Tom Waits For No One: the Illustrated Scrapbook

5 likes

Dear friends and backers, we promised a follow-up effort and it's just one week away.

On Saturday March 28, we're kicking off a new campaign to fund a limited edition hardcover book featuring the art, character studies and numerous artifacts from Tom Waits For No One. 

We've sharpened our focus, narrowed the goal and created new rewards that are limited edition or one of a kind. 

"Thank you" to each of you who viewed the film on YouTube and supported the first campaign. We've worked hard to create rewards we think you'll love. 

Should the book get funded at its modest goal, we'll open up stretch goals to fund the rescue of the live action footage, as well as restore the film itself.

Here we go! 

John Lamb and the Tom Waits For No One team

Thank you!

To everyone who backed this project and spread the word, thank you! 

We've gotten some great insight from this campaign and will begin a new one to focus on the book and the rotoscope drawings. We'll let you know when it kicks off!

Original rotoscope drawing from Tom Waits For No One. The beautiful, hand drawn images are rendered on 12 inch by 10 inch tracing paper. These drawings are unique to the rotoscoped animation process and include the original scene and sequence numbering which was written by hand by the animators in 1979. For Kickstarter only, these drawings will be signed by the director! Protected in a plastic poly bag, each drawing will be shipped in bend-resistant packaging and reinforced with posterboard.
