All Backer Surveys have been sent out! Check your inbox!
4 months ago – Thu, Jan 17, 2019 at 10:59:20 PM

After a successful "Smoke Test" (and we saw no smoke) we've just now sent out all the backer surveys so you can finalize any options (such as t-shirt size and color, DVD or Blu-ray, and double-check your shipping address), as well as add-on anything else you might want to share with friends.

Please check your email and let us know if you didn't get an invite to our Backer Survey.

Meanwhile, the work continues. We've sent the full edit to the composer so he can  finish the final elements and timing for the music, we're getting all the element lists together for the animator, and editing the final script so we can hit the recording studio to lay down our narration.

Stay tuned for more updates!

And thank you for your support!

The First Backer Surveys Are Out!
4 months ago – Wed, Jan 16, 2019 at 01:07:54 AM

We just sent out our first batch of Backer Surveys. This is what is called a "Smoke Test" - 5% of our backers will get a survey, and we'll be able to see if there are any problems with it. We've been checking and re-checking to make sure the surveys have all the rewards and options for each reward level, but there are almost always those things that are left out. So, 5% of you will receive a survey soon. Once we see if there are any problems, we'll fix 'em, and then send out the rest of the surveys in the next few days.

Meanwhile, we continue to have no fun while we work on finishing the film, which is, of course, very fun for us! So, yes, we're having fun (just of the filmmaking kind). No time for normal fun.

Thanks to all of you - you're making our "fun" possible. We can't wait to show you the finished movie!

We should be getting ready for New Year's Eve celebrations, but instead we're working up some animation templates in After Effects for the covering footage.

Have a very safe and fun NEW YEAR everyone!

We'll see you on the other side.

First Stretch Goal Reached! "Emergence of Blackmoor" Poster
5 months ago – Mon, Dec 24, 2018 at 11:13:34 PM

We will now be sending the "Emergence of Blackmoor" Poster to anyone that pledged at the $25 level or higher.  Thanks Everybody!

Also, if you aren't sure about pledging at a high level, just $5 dollars gets your foot in the door, because we use Backer-Kit.  It allows you to do add ons even after the KS is done.  

More on this poster here.

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

Less than 16 hours to go! We're busy "baking" those Christmas Day drafts
5 months ago – Mon, Dec 24, 2018 at 09:24:51 PM

That isn't the smell of cookies burning in the oven - it's our computers running at 100% while they "bake" the Christmas Day movie drafts. If you've pledged anything at $5 or higher, expect an email in your inbox tomorrow with your very own code to watch the "Story Drafts" of either the 24 Minute "Braunstein section" or the whole movie. 

Please make sure to add "" as an allowed email in your settings so the message does not end up in your spam folder.

Once we get your contact info at the campaign's end, we'll be compiling the list and blasting out the codes.

Our Backer Survey will happen on the 15th of January. 

We hope that all of you have a safe and Happy Holiday!
