      Hey Paul, we're still working hard on it, and I think you'll really like where it lands. Definitely taking longer than we intended, but it'll be worth the wait.

      So is this project dead?

    3. Creator Geoff Skinner on September 8, 2014

      Hi Sean, we'll have some news soon, including a website link, more pics, as well as the backer videos. We've been hard at work on the short this whole time and it's looking fantastic.

    4. Creator Sean Allin on September 7, 2014

      Any recent news on this movie?

    5. Creator J. Pednaud on October 3, 2013

      I supported your Kickstarter awhile back and I was hoping you could lend some support to mine.

      Some blessed individuals have accomplished their greatest deeds and participated in their most epic adventures long after their demise.

      After Life: True Tales of the Wandering Dead is a thoughtful and well-researched compilation of these very real post-mortem adventures.

      Learn the complete history of mummy commerce and how the powdered remains of pharaohs came to be found in masterpiece works of art. Unearth the very real role Body Snatchers and ‘Resurrectionists’ performed in the name of science. Read about the Portuguese concubine who was exhumed and made Queen and about the deceased Wild West outlaw who travelled America as a funhouse prop.

      These are just a small sampling of the very true tales of the wandering dead that can be found in the pages of After Life.

      We will have an update soon, and you'll have something in your mailboxes as well. The film is coming along very nicely, and I'm blown away by what efram has been doing with the visual effects. I can't wait to share more!

    7. Creator Jeff the Voice Actor on July 29, 2013

      I was wondering the same thing as Sean!

    8. Creator Sean Allin on July 9, 2013

      Has anyone heard anything new?

    9. Creator Phil von Stade on October 6, 2012

      So..... what ever happened? Thought there was supposed to be a premier in July??

    10. Creator Sean Allin on August 17, 2012

      Haven't heard anything new lately. Please post a status update when possible.

    11. Creator Sean Allin on May 20, 2012

      Many thanks on making my sister feel so welcome as an extra on Friday. She had a blast all day long. :D

    12. Creator Matthew on April 17, 2012

      Congrats! I feel kind of sleazy for literally pledging at the last minute, but every cent helps, right? Love your short films, and I can't wait to see what you do with a feature-length film!

    13. Creator Karen Z on April 16, 2012

      Congratulations on going to outer space with your Kickstarter goal. Looking forward to another classic! : )

    14. Creator Steve Grothaus on April 13, 2012

      Congrats on getting funded! I'm glad to be a small part of this, as I know you all will do an excellent job! Can't wait to see the final result.

    15. Creator Geoff Skinner on April 12, 2012

      Thanks, Alex! We can't wait to start.

    16. Creator Alex Petrovic on April 12, 2012

      Congratulations on making the extra goal and being funded! Really looking forward to "Endangered"!

    17. Creator Michael Mizov on April 12, 2012

      I love anything post-apocalyptic, can't wait to see it!

    18. Creator Geoff Skinner on April 12, 2012

      Thanks for everything, Steve... We can't wait to get started!

    19. Creator Steve Fenwick on April 12, 2012

      Congrats on the stretch goal! Go make that movie!

    20. Creator Geoff Skinner on April 11, 2012

      Great catch, Scott!

    21. Creator Scott Morrison on April 10, 2012

      This sounds like a great concept, I look forward to your making it a reality.

      A quick word for verisimilitude: at 00:23 of the project video you said the man put himself in "cryogenic sleep" , this should be cryonic rather than cryogenic. Cryogenics are for frozen peas, cryonics are for human beings. It's a pet peeve of mine, always takes me out of a film or a book when it's wrong.

      Good luck.

    22. Creator Conrad Knauer on April 10, 2012

      Over 200 backers; congratulations!

    23. Creator Geoff Skinner on April 6, 2012

      Stretch goals to come!!!

    24. Creator Geoff Skinner on April 6, 2012

      Wow, thanks everyone! I am in awe. We can make this film!!!!

    25. Creator Geoff White on April 6, 2012

      Congrats Geoff and co.!

    26. Creator Bachtiar Rahady on April 6, 2012

      This is so great, prepare to get Endangered!

    27. Creator Derek S. on April 6, 2012

      Goal reached! Congrats!!

    28. Creator Conrad Knauer on April 4, 2012

      Today would have been my friend's birthday... I really want to see his pic in the movie and I'm a little nervous about the project getting to $18K with only a week left, so I just raised my pledge from $25 to $50. If you can, please consider bumping up your pledge too! :)

    29. Creator Judy Pancoast on April 2, 2012

      Doing everything I can to spread the word for my handsome and extremely talented cousin Efram!

    30. Creator Charles Floading on March 26, 2012

      I've been living vicariously though Efram since Project Greenlight. I decided to chip in on this project after his amusing and enlightening appearance on the podcast On The Page. Good luck to you, Geoff and all involved!

    31. Creator TJ Sakasegawa on March 22, 2012

      The pledge I made was actually from all of us at Dilated Pixels! Get em brother!

      *note to kickstart, there should be a send personal note with pledge button before it actually take your $$!!

    32. Creator Kevin Quattro on March 22, 2012

      Absolutely love these type of films and want MORE! I hope this gets funded as it's in wonderful hands! GO! GO! GO!

    33. Creator Alex Petrovic on March 20, 2012

      Yay, Lovecraft movie! I cant help but help you out. Lets get this started! Iä, Iä, Cthulhu fthagn!

    34. Creator Justin Thomason on March 16, 2012

      Looking forward to it, guys!

    35. Creator Bachtiar Rahady on March 12, 2012

      Can't wait to see this project 'kickstarted'. I like HellHoles shortstories (watched complete ep. 1 ~ 4) and really loved it!

    36. Creator Geoff Skinner on March 12, 2012

      Absolutely, Conrad, that's a very cool thing to do.

    37. Creator Conrad Knauer on March 12, 2012

      Hi! Saw your project and it looked like the kind of thing a friend of mine would have really liked; he passed away not too long ago and I thought that if I backed at the $25 level I could use a pic of him instead of me as a way to memorialize, if that's ok.

    38. Creator Holly Brown on March 7, 2012

      Sounds like a fantastic project with an amazing team working on it. Excited to be able to help out :)

    39. Creator Christiane Gilbert on March 6, 2012

      Sorry there's no props at my moms this time....I'll have to get the girls in on this then we can be a missing family. :)

    40. Creator Jason Brown on March 6, 2012

      Feels like old times! Sorry I couldn't throw you more this time. Good luck. I hope to see it come to be!

    41. Creator Geoff White on March 6, 2012

      Very interesting project. How about a graphic novel of the film as well? Looks like you have a great illustrator around already. Let's get this puppy funded!
