We did it! We cleared $15,000! Cue the theme to Rocky!
Our Kickstarter campaign to get the film distributed is officially underway! The deal is we’ve shot the film, we’ve edited the film, we’ve shown the film in very limited screenings, but we don’t own the music rights to distribute the film.
Lots of people like this film, and many people want copies (including several of the soldiers in the film). But music rights are really, really expensive. We’ve edited out as much music as we could, and the songs left over we believe are integral to the story and it would suffer without them.
We’ve had to sit on this for years and just want to get it out to the world. At $15,000, your contributions will allow us to pay for the music rights for all the music used in the film. Our stretch goal of $25,000 will also allow us to hire someone to help us with distribution.
Thank you in advance, and please take a moment to read more about the film.
The turn out at the screenings was really impressive, and I really appreciate everyone who was able to make it. For those of you who weren’t, and there seem to be many of you, we’ll figure out another screening and we’ll post details here. We’ll also put up the FAQs from the festival Q&A’s sometime soon.
Dunno if this is important or not, but as far as publicity goes, Don and I will be on 107.1 KGSR at 7am on Weds to talk about the movie…
Don has been working long hours, and the cut is now 96 minutes long, down from the original 140. We’re finally about ready to go…
