September 18, 2013, 6:40PM. Backer Chris Mitchell, along with the help of 146 additional backers took us past our Kickstarter goal of $15,000! I am thrilled to announce that my next picture, Wrong Side Up, is getting made and I couldn’t have done it without this community of tech savvy art appreciators. Thank you all for your pledges. – Whether it was 1 dollar or 1000, it was crucial, it was important, and it has added to this production. – On behalf of the Dust Bowl movie crew, I can honestly tell you that this movie would not have been made without your pledge.
One of my favorite things about Kickstarter is the relationship the platform develops between the audiences and the show, before the crew even starts production. In an odd way, along with being a fundraising tool it also assists in marketing and distribution. Some of us have been really good friends before this Kickstarter project, some of us were complete strangers, but now we all have one common bond called Wrong Side Up, and we are all part of its creation. I will update you periodically throughout the production to let you know how your movie is going and we will celebrate together once it is completed and premiered.
Thank you so much for your support and interest in this picture, It’s bound to kick up dust. And there is still 55 hours of pledging to go! Keep on pledging here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hdilla/wrong-side-up-a-dust-bowl-inspired-short-film
