People familiar with our Filipino food truck, the PAO Truck, are aware that we are no stranger to Kickstarter and the challenges a campaign entails. Today we want to tell you about a great Kickstarter called Manileños, a film by the Filipino Street Art Project, that is hitting its deadline soon on Friday, November 7th, 2014 at 11:00PM.
The goal of this campaign is to support Filipino street artists in return for original works from Manila, all while contributing to a social cause. The Kickstarter goal is $15,000 and is currently passing $11,700 as of November 2nd, 2014. Pledges can be as low as possible with a wide-variety of rewards available.
The film is 75% complete and the $15,000 budget will support travel and completion of the film, post-production, Kickstarter fees/reward fulfillment, community engagement, festival fees, and a round of DVD duplication. If you cannot donate to their campaign, another way to help them is to share their Kickstarter campaign with your friends and family, any donation will help them get closer to their goal.
