Well done to Vicki....Cant wait to see yout latest film!
A quick message to kick off this rainy Wednesday - and it's a double whammy of good news. Firstly I'm delighted to report that we successfully reached (and actually surpassed) our IndieGoGo target - hurrah! Thanks so so much to every one of the 27 people who collectively donated a grand total of $880 - earning a nice little bonus of $44 on top of that from IndieGoGo themselves. I really am enormously grateful - all the supporters of this film constantly prove that there is an appetite for the kind of documentary we're making and it's a privilege to get your vote of confidence in this most concrete of ways. And don't forget that if you didn't manage to donate this time but still want to, you can make a contribution any time at the Tenner FIlms website - just log on to http://www.tennerfilms.com and click on Donate.
The money raised on IndieGoGo will go towards a day's filming in London - and I'll of course keep you posted on how it goes. Beyond that, there are exciting behind-the-scenes developments afoot at the moment which I'll tell you all about once they've progressed a little bit further. Suffice to say, things are looking good here at Tenner Towers - and we couldn't do any of it without your support.
One other nice bit of news that reached me last night was that the latest Tenner short, Fifty Years, has been selected for this year's Document Human Rights Film Festival, taking place in Glasgow at the end of October. The full programme hasn't been published yet so I don't know the exact time or date of the screening. I'll update you once I do know but in the meantime you can find out more about the festival on their website at http://www.docfilmfest.org.uk/
Thanks again and don't forget your brolly - looks nasty out there...
