We Made It! (Don't Stop Here!)

Comment

WE MADE IT!

Thank you all SOOOOOO MUCH for your support! We're at $8000, which means we're guaranteed to complete fundraising! But the adventure doesn't stop here!

Every penny additional that we can raise will go towards helping us pay for additional dressing, additional props, additional little elements that we didn't think we could afford, but will help us make the movie that much more INSPIRING AND AMAZING to young generations. Please keep spreading the word, we have about two days left to raise every penny we can!

We'll be sending out updates regarding shipping costs today, but thank you again so much for everything and we can't wait to share this film with you!

Best,

Freddy, Gil, Christina and Arturo!

Hey backers,

AMAZING! Some real support has come through in the last few days, and we are CLOSER THAN EVER TO ACHIEVING OUR GOAL! This is incredible news and means it's time to really push to the finish line!

We still need a little under $3,000; and of course any additional funds will only help us make this project even greater! So please, keep contacting friends, family, random people who follow you on twitter! Use the hashtag #wheretheskyisborn and let everyone know:

"We're close to the finish line! Check out http://t.co/zxfMzQo to support #wheretheskyisborn!"

Thanks again for your support! We're so close! As a special treat, check out this video from our recent location scout in the King City area! http://t.co/zxfMzQo 

Also, follow @gilmarsden on Twitter for more updates! Let's do this!

- Freddy, Gil, Arturo and Christina
