Final Video, new Neil Gaiman reward, and Telethon Event!

Posted by Anthony Sneed (Creator)

Hello Backers,

We hope your week is off to a great start. Everything is full steam ahead for us, with the last 24 hours seeing us surpass 500 backers and $30,000 raised for the movie. Everyone receiving this message is directly responsible for that, so thank you from the bottom of our hearts! We have other exciting updates to share as well.

We've premiered our fourth and final campaign video at The Comics Reporter, featuring our most expansive look yet at what the movie will contain. You can watch the video here:

Neil Gaiman, beloved writer and board member of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, has also generously offered us an art print inspired by one of his quotes, which is illustrated by David Mack (Kabuki, Daredevil) and signed by Neil himself. It comes bundled with almost all of our other rewards and is limited to only 1, so act fast! We also have an exclusive on-camera conversation between Neil Gaiman and Swamp Thing artist Stephen Bissette we will share with everyone once we hit $35,000 raised. 

Our campaign ends this Thursday, November 17th at 9:00PM, and we intend to go out with a bang! We're hosting a live telethon event to get us across the finish line. For New Yorkers, the event is happening at Brooklyn Fire Proof, 120 Ingraham St., Brooklyn, NY 11237. No admission charge. We'll also be live streaming it so anyone can watch and contribute. Just RSVP to this Facebook event to get a reminder:

We only have 3 days left to reach our goal, and it is an all or nothing situation. We're extremely grateful for all of your support and ask that you once again share with your networks. With your help we will be fully funded by the end of this week! We can't wait to share this movie with all of you!
