Happy Friday, MSTie pals! Lesley here with another thrilling MST3K & MIGIZI fundraising update.
Because you’re all incredibly generous ANIMALS brimming with enthusiasm for the promise of new MST3K, I’m delighted to announce that we met our fundraising goal of $20,000 within a couple hours of the Comic-Con@Home MST3K panel going live (in case you missed it, you can still watch the panel here). This means you have locked in TWO new shorts to be riffed by Joel, J. Elvis, and Bill in their former roles as Joel, Tom Servo, and Crow.
As I mentioned yesterday, the first short this crew of veteran professionals will be riffing is called “A Busy Day at the County Fair.”
Since we’ve surpassed the second goal, I can now reveal the name of the second short: “Behind the Scenes at the Supermarket.”
As of this writing, the fundraiser has passed $25k and is still going strong! We’ve got 29 days left on the clock, so we encourage you to keep donating to help MIGIZI rebuild. Remember that donating not only helps an organization do meaningful work, it also gets you VIP access to the streaming premiere of both new shorts! Win/win! Eventually the shorts will also be available here on mst3k.org for everyone to see, but you can be among the FIRST and the envy of all your friends.
We’re aiming to have the two new shorts done by the fall—and no, that doesn’t mean the day after Labor Day, nor does it mean exactly on the Autumn Equinox. Don’t try to pin us down; we’re the wind, baby. Know that we are as excited to make these new mini shows as you are to watch them, and we’re working on getting it done to your (and our) usual high standards.
We at MST3K want to offer a heartfelt thanks to all of you who have donated and/or shared this fundraiser, and helped us support MIGIZI in their mission to nurture the development of Native American youth. Let’s keep the momentum going!
