'Rapture Us' reaches fundraising goal

Posted By on Fri, Oct 26, 2012 at 1:38 PM


You'll recall that the Times spoke with local writer and filmmaker Levi Agee last week about the realities of raising money to make a movie.

Agee's "Rapture Us" had been accepted by the nonprofit crowd-funding site USA Projects, seeking to raise $1,750 by Nov. 1. As of a few minutes ago, Agee had raised $2,489, meaning he'll get to keep the money pledged by donors.

You can still donate to the campaign here. After all, while Agee has raised the minimum amount necessary to make "Rapture Us," additional money never hurt a film. Except maybe "Waterworld."
