615 backers pledged £33,463 to help bring this project to life.

We've reached our target... or have we?

Posted by Jamie Anderson (Creator)

Thank you so much everyone, for all of your wonderful support - we reached our target today! 500 of you have now said to the World: YES! I want to see more Gerry Anderson creations brought to life! and I can't thank you enough for that!

However, several times today, backers have reduced their pledges and/or cancelled them altogether... so 3 times today, we've dropped back below our target. It's been terrifying, and has reminded me repeatedly that while we have done well, and are on the home straight... we have not finished yet!

Wouldn't it be sad if we got this far, and then fell at the last hurdle?

We won't let that happen though, will we? Keep on sharing, keep on spreading the word! We have cool stretch goals too, now, so if we can reach those - cool things will happen!

Thanks everyone,

      I recall Gerry speaking about this project some time ago... and if I remember rightly he envisaged a call sign for the team which was GFI for "Go For It" or maybe I just dreamt that :-)

      Well done to Jamie and MG, it's been obvious from the start that they have worked tirelessly in getting this project funded. Hard to believe that a project originally created by Gerry Anderson the creator of one of the best UK sci-fi shows (UFO) in TV history has only just limped over the line in its funding of an exciting brand new series of books. This project deserves to succeed, I look forward to the day when TV companies are fighting each other for the rights bring it to the small screen.

      Well done.
      I'd love to see the creation from my childhood's dream maker. Thunderbird was one of my favourite back in school days...

      I hope all goes well until day 0!
      After all, they say take off is more dangerous than landing...
      And we have OK for TAKE OFF!
      So GO!

      I also increased my pledge yesterday. In light of ITV's announcement that Thunderbirds will be back on tvs 2015, it will be great to have some original Anderson material coming out also :)

      Yes, I too noticed that, in fact I increased my pledge on one occasion just to bring it back up to the level needed for funding, I hope that no one pulls out at the last minute and puts the project in jeopardy, it maybe that a few people's circumstances have changed and had higher priorities and that this wont happen again, we will need to be vigilant. hopefully a few more people will come on board and the levels will be high enough even if someone else drops out.
