The Olympics put a big crimp in the momentum of my Indiegogo campaign. The campaign started on Wednesday and seemed to increase by $100 each day until Friday when the Olympics started. Everyone's attention (even mine) was on the Olympics for two weeks and the fundraising for "Created Equal: The Artists of Alchemia" flatlined. In the last few days, the momentum has started to build up, but the campaign was coming to its last couple of days. Fortunately Indiegogo was kind enough to let us extend the deadline until November 22. That should give us time to spread the word, through social media, press releases, and radio shows. I will be shooting the film as I am fundraising and plan to finish the film by November too. As I finish sections of the film, I will post them on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Indiegogo so you can be a part of the process and see progress on the film.
For people who have already contributed, you will get your perks in about two weeks. The T-shirts might take three weeks since we are starting with a new printing company. The credits in the film and the DVD will obviously have to wait until the film is completed in November.
Thank you to all who have contributed so far. I will post more names on the thank you pg
Yesterday the contributions to "Created Equal: The Artists of Alchemia" jumped from $675 to $935. You can see a list of the generous contributors.
Julie Newmar said some very kind words about the project on her Facebook page.
The big news is a new perk for contributors to "Created Equal". If you contribute $20, you can get Julie Newmar's voice in a ring tone for your phone. Julie has graciously agreed to record a ring tone. She will write the ringtone herself in her own words, so you know it will be worth hearing, This will be a rare collectors item for just a$20.
