The good folks at 1967beetle.com had a post today where there was a link to "The Bug Movie". Thought I'd share the link so everyone could enjoy:

The bus movie was awesome! I can only imagine that the Bug movie will be equally great! Come on everybody lets kick down to get this project off the ground. The kick starter trailer is pretty sweet.

I just watched the trailer and it does look sweet. I can't wait to see the movie. I got the information about it through the emails from Chris Vallone at classicvwbugs.com. If you dont get these emails they are pretty cool so sign up for them. But anyway i cannot wait to see this movie so we all need to support it.

Awesome! Smile

P.S. I actually upgraded my own pledge yesterday, so you might see me in the Associate Producer credits. Cool

The Kickstarter campaign made it! From Damon's update:

Quote:
We did it!! You did it!!!! Thank you!!!!! We've hit our goal! You all are so amazing, I can't thank you enough. Your generosity, your encouragement, your comments to us on Facebook, on Kickstarter and in direct emails, have been a huge motivation to keep a positive attitude especially during our long "plateau" in the middle of the campaign. Your love for old VW's and belief in this project has made it REAL.
