The Next Step...

Hey, guys!   Larry here.

I've done just about everything I can think of to plug this thing.   

I will absolutely never give up on "Four Tanks", so if this Kickstarter fails I'll just go back to investor hunting.  

One thing I realized is that I have no name power.  I'm not famous.   If I were, many more people would know about and likely support what we're doing.  

So, I do have about 3 other projects in the work under a new company I started myself called "Eddy Spaghetti Productions".   One, a documentary, is just about finalized and will be sent to festivals and distributors very soon.   I've been getting a lot of interview requests about it and there's word that the Huffington Post MIGHT run a story on it.   That would help awareness about what we're doing a LOT.

Another is a feature film with Dian Bachar on board to star and with Mark Ordesky on board to help produce.   That one is really building up to be something special.  We have our first investor attached, our paperwork ready to go, etc.   If I focused on this and got it finished, would I then be in a better position a year from now to make "Four Tanks" happen?

Another animated pilot I created is in production right now too.   "Captain Wilcox vs The End of the World".   Zombies, mutants, all that good stuff.   Again... if I finish this... who knows who I might meet or attract along the way.  

So my gut says that maybe I should focus on the projects that are definitely moving forward rather than beating mercilessly on the "Four Tanks" drum and annoying everybody around me.   Maybe if I can gain a little more power, I can make "Four Tanks" myself without having to worry about bugging people.  

What do you think?   

Of course, I would very much prefer for the Kickstarter Page to suddenly be tweeted by people like Harry Knowles, Felicia Day, Chris Hardwick, etc etc and for it to explode.  

But that's just not happening (Or atleast, has not happened yet). 

So... what do you guys think would be a wise next step?   

Thanks. 

Larry

      I think you should send a clip in to the Ellen Show. That may sound silly, but she loves this sort of thing, loves to spread the word out about cool stuff. Couldn't hurt.

      I kind of agree. I have been amazed that we cannot any major coverage for this web series.
      I have myself contacted lots of outlets without any success.
      I think the series is great and I don’t ever play MMORPGs , I see how good the series is.
      But what can we do , we are the Firefly of webseries.
      If this “Kickstarter” does not make it we should try again in a later date when maybe we can expose the series to more people before doing a new kickstarter launch.
