So many beautiful gifts!!

Ahoy again from the land of film finishing! As you may already know, I'm in the final stages of finishing my first feature documentary film. Very exciting times and I'm getting so stoked for the film's release!! In an effort to raise the funds necessary to finish and release the film, I'm running an Indiegogo campaign. Because I only have 8 days left and I'm still very far from my goal, several lovely companies have offered beautiful giveaway gift packages for anyone who contributes $5 or more to the film. The list of prizes is below and here's how it works: at the end of my Indiegogo campaign in 8 days, I will put all the names of all the lovely contributors in a hat and draw 9 lucky winners. Based on the order they are chosen, each winner will have the chance to pick the prize of choice. For example, if your name is drawn first, you get first choice at one of the lovely prizes below, and so on until all the prizes have been claimed. So far, there are 40 eligible contributors to the campaign and 9 prizes, meaning currently, there's basically a 1 in 4 chance of winning something. As an added bonus, my amazing film distributor at KinoSmith and Blue Ice Docs is going to match all contributions made to the campaign, dollar-for-dollar, (up to the 20k goal) in an effort to get this film to the finish line and out into the world!

To be eligible for the draw, simply make a contribution of $5 or more here: igg.me/at/modifiedthefilm/
