Dear Backers,

We did it! Thank you, thank you!

Thanks to each and every one of you, we have officially made our goal, and our Kickstarter campaign has come to a successful close! This whole month we have been so inspired by you all--old friends, new friends, family members, teachers, and supporters we might not know personally. With your support, interest, and energy, we raised $17,394 and we are that much closer to bringing La Ciega to life.

So, what's next? 

With the funds from the Kickstarter, we can now enter our pre-production phase, which will entail casting our actors, hiring our crew, nailing down location permits, sets, prop, equipments, etc! This very exciting and intensive next step would not be possible without the financial backing we received from our backers. Come springtime, we will begin production and will have our four-day shoot outside of Los Angeles! In the summer of 2018 we'll be entering the film into festivals. Once the film has made it through the festival circuit we’ll be able to personally share the film with all of you (certain backers will get early access to a private link!) In the meantime, we’ll make sure to keep you updated so you’ll have behind the scenes access every step of the way as we make this film a reality!

And the vision world set? 

Not to worry--we haven't given up! In the next few weeks we will continue fundraising (outside of Kickstarter) to make our dream set a reality! So your stretch goal contributions will still be put toward building that set.

Stay tuned for updates about pre-production and production, and follow us on on Instagram and Twitter to keep up on the latest breaking news from the La Ciega Team. And you can all look forward to your rewards, which will be arriving around March.

If you have any questions or want to know how you can stay involved with the La Ciega Team and project, please email us

We really cannot thank you enough for helping bring this project into the world!! We can't wait to get to work and to share it with you soon! 

With so much love and profound gratitude,
Susannah Greenblatt, Raphael Linden, and the whole La Ciega Team
