The Saturday mission

Posted by Sara Nodjoumi & Till Schauder (Creator)

To the most awesome, unrelenting and inspiring group of backers a film project could dream of:

From the bottom of our hearts – THANK YOU!

What an absolutely amazing journey. We cracked 75K in the wee hours of the night! How exciting to wake up to this incredible news!!

We have 54 hours to go before our campaign ends. We are currently at 593 backers. Can we double our backers before Monday? Can we hit the magic number - 100K?

With all hands on deck we can do this!

If ALL of our 593 backers inspire one person to back THE IRAN JOB on Kickstarter, we will have a chance.

What do you say? Are you up for a Special Saturday mission: Inspire one backer to pledge at any level. (See below for press that you can share.)

We also just learned that a very cool German basketball website featured The Iran Job - They took it upon themselves to translate the film's synopsis, added the trailer as well as the recent CNN broadcast  to their site and now they're planning a live-stream Intv with us during a professional German basketball game tomorrow night! - It's this type of DIY go-getter mentality that's going to get us to 100K!! Check out their site -- those of you who speak German will get a kick out of it:

Thank you again for your incredible support, for sharing this with your networks and for giving THE IRAN JOB the opportunity to reach a world wide audience.

Much Love & Gratitude,

Sara & Till
