Hey everybody! I hope you all had a great weekend (And a happy belated Father's Day to all the dads out there). There are now only 11 days left in our campaign!
And today I'm super excited about a new addition to the cast! BRIAN STACK from CONAN! WHOO HOOO! Brian has long been one of my favorite comedic performers, so I couldn't be any more honored to have him in these films. Brian will be playing a role described in the script as a "sad-eyed pseudo hippy" named Terrence. Come on, who doesn't want to see that happen?
Terrence is Gordon Boonewell's (Paul Giamatti's character) boss before the corporate takeover of the museum. Unfortunately, Terrance isn't much of a player in GIANT SLOTH, but he plays a HUGE role in part 2: BENCHLEY MORNINGS. Let's get this second film funded so we can get even more Brian Stack genius!
To help keep us moving toward the second film goal, the next 18 people who pledge (or raise their existing pledge) $50 or more will be entered to win signed, original art from the Comedy Bang! Bang! title sequence!
We already hit our first stretch goal, which means that HUNDREDS of you are now getting post card sets! Just like that. Boom! Stretch goal magic! Now we're moving toward our second goal. Let's get everyone above $15 a bonus catalog of the crazy exhibits in the Benchley Museum! And after that we'll be gunning for more and more great animation. Animated bloopers! Fake TED talks! And of course an entire second short film starring this amazing cast!
Keep talking about these films! Send e-mails to friends, tweet about it, share it, spread the word. It all makes a huge difference! Let people know that you believe in making independent productions like this. We're proving every day that we can make what we want, the way we want.
