      Hi all! Do please let us all know what we can do over the coming months to help. I'm afraid that I don't have a massive social media presence, but I do have access to an insane amount of computing power if you need help on that front...

      Fantastic news! Proud to be a supporter and can't wait to see the film (wearing my leather jacket, of course).

      Great news - a really worthwhile project. Well done all!

      Yay! Thrilled that this happened and proud to be backer #68. Sadly, I've never seen the Chills play live, but I've been a fan since I picked up, by pure chance, the Rolling Moon 7". I just thought the sleeve looked cool. And now, after so many years and so much smile-inducing music, the definitive film on Martin and the band. I'm glad I could be a infinitesimal spec in the ongoing story of the Chills. Thank you to the team and everyone that Kickstarted.

      Did you get my message about Martin's 'Phillipps' ancestry?

      I'm really glad to have donated, and looking forward to the film. I know it will take time but I can wait. I've seen Martin and the Chills many times in NY and NJ and I hope he knows we love him and appreciate him.

      Here's a video of a drawing I did while listening to The Great Escape...

      Cant wait for Doco. Im happy ti support this even though its not much but as you say every dollar counts! Martin is a legend, very underated and The Chills deserve wayyyyyyyyyyyy more accolades and praise than they have. Lets hope this doco makes the world see the gold we have here in Dunners x

      A fantastic project about a fantastic band. Martin is NZ's Brian Wilson, with all the accompanying quirks - I was so happy to hear the new album recently, and am extremely happy that this doco is being made!

      Yay for Julia and the team, this doco needs to be made so I'm glad to support it!

      I've been listening to The Chills for over a quarter-century. Martin's music has a been a source of joy in good times and solace in hard times. Good luck making this documentary soar!

    15. Mark Trehus on September 23, 2017

      Martin’s music has left its mark on me in an indelible way that puts him way, way up there in my booklet. I certainly do hope that the campaign reaches its goal! Spread the word, people!

    16. Robert Lawlor on September 21, 2017

      Delighted to support the Documentary! All the very best of luck to you!
