There's now less than one hour before the time runs out on our Kickstarter. As it is, we're 68%, about $1350 short of our goal, so none of the pledges will be charged.
It's frustrating, but then the whole point of the Kickstarter is that we don't get stuck trying to deliver rewards when we can't actually afford to make them.
We'll try to do the best we can. The read-through already set up, and I believe we're going to record voices regardless of the Kickstarter outcome.
The animatic is just going to have to be my "sketchy-matic" version, crude as it is. But this will allow us to make some progress. We'll no doubt be setting up another fundraiser to support animation sooner or later -- I'm considering different options for how to approach that. We might do a longer, more low-key fundraiser, like the Blender Open Movie pre-sale campaigns. Or we might do another rapid crowd-funding campaign like Kickstarter. But we're definitely going to spend some time regrouping.
Thanks to those who supported us. If you haven't, there are still just a few more minutes left!
