Update #3 From The Freda Kelly Team

Posted by Tripod Media (Creator)

To our fabulous backers!  We've just ended Week Two of our Kickstarter campaign and we're thrilled that 144 of you have pledged $15,249 to 'Good Ol' Freda!'   Thank you from all of us to all of're are the best...and due to you we have now raised 30% of our goal of $50,000!  We're  very excited but we know we have to keep our nose to the grindstone for the next three weeks.  We'd greatly appreciate it if you could help us get the word out to everyone who loves The Beatles and encourage them to pledge a donation now!

Dear Beatles Fans, Film Lovers, Friends and Family,

I want to tell you about a very special film and ask your help to spread the word all over the world!  I’d like to see all your names listed on the “Backers” page of this website as donors to make this film happen.  I wouldn’t ask you all to do this if I hadn’t given a little something too.  You can donate as little as $1...but if 7,266 fans gave just $5, the goal of making this movie a reality would be accomplished.  If you want to give $25, then you will get a complimentary copy of the DVD when it’s done!  Just consider it a pre-order.  


GOOD OL' FREDA is a documentary film about the untold story of Freda Kelly, The Beatles' trusted secretary and friend for over a decade from 1962-1972. The movie's title comes from the line The Beatles shouted out to Freda on their legendary 1963 Christmas record. The filmmakers are currently trying to raise the funds to produce the film on Kickstarter, a website where you become a backer of the film by making a donation & then get a REWARD in return (signed DVDs, photos of Freda with the Beatles, even lunch or a personal tour of Liverpool with Freda).

Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing web based campaign, so the goal of $50,000 must be fulfilled by 11-11-11 or the filmmakers get NOTHING. It's been 50 years (!) since Freda Kelly 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 preserve Freda's stories forever! 

Thank you from all the members of the Freda Kelly Team!
