Firstly I want to say- THANK YOU TO ALL THE BACKERS OF THIS PROJECT!!!!
I learned alot from this experience and feel it was really helpful to my own understanding of Crowd Funding Projects. Since we didn't reach our goal of $5,000- we will not get a penny from this campaign (neither will Kickstarter).Your accounts will not be charged and as of right now you have not pre-ordered the DVD nor will backers from this campaign be listed on websites or in the film credits. I want to make this clear, because a few people have e-mailed me saying to "just keep the money even if we don't reach goal, etc." Though that is very kind, I can not do that. Kickstarter only funds projects that reach goal and Amazon processes the money, not me.
I also want to say Kickstarter and Indie Go-Go are awesome websites and resources for film makers, authors and creative people to fund their projects. Please look at these sites and fund interesting projects if you can. I do every month. The arts are important, especially in these chaotic and uncertain times.
Currently Rats & Gassers: Kustom Kulture Takes A Ride is in full production. That has not changed. I expect the film to be in festivals by the end of this year. I also firmly believe that this will be the most successful film I have ever made. My last two B-Movies have done extremely well, literally re-birthing the Hot Rod Film Genre. The difference with Rats & Gassers is, being a documentary, more festival doors will be open to this film. The Average Joe, who might not like Hot Rod B-Movies, may really take an interest in Rat Rods and Gassers and the people directly involved with building them and the kulture.
