A note from the makers of Lefty Loosey Righty Tighty

As it so happens, shortly after I posted today’s news update, I received an update from the Lefty Loosey makers (sent to everyone who enrolls on their website), which reads:

Dear Lefty Loosey supporters:

We are thrilled to announce that the new website for "Lefty Loosey Righty Tighty" is now live!

Please go to www.leftylooseymovie.com to watch the teaser trailer for the film and get updated film information. You can also view our funding progress here: http://leftylooseymovie.com/contribute.html

Also, be sure to also follow us on Twitter and Facebook for up-to-the-minute updates and fun film facts:

We sincerely appreciate all of your support! You are all wonderful!
We hope you enjoy the new site and the trailer!

Best,
Team Lefty

Incidentally, on their contribution page, they report that they have raised $15,700 to date from 94 backers (an average of $167!), which exceeds their “minimum goal”. Having learned just how enthusiastic this fanbase is, they have astutely added a secondary goal of $25,000.

As they say later on on the page:

As you can see, our minimum goal has been reached! Which means that the film will get finished. But as we mentioned during the first stage of fund raising, 15k is the bare bones version of the finished film. These additional funds will not only help us to get the movie finished sooner, it will enable us to put those necessary finishing touches on the project. This includes visual FX, audio sweetening, color correction, and title sequence animation as well as the ability to increase our festival submissions….and even pay for a small theatrical release.

Rumors put the release date as early summer 2011, but this is not by any means confirmed.
