UPDATE:  

We have hit, and surpassed, our funding for Stretch Goal #1!  That means the audio book and professionally printed book stretch rewards will be added to the pledge levels detailed below!

More--if our campaign closes over $115,000 we will upgrade all printed book rewards to hardcover, professionally printed first edition books signed by all four authors!

We have 1 day left!  Let's make this happen.

And thank you all for your incredible generosity and support!

Stretch Goal #1 - $95,000 -- ACHIEVED!!!

Thanks to you we have had amazing success with this campaign so we are looking at the next step for this book--publication in hardcover and trade paperback formats!  That brings with it a heavy cost (over $40,000) just for printing 1,000 hardcover and 2,000 softcover copies, plus shipping and more!  

So we are offering new Stretch Rewards!  IF we hit our Stretch Goal funding amount then the following pledge levels get bonus stretch rewards!

Any Reward Level $50 and Up will get the audiobook version of Underrated Movies We Recommend!  All 125 reviews will be read by the authors and delivered to backers in MP3 format!

Any Reward Level $100 and Up will get a trade paperback printed copy of the book!  (If the reward level chosen was for a Print-on-demand copy then you'll get a higher quality trade paperback first edition printing of the book, plus all promised autographs!) 

Any Reward Level $150 and Up will get a hardcover printed copy of the book! (If the reward level chosen was for a Print-on-demand copy then you'll get a higher quality first edition hardcover printing of the book, plus all promised autographs!)  (plus the audiobook version and all other listed rewards)

Any Reward Level $200 and Up will get a hardcover printed copy of the book signed by all four authors! (plus the audiobook version and all other listed rewards)

And for everyone 25 additional movies will be reviewed (for 125 movies total, 375 reviews in one book!).  If you get the eBook, audio book, or printed book, if we hit this goal you'll get 25 more reviews!

But those rewards are only given if we raise more than $95,000 before the campaign ends!  So keep pledging and spreading the word about our project!

These extra versions mean more proofreading, legal clearances, and more--plus, again, the cost of just printing and shipping the books.  We cut to the bone to get it to this amount.

But even if we don't make our goal, we want to thank those who were super generous.  All donations of $250 or more will include the exclusive reward podcasts that were added 10 days into the campaign, and All donations over $1,000 also get the $1,000 level reward of all previous, and future, donation podcasts from Now Playing!

We know this Stretch Goal target is high but we're hopeful with your support we can make it happen!

Original Story:

Now Playing Podcast has spent the last eight years dissecting Hollywood’s biggest franchises to see what makes a good sequel. Now we need your help crafting a sequel to our successful show format as we look to leap from podcast to the printed page. 

The hosts of Now Playing are ready to present 100 films you might have missed but we think you'll love in our first book: Underrated Movies We Recommend.

If we hit our stretch goal #1, that number will jump and you'll get reviews of 125 films you might have missed!

But just like our shows, we can only do this with your support.  Since 2007 the loyal listeners of Now Playing Podcast have been there as hosts Stuart Atkinson, Jakob Conkling, Arnie Carvalho, and Marjorie Carvalho have reviewed nearly 500 films.  We're forever thankful to you for keeping our show on the air, because we know you love the same thing we do:  talking about movies (good and bad).

With your continued support, we can bring you Underrated Movies We Recommend, in which each of the four hosts will pick 25 films they consider worthy of your time.   (If we hit our stretch goal, that count will increase from 100 to 125 movies!)

It could be a film that bombed and quickly disappeared from theaters, or one that fell out of the spotlight after a critical beating, or maybe it simply got lost in the box office shuffle.  These are the films that we would never get a chance to review on Now Playing Podcast, but with your help we can make them part of this collection.

These movies will span all genres of film.  Sci-Fi, Horror, Comedy, Suspense, Comic Book Movies and more!  Even a musical (as chosen by Stuart)!  If you love movies you're sure to find something in Underrated Movies We Recommend you haven't seen but you'll love.

Some of the movies we're planning to review are in the graphic below--and we're revealing more movies every $4,000 we raise!

Click the image for a high res version. Movie titles subject to change during the writing of the book.

We're keeping this book as close to the Now Playing Podcast format as possible, with three hosts reviewing each film.  So basically, you're getting 300 movie reviews in a single book!

If we hit our stretch goal we'll review 125 movies, for 375 movie reviews in one book!

Our goal is to bring something tangible to our listeners; these recommendations don't come from an algorithm, they come from film fans just like you, and Now Playing Podcast listeners know there is a lot of research and discussion that comes before we give a film a "green arrow."

The challenge to get this book to you, the listener (and soon the reader), is greater than any we've faced while racing to get our shows online. We've secured artists to create a fantastically unique visual style, copy editors to ensure this product is fit for publication, and attorneys to make sure we don't step on any toes in Hollywood.

The authors are not pocketing your pledge.  The money we're trying to raise is to cover the costs of publishing the book.  Included in this is:

*$10,000 for original art both on the cover and inside the book.
*$9,000 budgeted for legal fees, including review for trademark and copyright violation.
*Nearly $4,000 will be taken by Kickstarter and Credit Card Processing fees if we hit our goal
*$3,000 for marketing
*$2,500 for on-demand printing of the books to provide rewards to our backers
*$2,500 for printing T-shirts to provide rewards to our backers
*$2,000 for page layout and editing

Plus ISBN registration fees, forward fees, shipping costs (to each other for the signature items), and so many more little costs that really add up.  But we've accounted for all of them so we don't fall prey to the pitfalls of other Kickstarters that end up losing money when funded.

But we need you to push us past our goal.  And for that we're pulling out all the stops.  You can choose from rewards that include exclusive shows from our archives, and even a once-in-a-lifetime chance to co-host an episode of Now Playing Podcast!

For every 10% we reach towards our goal we will reveal 2 or 3 titles of the movies we plan to review in the book!

We only have 30 days to make this dream a reality--so please help spread the word and pledge now!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest hurdle to overcome is in the legal department. We've retained counsel to ensure that our project follows all fair use laws when it comes to films, characters, and other copyrighted and trademarked material. Beyond the written reviews, even actors' likenesses and fictional characters' images have been deemed protected intellectual property. While there are exceptions for parodies and other works, our ability to create a cover, along with 15 pieces of original art, while operating inside copyright laws, is a challenge.
