Well it’s been another amazing couple of days for us at Aardman HQ. I've been saying “wow” so frequently that I've started to resemble a goldfish.
After our story was picked up by various news sites and featured in the weekly Kickstarter newsletter, our campaign to bring back Morph is now over 70% funded and we have over 1000 backers. Wow.
So first off, hello and welcome to all the new members of Team Morph! I can’t tell you how excited I am to have you on board and I hope that I can repay your kindness with lots of interesting insights from the production floor and exclusive backer rewards.
And speaking of rewards…We’re busily putting together some extra packages to satisfy the demand from our pledgers. More on that next week, but for now I wanted to address the questions we've had about pledging for multiple rewards:
- All pledges of £5 or above will receive a digital download of the finished episodes. You’re helping to make this happen, you will get the first view of Morph’s finished adventures!
- I had requests for a combined pre-loved clay & DVD pack, so you can now choose this from the list of rewards
- There were also requests for a combined clay, DVD and t-shirt pack – I love your enthusiasm! You can now find this on the reward list too.
So I think that’s it for now! Before you head off to start your weekends, I’ll leave you with a clip of how it all began. This is Morph’s first ever TV appearance on Take Hart, presented by the wonderful Tony Hart, which was broadcast on BBC1 on the 15th of February, 1977.
