Well. I did it. With a little help from my friends. I now look like a crazy person because I haven’t been out for three days. I know how loads of people just say that sort of thing but I proper mean it. Crazy person who looks a bit grubby. I feel grubby. On the inside. Kickstarter has very nearly finished me off. And it’s nobody’s fault but my own. I should have started it weeks ago.
Hang on. I did start it weeks ago. I made the video for the page in May.. or was it April? (see lovely shot of brilliant Pippa Haywood below who I’m making be in my film)
“What’s Kickstarter?” some of you may wonder. You fools. You innocent fools. It’s a crowd funder super site and I’m using it to try and fund my project WE SHADOWS which launches (fingers crossed) on Midsummer. Appropriate given the film is inspired by Helena and Puck from Midsummer Night’s Dream! And so poetic! What a cool idea Chris…. ok it’s actually sort of the day after that we launch (Tuesday 21st June) but if I do it in the early hours of the morning it’s still Midsummer’s Night! Isn’t it, sort of? If I do it when it’s still dark?…
Bollocks. Ok look. Tuesday is around about the Midsummer area. So I will be continuing to call it Midsummer despite all protestations to the contrary. Heed ye. I’m so glad that’s cleared up.
I am now going to have a wash and eat something other than digestive biscuits with butter on them. Yeah yeah. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it, ok?
