78 backers pledged $1,313 to help bring this project to life.

Goal met and surpassed!

Wow, thanks to all of you we hit our $200 goal in about 12 hours and now we're up to $332 in less than a week.  This will provide some much needed rental equipment and sufficient digital video tape.  We're busy scouting locations, building networks and creating a narrative.  The date of the contest has been published as June 15 - 17.

Thanks again!

      @guly Glad you're excited, but unless you're going to come babysit, you may have to wait. Plus I want it to look professional enough that people will want to do it again.

      can't wait two months, give up some social life and work harder :)

      It went well. Everyone said they had a lot of fun and volunteered to do it again. There were some logistical problems, which were to be expected, and I have to shoot some supplementary video. I expect editing to take 2 months or so.
