“Night Surf” Kickstarter Has Launched!

16 Aug

Possibly the biggest news yet: our Kickstarter has launched! Before I waste any more time talking about it, head over there and have a gander. We have awesome rewards, a snazzy video starring Ericka and I, and even a brand new photo!

The way Kickstarter works is by meeting a funding goal by a specified deadline. If we don’t reach our goal in the allotted time, we don’t get anything! Fortunately, the folks at Kickstarter make it awfully easy to donate — you just have to have an Amazon account (and, let’s face it, who doesn’t?). Also fortunately, we don’t take failure lightly.

The Kickstarter can be found at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/daveh/night-surf. Click that, or copy and paste it into your browser to start the adventure!

Now, back to the topic at hand: fundraising…

Fundraising is an integral part of filmmaking. From big budget blockbusters to no budget Indies, everyone needs money. The difficult part of film fundraising is that there is little-to-no return,which is why Kickstarter is great.

By going through Kickstarter, we are promising you a return on your investment. Whether it’s a signed script, a Blu-Ray, or a haiku written by yours truly, everyone leaves with something.

Also, you’re investing in art — everyone involved in the Night Surf film is a creator. Creating the inner thoughts of a character, creating dialogue, or creating lighting design, your contribution will help to further the innate desire to create something from nothing, to give life where there wasn’t before.

I hope this post encourages you to at least spread the word of our project. Send this along to friends, colleagues, anyone who may be interested in art or film; we promise not to disappoint.

Over the next month, we’ll be posting much more… so, keep an eye out.

For now, stay classy.
