It’s been a busy week, getting the set ready and doing admin-y things necessary so we can get the shooting schedule set up. We were creeping towards the Indiegogo Campaign deadline, too, so I tweeted this morning and then went out for the day, prop buying….
A few hours later….
…I came back to some seriously amazing news. I checked out my emails and – we had reached our total!!! It took a little while to sink in…we were there! With two weeks to spare! Words can’t describe how I felt- still feel. It’s amazing…and it’s all down to YOU – the people who donated and everyone who spread the word!
This has been such a wonderful experience so far. Your generosity, support and help has been fantastic. We are the little webseries that could! We’ve recorded a little video for you tonight as a thank you and I’ll post that tomorrow when I’ve edited it. We filmed it on the set of ‘Mind My Brains, Darling!’ – the set that the money you donated helped pay for. It’s full steam ahead – more news soon!
Today we launch the first teaser for our brand new webseries, Mind My Brains, Darling, the much-hyped Project X that we’ve been preparing for for the last few weeks. It’s been hard to keep it all quiet and a relief to get it all out in the open (TWSS)! We’re also launching a funding campaign on Indiegogo.
Freshen your boots, Gov’nor?
Making webseries is a cost-effective way to tell your story, but it isn’t free. Even for a budget-conscious pair like us there are inevitable costs. We need a little help to build the sets, finish the props and costuming and upgrade our editing machine. We don’t want to get owt for nowt, though, and there are some rather nifty perks available to anyone who donates $1 or more.
Money isn’t everything
We’d still like your help even if it’s not the folding green stuff. Posting links or widgets on Twitter, Facebook, your blog and other social networks is invaluable, too. The more we can spread the word the better. We know not everyone can donate, but we’d still love to have you on board.
We’d love to hear from you about what we’re doing with the webseries and the funding, so please let us know. Ask away and if you have any suggestions, you comment here or email us: higletfilms at gmail.com.
And now….the pitch!
If you want to know more, go to Indiegogo.com/mindmybrains and see what’s in store. And while you’re there, you might want to make a quick donation…. 🙂
