      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!

      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.

      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! :)

      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.
