    Now they are pushing to get a slew of $1 backers to push the number of backers up. This is to break the record. If they do that, it means great publicity for the movie.

    I'm not sure how this works, but apparently the original goal was just enough to get started, and then they were going to try to raise more later. But it went so well, it looks like they are going for full budget now, which is $200,000. I hope this works out for them. The preview is very impressive.

    With 10 days remaining, the countdown begins:

    1,736 backers
    $152,019 pledged
    10 days to go


    Today added less than $2,000--making the last climb to the goal look more difficult.

    The press should take notice of breaking the $150,000 mark and needing help in the last big stretch, I hope.

    I wish they would have a higher number of backers. I like their promotion.

    Get at least 10 friends to donate $1 each (through your link), and get a Behind the Scenes Pass.

    You first give your email and name here http://j.mp/canary6509 and shows more information.

    You get entered to win a filming too, and the one who refers the most gets invitations to all 3 events.

    They have 5 days to go and $165,331. They would like to reach $200,000 so they can make this a better movie. There is a feature there for managing your donation. I just increased mine.
