Hello there Kickstarters!
The funding has all come through and in two weeks I’ll be able to access it. As I mentioned in my last update, I’ve already ordered my new camera and software and hope to have everything by early May. I’m really excited about upgrading my equipment. Thank you so much for making this possible.
In the next couple days I’ll be putting together some surveys to get the information I need from you so that I can get you your rewards. Below is a rough timeline of upcoming milestones for the completion of “Robots!” and when you can expect your rewards.
- I post the full version of part 3: “ROBOphelia vs. Grabbor”
- I order lots of Pinchbot pieces
- Silver Bullet Press does a test run of the posters
- Set building begins on part 4:“Robots, Robots, Robots!”
- I start working on the minifigs representations of the $100 backers
End of this month
- I ship Pinchbots to all the $6 reward level backers
- I ship posters to all the $50 and up reward levels
- My new camera arrives and I configure it and my new software
- Part 4 is finished and posted online
- YouTube NextUp winners are announced (fingers crossed)
- Work begins on part 5: “The End of Sports”
- Part 5 is where $100 backer minifigs will begin having cameos
- Part 5 is finished and posted online
- Work begins on part 6: “Police Show: K0P-3R” (more cameos)
- Part 6 is finished and posted online
- Work begins on part 7: “The Orange-Green Wars Continues” (final cameos)
- Part 7 is finished and posted online – “Robots!” is complete!
- I build master DVD and ship it off to be duplicated
- DVDs, pinchbots, and minifigs ship to all appropriate backers.
This schedule is subject to change, if I am a winner of YouTube NextUp, I will hopefully be able to accelerate this timeline, but also please bear with me if there are any delays. I will keep you updated throughout the process.
Yours, David M Pickett
