Update #5

A Grateful Director

1 comment

Hey Everyone,

I just wanted to say from the bottom of my heart thank you.  Ryan and I began this project knowing that it would be an ambitious feat, but truthfully, we had no idea.  It’s your donations that are seeing us through these last couple weeks of shooting and enabling us to get a sharp and professional product out of the post process. 

In a nutshell, we have a few more shots to get in the office, and the exciting climax that is act 3, and then it’s off to LA for a day of shooting with some surprising cameos.

Please continue to send us your good vibes as we close out the home stretch, and be sure to check out the website - blingofblings.com – and the facebook group facebook.com/jesushheist – for photos, info, all the good stuff.

And again, even though I find myself unable to fully express my gratitude, I truly thank you for believing in me, believing in our project, and the contribution you made.  None of you are rich, but even in these rough times you’ve made a sacrifice to help us chase our dreams.  It means everything to me.

Peace,

Benton

VIDEO - THANKS FROM JESUS H. HEIST!

Comment

Noble and Valiant Kickstarters,

As we near the end of our fundraising (and surpass another milestone far beyond our goal), we wanted to thank you all again with another ridiculous video.  Please continue to visit our website when our time on Kickstarter ends, and be sure to become a Facebook fan.

We never could have anticipated raising this much money, so the VERY least we could do is enlist the star of our film, Will Storie, to shoot you a little message.  Be sure to stay connected to us on Facebook and at our website.  Thanks, and enjoy!

A New Site...Another 'Thank You'

Comment

Hey Kickstarters!

Thank you to all our new supporters for the donations.  To see our total go up far beyond our original goal is not only humbling, but also encouraging.  Your support definitely keeps us going, and we look forward to making this movie awesome thanks to your donations and help sharing the link.

So, with that said, we've launched a new website for Jesus H. Heist...currently still in progress, but please feel free to check it out and send us your feedback and comments.  You can currently check out some cast biographies, see stills from some of our shoots in New York City, and keep tabs on our Kickstarter progress thanks to a handy Widget located on the right hand part of your screen.  Here's the website:

Catchy, right?  Hopefully it's easy to remember AND easy to share.  Enjoy!  And again, any comments, questions or instructions would be greatly appreciated.

With 10 days left to raise funds, we are excited to see what our final total will bePlease continue being as awesome as you have been for 10 more days and send out our Kickstarter link to anyone you think would want to donate, share it themselves, or just watch our ridiculous video.

And I personally cannot wait to add all of your names to our final credits.  It will definitely be rewarding to see the amount of help you've provided materialized up on the big screen.  Thanks again, and CHECK OUT OUR SITE!!

Update #2

Moving Along...

Comment

Hey Kickstarters,

Continued thanks for supporting the film and sending out those links.  Fundraising levels have come down a bit since our incredible start, but we've still managed to raise an additional $100.00 to make this film even better.

We recently had two shoots this weekend (will post pictures soon) and got some very important shots in the can.  We will soon be shooting very intensive scenes, including an action scene and finishing an important montage in coming days, and will have a higher quality still camera to take BTS photos of our work, so stay tuned for that.

We will also have a message from some of our cast coming up as well, and will post that video as an update.  So please watch out for that.

If you haven't added us on Facebook, do so here (www.facebook.com/jesushheist) and remember to continue to blast out our Kickstarter link to anyone you feel would like to be a part of this project.

Furthermore, do you have any questions for Benton or I regarding the film and your investment?  Please post a comment and we'll get back to you ASAP.

Stay tuned!

Ryan

WOW!

UPDATE #1

So the last thing we thought our first update would be about is the fact that we had already raised our goal.  Completely unreal.  You all are awesome.

In 2 short days (really a day and a half) you have come through for us big time.  Raising $1,000 this quickly is a huge surprise to everyone working on Jesus H. Heist.  We are sincerely thankful for every, single penny you all have put towards the project.  Thank you all.

So we now find ourselves with 28 more days of fund raising having already accomplished our goal.  The $1,000 is incredible, really.  So why not aim to try to raise more?  All the money goes directly to the movie, so the more we all raise, the better it will be.  Those of you who have contributed have secured your involvement in this film.  It's now your film too.  Let's make it as great as it can be.

So continue being awesome and sharing our Kickstarter page.  And check back here for updates as we move through these next 28 days.  And be sure to visit and like our Facebook page as well by searching 'Jesus H. Heist'.

And check out some photos from a couple of our many shoots over the past few weeks below.

Thanks again!
