      What an accomplishment. No one knows the trials, hurdles and tenacity it takes to complete a campaign like this. This is a ton of money to raise on KS - so well done! The crowd has spoken and you get to make your film! Now the real hurdles begin. :) The crowd is with you! All the best,

      Martin is one of my best friends so I know him well. His love for craft on both sides of the camera has always been an inspiration. That said, I've never seen him go after something with such dogged determination. The Dunes is a story from his heart, and that's why it deserves to be shared with the world. I fully believe in his devotion to this picture and it's subsequent success. Keep donating. Let's finish this picture and keep making films that matter. Much love mate.

      I am immensely proud of my cousin Martin Copping for all his achievements to date, but this latest project is so important and heartfelt that it totally deserves to succeed. If anyone reading this can make a pledge, no matter how much, I urge you to do so, please. Thank you.

      This looks great, Marty. Good on you! I am always so happy to support my friends' artistic endeavours. The trailer looks amazing (and I hope the finished film passes the Beschdel test!). Your mum would be so proud. Can't wait to see it... Definitely should bring it to Zurich Film Festival I reckon!! :) :) Claire x

      I loved Tim Phillipps in Once Upon a Time as Prince Thomas. I'm looking forward to seeing his play a bad guy in this movie
