LAST 3 DAYS AND LESS THAN 5K TO GO! CHECK OUT OUR GREAT PRESS!

Hello Team!

Well, I'm back from London after an amazing week shooting with Greg at the Olympics!  It was an incredible experience!  I've never gotten so little sleep, worked so hard, and been so thoroughly inspired!  Here's is a photo of Greg and me enjoying a very rare break from shooting while in London.  

Thank you all for your INCREDIBLE support so far during our Kickstarter campaign!  We are so thrilled and touched by your support!  But it's not over yet!  We've still got 3 days left to reach our goal on Kickstarter and about $5,000 still to raise!  You can still make a big difference!  Here are a few ways you can help us reach our goal:

1) FORWARD THIS EMAIL to JUST ONE person and encourage them to become a backer!  Maybe it's a colleague who had Olympic fever!  Maybe it's your high school sports coach!  Maybe it's an enthusiastic neighbor! 

2) Post our Kickstarter link to FACEBOOK! To TWITTER!  Send it to a LISTSERV you're on!  Talk about our film this weekend at a party!

3) Increase your pledge!  If you've got even $5 more you can throw into the Kickstarter kitty, that WILL make a difference! 

We are confident that we'll hit our goal, but we're not there yet.  Anything you can do to help us get there would be amazing!  DIVE IN TODAY!
