ROXY & EVERYWHERE! (Roxy benefit screenings near you & more.)
Happy Thursday. We have just over one week to go, lots to accomplish, and lots of momentum! Oh, and lots of exclusive unreleased Vault clips just for backers, between now and next Friday, which I cannot wait to share!
First, a couple notes.
The Movie Will Still Get Made.
Yesterday, I talked about a super-simple model for how to use the funds we raise here on Kickstarter. Today, I thought I'd give you an even easier way to understand it:
Now, we've got more interesting stuff to talk about today, but before we move on, I want to make sure this is super clear:
After yesterday’s update, I got a handful of letters from people who thought we were saying that the movie might not get finished anymore, or that they might not get all of the pledge rewards we’ve promised. I want to make sure you understand:
Even if we don’t fund the entire movie on Kickstarter, it will still be finished and released, and you will get all of the rewards you’ve pledged for.
We'll raise the rest of the financing for the movie after the Kickstarter – just like I did on my last film, Deep Web – and sure, it will take longer than if we'd raised all of the funds here, but the movie will get made, no matter what! And when it does, I'm look forward to meeting some of you at the premiere!
Now, on to the fun stuff...

I'm over the moon that so many fans in so many time zones are coming together to celebrate Zappa. If you're in one of those cities, round up some friends and get yourself to the party. For many of them, I'll see you there (via Skype) — Roxy by proxy!
The Final Countdown...
And Today's Countdown Clip!
What did you think of that exclusive "Tittles and Beer" clip yesterday?? I have another amazing thing coming your way again this afternoon, so KEEP AN EYE OUT!
If you're not a backer yet, join the Kickstarter right now – pledge at any reward level! – and get rare and never-released Zappa clips straight from the Vault to your inbox daily between now and the LAST DAY - next Friday, April 8!
I've been watching this stuff with Joe Travers and getting ready to send it to you, and I feel like the luckiest Zappa fan alive. Excited that I get to bring you all with me!
And, GO SEE ROXY!
