I created a detailed budget spreadsheet long before launching this campaign.
To complete this project it will cost approximately $8,000. I made the Bees in Italy goal intentionally lower, so that I could secure reaching *part of* the funds.
Now that I have reached the goal, it is still really important to spread the word, get people involved, and build a community.
Extra money will be used towards shooting more film, and for making/shipping the rewards.
Also, if we hit $8,000 it will help fund a light projector that I can use to display the photographs on public walls and spaces. (Traveling art shows anyone??)
In other words: every dollar still counts and will be stretched as far as possible.
