Hero Exec Producer Glenn, one of our early supporters, just helped us cross the $50,000 mark. In the words of my mentor, Homer Simpson: "Woo-Hoo!"
This is the point where we try to encourage potential backers to still donate. This is a very small amount of money with which to make a movie and every bit more counts and will make the movie look better, sound better, and frankly have more awesome! So if you were planning to back, there's no reason not to.
In addition to raising this money and getting this movie off the ground, I've spent the last few months on a low-carb diet. I intend to celebrate this evening by cheating for the night and eating some ice cream.
Thank you to everyone who made this possible. I need to spend a few hours to write down the huge list of people, it's so long. A huge special thanks to every backer and everyone who championed us (Jason and Horace in particular went above and beyond to garner media attention). Expect a very long list of thanks very soon.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. We did it.
Expect a more detailed update from me as soon as I can stop jumping up and down shouting in joy.
