Correction to previous Update - Sorry!
Some backers were having issues with the embedded links in the previous update we sent out. We worked out the problems with Kickstarter, and here is the corrected blurb below.
Very sorry for any inconvenience if you already forwarded it out!! And thanks again for helping us spread the word.
GOOD OL' FREDA
GOOD OL' FREDA is a documentary film about the untold story of Freda
Kelly, The Beatles' trusted secretary and friend throughout their rise
to fame. The movie's title comes from the line The Beatles shouted out
to her on their legendary 1963 Christmas record. The filmmakers are currently
trying to raise the funds to make the film on Kickstarter, a website
where you can make a donation to a film and get a reward in return
(signed DVDs, photos of Freda with the Beatles, even lunch or a personal
tour of Liverpool w/ Freda!) They are trying to raise $50,000 by
11-11-11. Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing website, so if they don't raise the full $50,000 they get nothing! Please check out http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215635909/good-ol-freda
to read more about it and
support this very worthwhile film. There's a great video you can watch of
Freda explaining what the film will be about. It's been 50 years (!)
since Freda began her work for the Fab Four and this movie will be the
first time she's sharing her memories, so let's make this Kickstarter campaign go viral and help these filmmakers
get it completed and preserve Freda's stories forever!
