Update #37

DVD's and Changes to KaboingTV site!

2 comments

Hey all. It's now about a year since we started this journey, and I wanted to update you on what's going on.

The Frog in a Suit shorts are getting a good response ( that you helped fund). Thanks to the help of Kickstarter backers Kevin Johnson, Suzanne Kasch and Wade Goyens, we have upgraded the KaboingTV site with new features and pizazz. They are helping to maintain the site while I'm busy creating new content, and scouring the landscape for indie animation talent. We also have other plans in the works. Check out the site.

www.kaboingtv.com

I'm happy to say that the DVD's are finally at the factory and should be ready early May for mailing to those in the category. I've added a bonus film of "My Dog Zero" which has never been released on video or DVD, and has not been shown in it's full version on the web.

Thank you all again for your support. It's a slow road but a worthy one.

Best:

Joe Murray

KaboingTV Launches March 11, 2011!

4 comments

It's Official. The website and Frog in a Suit episodes you all backed are going up starting March 11th.

We will premiere episode 34 ( the first one which most of you have seen already), then the other two that you paid for on March 18th and March 25th. They will also be super syndicated via YouTube and others to get maximum viewership and exposure to our project.

The future will rely on the response to our episodes and KaboingTV as a whole. I have decided to keep the site and cartoons advertising free for now, and build up viewership. I would like to remain viewer supported and free, although we may offer subscriptions that offer up cartoons  before others see them, as well as "bonus features".

These episodes cost more than the amount raised ( which was offset by my own funding as well as many favors from industry "friends". ) But that is the way it always seems to go. The Kickstarter money went directly to the animation studio who did most of the actual animation. ( as well as thank you gifts). Of course , I could not have done it without you.

For those who are getting DVD's of the completed episodes, you will be getting those soon. If your address has changed in the past year, please update me at joemstudio@earthlink.net.

Thank you to Kickstarter backers and overall supporters Suzanne Kasch and Kevin Johnson for all of the hard additional work.

Thank you again for all of your support. Please tell your friends, email lists, etc about our launch!

You are the best.

Hi All! I wanted to give you an update on where we are with the Frog episodes and KaboingTV.
As we speak, the episodes are finished ( they both ended up being 5 minutes long rather than the original 3, so I've put quite a bit of my savings into trying to get these out. We are doing some last minute sound polish on them, while my web guy and I are fine tuning the KaboingTV website. It will be very simple at first to get the episodes out to as many people as possible.

We are shooting for an early March launch. I've been holding off a bit on it since I have been working on some funding sources, but I feel we need to get this up and out.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks to Suzanne Kasch, Frog In a Suit and KaboingTV now have their own facebook page at:
http://www.facebook.com/froginasuit and http://www.facebook.com/KaboingTV respectively. There you will find more info, fan talk etc. about the upcoming progress.

We recently recorded Tom Kenny and Carlos Alazraqui for the second episode of "Frog" that is being produced with the backers from Kickstarter, and the first episode is in it's animation stage. Check out my blog at http://joemurraystudio.com/blog/ for early animation tests.

I am in the process of putting together another behind the scenes reel coming soon.

Thanks again for all of your support!
