Hi all,

The Gooseberry artists have a message :)

Current Grand Total for the funding is 550k USD. Getting so much money is already amazing - a world record for animation crowdfunding - but it's still quite far away from our real target. We really would need to add 3 times more subscribers to make this project feasible!

We still have 8 days left though, and I'm full of energy to get the press and attention from half the internet so everyone knows what we do! 

What you could help with is:

- Keep tweeting, facebooking, liking, forumposting, and sharing the project everywhere.
- Check with companies or studios who might want to become Bronze or Silver credit sponsor.
- Tell everyone you can just leave a pledge (promise) now, no payment is needed until we reach the goal.
- Inspire some other people to join the Blender Cloud or to pledge :)

Whatever happens though - I'd like to confirm that we're fully committed to everyone who already supported us. We're not going to let you down! The Blender Cloud is there to stay. The EU media subsidy (200k) for an "open production environment" will be invested anyway. And even with "only" 2150 subscribers, it is giving us sufficient revenues to do great things already. I have a good "plan B" ready, but I hope you accept to only discuss that with you when it's needed. Focus is on winning this! 

Thanks on behalf of the Gooseberry teams,
