Well LA DE DA!!!!!
To all of our fantastic backers who have watched this project grow for the last 50-odd days...
.... Drum roll, please ...
WE REACHED OUR GOAL LAST NIGHT!!!!!
There has been much rejoicing over here, and we celebrated with some morning flights at Wallaby Ranch, where we arrived "home" a few days ago. The timing is awesome - it's one year almost to the day since we started the project with my first tandem flight, and now we're gearing up to do a preview screening as part of Wills Wing Demo Days - a five-day festival here at the Ranch.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the support - above and beyond our goal. We are so appreciative knowing that we can do more than our shoestring budget with the film - which is such a gift.
Stay tuned for more updates from us... we'll be posting photos and such from the event this weekend.
