternally gratefully if you could help us finish it! WE CAN DO THIS!

Here's the link to the new campaign:

Thank you friends!

Production update from Memphis and your rewards are in the mail!!!!

Dear friends,

Just wanted to let you know that we're very busy filming down in Memphis and everything is going very well! We've been reviewing the footage and it looks great, we're so excited to share it with all of you!

On the rewards front, we've been so busy filming that we got behind on shipping but if you did pledge for a reward you'll be pleased to hear that we're sending everything out this week via USPS.

So look for your awesome rewards sometime next week (fingers crossed on that, we all know the postal service is a bit poky) and thank you for your patience! We hope you enjoy your well-deserved reward!

Thanks again for your support! We'll continue to send updates via Kickstarter and Facebook. If you aren't already, become our fan on Facebook. You'll get updates, photos, videos and other fun content from us and our fans.

Thank you friends,
Danielle & Drew

THANK YOU FRIENDS! And sign up for your rewards, will ya?!

Once again, thanks to all of you for pledging to the Big Star Story! We're deep into production down in Memphis and everything is going great!

If you pledged to receive a reward and haven't sent us your address or made your selection please do so ASAP! We need to order all the CDs, vinyl, box sets, books, etc. to get these out to you so please respond to the email and let us know if you want your stuff!

More updates to come!

Less than a week left!!!

I can't thank all of you enough for your generosity and outpouring of love for this project. It's been completely overwhelming! But it just goes to show how loved Big Star is so we can't wait to get down to Memphis and finish making this film so we can get it out to all you amazing people!

There's still a week left and even though we have almost doubled our goal if you know people who love Big Star then please send it out to them and encourage them to pledge. Any further funds will go directly to the post-production phase and will be much needed and appreciated. Just under a week left so spread the word!

And on the rewards front, all of you who have pledged for rewards should be getting your goods later this month or early June. We'll be in touch regarding the specifics of your rewards once the Kickstarter is over.

Our crew is set and we'll be traveling to Memphis early next week for the tribute show and a month of filming in Memphis - all because of you!

Once again, thank you so much and please keep spreading the word!!!
