Risks and challenges
Projects like this rely on the fans; this project is a labour of love and a love letter to both Roddy McDowall and the countless Fright Night fans around the world. Without your support this project may not be completed.
Pledges must take into consideration the logistics of producing a 3-hour documentary, our aim is release by March 2016. However as we have already undertaken a large scale project like this with Leviathan - We are only too aware of production delays - for all sorts of reasons. On this project we are very confident especially as we have the support of TOM HOLLAND himself who will also act as Producer and Creative Consultant.
If there are any delays YOU would be informed straight away and kept up-to-date on the projects production.
The biggest reason for production delays is quite simply that the entire crew have day jobs and other projects, however we have factored that into our delivery estimates.
Please note that international deliveries may take longer due to customs and postage regulations.
We have a dedicated team behind this project and are supported by endless members of the cast and crew. Currently all other rewards and delivery are expected for August 2015.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
