Anomalisa Timeline

Posted by Starburns Industries, Inc. (Creator)

Dear Kickstarters,

We wanted to clear up why things seem to be taking twice as long as expected.

The original kickstarter campaign for Anomalisa was for a 40 minute short. The success of our campaign provided us the opportunity to secure additional funding and expand the project into a full-length feature. This has allowed us to preserve the original scope of Charlie’s script, without compromise or outside influence.

Production is now 70% complete and when finished, Anomalisa will come in at around 80 minutes in length.

We apologize if this was not made clear in earlier updates but the great news is that all of your long awaited movie rewards will now be for a full-length feature film!

Thank you again for your continued support and patience. This all started with you and we haven’t forgotten that.

Thank you!

The Anomalisa Team

      Thanks for the update! Don't worry about us, just make a great film! I'd rather it take longer and accomplish what it set out to do in the first place (or better), than make any compromises because your team felt they were in any sort of time crunch. I trust you guys, and I want you to do what you want to do, 'cause what you want to do looks like it rocks! Have fun!

      I agree with most other posts. Feature length was news to me and I am delighted. More frequent updates would be much appreciated.

      Understood Gabe. Because it's a closed set, we can't share anything in the way of weeklies or production stills. We'll try to post updates more often, and we have a few other interesting things in the works. Please be patient and stay tuned.

      Excited to hear that it's now full length, but maybe we could get some more (frequent) updates? Maybe some dailies or production stills every few weeks? Kinda don't feel very involved at all...

      I anticipate that our patience shall be more than rewarded. Do you guys have a release date? 2014 or 2015? Will be great to see two Kaufman directed things around with his How and Why series, perhaps that's why things have been a bit slow (though stop motion is time consuming either way).

      Extra 40 minutes? This makes me very happy!!

      The best projects often bloom into (un)expected greatness !

      As a live-action filmmaker, I can't even begin to contemplate the complexity of what you're doing. But it must be incredibly fun, if exhausting. Looking forward to the result whenever it's complete!

      This is supremely exciting news. Can't wait to see the finished project, it sounds just so good.
