A hat that says 'movies' on it.

NEW UPDATE: Amazing! We reached our second goal of $6,000 -- WE WILL LAUNCH A MOVIES BRAND for year-round movies products availability.

Please stay tuned to our UPDATE VIDEOS for more to come...

--------

Brand new Reward:

white mug w/ navy blue print (1 for $12 // or 5 for $39)

----------

UPDATE: Due to the phenomenal response, the movies hat is proud to announce a new stretch goal of $6,000. If we reach that, we will start a ‘movies’ brand! With our very own website, and more special edition movies products, like the 'movies' poster.

-------------

If you want a hat that says 'movies' on it, you've come to the right place! Please help us send this hat into production ASAP.

A website called CustomInk.com has agreed to make the hat, but they said we need to order 12 minimum, which comes out to $308.28 or $25 per hat. 

This is what the hat will look like

Perfect for movie buffs, or casual fans that like to escape to the theater every once in awhile.

Another goal is to get 250 people to buy the hat. If we can reach that number, CustomInk.com has agreed to let us get a test hat to make sure it looks okay.

Now you can get this movies t-shirt TOO...

Please DO NOT pledge for the hat below...

If we sell more than 12 of these, I lose a very important bet. Please don't get one. Thank you.

What's the point?

It's important to spread the message about movies. Most people like TV shows and virtual reality better now, or even internet games, but we shouldn't forget about movies, because there's been some good ones over the years like Diner and American graffiti. If people forgot about movies, we're in deep shit. So that's the main reason you should wear this hat. And don't be afraid to use it as a conversation starter. If someone asks you, "so what's the deal with the cap?" Just answer: "spreading the gospel, my brother". Be extra nice, since if you wear the hat, you're representing all movies. It's a lot of responsibility so don't take it lightly.

---------

Is movies a brand?

Updated answer: If we raise a stretch goal of $6,000, then yes, movies will become a brand. Old Answer: No. Unless people want more products that say the word 'movies'. Then, it may become one in the future.

"What brands you wear say a lot about your attitudes & sense of self."

--------

Remember: You're not just buying a hat, you're joining a special group of people making a statement about movies. We've already received commitments* by some of today's top filmmakers like Alex Ross Perry, Josh Safdie, Rick Alverson, Jay Duplass, and others to order a hat. Imagine wearing the same hat as your favorite director. Wow! ... Update: Filmmaker David Lowery has pledged for a hat.

*commitments refer to: a 'Like' on Facebook/Instagram or a 'Favorite' on Twitter after I posted a prototype of the hat*

When do I get my hat or other movies products?

Hopefully by December. January at the latest.

------------

Please share with anybody you think would like this type of hat.

Risks and challenges

One big risk is if the hat doesn't look right after I get them delivered. I can see the test image they give you on their website, but it's possible it won't look as good in person. Or the hat will be low quality. Or it won't last as long as I hope. It's also possible the hat won't fit everybody perfectly.
