The Tube Open Movie Kickstarter reached the goal of $22,000 in an amazing five days!
At officially 1:27pm EST today, we heard the BOOM that pushed us over the threshold to achieve real funding. Since pledges are not guaranteed until the target is met, it feels in a way like this is the real beginning. Looking back over the slog of reaching the production mid-point by keeping a low overhead, trading lots of favors and putting anything earned back into Tube, I can only say what a fine day indeed! Mega-thanks to our earliest supporters for their solidarity and incredible backing.
This doesn't mean the kickstarter is done though - with additional funds, Tube plans to extend the project:
Tube is designed to scale with the resources we have. You can see from the project video that we are hard at work making the movie, in tandem with running its campaign -- and we want the result to be amazing. Crucially, further funds will allow us to focus on Tube without interruption, give commissions to our valiant crew and make new hires.
