Why give thanks for just one day? We feel like we’re going to need the whole week to express our gratitude for everything that’s happened with The 78 Project so far, and everything that is to come. So for the next six days we’ll be posting a 78 from our Southern Road Trip (you might even remember them from our Kickstarter campaign updates) every day and adding them to our online archive!
Star & Micey stirred up the morning air in St. Mary’s Cathedral in downtown Memphis with their Flipside, a brand new, never-before-recorded “Rocky Song,” during a harmony-filled morning session that left us all speechless.
This month of connecting with our friends, family and fans to fund our movie has been wonderful. We feel so energized by everyone’s support!
Our Kickstarter campaign to fund The 78 Project Feature Film ends Friday, October 5. We can finish strong with your help!
These next few days are your last chance to contribute to our movie fund. We’d love to have you be a part of this journey! Please go to our Kickstarter campaign page and read a little bit more about our fundraising efforts and plans for finishing the film. And donate if you can!
This movie has already exceeded our expectations, and we still have more shooting ahead! We compiled this video for our Kickstarter, made of moments from the The 78 Project web series, to give an idea of the kinds of experiences we will be finding as we shoot the film. Take a look, and if you like what we’re doing, please join in and help us continue.
So many amazing things have happened this month as a result of this community-driven funding campaign.
We had the opportunity to post four great new tracks from our adventure as updates in our campaign. You can hear Arborea‘s “Red Bird,” Ella Mae Bowen‘s flipside song “Heart Locked Out,” Timmy Mislock performing “Satan, Your Kingdom Must Come Down,” and Star & Micey‘s flipside “Rocky Song.”
Plus we’ve gotten wonderful press. Over the last two weeks our project and our Kickstarter campaign were featured in The Village Voice, USA Today’s PopCandy blog and The Awl.
Thank you truly and deeply for watching and listening and supporting The 78 Project!
