    For a thousand dollars, what can we possibly do besides sing your praises far and wide and give you everything listed above? We can give you a private behind-the-scenes tour of the film via outtakes, missing scenes and raw footage. Get a peek at some of the beautiful, crazy and sometimes a little embarrassing moments that were left on the cutting room floor.

    Okay, in one fell swoop you've pretty much cut our funding issues in half. Let's be real, there's little we can do to express the inexpressible amount of gratitude we're feeling. We promise to make the best film that we can possibly make and take it as far and wide as we're physically able to. And we're giving you Executive Producer credit on the film. Of course, you'll also get all the previous rewards. We're speechless.
