Here on the west coast, it's 7pm at night. In Austin, Texas it's 9pm, where our incredible editor is finishing up the final touches of our kickstarter video so we can launch it tomorrow, the 1st day of 2011.
The creative folks at Sang Arts worked their butts off to get our movie logo done in time, and they're currently working on the website (www.lockedinagarageband.com) as I type this. They're in Chicago - also 9pm on NYE. I really hope they're at least having a pint or glass of champagne while they work.
I'm drinking my first glass of wine to bring in the new year, thinking of how frikkin' incredible this whole process has been. It's only a teaser - not even the whole movie! But it was wicked-fun, and I just know you're going to love it (please, please, please love it!), and I'm feeling really awesome about using kickstarter to raise $20 000 for the cost of production in April, 2011.
Here we go folks! Hello 2011. Hello Locked in a Garage Band - from pre-production, to production in April to a finished film by September 2011. Hello, incredibly talented, positive, super-amazing folks that love people like us following our dreams & making movies from scratch. YES. If 2011 is anything like this moment in time, then it's going to be a really, really great year.
Happy New Year!
