Hey Fellow Chasers!
Well thank you so much for all your support, contributions, and the belief in this film. Last night, at the conclusion of our 47 day IndieGoGo campaign we raised $5610. We want to post a thank you video today, but it will have to wait until later this week because today our production crew heads to Montreal to start filming our next round of interviews, this time at the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).
Tomorrow, Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield is riding a Soyuz rocket to the International Space Station (ISS) and we were invited to the CSA media event starting bright and early tomorrow morning. Chris Hadfield will be the first Canadian to take command of the ISS. We’re really excited for this opportunity and we wish Chris all the best as he chases after his dream. You can watch the entire event beginning at 6:45am (EST) on the CSA’s live webcast:
Thank you again. All of this is made possible by you, our generous friends. Stay tuned for more information on twitter, our Facebook page, or our website.
God Speed, Atlantis!
The crew of Chasing Atlantis
Hey fellow Chasers! We’re on our last few hours of our IndieGoGo campaign. So far we have raised $5265. Help us reach $5500. We’re almost there!
Your contributions go a long way for us to get key interviews and footage necessary for our film. SPOILER ALERT: These funds are already enabling our production team to head to Montreal for a series of interviews at the Canadian Space Agency; but more of that to come in tomorrow’s blog post!
And just remember if you SHARE our campaign link with your friends (heck even your enemies) you could win a ticket for a chance to go to space. Who wouldn’t want a chance to go to space.
Check out our previous blog post to find out more info about this:
We just updated the site to include our “CAST” page that can be found here https://chasingatlantis.wordpress.com/the-cast/
The page gives a sampling of the interviews that we have conducted to date. Going through the list to see just how many incredible people we have had the pleasure of meeting was a great way to reflect on everything that has transpired since we left to go see Atlantis’ launch. When we first set out on the journey, I don’t think we realized just how many interviews we would end up conducting both formal as well as spontaneous. The whole project has been worth it for this experience alone; a chance to meet astronauts, actors, writers, engineers, inventors and dreamers.
This update to the site is part of an overhaul to the IndieGoGo campaign page to help us have the strongest last week as we possibly can! If you haven’t already seen our fundraising campaign through IndieGoGo, check us out at www.indiegogo.com/chasingatlantis
