Sorry we've been so quiet - update and trailer

Hi everyone,

Sorry we've been so quiet since our last update in the summer. If there's one thing we've learned from this experience, it's that working on a project like this and relying on people who are giving their precious spare time and goodwill, it just takes a really long time to get things done. We have so many wonderful people who've been involved in the four new films we've been making, but most of them aren't getting paid and all of them have day jobs or other commitments which take up most of their time. As such, even though we wrapped filming on all four in the summer, we're still in post-production on all four films, though we're now nearing completion. Clara and the Trolls is essentially finished, Two Brothers is in the final stages of nailing down the music, the soundtrack for the Boy and the Tengu is being composed right now, and Stinky is almost ready for narration and music, so we're nearly there. 

We've also decided to overhaul our website, which was much needed, but also takes considerable time to get right. This week we've seen the first drafts of what it will look like, and we're really excited about it, but it will be several more weeks until it's ready.

As such, we're now hoping to launch at some point in the next two months. We'd originally hoped it would be early February, but it now looks like it may slip beyond that. But things are finally coming together, and we're hopeful that we'll soon be in a position to launch. Thank you again for your amazing generosity and for your patience over the last few months.

We thought you might enjoy this little trailer for our first "season" - you'll see clips from all five of our films here, and hopefully it will get you excited for when we start to release the new ones shortly. Please let us know if you have any questions. With all the delays, we've also been delayed in fulfilling our "rewards" for our backers, but we hope to get that done soon too as we have everything necessary nailed down.

Enjoy the trailer below and we'll hopefully have another update for you soon!
