Update #8

Friday 2 am, 54 hours to go: $93K out of $100K: you can make the difference!

Comment

Dear Backers, 

It's Friday morning at 2 am, six hours later after the last update. Now we only have 54 hours to go and I'm kind of afraid to go to sleep. : )

Now we're up to $92,983 ($87K six hours ago). Since we've crossed $90,000, we would like to ask your help in going for just $7500 more so we can cross $100,000. It is totally possible.  This will also be 250% of our original goal. 

This will let us get Moving Windmills to fine cut (one step before final cut) instead of just rough cut, an important further milestone in the editing process, and help us do it faster.

Would you consider asking a friend to pledge? Or upping your pledge? If some of you can double your pledge (or even increase by 50% we could get to $100K by the end of Friday. By the time most of you read this it will be less than 46 hours left! 

Help me Obi Wan Kenobi you're my only hope! You have the power to make this happen!

Thank you for everything from the bottom of our hearts!

Tom (Ben is already asleep in Brooklyn. : )
