76 Backers! (It’s Not Just About The Dollars)
We are excited and (I realize now why this is a cliché) humbled to see we not only have over $7,000 in pledges, but we also have 76 backers (as I type; I’ve had to change it once already).
The latter number feels so important. It is the number of people who believe enough in us–or, more importantly, who believe in this project–that this is all about.
We are building our audience, one backer at a time. I’m trying to think of a more direct way to get audience investment in your story than to have an audience made up of people who have actually invested in your story.
To these people, we owe a good film. And a big hug.
