75k And Going Strong -- Thanks To You!

We cannot describe how excited we were when we woke up today and saw that WE REACHED OUR KICKSTARTER GOAL -- and with 4 days left! We cannot thank you enough for making this happen, and we're looking forward to officially celebrating with you in a few days.

The support keeps coming in, and we are now driving beyond 75k to our "stretch goal" of at least 100k. There's much more work to be done than the 75k will cover, and hitting our stretch goal will make it possible for us to have a professional soundtrack made, hire an animator for the courtroom scenes we could not film, and hire a bigger editing team.

As our Kickstarter approaches the finish line, we ask that you PLEASE SHARE our campaign with others via Facebook, Twitter, email, at work, at parties, and everywhere you can. Our 5 Day Challenge has been such a success, and for the rest of today our anonymous donor will match every dollar that we raise.

We're ready to make these last few days the best ones yet! 

Thank you again for all of your help and encouragement. 

Chris, Penny, Frazer, Rosadel, and Julia

P.S. On Friday we tried out a new video-making app called Magisto and used it to remix our campaign video, which you can watch here. And yesterday, the wonderful multi-media animal website Our Hen House posted their new podcast episode with Chris and Penny -- thank you Jasmin and Mariann for chatting with us!

      I can't tell you how relieved I am to see you passed the funding goal. Wise is a hero of mine for many reasons, and I'm not talking about his animal alone. His explanations of law in Rattling the Cage are among the clearest I've seen and allowed me to understand what I didn't quite see clearly before.
