It's been an incredible 24 hours!
I'll never forget what you did for me yesterday.
I gave myself a month to raise $5,000, but you got me there in 8 hours! That speed caught the attention of Kickstarter Staff, and the film remained Popular overnight—surpassing $7,000 in the first 24 hours! But more important than the money is the audience we've built for the film: over 300 amazing people so far, who've invested in this film and will see their names in the credits!
I was in the car yesterday, with my friend Matt Shivers, when we found out the project reached 100%. Matt shot this video:
Stretch Goal: $10,000 = Si Racha, Thailand
I knew from the start that $5,000 would make most of this film possible. But that budget limits me to within-the-U.S. travel. Sriracha hot sauce actually originates in Si Racha, Thailand, and it's been my dream to take my audience on a journey to Thailand to fully understand the history and culture behind this flavor.
I think we can do that. If we reach $10,000 soon, I can start planning the travel!
I hope you can see how your support is directly impacting the scope of this film!
But don't feel like you have to pledge more money. Just spread the word! I'd rather have more people screen the film in September, than bigger pledges. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
