Risks and challenges
With anything creative, there is always a risk of production delays and identifying the right team of talented individuals to create the phenomenon we envisage. Our project plan includes sufficient time and resources to execute all of our goals; all we need now is the financial support of the KickStarter community. We have invested our heart, soul, time and money and have already located and begun working with a well-established group who’s creative projects include work for Pixar, Disney, Jim Henson’s Muppets, LeapFrog, San Francisco Music Box Company, the sci-fi movie The Fly, Being John Malkovich. Additionally, one of the partners has a long history of sculpting dolls including the Spice Girls, Rita Hayworth, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake which makes her the perfect choice for sculpting the characters in Christmas at Jim’s Place. Based upon our story, they have drawn and delivered 6 potential faces for Jim, the main character from which we’ve selected the face of our hero.
This company will be instrumental in helping us to lock in an illustrator and screenplay writer with exactly the right skill sets and the time to commit to the project due dates.
For delivery of the rewards, we have identified the vendors and our schedule is designed to maximize both creation and delivery of the merchandise to our new KickStarter fans in time for Christmas 2014.
