Thank you, thank you, thank you!

You guys made this happen! We are forever grateful. We hit 142% of our goal in the end. Together we are going to make one helluva movie! Have a FANTASTIC weekend everybody! And please don't forget to send us your name, address, email info. Will send surveys on Monday, but need all for updates from set. Again, thank you! Susan, Suzanne, Susan & Caren

Yikes!!!!

90 minutes to go! Thanks everyone. Have a fantastic weekend and again, thank you! We're makin' a movie!!!!!!

WE MADE IT! THANK YOU!

HOME STRETCH!

Okay peeps...here is the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT! THANKS to ALL of you, our friends, family, and new friends who are fans of Caren's fabulous book, we have indeed reached our initial goal on KICKSTARTER. CONGRATULATIONS to EVERYONE! Your support made it happen!!! We can't wait to make the movie.

That said, our Kickstarter campaign is still very much alive until Friday night, and we are still actively raising funds. Every dime we raise will go toward production, and each contribution will help us make a bigger, better movie. At this budget level, literally every dime makes a difference. So please help us continue to spread the word...to see if we can reach our "stretch goal", as Kickstarter calls it, of $85,000.00. 

But first, give yourselves a hug from four very, very, very grateful women who feel humbled by this entire experience.

THANK YOU!!!

Thanks Kate!

Thanks Kate Farwell, for supporting your mom, and our film, and all things Carrie!

Hi all,

Here's me...in an interview...about the movie.  Yikes!  Always weird seeing a picture of yourself online (I like the other side of the camera much better!)

We're in the home stretch but crawling toward the goal now.  I'm hoping everyone will share this article (which has a link to Kickstarter) so that we can build support not only for the movie, but for the current plight of women in film.  We're only one industry (though gender inequality is rampant), and entertainment isn't exactly a human rights issue, but Suzanne, Susan and I are working tirelessly to make a difference.  We have to start somewhere, right?  One film at a time!

Okay...$9500.00 to go.  $9583 to be exact.  In 5 days.  We've come too far to stop now!  Please share us with your friends and family.

Thanks everyone.  Have a good week!

Susan (J)
