The first feature film by Koo (dir. of The West Side, founder of NoFilmSchool.com) explores the high-stakes world of youth basketball. Read more
This project was successfully funded on September 23, 2011.
90% There With 24 Hours Left!
As I send this there are just over 24 hours left in the Man-child campaign.
It's been an absolute dream come true.
Despite spending the last 18 months of my life building an audience online, I still had no idea if anyone was going to support my campaign to make an independent youth basketball feature. And here we are over 1,800 backers later! We just hit 90% funded! It has truly been the most amazing experience of my life -- I can't thank you enough.
I wanted to remind you to tune in live tomorrow night (Friday, September 23) at 9pm Eastern for a live video stream/chat of the last three hours of the campaign. I'll send you the streaming link when it goes live, and it will also appear on the Man-child Kickstarter page.
Even better, if you're in NYC come to the party in Brooklyn, kicking off at 8pm!
Finally, I wanted to share with you a list of all of the interviews, guest posts, and news items that have helped this campaign get to this point! Maybe you found out about Man-child from one of these sources? It's a long list, so I'll sign off now knowing that this won't be of interest to many more folks than my mom (hi, mom!).
Thank you all so much, again. And again.
Fingers crossed, we're going to make it! Just $10k left to go. See you tomorrow night!
