Update #1

And we're off!

Comment

Wow, after just one day we're already at 10% of the goal with 29 more days to go.  I'm amazed at the response so far and want to thank each of you!  I plan on posting updates here to transparently show how this project was put together, so that if you have a project you're considering for Kickstarter you might gain some insights (and learn some things to avoid).  

BUT, such updates will be for backers only from here on out.  So if you haven't backed the project yet, even for the $1 minimum, please consider it.  Thanks! 

The next post will be within a few days on how I put the video together, how much it cost, the time it took, etc.
