1,812 individuals contributed between $1 and $1600 to make the 17-minute short film that you see on this site. I promised each and every one of them that their names would appear on IMDb as an official producer of the film.
Well, for the past month, I have been inputting as many names as I could, only getting through about 600 entries as I cut and pasted each person individually into the clunky IMDb interface.
Then two of those 1,812 people saw one of my progress updates on Twitter and offered to help.
Sarah Bloom and Dean Simmer — thank you. You turned a months-long process into a days long process. Within a week, we were able to input the rest of the batch. You helped me keep my promise, and I am forever grateful.
I am happy to report that every one who contributed to the short (NOT the feature length, which is still in production) has been entered into IMDb. If you contributed to the short, chances are you’ll see your name there now. But if not, it takes anywhere from 24 hours to a week for IMDb to verify all the names.
When that happens, you can see your name in all its glory here:

Thank you, producers. Every one.
