Update #1

Off To A Great Start!

Comment

Today is Day 3 of our Awesome Asian Bad Guys Kickstarter campaign, and we're actually writing this update from 37,000 ft. in the air on a flight to NYC.

In just over 2 days, we've already raised over $4900!!! Thanks to 60 amazing contributors, including several folks from abroad, we're well on our way to hitting our ambitious $50K goal.

Last night we celebrated the National Film Society's 1-year anniversary with an amazing party in at the Far Bar in LA's Little Tokyo. We screened our Kickstarter video, and the crowd actually laughed (more than once)!

If you happen to be in the New York area, come join us at our other 1-Year Anniversary Party this Friday night in Manhattan:

Also join us for our 2nd livestreaming telethon this Friday (9/14) at 4:30PM EST / 1:30PM PST. We'll be filling you in on our progress, telling you about our NY adventures and answering questions. Tune in here:

If you haven't shared the project link with your friends yet, please do so. Getting the word out to as many people as possible is going to make a huge difference.
