Update #9

Share Dust with a Friend and Get a Special Gift!

6 comments

It’s been an amazing two days for Dust, thanks to a surge of generous support from the Reddit community. In the last 48 hours another 150 people have backed the project and we’re 75% funded.

With only 5 days left we need everyone’s help spreading the word on Facebook and Twitter. We’ve just released a “World of Dust” album that includes cover photos and profile pictures. Please share the project with you friends by posting one of our photos or using these pictures to update your profile.

To show our appreciation for helping us spread the word we are giving away a special gift! If you bring a new backer to the project, have them post a comment or send us a message about your referral and we'll send you the Dust Travel Guide. This digital guide will include all of our location scouting pictures from both Japan and Big Sur. There are even a few amazing places that didn’t make it into the film. The guide will give you detailed instructions on how to find each remote location and tips about where to stay. The Dust Travel Guide will be delivered on May 20th.

There are 5 days left, let's get the word out!

      Also, my pal Andreas Gschwari was in turn referring me to this cool project.

      @Jennifer, we really want the Dust Travel Guide to generate new backers so we are only offering the Guide for referrals at this time. We received a message from Georgene that you referred her so we've got you down for the Guide. I think you will really enjoy it!

      @Richard, thanks for letting us know. We've got Tara down for the Dust Travel Guide. We're glad she shared our project with you!

      Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but Tara Brannigan pointed me to your production and I ended up pledging ... so you should send her lots of free stuff.

      And I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished movie!

      Wow, this is really exciting. There's a decent chance of getting there. Also, don't forget that pledges increase sharply at the end too.

      This is a great idea. If we can't find someone for referral would you consider if someone bumped their pledge to a different pledge that they could receive this as well (example from the 30.00 to the 50.00 pledge)? It is just an idea.
