10 Days Left! + We've passed $16,000!!! + Giveaway Winners
I honestly didn't expect this to happen.
With ten days left, we passed $16,000 — in large part due to our new Co-Executive Producers, ReKindle Studios and some guy named… Lawrence McAlpin? (It's my brother. He's the smart one in the family; he's not a professional artist.)
That means all the Co-Executive Producer reward levels are CLAIMED — for now. If/when we pass the base goal, I will open up more producer level rewards afterward. (After that point, a new Co-Executive Producer level reward would fund additional videos. I'll talk more about stretch goals later.)
What passing $16,000 on Friday night ALSO meant is that I am also going to write and draw movie review comics with Kurt and Jason reviewing twenty-four nerd movies: the first nine Star Wars features — wait, technically the Clone Wars movie counts, so I guess that should be ten.

These review comics will be posted here in the Kickstarter backer updates, on Patreon, and on the Multiplex 10 website. They will be collected into the Art of Multiplex 10 ebook — and, because there are so many of them, possibly into a separate ebook that will be for available for purchase — UNLIKE the Art of Multiplex 10 ebook.
I am going to aim to release one every week. But the deadlines on the videos will come first, so it could be slower than that. Also note that I only do these comics IF we actually make it to the funding goal… but that seems pretty likely at this point.
So it looks like I'm going to be doing a (semi-)regular webcomic for a little while, too, in addition to the animation. Even though a review comic isn't QUITE the same as the old webcomic, it'll be interesting to see where this goes. I hope. I've had a little fun with the comic strip review format in the past, so all I can really promise is that they will be roughly twenty-four pages of comics, and they will be movie reviews… from a certain point of view.
$10,000 Milestone Prize Pack Giveaway — I still haven't heard back from one of the winners of the FIRST giveaway, but the other two were Neil Bryer and Ben Thuronyi! Congratulations to Ben and Neil, and thank you again to everyone who helped get us to the $10,000 milestone.
$14,000 Milestone Prize Pack Giveaway — I've just contacted all three people who won the second set of three prize packs. Check your Kickstarter messages to see if you were one of the lucky so-and-sos!
One Cameo Appearance for every 100 Backers — I've contacted the winner of the first cameo appearance, as well: congratulations to Richard Par!
The second cameo winner will be announced either after the 200th pledge comes in — or when the campaign ends (in the highly unlikely scenario that this campaign ends with less than 200 backers), and then any additional winners will be announced after the next 100th backer.
