I Dream of Wires' IndieGoGo fund raising - 2 weeks left

Post by s o l v e n t » Wed Feb 22, 2012 11:10 am

Hi - just a heads up: We now have less than two weeks left in our 2nd run of IndieGoGo fund raising. In this round we've raised another $8G, putting our grand total at $24G so far!

We haven't yet decided whether this will be our last round or not, but most likely it will be, so if you are planning to contribute, now is the time. Also note - we have sold half of the DVD-R BOXSETs ["Hand-assembled and signed, containing full unedited interviews, plus hours of bonus content, some exclusive to this set. Limited to 50 numbered copies"] - if you want to own one of these, they will only be available to purchase through this IndieGoGo campaign.

Not exactly -- but we've just had a designer sign on to do graphics for the film, so the TShirt will be based on his designs... He worked at Peter Saville Designs during the '80s, was the head designer for OMD's Architecture & Morality, amongst others, and currently is part of a firm whose clients include the likes of Apple, Microsoft, and Coca Cola... My point being, it'll be good!

Gah! This slid under my radar - as I was working a 'worthless job' and had 'no money' when it was announced and in the shift, things have changed... but I committed a bunch of money to another fundraiser that will ream me out in a few days.

If I could slide money under the table at a later date... or even if I could commit 'some' now and 'more' later... in an alley?
:hihi:

Addendum: I just read the original post in here - so I apologize if that was in 'poor taste'. I did just contribute what I can and I do look forward to seeing the finished product. :tu:

Booo I had no internet access for over a week up here in the mountains because of the wind. I really hope you do one more round I really wanted to contribute.

Excellent job and congrats.

P.S. can I just paypal my contribution or something?

This isn't related to IDOW (and I'm not putting the pressure on you lads) but I just damn near had a heart attack.

So I plopped in a large sum for Round 3, figuring that when the end-date of the campaign was reached, it would have been taken from my credit card account. You know, like how Kickstarter functions.

However, my bank statement already shows the removal of the pledged funds. I really didn't expect this. Perhaps this is how IndieAGoGo works - but be warned, folks. They mention it here:

Now, nobody ask me to buy a damn thing for a while. I'm going to swear off the For Sale forum for ... a while.

What happens now if you didn't make the funding goal? Will I still get a DVD and a t-shirt in the mail eventually?

I was happy to contribute.

sorry for the shocker... this is indeed how IndieGoGo works, and it is different from Kickstarter

yes absolutely.

from the IndieGoGo write-up:

"It should also be noted that the film will be completed regardless of the fundraising outcome - so if you contribute to this IndieGoGo fundraising campaign, you will receive the gift/perk that you paid for, guaranteed!"

appreciate the contribution!
