Help us finish strong!

Dear everyone,

As you can see, we have just 13 hours to go in our Kickstarter campaign. We have reached our goal, thanks to everyone’s amazing support – whether through generous donations, spreading the word, or some combination of the two. We are so thrilled and so grateful.

Though we have reached our goal, we would love to keep the momentum going in this last 13 hours of the campaign.

If we are able to surpass our goal by $2500, we will be able to follow up with the numerous people who have contacted us as a result of this Kickstarter campaign, and who are willing to share their stories about experiences with Marie and her film festivals.

If we are able to surpass our goal by $5,000, we will be able to do more of the extensive international research that we will need to truly understand Marie’s history and the root of her more recent ventures.

And finally, as we mentioned in our recent Kickstarter blog post, if we can raise over $1.5 million (a.k.a. the Elevation I-Phone Dock), we are pledging to create a Mystery of Marie I-phone cable. 

If we can surpass $2 million (aka Double Fine Adventure), it would be our pleasure to create the Mystery of Marie video game. (In addition to the documentary, of course!)


But seriously, if you are reading this and haven’t donated, please consider doing so in these final hours. And if you have donated, write that final tweet or post one last time on facebook. The sky’s the limit, and the more funds we can raise, the closer we will get to solving this mystery.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Martha & Dan
