Vancouver-based Icycle.ca productions ltd is pleased to announce the successful completion of its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise $10,000 CAD for its documentary Running On Climate.

A total of $10,286 CAD was pledged by 121 backers by the close of the campaign at 9.42am on 24th May 2014.

Producer-director Robert Alstead said:

“This was our first attempt at a crowdfunding campaign and we had limited time and resources to plan for it so we started with a relatively modest goal. We are really pleased to have hit our target and find it particularly encouraging that we attracted a good number of backers - 121 backers - for the project. We are immensely grateful to everyone who helped make this happen - those who backed the campaign and who helped promote the campaign. Every little bit counted. The Kickstarter campaign has already helped us reach a wider audience and thanks to our backers we can now go on to make an even more compelling documentary and expand that audience further.”
