Whoa!

WE DID IT! We really friggin did it! And no, it’s not an April Fools joke! I had an angel investor (who would like to remain anonymous for now) swoop in at the last minute and help us make our Indigiegogo goal! I’m still pinching myself!

We reached our fundraising goal of $7000 thanks to YOU and your many contributions, big and small, your shares and posts on social media and support!!!

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Because we reached the goal, Indiegogo just put us in the ‘InDemand‘ status! This is a big deal! What does it mean?

Well, for one, bragging rights! Indiegogo likes us and might even promote us from time to time. Most importantly, it also means people can still contribute and claim perks at their leisure, without any deadlines, until we decide to de-activate the Indiegogo campaign page! Basically, everything that is contributed to “Things We Dig” from now on will go towards post production costs such as film festival entry fees, marketing, etc.

I will keep the page updated as we move into all phases of film production and let you know how our little film progresses! We might even add new perks as they become available! If we do, I’ll let you know in our updates and in this blog as well.

In the meantime, you can also follow us on Twitter, Facebook and even Instagram(this one’s gonna be fun, cause it’s from the perspective of one of the film’s characters)!

So stay tuned and thanks again!

Last but not least, meet co-producer Miguel Rodriguez, THE Horror Meister of San Diego! He a major force to be reckoned with in the horror filmmaker circles. Not only is he the director of the spectacular annual Horrible Imaginings Film Festival in San Diego,  he also runs a regular podcast not to be missed! Speaking of – if you are a filmmaker, don’t miss your chance to submit your movie to his festival via FilmFreeway!

Geez, as I’m adding the logos and see the colors, I notice a theme…bloody red and black as night! Coincidence? I think not! I see it as a good omen ;)

What else? I think that’s it…for now. Stay tuned!

It has begun!

The Indiegogo campaign for my next short film, “Things We Dig“, has been launched a couple of hours ago! If you have a few dollars to spare, or a lot – I’d appreciate any contribution!

Also, feel free to share the campaign page with anybody who might be interested in supporting an indie horror comedy!

First off – here’s my 2 minute pitch (with co-star Jenn Larson):
