project:13 - Update #1
Hey Everybody !!!
A big Thank You to all the backers of project:13 !!!
We got off to a really good start with healthy backers support across the pledge tiers and we're encouraged by the positive reception to the project, both inside and outside of Kickstarter. So many people have given us positive comments and can't wait to see the finished product !
One of the best posts this week about the project:13 Kickstarter campaign comes from our comrade in Tokyo, Danny Choo - who clearly explains the potential for this campaign:
"What happens when an American record producer (specifically one who produces records for the likes of Elton John and k.d. lang) sets out to produce anime by teaming up with the Japanese animation house Studio 4ºC ?
If this project is a success, this could potentially change the world of anime meaning - specifically the way anime is produced and funded - usually by a production committee who's first priority is the Japanese market because the first item on the agenda is to recuperate all the costs involved.
If Greg can pull this off, it will show the world that you do not need to just consume what the anime business throws at you - you can make your own anime or have a say in what gets made. If you dont like moe anime (I personally do) and would like to see more of a variety of genres being made then maybe this crowd funding model will help you change things.
I'm personally very excited to see somebody making the leap to take on such a feat and fully support what Greg is doing and wish him the best of luck!"

What Danny says is true, we've got a big task at hand to get to our goal, but we can make it with your continued help. So, spread the word !
