With only 7 days left, it doesn’t look like we are going to make our goal and since this is an “all or nothing” campaign, those who generously contributed will not be charged on October 25th.

Therefore we would like to ask those who did contribute to still make their contribution through Paypal. You can do this after the campaign ends once you receive notice from Kickstarter.

Please use our email address to make your contributions – gatolocofilms@gmail.com

The rewards you chose will still apply. Thank you!
