    I expect that I'll have to miss it too, beaker. With only $3,000 to go now, this hangout should be a celebration!

    Congratulations to Jen and Kira at $212,962!! Considering that Kickstarter and Amazon payments take about 7-10%, the cushion above $200,000 will help to defray their campaign costs. Including $2,500 from last week's special jury prize, they raised over $215,000.

    Much work ahead...

    So this invitation probably holds: “If you are interested in making a tax-deductible donation or investing in the project in a deeper way, email jen@canaryinacoalminefilm.com. We'd love to have a conversation.”
