It’s been a long month of fundraising for this project on Kickstarter, and now we are down to our last three days. Some of you joined us for the dance party at Cattivo, celebrating our launch, hosted by the Awesome DJ Kelly A, some were listening to our short segment on the Saturday Light Brigade, some saw our beautiful full-spread ad designed by the talented Marjorie Rishel in the program for Undercroft Opera’s Don Giovanni, and some of you tuned in to our Twitch live stream last Saturday, featuring the endlessly entertaining Bonnie Bogovich and her cache of chickens. Many of you heard about us through friends, and many from one of us directly. To everyone who has been following us and especially to our Kickstarter backers, we want to express our most sincere gratitude.

This project is so much more than a film to us, it is a mission, a revival, and a different way forward for an art that is so affecting and has so much to offer. We hope that others will continue striving to revitalize opera through modern storytelling and film.

Going into our last three days, I am filled with peace, because even though we are still far from our goal, every single person who has pledged to this project has strengthened my resolve that this is a worthwhile endeavor. We toured some locations yesterday, and have decided to continue with pre-production, and even if it involves scaling the original vision, we will never compromise the original intention.

We hope that you will join us in making our last three days memorable.

With great affection,

Liz Rishel
