Vieni a Roma!!!!! Come to Rome!!! :-)
love B/W portraits :) I also love photography so much. I think you should share some more photos of yours on your FB page, just like your brother Joshua does, he is also an excellent photographer.
Okay. Points are pouring in. Stretch goals should be clarified, what happens after a particular goal is reached? Shooting on film is still a dream of yours Zach, put it up there and we'll see what we can do about it! Sending backers copies of the movie is a great idea. I think the logical step now is to see what you/we need for the movie, technical stuff, promotional stuff and of course, stuff for the fans. Look into this and come back to us!
Hey man, nice picture!
Some thoughts on the pledge :
1/ Why don't you give us a numerical figure? I think it is much easier for everyone to focus on a figure than just the "best they can". It could be in terms of money raised but also in terms of backers; We could start by 3 millions, then move to 4 and so on... Then focus on the numbers of backers as well, the more we are, the more awareness we create about this project. I think that's how the guys in Veronica mars did, and it went well.
2/ About other possible rewards to attract more people, how about a "behind the scene" short documentary? It's always fun to watch. Maybe also stickers for 5-8 $? A pledge for 1$? It is nothing but if it attracts another 60 000 people it will be great.
I'm glad you heard us on some advance film screening in various European cities, i can't wait to book a seat for Paris!
I'm so excited about this. Gutted I missed the London screenings so Paris would be cool. Also that photos awesome, lets see more yeh?! x
Thom Yorke??? would be AWESOME !!! & Thx for considering Paris, thx for all the work to you 3 ! x
I agree with everyone else. Stretch Goals need to go up sooner than later, so people have something to rally around.
Would LOVE some Thom Yorke!
I have set up 2 accounts to give more-and get more- but would be happy to set up a 3rd and 4th if you added a hug for $100 or makeout for $250 ;-)
Please try and do the movie on film! I really hope you can.
Your photo is stunning- you really captured a feeling in it. Love it! Love you!
Okay, now I really can't wait for Paris.
Nice photo! It's the best hobby, isnt it?
Also...Hoping you get to shoot on film!
Amazing news for an amazing film to come !
Paris ! I can't wait !!!
And by the way, inspiring photograph ! It's all about beard & hat !
Please also consider doing another London screening? (My local and favourite independent in trendy East London: http://www.genesiscinema.co.uk/)
I don't know if these comments are actually read or not, but I just wanted to say that if there was a reward level for getting a copy of the finished film on DVD, I would definitely up my pledge. I have currently only pledged $5 just because I believe in supporting films in general outside of the tyrranical studio system. None of the current rewards appeal to me at all, so I just wanted to mention that at least from me, (and I'm guessing a lot of other people) you would get more money towards the project. I've helped produce DVD copies before, so I know they don't actually cost that much on the back end. Anyway, just something to think about! Good Luck with the film!
So the stretch goal is "more" and the reward is "better movie"?
I'm so excited about this film project and interested in learning how complicated the process can be! It's amazing how a black and white photograph can say so much, yet be speechless.
Nashville = Tax break offers associated with filming. Nashville also = AMAZING indie music. Nashville also also = a plethora of the hats in the above photo. Jussayin'
Fantastic photo! He was awesome.
Thom Yorke ftw
Personally, I don't care much about the rewards; I'm just excited to help. I'm a decent editor (writing, not film). Need an editor?
Hi Zack and Coco I'm a french fan and backer but that's not the point, I lobe your picture it's really good and I was just hanging around on youtube and found a video that you could like, I know there is no link with the subject here but whatever ^^
it's a great photograph; very nice job.
and on a different note, how about including istanbul in the list of cities? a showing at the film festival perhaps?
Your updates are as entertaining as they are informative and quite nice photography, by the way. Best wishes for a lot of stretching...
I don't think it would look any less classy to name an amount for the stretch goal. I can't speak for anyone else, but I know I wouldn't have been offended if you did. We all want this to be the best movie it can be. The goal should be to get what you need to make a better movie than "Garden State".
Thanks for the updates. Will we be able to buy the T shirt as backers and ship to UK? This will raise more money for the film.
From one photographer to another - AWESOME shot! As a backer - I REALLY hope you get to shoot this on film!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for sharing your photo of Mr. Hopper with us. Very cool. I am enjoying the updates from you and Coco. :-)
what about Jonny Greenwood as score composer ?

Stretch goal.. Filming on location in LONDON! This is both reachable and achievable. You can make the film you've always dreamed of. We can help...I have contacts ;)
Love from London!
Great photo. Thanks for sharing! :D
So excited to be apart of this, can't wait to see the film :) Ever think about doing a screening in Australia ???
flying droids rule! :)
This is SUCH an awesome photo!!!! Nicely done ZB!
Waiting for an italian screening!
Your very own Shaman is sending you positive vibrations for 4 million here on kickstarter...if you were able to get to 2 million so quickly there is no reason youi cannot reach beyond your goal. DO NOT GIVE UP ON THE IDEA OF USING FILM!!! How amazing would that be. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help energetically.. I am the OCHEALINGCENTER after all :) Thanks for the heads up on Thom Yorke...listening now....
PLEASE SHOOT IN FILM!! It's a lost art, and the texture it creates is gorgeous
ooooh, how intense is that.
Any reason you aren't doing a Meet & Greet in London? Is it the beer?
Only a little weirded out that I was listening to Thom Yorke when I read this post. :)
So very close... You should really make Amsterdam a priority. I'd love te see you there.
- If not for me, do it for all the weed you can smoke...!
Don't forget the Aussies! Although it is fairly pricey to come down this way.
love you zach, i swear you are such a diamond in the rough, there are very few celebs that are real as you are and people see and know that so much. you are just .... wow lol no words to describe the awesomeness that oozes from each little drop of sweat and blood you put into your work. i wish there were more people in the biz like you. <3 (oh an my kitty says hes no kitten but his taint is the softest of them all lol)
Zach, is there any way you could shoot the flying droid as an old school practical effect? Would that cut back on the CGI cost? I don't mean to assume you haven't thought about this but just in case you hadn't, I think it would look awesome if it was possible to shoot it on a wire and was an actual little droid guy. Whatever you come up with, I'm excited to see and proud to be a backer and fan.
Shooting on film is just a waste of money (and time), you can achieve the same quality (and even better in low light conditions) with digital camera, PLUS having real time dailies, constant shooting, smaller cameras, etc.
As for the CG droid give me a shout: I worked on many indie productions as VFX Supervisor and I know how to handle low budgets for amazing visual effects ;)
I heard you on Howard today and honestly I was captivated by your story about the challenges re: making this movie. Couldn't wait to become a backer. And I'm going to back more than one item for your movie. Just a mom excited about jointing this project. Can't wait to see you in Austin!
I heard you on Howard the other day too & was really interested in your story & the movie.
Looking forward to this experience.
Best of Luck !
'An epic soundtrack. (We definitely need some Thom Yorke...)'
Please make this happen!!!!!! Would be amazing to have a Thom Yorke song in the soundtrack. Or Radiohead...or Atoms For Peace aha.
"A computer generated flying droid. (We could cut him. But I love him.)". Does he have to be CG? I'm sure he doesn't need to be cut, we just might need to get creative/old school! :)
