There are fans of Doctor Who all across the globe, and we're going to meet them, to find out what 50 years of Doctor Who means to them!

NEED A REASON TO BACK US RIGHT NOW??

How about this really cool piece of Doctor Who history?? This plaque is made, art-worked and finished using exactly the same materials and techniques as the original screen used prop, using the original art department CAD drawings. It can be displayed on the 'feet' which we will provide for this very purpose! 

This plaque is an exact replica of the plaque that is found on the interior of the 2010 (Series 5- 7) TARDIS, and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this, is back our project by £25 or more in the final few hours! It's really THAT SIMPLE! We'll also send the plaque to you in it's own Doctor Who themed box! 

PLEASE NOTE: SOME REWARD TIER DESCRIPTIONS STATING 'INCLUDES ALL REWARDS BELOW' ARE INCORRECT (AS WE ADDED FURTHER REWARDS AFTER THE DESCRIPTIONS WERE WRITTEN AND WERE UNABLE TO CHANGE IT) IF YOU WANT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR TIER BEFORE YOU PLEDGE, THEN CHECK OUT UPDATE #20

If you're looking for something else to splash your cash on, we've managed to source 2 extra special treats as a PREMIUM REWARD for those of you who have a little bit extra to support us with.

SPACE & TIME CONSULTING PRODUCER PACKAGE!

Contact us for more information about these beautiful coasters!
Contact us for more information about these beautiful coasters!

Congratulations on joining our team! We need people like you who know the ins and outs of the show! You picked the most exclusive package around which includes some of the most beautiful handmade coasters.

Using the most iconic Gallifreyan symbols from the Doctor Who series, we are pleased to present this set of four brass effect coasters. You can do more than just sit your mugs on them though; these symbols are also great display pieces on their own. The symbols used are; The Seal of Rassilon, Time Lord Seal, part of the Doctor's name and the symbol from The Master's ring. All symbols were made using the original CAD files used on Doctor Who. The techniques and materials used are the same as the original Timelord Seal used on the costuming of the Timelords in the episodes 'The End of Time'. The coasters are made using brass filled resin (just like the originals), and are hand art-worked and polished to give them an antique brass 'distressed' finish. The coasters come packed in their own Doctor Who themed Gift box.

You will also receive the following - a)'Consulting Producer' credit for you on the big screen b) a ONE OF A KIND poster signed by the artist and team c) signed DVD/Blu-ray d) signed copy of 'Adventures with the Wife in Space' book by Neil Perryman e) COMPLETE SIGNED SET of the 'Doctor in the Dark' limited edition prints PLUS a one off hand drawing of your choice! Not only that, we will invite you to sit with us as part of the creative team at the premiere screening (transport and accommodation not provided) and also invite you out to dinner to celebrate afterwards. Now if that doesn't excite you - nothing will! All of this and a few more surprises, only in the £350 package!!

Wibbly Wobbly Paperweight Package!

This package is for the ULTIMATE collector. This lovely wibbly wobbly paper weight (The gold sphere in the centre of the picture) is based on the Gallifreyan sphere on top of The Staff of Rassilon. The same object was also used for an ink well in the same episode which can be seen on the table used for the Time Lords council. The original prop was made by Nick Robatto, and recently Nick created very similar objects which are featured on the new Tardis console!

He has recreated it here but has made it slightly larger and given it a little more detail. The sphere is weighted at the bottom so it will wibble and wobble pleasingly (but not roll unless you give it a really good shove!) before coming to rest.

You will also receive the following - a)'Consulting Producer' credit for you on the big screen b) a ONE OF A KIND poster signed by the artist and team c) signed DVD/Blu-ray d) signed copy of 'Adventures with the Wife in Space' book by Neil Perryman e) COMPLETE SIGNED SET of the 'Doctor in the Dark' limited edition prints PLUS a one off hand drawing of your choice! Not only that, we will invite you to sit with us as part of the creative team at the premiere screening (transport and accommodation not provided) and also invite you out to dinner to celebrate afterwards. Now if that doesn't excite you - nothing will! All of this and a few more surprises, only in the £350 package!!

Doctor Who: Celebrating 50 Years of Fandom - Photo Mosaic £2 Reward Tier!

We are absolutely thrilled with the amount of support we have received from you all and just want to say THANK YOU! However, we have received a few requests to create a smaller reward so that more people can get involved. So, we did just that! Take a peek at our new reward!

For just £2, you can get your face into our very own photo mosaic! Even though the final design is not yet completed, we're hoping to get as many fans as possible involved. Once our Kickstarter campaign is complete, we will email all of our supporters with the details on how this can be purchased. So don't forget, if you want to get yourself included in our 'Doctor Who: Celebrating 50 Years of Fandom' photo mosaic poster -  be sure to back our project with £2 NOW!

This November Doctor Who celebrates its 50th anniversary, and we want to join in with the party!

Doctor Who fans are like no other, devoted to the time lord and his companions, but vilified for their passion. We want to know why. Why Doctor Who? Why so much enthusiasm? And why is it so different from any other hobby?

Where other documentaries have lingered on the negative side of fandom, we want to celebrate the passion that lies within fans of Doctor Who, exploring the Whovian world and how the passion of the fans has kept the show alive. We'll explore how Doctor Who fans have incorporated their devotion into everyday life, from writing blogs and books, to those who make it their mission to collect every TARDIS Teapot, Dalek Duvet and Cyberman Clock!

It's these things that we want to explore, because without these passionate fans, Doctor Who wouldn't be back on our screens for it's 50th anniversary celebration!

We need your help!

The funding of this campaign is essential to enable us to not only finance the filming of multiple important upcoming events, but also a number of key interviews around the country that still need to be done. It will also cover the costs of clearing copyrighted clips from the show and audio tracks.

We are lucky enough to have reached our goal, however, all additional funding would allow us to continue into post-productionand would contribute towards the very costly needs of audio mixing, color-correction, and the final online cut. Additionally, exceeding our minimum goal would allow us to increase the quality of the production values in the film (animations, music, title graphics, and more). Every little bit counts, so we really appreciate whatever you can help with!

Thank you so much for your interest in our project, and please consider supporting us in other ways as well. One of the BEST WAYS to help us spread the word is by posting a link to this Kickstarter page (http://kck.st/TN0cTz) on Facebook! You can also spread links to our facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/fliptheswitchmedia), and our website (www.fliptheswitchmedia.com) to everyone and everywhere you can!

The Rewards

We are so grateful for all of your support and have come up with a series of great rewards to show our sincere thanks! Below is a visual breakdown of the descriptions to the right. Some are available for a LIMITED TIME ONLY, so if there is something you really want - be quick before someone else gets the last!

Adventures with the Wife in Space (Sue and Neil Perryman)

Doctor Who superfan Neil Perryman decided to share his passion of Doctor Who with his wife. Sounds pretty normal, until you consider that she is in no way a fan of the show. What a perfect reason to sit down and watch every single episode from the beginning with each other!

Neil decided to chronicle the progression of their journey on his website www.wifeinspace.com - not only that, but Faber and Faber announced they will be publishing Neil's book next year, aptly titled Adventures with the Wife in Space: Life with Doctor Who, to mark Doctor Who's fiftieth anniversary.

Rob Hull was recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records last year for owning a record breaking 571 unique Dalek models. Among Mr Hull’s collection of Daleks is a life-sized model that cost him over £2,000. But not everyone at home is pleased with the obsession. Mr Hull’s wife Dawn wants to see the robots exterminated. She said: ‘I am not that keen on them. I’d rather they were not there, I’d rather have them in the garage. He think's I’m crackers but it’s his hobby.’

We've been lucky enough to already speak to Rob, who has worked on various Doctor Who animations throughout the years. He was kind enough to spend a bit of time putting together our short teaser video at the top of this page. Rob uses his love of Doctor Who creatively, making various animations and movies around the topic. 

YOU - The Fans!

Doctor Who Fan
Doctor Who Fan

We've already attended the Dimensions Doctor Who Convention last year and managed to speak to some very interesting people! But we want to meet more of you! We managed to put together a short 15 minute pilot episode and screened it to a small group of people, letting us see who had the best stories and who we'd like to see some more of.

(Please note that any contributor could withdraw from this project at any time.)

The money donated to us through Kickstarter will be spent on a number of things. Mainly this will go towards the costs of equipment hire and post production costs. It will also help support transport to meet the various fans around the world.

Our film will hopefully be completed in early October 2013, and released in November, which will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the fantastic show. We can't do this without the help of the fans, and this is a fantastic opportunity for YOU to get involved! Every penny donated to us will go towards making the best documentary possible.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Being an independent production company andmaking this film without a large production group's support, means that there's no chance that a clash of opinions will delay the film and no risk of it being put aside because of changing market conditions.

Our Executive Producer has many years experience in the Media Industry, so the project will constantly be under professional guidance. The team are passionate Doctor Who fans, therefore we are 100% committed to completing the project in time to celebrate the 50th Anniversary.

As there are many fans of Doctor Who around the globe, if for any reason any of our contributors no longer wanted to take part in the documentary, it should be simple enough to replace them with someone else. This will ensure that our production remains on schedule throughout the filming period.

We are a small crew, so a potential problem could be illness, or crew availability. This has been prepared for by each member of the crew learning all roles needed during filming. For example, if our Camera Assistant became ill or unavailable, another member of the group could quite easily fulfil that role. This will ensure there are no delays, and that our project is completed on time.

If for any reason we were to run into any uncooperation from the BBC with regards to the Doctor Who brand - the documentary could be adapted to feature other sci-fi shows. If this were to happen, we would update all of our backers, and hold meetings with all contributors to discuss wether or not they would still like to be involved.

FAQ

  • First of all, THANK YOU! If you're getting a reward that does not include the art print but want it, here's an what you do:

    1) How many do you want? Which print? There will be various different prints released during the remainder of the project, each priced at £20.

    2) Add that amount to your donation. Example: let's say you want to pledge £100 to get a signed book plus a DVD of the film etc., and want to add the Matt Smith 'Doctor in the Dark' art print to it, donate £100 + £20 = £120. At checkout, choose the £100 reward. If you live outside the UK, you'll have to pay for international shipping.

    At the end of the campaign, a survey will be sent out to confirm you adding the art print.

    If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send us a message!

    Last updated:
  • Of course you can! Just add £10 for the DVD or £20 for the Blu-ray, but select the original award you want. Send us a little message just to confirm, and we will make sure you get the right rewards when we're done!

    Last updated:
  • Sure! Just add £10 to your previous reward tier and we will even sign it for you! If you live outside the UK, please ask us about shipping - it will depend on what the other reward is and whether they can be shipped together!

    Last updated:
  • What a brilliant choice! The pin badges really are beautiful and a nice souvenir!

    1) First of all, decide how many you are wanting - there are 10 badges in total, each priced at £5. If you are wanting more than 3, contact us and we can possibly create a specific price tier for you!

    2) Add that amount onto your donation. For Example: If you are on the £25 reward tier and want to add on a pin badge, you select the £25 tier and ADD-ON £5 for the badge. This means your total will be £30 for the £25 reward.

    3) We will then make a note on your file that you increased your pledge and contact you towards the end of the campaign to find out which badge you would like.

    If you have any questions or are unsure about how to purchase ADD-ON's, just send us a message and we will talk you through it :)
