Update #14

Alan Moore talks about the Jimmy's End universe and the feature film

1 comment

We caught up with Alan Moore taking the air on his country estate. Something about the bucolic setting seems to have loosened his lips. He fills in some of the blanks about the connection between the shorts we're working on now with director Mitch Jenkins, and the feature film that he's writing.

To help support the project, and get these short films out, please pledge generously! We're already at 74% thanks to you! 

Here are some suggestions for pledges and rewards:

Pledge £150 (approx. $225 USD) for the signed, numbered, very limited (150 copies) boxset. Only 63 of these limited rewards are still available. Exclusives include directors notes and Alan's original pencil drawings for the storyboard, plus the DVD and colour storyboard book.

Pledge £50 (approx. $75 USD)for the signed, numbered DVD / colour storyboard book. Only 19 of these limited rewards are still available.

Pledge £30 (approx. $45 USD) for the DVD / colour storyboard book.

Pledge £10 (approx. $15 USD) for the DRM free digital download of all the shorts.

Add £15 to any pledge, to a t-shirt to your reward (we'll check in at the end to work out which shirt and what size).

If you want to hear more about the project in Alan's own words check out the recent interviews at BleedingCool.com and Salon.com.

Thanks again for the overwhelming support! As Adisakdi says "Fascinating to watch Alan Moore's Kickstarter earn pledges at a consistent rate on a daily basis".

Special thanks to Rich, Gary and everyone at Bleeding Cool, Josh Frankel and Anica Archip!
