John and Emily’s music is truly the soundtrack to Abbie’s life. For $5, download one of these five songs. Choose from: “Dust Bowl", “Going Down Loud”, “Butterfly Girl” by John Evans Band; or “Back To The Way I Was" and “Pusher Girl” by Emily Bell. You will also receive a Merch Girl post card in the mail designed by Abbie just for our Kickstarter supporters. And of course, you’ll also get a shout out on our website and be added to the Merch Girl email list for all the up to the minute info.

    We wanted to offer another NYC based reward for our east coast supporters! So for $75, our very own editor, Jess Miller, will be teaching a 2 hour Final Cut Pro class for beginners. During the class, you will work with raw footage from Merch Girl, and learn the basics of the interface, how to use transitions, text, special effects, and even a little about color correction. The 5-person classes will be held at Moondog Edit, a high-end post production facility in Manhattan. There will be two classes, so you will have a choice of two dates. After the class, you will be able to go home and edit your very own movie! www.moondogedit.com
