Thank you all so much for donating to American Bear! We truly appreciate the support. Because of your contributions we will be able to pay hardworking artists for their work (albeit not at all what they're worth). We have a little time left before our deadline, so we have decided to extend a stretch goal of $300 more. With the extra contributions, we will be able to fully realize the set that we have dreamed of, and pay our hardworking artists a little bit more (albeit not at all what they're worth).
We wanted to give a sneak peek at some of the rewards offered.
First up, the replica hat that some have selected as their reward. This is a picture of actor Deven Kolluri in the original hat. While this hat is pretty beat up, there is no need to worry because the hat you receive will be brand new.
Next, we wanted to share a video of the process we will be using to bind copies of the script. Click this link to see the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oBSUHbyf7Ss
As you can see, each of these scripts will be hand bound, and each one will feature it's own unique hand-cut and painted stencil art as seen on the home page for this kickstarter.
Those of you receiving posters will be sent an original poster hand made on recycled cardboard, maintaining that rustic look while utilizing a sustainable approach.
For the patrons that have selected to purchase their tickets in advance, we will be sending a survey to finalize reservation information. So keep your eyes on your email inbox.
And don't forget that all backers' names will be published in the final script as those who made American Bear possible.
Thank you again, from all of us here at Theatre en Bloc! Your support of new original theatre is deeply appreciated. See you at the show!
