We Made It - Thanks to You!

It's been a roller-coaster 32 days, but we finally made it past our goal in the final few hours.  A huge thank you to everyone who gave us so much support!

We've gone live with a new website where you can follow along as we wrap up production over the next few months and move through post-production in the latter half of 2013.  Please visit us here: http://thegreengirlmovie.com/

If you're joining us for the first time after the Kickstarter campaign has ended but you'd still like to help us make this film the best it can possibly be, you'll find a link at http://thegreengirlmovie.com/ where you can offer your help.

Again, thank you to everyone who's shown so much interest in making sure that Susan's story gets told!

And The Winner Is...Susan Oliver (Co-Winner of the 1970 Powder Puff Derby coast-to-coast air race, along with pilot Margaret Mead)

Risks and challenges

The major challenge facing this project is a tight budget and its effect on completing the post-production process.

While this could cause a ripple effect in the delivery timeline, based upon my past film projects, I have the necessary connections and contacts, plus a proven track record, to once again meet these familiar challenges creatively, effectively and on-schedule without compromising the quality of the finished product.

I feel a strong sense of responsibility to Susan Oliver, as well as to her friends, family and loved ones. I couldn't possibly allow this project to stall in post-production.

Nothing will prevent The Green Girl from being completed and released.
