I'm writing with some disappointing news. After running into a string of several large challenges, we have decided to suspend the production of Family Plot indefinitely.
This may seem like an abrupt choice, but we have actually been discussing it for a few weeks now and have decided that there isn't enough momentum to finish the project with the level of quality we feel is acceptable.
The challenges we are facing mostly relate to scheduling and locations, and they are problems that could potentially be overcome with more more money, but we are also finding that the economy of the past two years has not been the best environment for fundraising and we are not gaining enough traction with kickstarter.
We are ending the kickstarter campaign immediately and all pledges will be cancelled. If you donated directly, we will be contacting you to refund your contribution.
While this isn't the most fun way to end a project, it is not uncommon with independent film and we feel very resolved about the decision. We had a blast and learned a lot.
We sincerely appreciate all of your support, both financially and otherwise. Your investment in the process means a lot to us. We hope that you will continue to support us in the future and we'll keep you posted on upcoming projects.
