Shine On You Crazy Backers
It’s Monday, Monday, gotta get down on Monday. And it’s a special one, because it’s the last Monday of our Kickstarter campaign. Yes, it all comes to an end this week, on Thursday to be precise. Everything has to end. Even the universe will cease to exist someday — that is, unless we’re living in a computer simulation and our virtual program can be restarted with the push of a button.
Anyway. I’ve been teasing a lot about this and it’s time to show you the result. I feel this is going to be our best update yet and, ironically, it doesn’t have much to do with Asylum itself. It’s about you.
What began as a crazy idea that I was unsure it would be well received developed into something that has the potential to become huge. We received over one hour of material for our Backer Spotlight program with many themes. Some backers followed the guide I sent and others came up with something completely different. This diversity is exactly what I intended — amazingly, even though the themes and mood of each video are so varied, the result is surprisingly coherent. Each backer has a story to tell and there’s an underlying theme of “craziness” that goes so well with this Kickstarter which, I’m sure, has been as much for you as it was for us. To think some backers almost didn’t send their videos because they thought were boring, or they were too nervous… you will blown away by the result!
This preview will hopefully turn into a larger and very important part of A Tour of Hanwell documentary as we keep receiving material. The beautiful music is also from our backers With Our Arms To The Sun.
By now I must have seen this a dozen times while editing it… and I could keep watching it many dozens more. I believe it embodies the goal of Senscape which is to focus on you, its community. I hope you love this as much as I did:
As I write this, we’re close to reaching our first stretch goal. Lots of things can happen until Thursday and that mysterious top goal (which will be revealed later today) could become a reality. Please, help us spread the word about this Kickstarter in its final, exciting moments! And thank you!
