Update #19

Top 10 Film Musicals - #9

Comment

9 days left in our campaign. I wanted to share with you my Top 10 Film Musicals -- listing one per day so that #1 will be listed on our last day (April 18th).

If we don't reach $30K by that date WE DO NOT RECEIVE ANY OF THE PLEDGES.

A tremendous thanks to our latest backers who have all helped us gain incredible momentum as we come to our last days. We are in a great position at 73% funded with only $8093 left to raise. Thank you thank you thank you as it is clear that every donation (big or small) matters and is HUGE.

You are all amazing for being so giving and supportive throughout this entire process. I truly appreciate everything you have done to help get the word out there.

Update #18

Top 10 Film Musicals

Comment

As we count down our last 10 days of our campaign, I wanted to share with you my Top 10 Film Musicals -- listing one per day so that #1 will be listed on our last day (April 18th).

A tremendous thanks to our new backers who have joined us these past few days and showed me such generous support.

Thank you to all our 140 backers and counting. We are 56% funded with just a little over $13K to go. My hopes are strong that we can make it because of what you have done.

Update #17

Our Radio Appearance

Comment

This past weekend Christina Rose (who plays Evey in the film) and myself flew in to Los Angeles and appeared on LA TALK RADIO's FILM COURAGE (hosted by David Branin and Karen Worden).

The interview covered many topics from our musical campaign to making a career out of acting and filmmaking. Both Christina and I had a blast and wish for you to listen about why we are so passionate about our musical project.

Listen to the show here: http://filmcourage.podbean.com/2010/04/05/filmmaker-gary-king-actress-christina-rose-on-la-talk-radios-film-courage-ep-52/

We have just 11 days to promote this fundraising campaign!! We are so close with 56% funding that we know we can make it with your help. Please continue to spread the word. You are part of this journey and we wish to share this success story with you should we reach the goal.

Please share this link with everyone you know: http://kck.st/8Xr7q7

Every little bit counts and makes a huge difference. You have proven that with your kindness and support as we are over half way there!

My sincerest thanks
