A HAPPY Update!
By Roko Belic

Kickstarter has been the main social networking tool for this movie. After initial funding, the filmmaker Roko raised another $33,000 for post-production through Kickstarter.

Here's a little bit about what's been going on with the film and the Happy world in general! We're making excellent progress (thanks to all of you) and we hope to have further updates down the line as the film creeps ever closer to completion.
- Music Composing/Graphics and Animation: Nearing completion! We'll be posting some cool video blogs about this soon, and maybe some other things too!

- Sound Mix and Color Correction: Getting ready to start it up! We're looking around for some good places and we'll update everyone when this is happening...it's the final step of the movie!

In addition to almost being finished, HAPPY has been featured prominently in the media. Here are some of the things we've been getting into...

CNN - World One
Roko got to talk a week ago on this CNN program about the film. Check out the video at CNN.com!

The New York Times
Roko was mentioned (and featured in a great picture!) in the New York Times Business section a few weeks ago. If you haven't read the article yet it's a great piece on happiness.

We've only come this far with your help, and with your continuing support, we can make HAPPY known across the world! Keep it up and keep telling your friends and family about us. Also stay tuned for updates on your rewards, too, which we're in the process of organizing right now. Please note that those people who requested DVDs of the film will naturally have to wait until we are done with the film, but we're working as quickly as possible to ensure you get a copy soon!

Much happiness to all of you,
The HAPPY Team
