Comikaze Clip from the Feature Film!!!

Hey everyone,

I had so much fun over the weekend at Stan Lee's Comikaze!!! I did five different panels, with the big one about this film "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?". I put together a short clip to show everyone at the panel, and will be putting up the entire panel soon on youtube, but I though I'd show you the rough cut I showed to everyone there. Obviously, this has not been mixed or color-graded or smoothed out yet, but I'm letting you in to check out my process. I'm plowing forward with more interviews every week, and this is literally just the tip of the iceberg.

Also, this weekend, I launched another project on Kickstarter, a comedic sword and sorcery animated episodic that I'm looking to make called "Unicrom, the Unicorn Barbarian". It's about a Unicorn Barbarian who must protect the world from Ancient Trans-Dimensional Monsters who have come to enslave us all. Check it out, share it with your friends on all your social media, and please kick in and support it if it's something you'd like to see get made:

      To address "my starting another kickstarter before finishing the one I'm working on", please see my past kickstarter "Grimm Fairy Tales", which was in production when I launched "The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?", and has been getting delivered to all the backers this past month. Everything I do is a juggling act, one project starting while one is in production while finishing another, and if you were in the industry you might understand that. I'm currently scheduling lots of interviews, while hunting down other key people to talk to, and waiting for very important people's schedules to become clear. Thanks for being patient.

      WHOOOO! That look just as awesome as I hoped it was going to be when I tossed cash at it so long ago :) Even just a 3 minute clip, and I was soaking up all of it --- all the designs, all the photos of would-be toys, I love it. Awesome stuff Jon, keep it up!

      As for Unicrom, I'm all onboard for that. You have a proven track record, I love animation, and the concept is great... but I'm currently broke and looking for a part time job. I've really been trying to avoid Kickstarter in general because of it. If I manage to get a job & paycheck -- no, just a job. I can use a credit card knowing I'll get a paycheck later -- in the next 57 Days, I'll gladly pitch in. 2 months is actually a pretty good window of time.

      Good luck with that one too man!

      Hey, Jon, these guys don't know you're a proven commodity and have already proven you can juggle multiple projects. However, just in case you don't finish this one, I'm going to be starting the "The Death of 'The Death of Superman Lives!; What happened?' This is what happened!" kickstarter.

      Can I count on your support?

      I think that by "tip of the iceberg" Jon means footage that he already has, which perhaps is much larger than what he shows in the clip. Or at least, that is what I hope its the case.

      If "this is literally just the tip of the iceberg", why are you starting a new project before coming close to finishing one that thousands of people are patiently waiting on?

      I agree with Aaron. Starting another project before finishing the prior one does not make me happy as a backer.

      How about finishing one Kickstarter before starting a new one?

      Jon,

      It was great to meet you at Comikaze and your Kickstarter presentation panel was fantastic. Again, if you ever need any help working on the Superman doc. or any other "behind-the-scenes" type doc. I would love to work with you.
