What happens next?
Dear supporters of Offscreen Magazine,
Putting an idea out there on Kickstarter is a thrilling experience. In the last 30 days we were nothing short of amazed about the support from so many different people that provided us with helpful feedback, encouraging comments and, of course, generous pledges.
Just a few days before the end of our funding period, we are still one third short of the amount we are trying to raise. Admittedly, it's tough to realise that maybe our idea hasn't reached as many people as we expected. It also became clear that trying to launch a new print magazine from scratch through Kickstarter comes with some potential problems.
With all the feedback and ideas coming in, we've made various changes to our initial concept over the past 4 weeks. Setting up the project page on Kickstarter, we wanted to provide as many details on the magazine as possible. On the other hand, disclosing detailed specs limits our ability to change things as we go along and potentially leave some backers disappointed later on.
We are very happy with the reactions so far and believe that there is still a place for Offscreen even without successful funding through Kickstarter.
That's why we decided to go ahead and work on Offscreen issue #1—either way! We've been busy setting up guidelines, refining our content plan and this coming week, we'll begin with conducting our first interviews.
And here's the important part: since Kickstarter only allows us to contact our backers directly if the funding was successful, we need to make sure that we can reach all of you through a different channel.
If you would like to be notified when Offscreen #1 is available for pre-order through our website (early next year), please make sure you do one of the following:
We'll be publishing regular updates on Twitter and Facebook and we'll get you guys involved as much as possible, so your input is still shaping the first issue!
We are really excited about our magazine and hope you are too! You can still support us by spreading the word and directing people to our (redesigned) temporary website www.offscreenmag.com
And thanks again for your continuous support!
