Thanks to all of you, The Burden has reached its initial Kickstarter goal of $50,000! We couldn't have done this without you, and I am humbled by your incredible support. Because we reached the goal, we will receive the funds you pledged and the film can be finished. The campaign is still open until tomorrow, and we are announcing a stretch goal to help fund the next phase.
Now that we can finish the film, we need to make sure audiences see it. We have assembled a powerful marketing team to take The Burden to festivals, and seek distribution. All of this costs money, and every penny we can get buys us that much more promotion. If we can raise an additional $15,000 in ourKickstarter campaign before it closes tomorrow, all backers will receive a signed CD of the film's soundtrack, in addition to any perk already purchased.
This is a one-of-a-kind gift of music created by the talented John Cabán for The Burden, featuring unique string orchestras assembled specifically for this project. You've heard this music throughout each of the video updates I've posted during the campaign, and you will not find any of this original score anywhere else.
Please spread the word and help us reach our stretch goal! Thank you very much for all you have done so far, and for being one of The Burden's most ardent supporters.
With deepest gratitude,
Producer/ Director, The Burden
