Hope this finds you all well.  It has been a while and I wanted to give you a snapshot of where we are with things.  

Project:  We have been working tirelessly and are now awaiting animation studio production.  Our biggest delay has been finding a studio to partner with.  Yes, there are a a few handfuls of animation studios for us to talk to - but we had two critical issues: A) They had to be a technical and creative fit, and B)  They would have to really squeeze their staff and budgets to help us out.  The bad news, which we did not anticipate - was that it took a lot of time for us to find the few studios that fit the bill.  The good news is that we found a great fit.  We are planning on making this information public soon - stay tuned for that.  What does that mean for the project?  We have to wait until the fall to start production.  Why the fall?  The studio is going out of their way to work on this - but at the same time, they have to be smart about costs.  They best way to do this is to work on our project while the have other work and additional staff already on hand.  If that is not clear, I am happy to discuss with any of you on the phone, Skype, or Google Hangout.  We will be making some announcements soon and should begin production in about 4 to 6 weeks. 

Funds:  We have not yet spent a dime of the KS funds.  We need every penny to go to production - and we will still be coming out of pocket to add onto the funds e raised.  

Rewards:  Some of you have reward issues.  The issues vary and I am dealing with each one individually.  We ask that you contact us and please be patient.  We promise to make sure you are all taken care of.  * Also - we will be sending all of our backers something special as an extra " thank you".  Expect that in about 3 weeks or less. 

Other News:  Physical copies of the graphic novels are almost ready for print.  And our Chosin documentary will be moving to cable soon (from Pay TV).  We will make the announcement once we are allowed to!

Friends of Chosin,

  Things have been a bit hectic around here for the whole team as we wrestled down our college finals.  That being said, we have not turned our focus on the project.  Here are some quick notes:

1.  We spent a lot of time fine turning the script.  As we have mentioned, this is critical because changing things during or after animation is a project killer  We have to be as close to perfect going into production.  

2.  We have sent our latest version out to get some better voice over work for experienced actors/professionals.  We want the next draft to have a polished enough feel so we can slap the table as soon as we can.  

3.  Expect to see a new animatic before Memorial Day Weekend.  This way you can view it and send feedback.  We got some really great notes and we thank you all for helping us make it better.  And even positive feedback is great!4

4.  Both graphic novels/comics are getting final touches and you should see them soon.  We are pretty proud of these and can't wait for you to see them!

5.  I have the backer-sketches in hand and will start putting them in the mail over the weekend.  Custom sketches are still underway. 

More to follow in a few days!  Thanks again for all the support.  

Semper Fi - Brian
