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.
i knew youd make it.
glad to help put you over the top.
PS jamal you owe me that dance darling.
HOW EXCITING!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Woohoo! Let there be dancing in the streets! ...literally! ...well...on screen, at least... Yay!!!
Bring on the squirrels!
(My simple dream is a squirrel version of Saturday Night Fever disco dancing. :p )
Here we are . From the family, Jerome, Sebastien, Corinne and Patrick, good luck ! keep going!
Thanks everyone for your amazing words of support and inspiration! Down to the wire---I know we'll make it!! And it's all because of you!!!
C'mon, folks! This is an awesome idea that needs your help.
@Lars-Erik: Agreed. I think this is going to be amazing. When I told S.D. about this project, I received a, "Seriously? West Side Story? ...meets Happy Feet? How have you not just thrown your wallet at them, already?" ;)
Just upped my pledge, heres hoping the target is met.
@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?
End of the Kicktraq day...we are now on the So Close: Ends Today list. With only $816 left before funding...time to be excited!!!
Hi Jacqui & Daniel. This looks amazing! ! I've sent an email to over 70 people in the last 48 hrs, encouraging them to support CPT. This deserves to happen!
Hi Lars-Erik. Just checked w/ the post office. Standard shipping to Norway will cost $6.00 for the cap. Thanks so much for your pledge!
@Lars-Erik: So...Mister Hero of the Adventure Game Revival Movement...fancy meeting you here! ...and why aren't you on Broken Sword? Hmmm?
Hope this succeeds, it'd be a great experience to be a part of. I need the shipping cost for the cap for Norway please though, to update my pledge.
Thanks for the votes of confidence!! I have a pretty good feeling we're gonna make it--thanks to all the amazing backers who've stepped up and believe in this as much as we do!
Jonathan--you're the bomb, thanks for taking out that ad. Genius.
And Lurker, don't worry, our squirrels are primed and ready for the next street battle!!
Fingers crossed guys--we're in the home stretch!!
Wow, we got a high-tier backer! This just might happen. I bought a small ad on the popular art site DeviantArt for this week, although I doubt that has helped much, haha. Only brought a 131 people to the page so far...
A little over 80% funded! That will put us on Kicktraq's 'So-Close' list. ...and the 48-hour reminder e-mails have gone out! I hope those squirrels are warming up for the next number!
That's awesome Jonathan, thank you!!
Cool project, hope we reach your goal. I'll do what I can to spread the word.
Depends....where is it being shipped?
How much would the international postage be for the cap ?
Awesome, thanks Doug!
@Anne - there is a #squirrels tag for twitter
i pledged instantly as soon as i saw it had squirrels in it ! :)
Yes we love Mikros too! They are the real deal. And super fun to work with :)
I instantly pledged as soon as I heard that the guys who did 'Logorama' will be doing the animation. If anyone hasn't seen 'Logorama' yet I highly recommend seeking it out.
The feature will have dialogue with voice actors. The teaser will just be a dance-off and will not have any VO. Thanks for your support!!
Is this going to be a voiced animation with voice actors or just dancing?
I am happy to be able to help for such an awesome project.D
Yay!! We're so excited! This looks great!

This is so exciting... xxxooo jan and robb reesman
what a great idea! i worked with daniel at ILM and look forward to watching the progress. i am very excited and wish you complete success!
Thanks for the support Anne! Very much appreciated.
Good luck....hope you make your goal! Tweeted it and will try and recruit some additional supporters!!
This is a great idea! It would definitely be awesome if you incorporate parkour into the way the squirrels maneuver through the park.
Wonderful concept. I am excited for you and hope you make your goal x 10!
