We Did It!

Posted by Angeline Gragasin (Creator)

To Our Backers:

Some of you I know personally--met in school, at work, online, or through a friend. Some of you I've known for years, some for months, some for just a few weeks. Many of you are friends and family of my collaborators. 

But MOST of you are total strangers who found your way to this campaign via Vimeo and Twitter. When I launched this campaign a month ago, I knew that I couldn't rely exclusively on friends and family to support this project. But I didn't know who else was out there. It turns out there is such a thing as the "Good People of The Internet." Those people are you! I hope to meet each and every one of you in the coming days, weeks, months, years; to shake your hands, to give my personal heartfelt thanks to my fellow Men and Women of The Future. Your presence is felt and known!

To friends and strangers alike: your support means the world to me, and I cannot even begin to express the impact a gesture as simple and straightforward as the clicking of a big green button will have on my many collaborators, whose participation was invaluable to the creation of this project. I want you all to know you have contributed more than just money, to more than just me. 

On behalf of the 20 young artists who helped create The Animals, I thank you!

      The premise of this sounds fascinating! ... Urm, I'll have to pay my pledge on Tuesday. Ran out of money in the bank before the payment came due. Sorry. *hangs head in shame*
