“Indie Game the Movie” hits funding goal in 24 hours, final cut to be even shinier

“Indie Game the Movie” hits funding goal in 24 hours, final cut to be even shinier (photo)

It was just yesterday that the trailer for “Indie Game the Movie” premiered, accompanied by word of another Kickstarter campaign to get the finishes done on the film. Well, in an amazing show of anticipation and support for the doc, it appears that they’ve already hit their funding goal. Pajot and Swirsky sent along the following note:

It’s now been 24 hours since we launched the trailer and $35,000 Kickstarter campaign for the film. What’s transpired has totally blown us away.

In just a smidge over 24 hours, we were able to reach our Kickstarter goal. The campaign currently stands at $ 37,503 from a very generous, big-hearted crowd of 804 people. Our first Kickstarter go-around (May, 2010) saw our initial goal of $ 15,000 raised in 48 hours. We hit that mark in the first 9 hours this time.

We just wanted to say a quick word of thanks for all the coverage and support. The articles, posts and tweets were invaluable, and we really appreciate every bit of it.

Also, it’s near-impossible to communicate how grateful we are to the fans and supporters of the film. It’s quite clear that the community really wants to see this film made. And we intend to do just that.

The total raised is already ear-marked for specific post production expenses, but money raised beyond the goal mark will allow us to add to the production value and audience experience even further. We are going to be working on this thing and making it as good as it can be, right up until they pry it out of our still-editing fingers for the premiere 🙂

Over the past 24 hours, we’ve tweeted & emailed hundreds upon hundreds of ‘Thank You’s’ but it still doesn’t seem to do the trick. So, we are going to honour this fantastic demonstration of support the absolute best and honest way we know how…

…We’re going right back to work.

This news means that they’ll be able to complete the film in style and give the stories of all the featured developers the treatment they deserve. However, Pajot tells me that they’re still looking for a distributor so if any IFC readers have the hook-up, head over to indiegamethemovie.com and drop them a line. Hopefully, it won’t be long before we can see the fruits of Swirsky and Pajot’s labors.

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosĂ©.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
