A documentary about Susan Oliver: prolific actress, original member of the AFI Directing Workshop for Women, record-setting aviator.


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 Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

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.

FAQ

  • By joining Kickstarter, all you're giving them is your email address, and in my experience as a member over the past year, you will NEVER get spam or any kind of unwanted mail. If you notice, a lot of people create their profiles with a PSEUDONYM, which is apparently acceptable as long as your email address is real.

    And by the way, YOU'RE NOT GIVING KICKSTARTER ANY FINANCIAL INFORMATION! The payments are processed through Amazon.com, so it's exactly the same as if you were buying a book on Amazon.

    With one exception: AMAZON WILL NOT EVEN CHARGE YOU UNLESS WE MEET OUR FUNDING GOAL ON MARCH 2.

  • You don't have to select an award corresponding to the level at which you pledge! If the awards at that level are all sold out (i.e. the photographs), you are still eligible for (and can select) a lower award level while donating a higher dollar amount.

    Last updated:
  • Yes! Just go in through the blue Manage Your Pledge button (at the top of the page, on the right) and you can increase your pledge (making us very happy!).

    Last updated:
  • I don't believe that Kickstarter is simply a merchant portal through which I can pre-sell copies of the film. It's an online community where backers actually play an important role in making projects happen. Obviously $45 is more than the DVD will cost once the movie is completed, but if you become a backer, you'll always know that you were a big part of the reason this project was successfully completed.

    In a very real sense, as a backer you will become a part of this film, and I believe that's worth a lot more than just a DVD (or, for that matter, a digital download).

    Last updated:
  • It's not! You can get it with a minimum $30 pledge.

    Unfortunately, a few people chose it when it was only available for a higher pledge (earlier in the campaign), so we can't delete the listing. It's still listed (as SOLD OUT) at the higher level.

    But if you look at the $30 level, it's there (and we'll print as many as we need - no running out!).
