Added Video, New Art, More Coverage, With Surprises To Come!
As March closes out we're happy to say there are now over 125 contributors to our project, with us cresting $7,000 in contributions as we write this update. Obviously that still leaves us with a steep hill to climb as we enter April, but the last few days have shown contributions gaining serious momentum. With all the fun stuff and cool surprises we've got up our scaly sleeves, we're confident well be roaring with joy by the end of this Kickstarter project!
As many awesome things as have left to unveil, the need for help from each and every one of our contributors can not be overstated! We need you to help us get this out there so please make sure you're sharing this on your Facebook (as often as the patience of your friends will allow) and be sure to message anyone you think would be especially excited for some live-action dinosaur action. Don't forget to Tweet it, Tumble it, Upvote it, Pin in, Instagram it, Stumble it - every little bit helps!
Now for the fun stuff.
New OLD MURDER HOUSE Video...
We put together this short exploration of the history Old Murder House Theatre from our humble back-porch beginnings staging the very first "Jurassic Park Play" (documented here), all the way through selling out an ice skating rink across several nights for "Aliens: On Ice!" Check it out...
You can keep up with Old Murder House and the JP Tour project on our Facebook page.
New Poster Tease...
We'll be unveiling a full poster for the tour very soon -- the one you'll receive as a limited-edition, signed print at the $100 level -- but we don't want to leave you hanging too long, so here's a tease of the hand-painted poster by troupe member Nathan Sakulich.
You'll also notice a few fun images from the poster adorning the Kickstarter page itself, so be on the lookout...
Storming The Media...
As you can see on the front of the Kickstarter page that -- along with our WIRED coverage in the latest print issue -- we've gotten a stupendous amount of coverage from great blogs. We're proud to have gotten ink at/in Movies, CHUD, The Austin Chronicle, Screen Invasion, First Showing, Badass Digest, Culturemap, Jurassic Park Legacy, Examiner, and Ain't It Cool.
If you know of other sites that have covered the project, do let us know so we can thank them and share it! We should have more great coverage coming soon.
Thank You & Remember To Spread the Word!
