Yesterday (May 20th) we had a remarkable day.
We were extremely lucky to have been backed (by a single backer) to the tune of £2,500! That one pledge equating to 10% of our entire budget and puts us that amount closer to reaching our goal of £25,000.
We now stand at £21,541, 86% funded from 385 backers with 11 days to go!
Also, in the build up to next weekend's massive 3 day SuperStrongStyle16 weekender at PROGRESS, starting today we will be releasing a brand new pledge perk everyday until next Thursday and a new video everyday until next Friday. Oh and a brand spanking new trailer on Monday 22nd! Nice.
Here's a couple of our wrestler appeal videos where they tell us (and you) why this film is important to them.
After just 8 days of our Kickstarter campaign we are 64% funded already!!!
On the first day of our campaign alone we hit a monumental figure of £8,800! 8 days later we are +£16k funded with 325+ generous backers delving into their pockets for some amazing rewards in return.
We saw some of our incredible exclusive rewards get snapped up in record time too.
Thank you one and all for liking, sharing, pledging and supporting us. Together, we can get there.
Kickstarter is an all-or-nothing campaign so if you keep telling people and pledging toward our film, we'll keep our end of the bargain and make the best feature documentary we possibly can. Plus we'll probably launch a few more exclusive rewards along the way too...
We are extraordinarily thrilled to announce that our Kickstarter campaign is now live!

With about 6 months of planning and a whole heap of exciting (and some very exclusive) rewards finally collated, we have finally arrived at launch day. And we’re announcing it via our new, snazzy blog. Looks alright doesn’t it?
I thought I’d just say a couple of words to the extent of, a huge thank you to all of the people who have asked/pleaded/nagged/demanded that we turn our lovely little short documentary into a feature length documentary. Without you watching, sharing and telling all your friends and family about what we’ve done (with basically no budget!) we wouldn’t be here in this position today talking to you about the fact we’re making this feature! It’s genuinely one of the biggest reasons why we’ve been able to justify embarking down the (quite expensive) road of getting a film about PROGRESS Wrestling into cinemas.
Well, the other reason being one that's quite important: we really really REALLY want to make this film as we see it being something to not only entertain you, but to inform and move you emotionally.
So let’s briefly talk about our super Kickstarter campaign…
We need to raise £25,000 between May 1st and May 31st 2017 so we can have the funds available to finish our feature documentary to the extremely high standards we have set. Kickstarter's rules are strict and simple: if we do not raise £25k in that time-frame we get NOTHING!
We have an incredible team hard at work on bringing this film to you and we've got some of the best rewards going. Here's a sample of some of the awesome rewards you get in return for your generous pledges.
We’ll use this blog to keep you aware of any news, production goings on and also feature some guest blogs from time-to-time.
For now though, have a look through our wonderful (if I do say so myself) Kickstarter campaign page and see if anything takes your fancy. Remember it is all-or-nothing so we need to hit £25k. Help us in contributing toward the incredible PROGRESS legacy and adding your voice to ours to realise 'THIS.IS.PROGRESS'.
All the best,
Dale Beaumont-Brown, Producer/Director
