We've been getting several very similar questions that we thought we should field in one fell swoop. You can cut straight to the chase, below, or watch Charlie and I answer these questions in the video.
1.) What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is the website you are on right now. It facilitates fundraisers for various sorts of projects including independent film. We ourselves (myself [Ryan], Charlie, and Dave) have set our funding goal of $20,000 as well as the term to do so, Feb. 1 - 29th.
2.) How do I pay?
With a credit card, right here on Kickstarter. Amazon actually handles payments, so if you already have an account there the whole thing is super smooth. If you do not have an account with Amazon you will be walked through a few simple steps to create one.
3.) Why is this so urgent???
Because the clock is ticking and time is running very short. This whole effort ends on February 29th at 10pm PST.
4.) What happens if you come up short of the $20k?
We will not see a single dime of what has been pledged so far. All of that money will be refunded and we will be left to try and figure out how to finish the film without money (not a good situation).
