Update #21

Braaaaaaaains!!! (as related to Fiscal Responsibility)

Hey Goon Backers! We wanted to take a moment to give you a little more information about the FINANCIAL DETAILS of our Kickstarter campaign... namely, how we're SPENDING your hard-earned dollars! But of course, a simple PIE CHART would never suffice, so we've prepared a very special "Goon-esque" graphic of our BUDGET BREAKDOWN. Which is to say, we HOLLOWED out a ZOMBIE SKULL and CARVED UP his HEAD GOO!!!

As you can see, FEATURE FILM-quality story reels are a TREMENDOUS undertaking, and we hope this answers a few questions for you. On behalf of everyone at Blur Studio, It's VERY important to us that you understand EVERY DOLLAR is going into creating the greatest STORY REEL we can possibly produce... one that will give "The Goon" Film a real shot at becoming a reality... and we couldn't have done it without YOU!!!

      Holy smokes! 250k for storyboard art? /4 = 62,500 for one artist for 8 months. /8 = 7,812.5 per month. /22 days (assuming 4 weekends off and 30 days in a month) = 355.11 per day. /8 hours = 44.4 dollars an hour.
      I am in the wrong line of work.

      Obviously I want to pay you guys an extra $10-15 to go see this movie in theaters, and then another $35 to buy it on Blu Ray. I just want to know that, if all else fails many years down the line, I'll be able to watch the story reel (I'd be willing to pay good money for it!)

      @Jason... if the fates decide to ultimately doom our pitch efforts, we will definitely try and find a way to show you the story reel you funded! (but let's not speak of doom!)

      Thanks for the input, RKDN and Impact... these were all just estimates but it helps to hear from people who've gone through this before!

      Pretty penny the Storyboard Artists are making. I need to bone up my portfolio to get a job doing that.

      @ Jacques Labbé I assume it's not a final salary that artists will get but more like a burn rate, i.e. including office expenses and so on.

      Storyboard artists are pretty well paid ($7800+ a month)! I'm in the wrong line of work (because I can't draw to save my life).

      So much for creative direction... :)

      Is there any way we could get a promise that, if the movie is never made, we could one day see a release of the story reel?

      Yeah, Impact is totally right on the money with this.

      Hey guys ... Kickstarter gets 5% and Amazon is normally around 3.5% and you should normally allow at least 1.5% for credit cards that bounce. So the amount you have for Amazon should be doubled in your budget. Just speaking from experience.
