Craig the Genie: Happy One Year!

Posted by Brandon Blanks (Creator)

One year ago today, each and every one of you helped us achieve a dream: to bring Craig the Genie to life.  

We'll be the first to admit it: We anticipated being further along than this one year out from funding.  

We promised you that we all wanted to see Craig the Genie through to the end, and would do whatever it took to make it so.

So here we stand, one shattered ankle, two cases of serious family illness, three instances of misprinted and recalled factory orders, four 50-hour-a-week jobs, and 365 days later. 

We wanted to let you know we're still here.

Not only are we here, but in spite of all of that stuff, we've stayed true to what we promised: we're doing everything we can to make Craig the Genie so.

To those of you who have sent us and showed your enduring support - Thank you.  Thank you so much for your patience.  We're working hard to make something we can all be proud of, even if it takes longer than we anticipated.  We can't wait to show you the final product.

Here's where we stand today:

- We have in our possession all physical mail-able prizes.  They have not been sent yet. 

For those of you who have sent us updated info via Kickstarter: we've recieved your new addresses - consider it noted.  

For those who have reached out on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or not at all, please use the "contact me" button on our Kickstarter Page to update your info by JULY 1.

- The episode itself is what we call "assembled", meaning all of the shots are in order.  We're currently working with musicians and visual effects editors to create the score and the graphics (you know, magic and stuff).  

- We'll keep you posted on how you'll be able to download the episode when it is complete.  

- Information on the screening is also TBA.  

So, once again, thank you for taking this journey with us. We're eager to get you your goods and hear your feedback!

Your Friends,

The CTG Crew
