Nate's super talented. It's why I wrote the movie for him.

As for the effects, I didn't have anything to do with that picture but I'd be very surprised if they were the same.

Also, I just posted some thoughts on the Kickstarter about marketing bulls**t and whether or not Bill Hicks would like what we're doing. Give it a read if that sort of thing interests you.

I hopped over through Reddit and looked at subs that might be inclined to care about your Kickstarter. I came upon http://www.reddit.com/r/Filmmakers/ which might not be great and might not approve of solicitation, and http://www.reddit.com/r/kickstarter which is specifically *for* solicitation, but not necessarily a movie crowd. www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/kfdro/ ... ts_if_you/ is a list of movies subreddits if you want to take a peek. I'm not sure where you've advertised or anything. But yeah, good luck.

...I still need to do the moneys thing.

Thanks for the list, sir! I posted a link in the fairly dead Kickstarter subreddit a few days ago and a friend posted us up in movies a week or so back, both did okay-ish but failed to get any real traction.One with 9 points, 13 up and 4 down and the other with 11 points 22/11.

By contrast todays comic is currently at 310 with 412/102

And, since I wrote em both, I feel comfortable saying the kickstarter video is way better than the comic. Meh. Whatevs.

I'll definitely look through the list and post it up in a couple of other places though. Really appreciate your digging that up for us.

Thanks again!

Post Re: My New Movie Kicks Off
Okay, my lovelies. Here's the thing. Love Letter is in the home stretch, time wise, and not goal wise. For a few weeks I tried to figure out how much more money I could spare, until I realized I can't spare $20,000, and neither can you. But if 4,000 people could spare $5, we might have ourselves an amazing movie. We all love the E, so what can we do?

Spread this s**t. Get on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Tumblr, that other forum you check, wherever you can think to go. Think of someone you think might find this movie interesting, pick a link you think would be most relevant to their interests, and briefly explain why you think they'll find it awesome too, encouraging them to pledge. If you can find people who might repost your recommendation to thousands of like-minded folk, even better. Something along the lines of, "@neilhimself This tribute to your wife's Kickstarter made me laugh [insert link]."

Here are some links, if you'd like to join the street team:

http://www.LLkick.com The easy to remember URL for the main Kickstarter page.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1423478098/love-letter-feature-film/posts/244879 Update 1: Writer, Ethan Hunter, shares indie music he listened to while writing about blood and murder and funny.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1423478098/love-letter-feature-film/posts/247472 Update 2: Stemage will be on the soundtrack.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1423478098/love-letter-feature-film/posts/248546 Update 3 - Blooper reel for the Kickstarter video.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1423478098/love-letter-feature-film/posts/251223
Update 4 - Several links to various media coverage. And those links are

- http://www.mrmovietimes.com/movie-news/interview-with-director-craig-thieman/ An interview with the director, Craig Thieman.

- http://cinemaassassin.com/producer-kickstarter/ An article that reads more like the press release itself, singing the praises of Love Letter.

- http://jaymckinnon.com/blog/the-post/solitude-alphs-girls-and-sasquatch-training Pretty much just a link back to the Kickstarter page.

- http://www.ashvegas.com/in-fun-kickstarter-video-two-former-unc-asheville-filmmakers-seek-cash-for-new-movie An article from the creators' hometown, which focuses on their accomplishments and awards.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1423478098/love-letter-feature-film/posts/251793 Update 5 - E suggests Bill Hicks might have enjoyed what's happening here.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1423478098/love-letter-feature-film/posts/252600 Update 6 - E quotes Steven Moffat, a writer from Doctor Who.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1423478098/love-letter-feature-film/posts/253983 Update 7 - E does his Amanda Palmer homage.

http://ethanhunter.tumblr.com/ Universal Monsters - Ethan's novel in progress. A story about monsters taking over the world, told from the perspective of surviving inmates. An excellent sample of his writing, since they can't read the movie script.

http://www.cuttingroomcomic.com/ A comic strip written mostly by Ethan (the recent ones are). Yesterday's Marvel vs Capcom 3strip has been tremendously popular, but hasn't been pulling in much money, so if you link it, maybe mention the Kickstarter too?

http://www.207pictures.com/Love-Letter-Press-Kit Love Letter press kit.

http://www.207pictures.com/ The 207pictures hub.

http://www.youtube.com/user/hankandjed Youtube channel for Hank and Jed Productions. Nate Panning, one of the stars of Love Letter, is half of this team and very funny. A lot of this channel is animated...

http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLD4653BC22B06C77E&feature=plcp The live action part of the Hank and Jed channel.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIE_olUuj9o&list=PLD4653BC22B06C77E&index=2&feature=plpp_video A comedy sketch that features Nate Panning.

That ought to be enough to get you going. As E says, you are all heroes. This is not just about making a movie. This is about changing the voice of entertainment. And entertainment is not just about what you do with that extra two hours in your evening. Our entertainment shapes our culture, our society. Movies change the world. Go be heroes.

Edit: While typing this up, this just happened! http://neil-gaiman.tumblr.com/post/25920764221/207pictures-www-llkick-com-inspired-by-amanda

Well shucks.

My brain: Oh neat, submitted to a Neil Gaiman tumblr.

"The official Neil Gaiman Tumblr, but honestly no better than the unofficial Neil Gaiman Tumblrs out there. Will sometimes have stuff about my dogs or my wife in it. "

That might help...

I don't follow the foosball or anything, so this is like the playoffs to me. It's super exciting. 55 hours left, with the goal really close. That dollar amount has been jumping all over in the past day or two. Saturday at midnight I'm going to pee my pants and pass out. http://www.LLKick.com

Thanks guys! I'm excited as heck! Hope you all dig what we do with your cash.

But first I've gotta sleep for, like, a month. This stuff is silly exhausting.

I gotta say, I was a little worried for a while that you wouldn't make it. I'm super happy that you did though. I can't wait to see the finished product.

You and me both, brother. But when I got worried I just hustled a little more. I could write a damn book on what i learned during this process, but one of the key things was how important the early money was. At a certain point we were able to leverage the number of people and the amount of money into bigger donations from people who believed because others believed. I won't bore you with all this s**t, but the point is you, Duck, and Carl and a number of the MM crew came in very, very early and that s**t was HUGE. Thanks so much to all of you!

I'm just glad I could help. I've watched and read enough of your stuff to know that I"m gonna enjoy whatever ever it is that you guys eventually put out.

you, Duck, and Carl


I know when you say "Carl" you don't mean me "Carl" but the capt_carl "Carl" but I'm just going to go ahead a imagine that you're mentioning me three times so I can feel special.

Kickstart the awesome! Also, keep the guns hidden away. After all that script may need some revisions. ;-)

Glad to be a part of yet another awesome project of yours. Is it too late to bump up a tier and get in on the cretiz loot?

I've been on vacation with limited computer access. So I wish to say that I was surprised and very pleased when I saw the email saying that my payment was sent to you. I'm back and glad to see that it worked out and such. Good luck with the moviefilm!
