Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Indiegogo campaign.

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sound-of-the-surf/

We reached the funding goal in 7 days! I'm deeply encouraged that so many people have stuck by my side in the face of challenges.

With this first level of funding I can pay off Getty Images and prep for the final edit in Feb using the higher quality images. Last year I signed a commitment with Getty for all the remaining needs of the film. For example, a photo of the Beatles, Martin Luther King, or Duane Eddy, etc. Immediately after signing I had an investor renege on his pledge and then COVID hit shortly after.

Again, I can't begin to explain how your support has kept the project alive and moving forward. After the Kickstarter I changed the focus from 'selling DVDs' to 'Producing' and the community stepped right up to the plate with numerous Producers kicking in.

Thanks, Tom

I just made my pledge again, at Indiegogo, after the Kickstarter campaign pooped out. There have been more updates about this project on Facebook than here at good ole' SG101, but I thought I'd pass along this FB post in case anyone is interested:

Reminder: The Indiegogo campaign officially ends tomorrow, Friday 1/8/21. There is a lot going on behind the scenes, all good, but I will update you with the next steps this weekend. The funds you have provided are being put to good use. Had a death in the family on New Years so I'm a bit behind in communications. Link to campaign is in comments below. Thanks, Tom

I pledged a few days ago, again through an intermediary, because I still have no credit card. I wish there would have been more (or at least an equal number of) people contributing than in the Kickstarter, but there are probably solid "real world reasons" behind that. (I guess we will see WTB adds for the bonus disc from people, who lost track of the project, very soon...)

That being said, I'm convinced Tom will give us a great film and seeing the film is one of the things in 2021 that I really look forward to!

Los Apollos - interplanetary surf music trio (Berlin)
"Chaos at the Lobster Lounge" available as LP and download on Surf Cookie Records!
"Postcards from the Scrapyard" Vol. 1 & 2 NOW available on soundcloud and other platforms!

Thank you Simoncoil and Tim for your support and getting the word out.

The difference between the Kickstarter and Indiegogo is I didn't want to focus on selling discs with Indiegogo. Most of the Kickstarter pledges came from selling discs.

The IG campaign received a MUCH higher quality of pledges from Producers, not quantity of plastic. Selling DVDs online is something I can continue to do through my website, without paying IG to host it.

Besides, selling plastic is another science altogether. It directly correlates to the amount of advertising dollars spent. Better to be done closer to the delivery date with publicity in place in one large push.

Thanks again, Tom

I wish I could have done more. Will there be a future opportunity to help with other expenses down the road?

Thanks Noel, I greatly appreciate your help.

Yes, the fundraising continues. The Indiegogo has kicked into "IN DEMAND" mode, basically means the campaign is alive until I quit IG. Probably until I get the SotS website e-commerce up and running which is soon.

I've removed the digital download option and also the single movie disc as well. The only way to order the movie right now is in combination with the Bonus disc (More Reverb Captain) or above. This will continue until the 500 Bonus disc limit is reach.

Contributions above and beyond are always an option if you want to contact me directly, including sponsorships, co-promotion, Producer levels, etc.

Thanks again. Editing is progressing very nicely.
