It’s been a whirlwind 21 days, hasn’t it? We released 21 short videos as well as our second episode, “Tea Time at Table Five.” While we didn’t raise enough to fund our Kickstarter, we want to let you know that this isn’t the end of Imagination Situation.
In many ways, we’re just getting started.
To those who shared our videos, episodes and Kickstarter with your friends and family, thank you. And to those who donated to the Kickstarter, thank you too. We’re honored that you believe in what we’re trying to do.
So where do we go from here?
Over the next few weeks and months, we’re going to start rolling out new features on Imagination Situation.com . We’re going surround parents and kids with tips, stories, articles and videos that will inspire imagination everyday.
Inspired by our ‘21 Days of Imagination’ videos, we’ll bring you short videos filled with tips and demonstrate activities that parents and kids can do together for quick imaginative playtime.
Imagination in Action
This section of our site will feature how real parents use tips from Imagination Situation episodes, or their own “situations.” These anecdotes will let everyone share the moments that they used imagination to make their life playful instead of stressful. Yes, we want you to join in the fun!
Books, movies, music, products. If we see anything out there that inspires creativity and would be a great imaginative playtime addition, we’ll let you know about it!
We’re really excited about our new features, but we haven’t forgotten about:
Imagination Situation Episodes
Naturally, our episodes or “situations” will always be the star of our site. While we weren’t able to raise the money from Kickstarter, there are other ways for us to get more episodes made. We’re exploring these options- from finding sponsorships to seeing if there are any online hubs that would like to make Imagination Situation part of their entertainment lineup.
We would like to have a few more episodes produced before we start looking for those bigger opportunities, to help people see just what we’re capable of.
How is that possible without the Kickstarter? Easy. You can donate to us right now through PayPal, on the Imagination Situation web site. Just click here.
If everyone that donated to the Kickstarter campaign directly donated that money to us, we’d be able to produce two new episodes!
The money raised would be just enough to cover the cost of equipment rentals, cast payments, photos, props and original music in our production. We would also try to schedule filming our Imagination Interludes during these shoots to use the same equipment- as well as our talented cast.
We’re going to try and pull some big favors to stretch every penny out of what you contribute. A lot of that Kickstarter money would have gone into equipment upgrades, show enhancements, raises for the cast, a big website revamp and promotion of the show. If you’d generously donate the amount you’re already pledged to us, we’d be able to get two more episodes, which is definitely a success in our book.
Having more episodes will really help us get the word out about “Imagination Situation”. Plus, with all this new content, we’ll have a lot more opportunities to spread the word about the shows that YOU helped bring to the web.
Everyone that donates to us directly will get the Imagination Situation Ringtone, a personalized postcard and thank you video that were promised as our Kickstarter Perks. It’s the least we can do to thank you for your ongoing support.
There are so many ways to explore imagination, and we can’t wait to share them with you. Your support and enthusiasm has carried us through two episodes, 21 short videos and some great conversations on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. We hope you’ll support and share us as we continue to make imagination something that parents and kids can enjoy together.
