"Stretch goals" and additional funds
We've come up with a plan for our "stretch goals" - which are often added to projects that meet their goal early. You backers have been amazing - but we have heard from several people who were waiting for the final push, so here's your chance.
#1: $52,500 This biggest one we've already met - which is to create additional mixes and approach major remix artists (like Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, Ferry Corsten etc.) to see if they would consider doing a remix of "Adagio for Strings" for the film. If we can get one or more to say yes, this would really help with the distribution of the film in Europe, Asia, South America, Middle East and more.
#2: $60,000 We have technical support in place for the recording, but some of the key people were originally set to do it remotely. This will allow us to fly them out, pay their day rates for 2 days ($1100 per day) and have them onsite so we can deal with any issue that might come up. Normally only big Hollywood films get this option!
#3: $65,000 The film is overdue for a boost in storage of another 50TB. This will get us all we need to finish the film. We also have 2 aging monitors - the primary ones used - that have LCD "burn-in" that cannot be repaired. Any amount over $65,000 will go to replacing 1 or both of them.
