Update #2

Goal Reached and Physical GIF at Kickstarter Film Festival

Comment

We're excited to announce that, thanks to you, Physical GIF has already reached its funding goal just 36 hours after launch! You've already pledged more that $4,000 with more pledges still coming in. This means that you will all definitely be getting your Physical GIFs after the project deadline passes in August. And hopefully lots more people will as well. Thanks for all your support!

Another exciting piece of news: Kickstarter has asked us to present Physical GIF at the Second Annual Kickstarter Film Festival this Saturday:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kickstarterfilmfest/the-second-annual-kickstarter-film-festival

The Festival includes screenings of more that 16 film and video projects funded on Kickstarter as well as booths with work from current and recent non-film projects. We'll be showing off Physical GIF in a booth so attendees can play with GIFs and see the effect in person. We'll also have some samples of a test version of our laser-cut logo (the reward for the $5 pledge level) to pass out. If you're coming to the fest definitely stop by and say hello. If you're not we'll take some pictures and report back.
