Kickstarter uses an all or nothing policy.

We have until January 8th to raise $5,500... All pledges/donations are processed through your Amazon account, but your card is not charged until we have reached our $5,500 goal. So even if we raise $5,499 dollars, unless we get that last dollar (making it $5,500) by January the 8th, we won't receive any of the donations, hence the "all or nothing."

More about the project: Speak Low.

A little more than one-third of the film takes place south of the border. When I initially wrote the script I knew that financially I could not shoot in Mexico, so with Dave's photo-journalism experience in Mexico, we set out to "recreate" this portion of the film here in the states. Unfortunately, there are certain elements of Mexican culture that just don't exist in the United States.
That is where Kickstarter.com comes in.

How does this “Kickstarter” thing work?

Kickstarter.com is a crowd/social-funding platform that helps artists raise money through small contributions. Instead of a using a traditional investment model, all contributions, no matter how small, are rewarded with a unique gift. (The corresponding rewards for the donations are located to the right of this message---->)

Where are we filming?

We will be filming in Mexico city for five days, and possibly three days in the state of Chiapas. Chiapas, as a possible shooting location, is still up in the air due to potential logistical/travel complications- basically it's a really, really, long bus ride from Mexico City for four individuals with 200 pounds of camera equipment.

We Love you, Happy Holidays!!! -Cast and Crew of "Speak Low"
