Backers, I'll be in touch very soon about your rewards. Thanks again for your support!
Wow! We never imagined we'd receive so much support from the community! Our backers have been so generous...we're pretty overwhelmed. We raised enough money to fund at least three episodes, and we were just hoping to fund one!
Many, many thanks to all of our backers. We hope you're happy with what you see today.
Please tune in at 11am (CST, 12pm EST) to watch the Derby Little Secrets Pilot right here: http://chicagooutfitrollerderby.com/galleries/derby-little-secrets/
I'll be in touch very soon with all of our backers who chose rewards. Thanks again!
You guys, we made it! We've not only reached our funding goal, but exceeded it! I can't begin to say how much we appreciate all of your pledges, large and small. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
If you're in Chicago, please plan to come and view the live filming of our pilot at Broadcast Bar, 810 N. Clark Street, this Saturday, April 7th, at 11 am.
If you aren't in Chicago, please check back here for a link to the live video feed (our web team is setting it up now--I'll provide the link as soon as it's ready).
In the meantime, please continue to spread the word, and if you haven't already, please pledge a few dollars. The original $750 goes toward filming and promoting the pilot--but every dollar beyond that will go toward the production of the ongoing series. If you're interested in being a sponsor for a show or the whole season, please write to me at marketing AT chicagooutfitrollerderby DOT com. There are a lot of ways to get involved.
What a happy day!
Over and out,
Hey guys, I'm Hero Shima and I'll be one of the co-hosts of the show, with some other fine fine foxy ladies! I am a proud member of the Chicago Outfit Roller Derby League, as well as a medical student at Rush university medical center. Only 1 year left!! (finally.) I also am the lead singer of the band Arcadia Hero. I'm a huge bears fan, have a serious love of dogs, and I"m a huge nerd. Comic books, video games, super heroes, you name it I love it! I think that pretty much about sums it up. I'm super pumped to be a part of the show! Looking forward to hanging out with you guys on Saturday mornings! ;)
