Well, we did not reach our funding goal with Kickstarter. Which means we didn't receive any money. However, we did generate nearly $10,000 in pledges, which is no chump change! That's still a lot of "virtual" money, and a lot of generated interest and support for the project.
So, the eggs are still incubating and WHEN HOPE HATCHES can still hatch.
One plan is to have an old-fashioned fundraiser and have all those backers simply re-contribute with a check made out to HorsePower Pictures. Many people said they'd be more than willing to do that. In fact, we found a fair percentage of people who just weren't open to the Kickstarter process. Either because they "won't use their credit card online" or they simply couldn't figure it out.
A lot of good came out of the entire Kickstarter. Hope is alive and well for our doc.
I'll be making a decision any day now, and will notify the public very soon about our plans.
Thank you to everyone who pledged, voiced their support, helped out, and generally believes in the project and my work. I am eternally grateful. Thank you!
