This is kicksparticus!
But see, we've re-booted the funding campaign for our new, improved (ridiculously tightened) budget, so I wanted to tell you that it would make me happy if you would go check it out right now, "like" the facebook page, and make (or re-make) your pledge.
It has come to my attention, however, that some of the peoples in my neighborhood don't actually know what kickstarter is, and find the prospect of pledging to it to be a little daunting. So before you click your way over there, here's the low-down:
Kickstarter is an online crowd-funding platform for projects -- usually arts-related. It's a way for ordinary chaps like myself to reach out to their network of friends, family, strangers and enemies and say, "Hey, here's something I really believe in and want to do but I don't have money for it and I think you might want to be a part of it."
If you then check out the project and decide to join up, there's a neon-green button on the upper right corner that reads "Back this Project." All you have to do is click that button and decide what you want to pledge to the project, and then kickstarter will ease you through the process of making that pledge through Amazon's system, using your credit card.
Our project goal is $14,000.
If we do not reach that goal by the end of the kickstarter campaign (Saturday, June 22, at 2:12pm), then we get zero percent of that money, and your pledge disappears -- POOF! -- like it never happened.
If we DO reach that goal, your card will be charged and you will receive whatever rewards the kickstarter campaign specified for your pledge level, by the date specified on the campaign.
And that's it. That's all. That's how we pay for the privilege of making LOCKER 212, a film about what YOU can do about school bullying and violence.
