Let's Wrap This Up Right!
Thank you to everyone for your continued support. We'll be revealing all the details of the Six Seasons and a Movie art show on May 18, the day after a certain season 3 finale!
Time For The Final Push
Let's see if we can get this thing up to $5000! That should easily cover our operation costs for the entire summer season! I should also take this opportunity to ask international backers to be mindful of the shipping costs for items outside of the United States. Increasing your pledge by an extra $10 will be very much appreciated on our end. And if you look at the rewards list to the right, you can see that we've got a new tier to make up for that addition. $40 or more will net you some sexy cheesecake art by Sasha Palacio. Don't worry, it will be tasteful and definitely a piece you would be proud to display in public view. Backers who have previously donated that amount or more will automatically get it with their rewards. Thank you again for your support. We can't wait to start letting you know about the event details in the coming weeks.
Minimum Funding Goal Reached!
Cool cool cool! We were able to meet this in less than a week! As a result, the initial weekend event is a lock. We appreciate your continued support as each additional donation from this point on will help make the event a better experience for those in attendance. We're currently in talks with venue owners in order to extend the exhibit through the summer so that more people can check out the amazing artwork that's been submitted. And once the funding deadline is reached, we will start giving EVERY backer bonus reward items, exclusive sneak peaks, and advance notice on special offers leading up to the Six Seasons and a Movie art show.
What is the Six Seasons and a Movie Art Show?
"Six seasons and a movie" was first uttered as a phrase in defense of a television show that was on the brink of cancellation. If given the chance, the show would last longer than the three weeks that some cynics had predicted for it. In 2011, the phrase was appropriated as a rallying call for fans of another television show with an uncertain fate. Among these fans were artists of great talent. Their passion for the show could clearly be seen in their artwork. PixelDrip noticed these individuals and decided on putting together a group art exhibit to showcase their talent. The open call asked for artists to create artwork that they feel represents their vision of what will occur when a show is allowed six seasons and a movie's worth of content.At first, it seemed like it would only be a show featuring about a dozen artists local to the Los Angeles area. But within two weeks of the open call for artwork, the number of individuals submitting work rapidly ballooned up to 130. And these artists were from all over the world. With such a passionate response, the only option was to create a group art show featuring all of these artists. The Six Seasons and a Movie art show will exhibit a mix of framed and canvas artwork, prints, sneakers, shirts, origami, dioramas, custom vinyl toys, tabletop role playing game miniatures, video game demos, and plushies. In addition, there will be multimedia presentations of music videos and film shorts via projector and monitors.
When will it take place?
Summer 2012. This is not just a weekend event. Venue size and timing can limit the amount of attendees. We want to share this exhibit with as wide an audience as possible and the only way to do that is by finding the ideal venue(s) and giving people the opportunity to view it across a timespan of several months.

What is the money going towards?
$3500 is the minimum amount we have budgeted towards venue rental, equipment, set decoration, and staffing. A weekend exhibit featuring a dozen artists is already a handful of work to put together. An exhibit featuring 130 artists is a monumental task for anyone to tackle. Any additional funding we receive will go towards making the exhibit a better experience and towards additional shows in the future. There's no reason for the Six Seasons and Movie art show to just be a one time deal. We would like to turn it into a recurring event to allow for additional artists and attendees to experience it.
What do you get for backing our project?
Pledges of $10 or more will receive the Six Seasons and a Movie documentary. As much as we'd like for people from all around the world to experience the exhibit, scheduling and geographic location will limit the attendees to those that are in Los Angeles at the time of the event. We will be shooting the documentary around and during the event so viewers will be able to get as close to the experience as possible. The documentary will also include artwork and video submissions. It will also come bundled with a short video game made by one of the participating artists for your enjoyment.
Pledges of $30 or more will include artwork and items that will be exhibited at the art show. So even if backers are unable to attend the art show, they can still own the kind of items being exhibited. You can see the specific breakdown of these rewards on the list to the right.
ConclusionWe continue to be astonished and humbled by the artists that have agreed to participate in the art show. Any of these individuals is talented enough to have their own solo exhibit. Having the opportunity to gather their artwork under the same roof is a dream come true and one we would like to share with the rest of you. Thank you for your support.Keep checking the Kickstarter page as well as the PixelDrip website for additional details leading up to this summer's Six Seasons and a Movie art show.
