“Zeus” Kickstarter Fund Raises $3,400; Joy and Gratefulness Abound

Early today, our Kickstarter campaign finished up after 35 days on the circuit. Not only did you, faithful friends, help meet our $3,000 goal, you obliterated it by a cool $400. That, for lack of a better word, is rad.

All I can say is thanks. Thanks for your time in following our project. And, certainly, thanks for contributing your hard-earned dollars. All for a film that a large majority of you have yet to see. We hope to change that very soon.

There were about 100 of you who donated. It’s been fun going through the list of names — I see some of my longtime friends who I grew up with, Charlotte, NC coworkers and friends (looking at you, South County Regional Library), a couple of “Oh wows” (Anne Flournoy?! TED Fellows?!) as well as a few folks who are relatively new in my life. Truly blessed to know you. Thank you to:

Next up, Hurls will be entering “Zeus” in precisely 17 film festivals AND putting together the DVD packaging for those who received a copy as a Kickstarter incentive (wait until you see what Hurls’ insanely talent sister, Emily, put together. SICK.)

And, on the music front, I’ll be releasing a new track off the record sometime in the next two weeks. More on that shortly.
