Update #7

You made history!

Dear Princess Celestia,

What an amazing group of people Bronies and those who support Bronies are!

Twenty-four days ago we announced our dream of producing a documentary about the phenomenon of “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” and its dedicated fans who live its values in their daily lives. Well, not only have thousands of members of the Brony Community and other members of the public come forward to encourage us, enough of them have shown their generosity that we can make an even better film than we ever imagined! They also helped the project become the 2nd most funded film of all time on Kickstarter.

Thank you for your inspiration and the inspiration we have received, and will continue to receive, from people everywhere.

Your faithful students,

Tara, Lauren, John, Mike, Laurent & the rest of the crew.

      Well this has been a blast. I discovered the show only a couple months ago and it looks like I jumped on the train just in time. I really mean it when I say that you bronies are the most fun I've had in eons and I’m glad I could contribute to this. Who knows what else we can accomplish and how we'll continue to affect the show and others. Thanks again Mike and the rest of you for your patience and hard work. But I am curious... why wasn’t this included in the recent update? http://bronydoc.blogspot.com/ I found it on Equestria Daily today and it made me cheer inside.

      Kickstarter really should start supporting PayPal donations... If you include the PayPal money we become the top funded video on Kickstarter ever by about $3000. I'm still amazed at how much money was raised.

      ...btw, I've been working on an in-depth analysis of the nature of the brony community to help make this documentary as insightful as possible. Where can I submit something like that, once it's done, to make sure it gets seen by Mike, Laurent, and the rest?

      Kudos, hats, and shirts to this community! We've given them over three-fourths as much as a network commission budget. Look forward to a wonderful production, everyone! I'm certain it will be worth it!
