Our Campaign to Give Back to You
Let’s face it…we all know that sometimes Kickstarter campaigns can tire your friends and family out.
Since we don’t believe in asking without giving, we’re working to provide something of real value every day we bug you to join our effort to fund our Academy Award® campaign.
Today, we may be giving you $20,000.
Well, as you’ve seen, we raised over $20,000 in 48 hours! And now we’re up to 61% of our goal.
So we thought we’d share the blog posts we studied along the way that gave us such a great start. We read and re-read these posts, and it seems that the advice is worth at least five figures.

Justin also recently launched the new site CrowdFunding Help.
- John August’s Blog

How’s it all Going?
Well, we’re proud to have had a terrific launch, and now there’s a post from Chip Street that dissects our campaign:
Not There Yet
While we’re off to a great start, we need your help to bring this home.
If you haven’t already, please pledge to our project. As little as one dollar will get you a comedy mp3, and $50 and above includes a personalized I’M DYING TO button hand-written by Steve, and a copy of the special edition DVD with tons of extras.
