Our Kickstarter fundraiser for our documentary is now in it’s final week! Just 7 days to go! We’re fairly confident that we’ll make it (projects that make it to 50% funding have historically had a 97% success rate) but we’re doing everything we can in the meantime to help get us there!
We been tweaking the reward levels and adding new stuff, so I’m doing a round-up of what we have right now. We tried to pack if FULL of cool stuff for every level, so you’re always getting a ton of value.
Here is how it works: whatever reward level you pick, you get EVERYTHING ABOVE IT too. International shipping included. It helps if you think of the price as the difference between the levels, so the Two VIP tickets are $50 plus the $200 level rewards. Since everything rolls up, you’re not paying that price for one thing, but for the whole package.
$1 – Stay in the loop. No “reward” but you’ll be on our backer list and if you’re thinking of catching a screening of the film next year but are broke right now, you could do this level to show your support and get updates when we’re accepted to specific festivals.
$5 – Email thank you from us & a mention on the official website for the movie as a backer. (Plus all above rewards)
$10 – A postcard of Loy Krathong (a scene in the film) and the floating lanterns in Thailand, mailed to you from Thailand with all the cool stamps you get on an international mailing. (Plus all above rewards)
$25 – Digital HD download of the film, released before it goes to the general public (you get it early). (Plus all above rewards)
$50 – DVD signed by the creators. DVD includes special features and bonus interviews (like the guy in 80’s who was literally the FIRST wireless nomad and coined the term “technomad”) (Plus all above rewards)
$75 – Our “Have Internet, Will Travel” t-shirt. (Plus all above rewards)
$125 – Credit in the film. Imagine being at the theatre and showing your friends, “LOOK! There is MY NAME ON A FILM!” (Plus all above rewards)
$150 – A custom illustration by the film’s director Drew (art school grad, professional animator, published two comic books, he has skillz). After the Kickstarter, we’ll send you instructions, but basically you send in a picture of you, your family or whoever/whatever you want him to draw, and he’ll do it. (Plus you can choose the “style” you want.) (Plus all above rewards)
$200 – A monogrammed laptop bag. These bags fit a 16 inch laptop and are messenger-style bags but with padding in the laptop pocket to keep your gear safe. You can have your initials, name or favorite expression embroidered on the bag. (Plus all above rewards)
$250 – Two VIP tickets to any of the film festival screenings. Includes a Meet & Greet with the filmmakers (us), food, drinks, a swag bag and a fantastic experience getting to see our movie on the big screen! Locations include: Seattle, San Francisco, LA, Austin, Denver/Telluride (this is one or the other), Boston, and NYC. We may be adding other locations later too. (Plus all above rewards)
A enormous heart felt thank you to everyone who has a) helped us out with this b) spread the word and c) tolerated us beating the drum about this for so long! I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about this process and have some insight into the wild, insane world of bootstrapping your own documentary film. I can not wait until next year when we’ll be able to come out to all these cities and get to meet so many of you! I also can’t believe it won’t just be Drew, Cole and me, but also another little baby! Life is crazy.
Thanks you guys, you are the best! Over $22,000 raised so far, I can’t even believe it.
