Women Center Stage, Portland gathering, and a new reward
This update will include several cool things, so I'm going to use (dunh, dunh, dunh...) headings!
Women Center Stage
We are so honored and pleased to share with you that Flat Track Around the World has been included in Kickstarter's Women Center Stage initiative. Women Center Stage is committed to supporting and promoting artistic work by and about women and had this to say about our film:
"We don't know a lot about derby, but this film could certainly teach us. Women's empowerment through contact sports. We like."
We like, too! Check out the page here: Women's Center Stage.
New Reward for $125 Pledges
We're adding an awesome new reward for supporters pledging at the $125 level. In addition to all the cool stuff these supporters will already receive, we are adding a personalized photo from Mexico! These supporters can send us a message of their choosing (within reason, of course) and we will take a nifty photo with the message somewhere in Mexico. We might strike a pose. We might find a wacky place to put it. Or we might create a scene that captures something special. In any case, the photo will be unique and personal to each backer.
Meet the Filmmakers
If you're in the Portland area this Friday, April 20th, please join Juvie and Cynthia at one of the awesomest events of the year: The Guns 'N' Rollers' Annual Party!!
In addition to mingling with all the hard-rockin' ladies of Juvie's team, the Guns 'N' Rollers, there will be LIVE karaoke, a free photo booth, raffles, and special GNR-themed drinks. There's no cover, so please drop by and chat us up about the project, sing some power ballads, and get to know your local derby community. Yes, Juvie will be singing karaoke. And yes, we will be getting that on film!
Hope to see you at Blitz Ladd (2239 SE 11th Ave., Portland) this Friday at 9 p.m! For more information about the party, check out the GNR FB page: https://www.facebook.com/events/326413947422857/
As always, we sincerely appreciate your support. And thank you for continuing to help us get the word out about our project!
Juvie, Cynthia & Alison
