Update #8

In the Home Stretch

2 comments

Hello All,

We've received several inquiries from backers wondering where we're at with this project. Your contributions have helped us every step of the way, and we're amazed to see how Battle Lizard has evolved. The project was placed on a temporary hold after encountering some unexpected expenses with CG animation. The generosity of our initial backers has gotten us to a point which otherwise would not have been possible, and we're so grateful for your support. We have since been able to secure the additional funding needed to move forward, and are excited to share a short segment from the nearly finished film.

We’re aiming for a new release date of July 4th. We’ve now finished color correction, which has helped to develop a great visual “look” for the world we're creating. Sound design and score are in their final stages, while we add a few finishing touches to visual effects and tweak minor glitches.This means we’re in the home stretch.

On another note, there have been so many awesome suggestions for our dinosaur’s name, and we’re looking forward to announcing which one we’ve chosen with the release of the film.

We have your rewards packages sorted, and will be sending them to you in tandem with the completion of Battle Lizard. We’re excited for the release, and grateful for your part in bringing this project to life. We couldn’t have done this without your support. Be sure to check in soon, the next update should be the final film. :)

Update #6

We made it!

THANK YOU!

We are both humbled and excited to announce that we've made our goal! We are absolutely touched by the support we've received from everyone who encouraged this campaign to succeed. Every single one of your contributions helped us surpass this milestone, and now we know with absolute certainty that "Battle Lizard" will very shortly see the light of day. A tremendous THANK YOU from Keegan, Eric and the Battle Lizard team for generously giving us the resources we need to finish our film!

Though we have succeeded in raising enough funds to complete the film itself, there are still many more aspects to the entire project that require even more funding out of pocket. As of today, we still have 5 days left. So, let's keep it going! That's 5 more days to raise funds to cover everything else, including our recent and final pickup day, the Kickstarter and Amazon fees (10%), official website design, festival submission fees, DVD / Blue-Ray printing, distribution, and costs to produce the Kickstarter video. That's close to $4,000 worth of additional expenses, on top of what we already raised to finish the film. We know it's a lot to strive for, but with the campaign still going strong, we really believe we can jump this final hurdle.

Help us over the next 5 days spread the word, post the link to facebook, twitter, blogs and newsletters. This is our final attempt to reach for the stars, and we're going to get there!

With Deepest Gratitude,

-The BL Team
