Thank you.

5 comments

With the help of 736 supporters from all around the world we were able to raise over $80,0000 for FREEFORM OR DEATH. We would like to start out by saying how overjoyed and extremely grateful we are for your support. In two weeks, we will begin the editing process and start fulfilling our promise to all of you, to make a great documentary about WFMU.  We are aiming to have a version of the film finished by the end of the year so that we will be ready for the 2013 spring festival circuit.

Next week, we will be sending out a survey to many of you, so that we can get you all of your rewards.  In addition, thank you notes will be going out with links to some of my favorite WFMU archived shows.  

I know that much of the support pushing this Kickstarter forward came from the incredible love and loyalty people have for WFMU. That said, it has been a personal highlight of my life that so many of you have come out in support of this film. Over the next months we will be sending out updates to keep you in the loop, because without you this wouldn't be possible.

With gratitude,

Tim K Smith

      The Kickstarter email isn't working for me, so I'm responding to your request re: T-shirt size here. Please make mine an XL. Thanks!

      Definitely my love for WFMU was a big reason why I wanted to donate - but it was seeing your work and obvious enthusiasm for this project that sealed the deal for me.

      I really can't wait to see the finished film, thank you for doing this.
