Update #3

We've made it!

5 comments

Dear Supporters - 

We've made it!!! Almost 700 people have said that they believe in this story.

It's hard to describe how grateful we feel for everyone's support. To those who gave $1.00 to $500, we are truly humbled. We have a lot of work to do to finish the film but your support will go such a long way to making this dream a reality.

The campaign will be open until Wednesday March 14 at 6pm. And although we reached our initial goal sooner than expected, every little bit counts. Our total budget is several times larger than this milestone. So if you're visiting us for the first time or taking a second look, know that any support will truly help. As with the other rewards, a digital download of the finished film is still available for a $25 pledge.

Louis thought we were crazy when we first told him about this campaign. Now he can't stop singing Sam Cooke's "Change is Gonna Come." As a thank you, we're releasing this short teaser of Louis singing a different song, one that President Obama seems to have mastered too.
