A Kickstarter Update: Exceeding Our Expectations

Last night, Christopher and I were huddled on a cold bus back from Denver, checking our email when we received the notice that one large donation had come in, tipping us over our Kickstarter goal.

We smacked a huge high-five and breathed a deep sigh of gratitude. We couldn’t have done it without every single person who has shared our link, ‘liked’ our video, and pulled out their credit cards to back this labor of love.

Thanks to everyone who has supported the project thus far, we will be able to cover most of our post-production costs, including sound editing and recording our original score, and professional color correction. These elements will help to make the film as high-quality as possible, immersing our viewers in the experience of small living. Huge thanks to everyone who has made this possible!

But Wait—We Still Have 8 Days….

We made 100%, but we’re not stopping there!

We have given ourselves a new goal of $10,000.00 by December 15.

Given the tremendous support we have received so far, we think we can easily reach this new goal so we can get this film out into the world by submitting it to as many film festivals as possible.

  • Film festival submissions range between $30-40 a pop for short films, and excess funds raised here on Kickstarter will help to ensure that we have the budget to submit to film festivals around the country, to reach as wide an audience as possible.
  • We’ll also be using excess funds to rent a small plane for two key aerial shots—one of the Denver suburbs, and other of the tiny house in its final home in the Colorado mountains.
  • And if we get really close to our new $10,000.00 goal, we’ll be able to pay the other members of our team—including videographer Kevin Hoth— which we think they really deserve.

If so inspired, please continue sharing our project link with anyone and everyone who might be interested. Holiday cheers all around and we’ll be sure to keep updated over the next 8 days!

Huge thanks to everyone,

Merete & Christopher
