Update #4

"Strutter" Thanx You!

Comment

To our cherished pledgers!

What a wonderful way to start 2011 -- with our goal more than met to make our film! In February, thanks to you, we will begin production of "Strutter".

In the next few weeks Amazon will be collecting your pledged funds and holding it in an account for 2 weeks. Meanwhile, we will be putting together your rewards bags and gathering info from you: addresses, sizes if needed, etc. When the funds drop mid-January we will begin the shipping and delivery process. (Those of you who pledged for the private party screening rewards will be updated on the film's completion and a date set for your event.)

Thank you so very much for your generosity. We truly could not make this movie without each and every pledge.

Our deepest gratitude and happy new year!

XOXOXO

Allison Anders, Kurt Voss & Strutters!
