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!

CHECK OUT OUR GREAT PRESS
We've gotten so much great press during our Kickstarter campaign.  The Daily News called it "an American comeback story". The AV Club called our film "a worthwhile project needing attention". Death+Taxes Magazine predicted our film will "capture our imagination and impact our cultural conversation”. OutSports.com wrote the film is an “exciting new chapter to [Greg Louganis’s] life-story”. Passport Magazine offered the “film as an opportunity to reintroduce a true pioneer to the American public”. ScreenDaily wrote the film will “tell his unique story and explore his enduring legacy”. Towleroad encouraged their readers to “check out the excellent trailer”!

Thank you for all of your support.  Here's to the homestretch!

Best,

Cheryl Furjanic (Director)
