Update #8

Another new song going into the homestretch!

Comment

Hello! It's the first day of October and the last week of our Kickstarter campaign. We're feeling energized and we have you to thank! Because of you we are going into this final week halfway to our goal, with over 200 friends behind us, and we know we can finish strong. It's an amazing feeling, thank you for everything you have done!

We wanted to start the final week of our Kickstarter campaign by sharing with you one more new song from our first movie road trip in August.  At the very start of the trip, we stopped in at the Philadelphia Folk Fest and met Arborea - Buck and Shanti Curran.  We all gathered on the porch of Joe's Spring Mountain Hotel in Schwenksville, PA to make the beautiful record you can hear below. Arborea recorded the gentle, beautiful and dark "Red Bird" for their flipside, as bees buzzed and motorcycles roared by.

Our Kickstarter officially ends on Friday morning, October 5. These next three days are the last chance for new backers to join.  If you know that anyone wants to give but hasn't yet, remind them that now is the time! 

In other amazing news, The 78 Project is headed to London in two weeks!  We're honored to be selected to participate in Power to the Pixel at The Pixel Market 2012.  There's so much excitement ahead for our movie.  The future is bright!  We're overjoyed that you are a part of it!
