With only 7 days left in the Kickstarter Campaign and not even reaching 20% of the goal….it’s not looking like this project is going to fund. I’ve been promoting the campaign everyday for hours (this blog, Facebook, various forums, friends, family and manufacturers) but the numbers just aren’t coming up. Hard work is good for the soul and it’s interesting to see that there are a lot of people who talk a good game, but when it comes time to ‘put up’…well, I’m finding that that’s a different story altogether. I understand that these are not the best of economic times, but a little support would be nice. With pledge amounts starting at $1.00, you’d think there would be a few ‘pitty pledges’…right? You know, just to show support.
Either way, this film will get made….it’s just going to take longer then expected since I’ll be funding this privately.
Now I’m looking forward to the SPEED B.A.G. III gathering in Keyport, NJ and getting some of the interviews I need…..and hitting the bag a bit too. I’ll be looking for more private donations there so all hope is not lost! Chin up…. elbows up…. I’m not going down without a fight!
