With just two days until the finish line, it looks like The Oatmeal Man Indiegogo campaign won’t quite reach its original goal of $10,500. The good news is, it has hit its DVD milestone, which means that while we haven’t raised enough funds to get the film onto Netflix, iTunes, Redbox, etc. just yet, our contributors will be getting their shiny, limited edition, two-disc DVD sets come July. A humongous thank-you to each and every one of our honorary Oates who joined the campaign, rallied our high-fiber cause, or otherwise supported this silly little tale about a humble cereal killer and his unsuspecting victims. You rawk.
The movie’s a hard sell; we knew that going in. Manclam, at least, has scientific value. But an oatmeal man? Come on. No one likes oatmeal. To be honest, I didn’t think we’d even get $100—so, it’s a pleasant surprise that we’ve made it this far. Again, props to our backers. And for those who aren’t able to contribute this time around, hang tight: we’re still working on finding a distributor for a wider DVD release in the not-too-distant future.
As there is still a little sand left in the hourglass (two days, as of this writing), here are some links for any last-minute contributors:
- Contribute to The Oatmeal Man Indiegogo campaign—ignore the ridiculous $10,500 campaign goal; we only need to make it to the $4k mark to get onto Netflix, iTunes, etc.
- Watch the official trailer / the opening scene (language / graphic violence warning)
- Follow The Oatmeal Man on Twitter / like us on Facebook
Lastly, don’t forget to eat your oatmeal. ;)
