The Vinyl Story - Keeping in the Groove
Thanks to all you wonderful backers we have for The Vinyl Story.
We are in the last 24 hours of the campaign and although we have had great response from getting the word out about The Vinyl Story it looks like we won't quite hit the mark.
BUT - we have GOOD NEWS, The Vinyl Story documentary will still be made.

The Vinyl Story is a cram packed 2 hour documentary film that takes you on a nostalgic journey from the origins of Vinyl up to near extinction with the slowdown of sales and releases and then on to the Vinyl Revival we see today.
The Vinyl Story documentary will include interviews with Recording Artists, Cover Artwork Design Artists, Record Companies, Vinyl Pressing Plants, Record Shops and Collectors. We will also be looking at Turntables, Amps and Cartridges discovering new innovations that are happening around Vinyl.
STRETCH GOAL - We are planning to do a stretch goal to include an extra Documentary (The Mixtape Story) Blu-ray disc to make this a DOUBLE Blu-ray release.
The accompanying 150 Page Hardback Book to The Vinyl Story will include interviews and articles from the documentary and will also include extra insights, statistics and information together with a directory of some of the best Record Shops in the world for collectors.

STRETCH GOAL - We are planning to do a stretch goal to include an extra vinyl disc to make this a DOUBLE Vinyl release.
