Within the first couple of hours, we were 107% funded. The speed with which we were able to reach our initial goal was such a welcome surprise! I am so grateful and truly humbled by the generosity of our backers. Now we have the minimum amount we need to make our film happen!
But we're not the types to rest on our laurels -- there's still a whole month of the campaign ahead. We've made our minimum goal, but there are still plenty of rewards left for potential backers to pick up. We will be posting some stretch goal information soon, so stay tuned. In the meantime, check out our rewards and back us to become a part of the entire experience of making The Rift. Remember, this is a labor of love and the more money we raise, the more awesomeness we can put up on screen.
Right now, everyone on the team is either volunteering their time or making room in their schedules to help make The Rift for a deeply discounted rate -- because they love our script and believe in the power of the story, just as I do. These are professionals who earn their living making films. And since this is a low-budget film, each of us is already working in multiple capacities. By backing us now, you can enable us to begin compensating our team more appropriately for their tremendous commitment of time and energy. Not only that, but the more we raise, the more we can spend on making our monster, the spectral villain that invades Leah & Will's home, look as ominous and terrifying as possible.
We also want to include you in the whole process of making this film. Making a film is an intense undertaking, but it's also very exciting! We have rewards starting at $1; check them out.
More details to come very soon on our stretch goals and what they will enable us to do!
Thanks to all who have supported and spread the word about our Kickstarter campaign. Let’s make a great movie together!
