Last night, I encouraged Logan fans to keep an eye on this morning's Backer Updates for details about an additional reward option we'll be adding today at 1 pm EST. I'll elaborate, but first I thought you might want to hear the basics from Jason himself.
I'm just glad he was willing to record this video of his own free will. It was either this, or sending out ransom photos showing Jason tied to a chair in the basement until we break the 87,143 backer record.
I'm kidding, of course. Mostly.
Jason's not kidding, though. At 1 pm EST, we'll be adding a limited number of rewards that I think of as The Logan Lover's Package, which gets you all of the normal perks of pledging $100, plus a limited edition, signed headshot from Jason with a personalized message just for you. Or, if you prefer, for the Logan fan of your choice. You'll get to let Jason know if you've got any specific requests before he starts writing.
And speaking of writing, this script isn't going to revise itself. Back to work for me.
Don't forget to check the Kickstarter page promptly at 1:00 pm EST, when we'll add both the Jason and Comic Con reward options.
For backers only. If you're a backer of this project, please log in to read this post.
I only planned on doing one update today, but I'm too excited to wait.
A few hours ago, your efforts helped us reach a secret goal I've been fixating on since our Kickstarter campaign launched: a breathtaking $5 million raised in support of this movie. And we've still got more than 48 hours left to go. Plus, within about 10 seconds of meeting that goal, we also passed 77,000 backers, which means we now need less than 10,000 backers to break our final record.
That's less than 200 backers an hour. We can totally do that, right?
I'll have another update for you later this evening with the details I promised about ComicCon, but right now I wanted to do something for all of you, to express the unending gratitude we're all feeling right now. So, to celebrate today's milestones, I wanted to announce two more free rewards we're adding to thank our backers.
(That's right, I said it: free. These won't cost you an extra cent.)
BONUS REWARD #1: We'll never be able to fully express our gratitude for your support, but that doesn't mean we can't try. So, I'm thrilled to announce that every single backer who supports this Kickstarter will be thanked by name on the official Veronica Mars movie website. (Unless, of course, you prefer otherwise. Your choice. If you're bashful, I get it.)
BONUS REWARD #2: Now that we added a $1 pledge level, we want to make sure our $10 backers don't feel under-appreciated, so I'm also excited to tell you that all backers at $10 and up will also receive an exclusive, limited edition set of Veronica Mars stickers. We're still finishing up the designs, but here's what we have in mind at the moment:
I know It's not a pony, but we really wanted to do something extra to show our gratitude for all of your support in making this movie happen.
Okay. Deep breath. We've still got another 50+ hours to go, and I'm feeling good. I'm going back to work on the script, but I'll have another update for you in a few hours with the promised details about San Diego Comic Con.
Thanks for everything you do.
Your Biggest Fan,
