Update #3

We Hit The Jackpot!!!

Comment

In case you haven't already heard the great news - last night we passed our $20,000 fundraising goal - which means Jackpot is going to get funded and we're going to make this movie!!!!! First things first:

THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!!

I could not have done this without you, your support and encouragement and donations, of course - big or small, everything added up and I can't possibly thank you enough. After years of walking around frustrated because making a movie the way I want costs monies I've never had, I finally feel like there's a way to do what I want to do. And I thank you all for the great gift you've given me to have a chance to make my work and make a difference. I won't let you down, I'm going to make a terrific movie. 

We have three days left before the fundraising period closes on Thursday morning at 9:21AM, so if you know anyone who'd still like to grab a tote or pick up an amazing piece by one of our artists, please keep sharing the Kickstarter link. We already are starting to see the typical movie thing happen where new expenses start to rise, so anything extra we can raise before we end helps pad that a lot, and make up for the cut that Kickstarter itself takes from the final tally.

We're going to try and put together a celebration party in NYC this week with some special giveaways and treats, but I'll email you about that later. I'd love to see all of you that I know and meet those of you I don't! 

Thanks again!!!! I'm thrilled, and I hope to see you at the premiere!
