Uh, that was quick.
I'm going to be honest and say I never would've thought that we'd get this far so soon! We've already hit our minimum goal and it's only day 2!
Thank you to all of you amazing people. I've gotten such an incredible outpouring of support since we launched this campaign. It really tells me how hungry everyone is for these stories.
What does this mean for us? Well, keep in mind that $5000 has always just been the minimum. That's what we would've needed to just barely get by. What it comes down to is this:
The more we make, the more I can focus exclusively on Black Cloud.
And the more I can focus exclusively on Black Cloud, the better Black Cloud will be.
Currently, this is a "weekend" project at best. All of my other freelance work simply takes precedence so I can, y'know, pay rent. Every dollar we raise beyond our minimum goal allows me to devote more time to this film.
Again, thank you to everyone who has donated and/or spread the word about the campaign and the film. My heart is flooded with gratitude. It is an incredibly vulnerable experiencing when you let people finally see a piece of a project you're passionate about, and to be met with such a positive response has been incredibly strengthening.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
