      Hi Lars-Erik,

      Wow you must be psychic! The CPT website is now up and live at: www.centralparktale.com.
      We will be sending out a Kickstarter update--along with passwords for the Production Diaries this evening.
      Many thanks for following up. We are psyched to share the designs--and look forward to hearing your thoughts!

      Really looking forward to seeing how this turns out. Speaking of which, shouldn't the website and behind-the-scenes production blog we're supposed to have access to be up soon? It wouldn't be much of a production blog if we only got access after the project is done.

      Thanks so much for the kind words everyone! We are so BEYOND THRILLED. Can't thank you enough for helping to make CPT a reality!

      I think my middle school students in Washington Heights will LOVE this project. I can't wait to expose them to Ms. Barcos's writing chops and to all the other talented artists on board too. Inspiring...! Classroom visits anyone...? Could be a good PR move.

      @Jacqui, thanks for letting me know. Pledge updated, can't wait to see the PoC as a finished product!
      @TheLurker, desperately trying to cool off my Kickstarter addiction. Thought I'd find a nice, cozy spot off the grid from where I usually roam. Besides, the artistic direction on this one seems to set it apart from the usual run-of-the-mill animated movies out lately. And who doesn't love a good animation?
