Hey friends,

Just a quick note to ask you to please check out the movie my friend Phoebe has been working on by Portland director Andy Blubaugh called The Adults In the Room. http://theadultsintheroommovie.com/

After an inspiring, compelling and exhausting ride, this tiny budget feature film is going to festivals and getting great press. However, they need to raise that last little bit of cash to do the final finishing for the film and to keep the festival momentum going.

They've been able to be a part of this really cool "crowd-funding" project online. It's called Kickstarter, and it basically works like this: What if we all put in $25 (or even just $5) a pop to make my movie, then your movie, then her movie? Well, then we'd all get to make movies! The idea is to have lots and lots of backers at smaller levels than the typical investor model. They only have 18 days left to go, as Kickstarter sets a time limit. Basically, it's this all-or-nothing campaign where people pledge to support the film, but if we don't meet the goal, then the funding is canceled.

You can see their Kickstarter page here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/goodyerin/the-adults-in-the-room-documentary

50 backers have gotten them over the hump- the halfway mark. Kickstarter allows them to offer gifts to their supporters, and many folks have been thrilled to be able to kind of "pre-purchase" a DVD of the film and a DVD of Blubaugh's other films. As a result, they are just $2988 away from completing the campaign as a success and being able to completely finish the film!

Please, take a look, take a listen. This film represents the effort of many folks giving it their all and the entire team could use some encouragement, maybe just by you becoming a fan, leaving a note or donating a few dollars to help them finish the project through Kickstarter.
