90 Seconds of Life

For our final Kickstarter video update, we simply wanted to show you ninety seconds of Jay Lake's life.  This is the moment in which our documentary was forever changed.

We want to thank you all for the tremendous success of this campaign.  Your generous support will allow us to finish this film.

We were not able to make all of our stretch goal, but every dollar really is making a difference.  We already have enough over our basic goal to film the lab doing the whole genome sequencing on Jay's tumors.  With a few more dollars, we will be able to film Jay's out-of-state visit for a second opinion later this month.

If you could share a word on the campaign during this last 72 hours, we would appreciate it.  You may wish to point out that a $60 pledge (or more) gets one a copy of the film; the extended Director's commentary version (with additional narration by Jay Lake); and the behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of Lakeside.

Here is our final Kickstarter clip.

      Wow. That was...exquisitely uncomfortable. I ache for Jay, and for B, and for everyone who loves them.
