Update #3

THANK YOU EVERYBODY!!!!

Comment

Thank you everybody, it has been so incredible to receive so much support and encouragement. Your generosity and your efforts at getting the word out have made for one of the wildest rides of my life; each day that I thought "Well, that's about it," someone else would give what they could OR, previous donors would INCREASE their pledge! FLABBERGASTING. I couldn't get used to the idea that so many people were willing to help, and I'm still wondering how the project got here from where it was 30 days ago. I will be updating you all on the project as we move forward, and hope to hear from everybody throughout this process, because you are all a part of it and I would love your advice and suggestions as I go about the task of putting this thing together. Thank you all once again and I will be in contact soon.

Sincerely,
Patrick Clark

Update Number 2 - UNIMAGINABLE HEIGHTS

Comment

Dear Kickstarter Backers, Soon to Be Kickstarter Backers, and Never to Be Kickstarter Backers,

      Can you believe it? The Muscovite is currently at $6,431 with 18 days left to go. That is shocking. I wake up every morning to a notice of some new generosity from friends, family and sometimes strangers, and I wonder if even a great film can ever repay the feelings of encouragement and support that $1 brings. I am working hard to bridge the rest of the gap; I've started sending press inquiries to movie and acting blogs to see if editors might mention our project (if anyone has any ideas please let me know!), and I am working to spread the word amongst the people here in Bristol who fund the arts. Thank you all so much for your help.

      On the production side, I've secured the main locations for the 1961 half of the shoot, and am contracting makeup, costume, and set design people through the school. All of which, is very exciting. I can't wait to get this thing off the ground over the Easter Break and I look forward to continuing updates of the film's progress.

     Thank you all once again for all your help,

     Sincerely,

     Patrick Clark

UPDATE NUMBER 1 - WOAH!

Comment

     Thank you so much to all who've backed the Muscovite and shared the page with their friends. We've raised $2,000 in 5 Days AND we were picked as a Kickstarter Staff Pick!

     I am completely floored by the support we've received thus far and will never forget it, but I realize that my work has just begun. Getting the word out to more and more people, relentlessly showing my video to everyone on earth, and justifying all the pledges and support I've received thus far. That's my job for the next 25 days. 

     Thank you all once again and I'll be updating with each new development. Please continue to spread the word to whoever you can and I'm confident we can bridge this gap over the next 25 days!

Sincerely,

Patrick
