Strange Thing Complete!

Hello Backers!

So the film is now 100% complete and making the rounds in the world of film festivals. I am aiming high so I've only submitted to Sundance and SXSW so far but I will be expanding to more festivals shortly. I'm aiming for top tier festivals so if any of you have any suggestions for awesome high level festivals to submit to, I'd love them!

I know not everyone has gotten all their incentives yet, DVD's will be going out this week and the lower end items will be going out as well. My deepest apologies for the delay but they'll get to you, I promise!

As for the digital downloads, I am trying to think of the best way to do that in the simplest way possible, it may be a vimeo link I put up for a week for you all to use to download the film with or perhaps it will be a dropbox link for a short period of time, I'm not entirely certain yet.

Things are moving forward on the feature which I will keep you all posted on and thanks so much again for all of your support!

Have a wonderful day and sorry again for all the incentive delays!

Strange Thing is ALMOST Complete!

Good Morning Kickbackers!

I just wanted to give you all an update on the status of the film which is....we are almost done! We are racing to get everything finalized by mid September so we can be considered for the Sundance Film Festival! I hear they have an awesome midnight program for science fiction/horror and other genre films and I think we have a good shot of being included in that program.

Also since my last update we have gotten the final Strange Thing Posters in, check out the picture below. It is a little different then the last mockup but I think in the end we've got something completely kick ass. The title now matches the motion title that is being used in the short.

For all of you waiting for your incentives, I held off on sending them to make sure that I had all the incentives together before I shipped anything, so if you have a T-shirt or poster coming your way and you aren't waiting for a DVD as well, you should be getting a package in the next couple of weeks. If you have a DVD as well, I am going to wait and ship everything at once, so just hang in there a little longer!

The final steps are in motion and it is all thanks to your support, so thank you, thank you, thank you all!

Have a wonderful weekend!
