[TOR] You all continue to surprise and amaze me!
There will be a Portuguese language edition of The Time of Reflection.
Because within an hour of my last update, backer Carlos Simões increased his pledge high enough to make that happen. Thank you, Carlos!
I'm adding a new reward at $4 which is the same as the $3 reward, but we'll replace the English language booklet with the Portuguese edition (it will be a smaller print run, so it will cost a bit more to produce). Or you can just add $1 to your current pledge to swap out the English language booklet for this Portuguese edition. Our timeline is mid-next year for producing and printing this translated comic, so it will be a later delivery.
Additional copies will be $2, same as the English language version.
I'm overwhelmed as, once again, I've needed to post another stretch reward and goal much sooner than I expected. But hopefully you'll like this one:
IF WE REACH $5K...
Would you like to be cast as a background actor (or "extra") in Captain America 2: Winter Soldier, scheduled to shoot in and around Cleveland, OH in 2013?
I promise you nothing. But I will share with you (in a series of backer-only updates and Q+As) everything you need to know to find and apply for paid "extra" work on that set or the sets of other upcoming feature films and television shows, regardless of your past experience (or even interest!) in acting.
And you don't need to live in Hollywood to do it; in fact, of the twenty-three new one-hour dramas premiering on American television this fall, the L.A. Times reports that only two of them are filmed in Los Angeles County.
I spent a month as a background actor this past summer and never drove more than 3 hours away to do it, and--while my resume includes stage, commercial, and independent film work (I just wanted the experience on larger sets), many of the people I worked with on Iron Man 3, Safe Haven, and two episodes of NBC's Revolution had never acted before. And some of them traveled from other parts of the country to be a part of it.
I can't promise that you'll get into the Avengers sequel... but I can tell you what you need to know to make the attempt, what to expect, and some of my experiences and lessons learned when I found and worked these jobs.
Thanks so much!
