Laying it all on the line

I’ve come to realize that I don’t like asking for help. I don’t like asking for things in general.

I’m independent like that.

So this Kickstarter Fundraiser has been a huge thing for me.

I guess I should give a little background for you.

If you’ve followed my blog  for a while, you’ll know that 3 of my best friends took a 3 month journey across the country, calling it “Further Along The Road“. When they traveled, they took an iPhone 4S and a GoPro and filmed their journey. Well, then they came back, and we began watching clips. It’s taken a long time, but we’ve finally finished watching clips. And then we ran into a problem.

We ran out of hard drive space.

And we have no backup.

And we don’t have good mics.

Ok, it was more that one problem. And none of them have solutions I can do myself. I don’t have the equipment to make it work. I don’t have much in the way of  money. So I was going to have to ask for help.

I saw this problem coming down the road as we were watching clips initially, but I was so scared and hate asking for help so much that I kept putting it off until it was literally show stopping for us. We can’t do anything else until we have the equipment.

So, I decided to punch fear in the face, talked to the guys, and we decided to launch a Kickstarter fundraiser. Why? Because it allows people we don’t see in person often to get behind it. And those who support us can get some great stuff for it. Like a digital download, DVD, Blu-Ray, interviews, songs written about whatever topic they want, art  drawn for them, appearance in the credits, etc.

So, now I have to do what I hate and ask for help. Your help. We can’t do this without you. We have 14 days left in our fundraiser, and we have 38% of it funded. We can make it. But we need you.

Contribute.

Every little bit helps.
