Funding for this project was canceled by the project creator on July 5, 2012.
Ending our Kickstarter Campaign
It is with a heavy heart that I have to inform you that we are ending our Kickstarter Fundraising Campaign, and canceling all pledges. I want to thank everyone who pledged funding, or shared our campaign with others. Every dollar, every tweet, every view on YouTube meant the world to myself and everyone on the production.
Despite immense work on the pre-production front, and tight planning, we've run into several unforeseen production problems with bringing Static Shock Blackout 2 to life, including an unexpected scheduling conflict with some of our principal players. While many of us feel we could still bring this film to life, it would not at this point be possible to achieve the quality we feel the film deserves. When striving for Hollywood level quality, we hit Hollywood level road blocks. No film is immune to production problems and scheduling conflicts, as we are being reminded of in this case. Please know that the characters of Static Shock are important to us, as is the memory of the late creators of the franchise. We hope to return to this in the future, with even more support, even higher production quality, and bring to life once again one of the world's few black superheroes.
We are not all blond and blue eyed muscle men, we are not all 'Boy Scouts,' we are not all billionaires. Neither should all of our heros be that. We are each moving on to other productions for now, but we will never forget this journey, and look forward to continuing it again in the future. To stay apprise of future productions, please follow some of the production crew on Twitter, or like the Static Shock Blackout page on Facebook, where we will still show off any future works by anyone from the original production, as well as inform you if we start down this road again.
Thank you all again.
