The Dust Trailer Is Here!

After an intense few months, we are EXTREMELY proud and excited to finally reconnect with you guys. The Dust Trailer is now live on YouTube! The trailer gives you a vivid glimpse into the world of Dust, including the stark contrast between the Tracker and City ways of life. The forest, its creatures, and the cityscapes were all made possible thanks to your generosity and patience. We hope everyone is excited with the way the film is turning out, and we would love to hear your reactions on Kickstarter and Facebook. We also want you to know the Team is pushing forward and doing all we can to complete Dust this year. The trailer is a big milestone for our Dust family, so thank you all for being a part of the project.

We also have a few quick announcements:

The trailer music was composed by Yasuharu Takanashi (composer of Naruto Shippuden) and Francois Jolin, who recently scored the After Earth trailer and is also a Dust backer here on Kickstarter.

Over the next few days, we will be spreading the word on social media and sending the trailer to blogs and websites. Right now Dust has a chance to go viral and potentially become a larger project. Having the opportunity to make a feature film, a series, or game would be incredible ways to continue sharing and exploring the Dust universe. There is so much more to this world, and it would be amazing to have your help so please consider sharing the trailer. The more attention the trailer gets, the better the chance of Dust becoming something bigger.

Our Comic Con schedule is as follows:

  • The entire Dust team will be at Comic Con handing out swag and sharing the trailer
  • We will be posting the times/locations of our meetups through Kickstarter, Facebook & Twitter 
  • Irezumi and the City Merchant will be with us IN COSTUME, so this is your big chance to meet them and get a picture!
  • If you happen to find us at Comic Con, post your Tracker/Merchant picture on Facebook or Twitter to get some exclusive goodies! Make sure to tag us @dustthefilm so we know about it!

Thank you for following and supporting our work. We hope to see you all at Comic Con.

Update #23

Countdown to Dust Trailer

3 comments

Hey Backers,

Things have been extremely busy here as we have been working hard toward completing the new trailer. It is coming together great and we hope you will enjoy watching it on July 11th.

We've had the opportunity to work with some amazing composers on the trailer. It will feature original music by Yasuharu Takanashi and Francois Jolin. You most likely have heard work from both of these composers. Takanashi is the composer of the immensely popular anime Naruto Shippuden. Francios has recently composed the music for the After Earth trailer.

Hopefully you have been following our updates on Facebook. We've been posting some cool content about the world there and recently launched a countdown page on DustTheFilm.com. Our countdown page features Takanashi's music and some great art by Eoin Colgan.   

We're excited to build on the momentum from the trailer during or visit to San Diego Comic-Con next week. We have some fun things planned for the show and will send out our scheduled later this week. We're looking forward to finally sharing the trailer with you.

Thanks!

Team Dust
