Whaddup Pre Retro team!

Hello to our new sponsors - thank you so much for your support, and welcome to the cool gang. We are now 10 quid away from hitting £900! If there's anyone you know who might be interested in Pre Retro, maybe give 'em a nudge and see if they want to take us into the wonderful world of £900+. Perhaps employ a cheeky grin. Everyone loves a cheeky grin.

In other, more festive Pre Retro news, we now have an Etsy store where you can buy a range of beautiful anti-Christmas gifts for your loved (or unloved) ones. 

A popular Christmas card example:


Go and have a little peep at what else we're offering here:

And, as always, tell your friends! There's a little bit of festive sneer in all of us, right? Anyway, I hope you're all doing well, and I'll be back with more IMPORTANT BREAKING NEWS soon.

Slowly but surely, we're getting there!

Hello Pre Retro team,

Thank you to our new sponsors! You're all rather fabulous. We're on the other side of £700 now, and fast approaching our £1,000 base line target. You are all SUPER, and we can't wait to get handing out your rewards.

With our base line target, we'll be able to pay for actors and meals, but to afford transport for all of our crew and equipment, costumes, and props, we're aiming for at least £2,000. And, with 21 days left, we can TOTALLY do it.

Something you can quickly do that will make all the difference is share this link - - on Facebook or Twitter. Or, maybe if you're kind of old school, just tell 5 friends in actual, real life!

Thanks again, people. Your help is muchas appréciated. (Yeah, I speak Spanish).

Dear Pre Retro team,

Wowzers trousers. Our crowdfunder is about to hit £600. I am SUPER grateful to anyone who's donated, or shared our page. Blown away. As it is, we are only sharing the crowdfunder with friends and family. On Monday we'll be rolling out our full launch, where we'll be contacting all of the people of the internet, and these early donations from you peeps will hugely influence their interest. So, thank you. But, there's still a long way to go - if you've got a minute, you'd make us all proper chuffed by sharing this page on your Facebooks or Twitters :)

Also, earlier this year we released two short films introducing the world to Qupid, the totalitarian dating agency that feature in Pre Retro. You can have a little peek at these videos and find out what Qupid are capable of by clicking here.

And yes, Sandra & Gary will feature in Pre Retro - the question is, what's happened to them since the last time we saw them...?
