About this project

Key15th Returns for a First of its Kind Project - A Documentary on Key!

Greetings, anime and visual novel fans!  The money raised from this Kickstarter will go towards funding a documentary which will explore the real-life locations found in works from KEY / Visual Art's.  Key is the studio responsible for productions such as Clannad, Kanon, AIR, Little Busters!, Angel Beats!, and Rewrite.  Specifically, it will allow three team members (Clannad Man as host, a professional videographer, and a guide/translator) to travel to Japan for 17 days to seek out Key-centric landmarks and describe the history and significance of these areas.  This project is an extension of the Key15th Initiative, a fan-organized effort to unite Key fans from around the world while encouraging the studio to officially localize their visual novel productions.

Prior Projects

Previously, the staff of Key15th has worked on the 'Key15th Anniversary Letter Project' and '「key15th」: A History Of Emotion'.  Both projects were funded out of pocket yet were successful due to the incredible amount of support they received from Key fans from around the world. 

In both circumstances, the projects' capabilities were limited by the resources internally available to us.  We feel honored that the reception for our efforts has been so positive despite these limitations.  A properly funded project will allow for the creation of a unique, otherwise unattainable production which will be enjoyed by Key fans from around the world.

Steven Schoenwald (aka the Clannad Man) has been involved with the Key community for years.  He was responsible for leading the English Localization Projects for three Key visual novels (Clannad, Little Busters!, and Tomoyo After) and has helped administrate several successful Key fan initiatives as well as prominent Facebook pages pertaining to Key.


Rewards

No one affiliated with Key15th looks to profit off of this project.  Furthermore, the purpose of this project is to enhance the Key community.  Therefore, as an incentive for your support, we would like to provide you with rewards pertaining to the project's focus.

Each reward has been crafted to provide a combination of uniqueness, excitement, value. Therefore, I'll use this space to provide additional information on the rewards from what can be seen on the side of the screen.  In the event that the project is not fully funded, a full refund will be provided to supporters for all donations provided.

Update: For detailed information on Rewards, read on.  To see the rewards in a spreadsheet format, please see the Google Doc HERE.

[$5+] THE KEY KAZOKU:  Being part of the Key Kazoku isn't just about fandom, it's about fellowship. Therefore, for a base donation of $5, you will be recognized as a contributor to the documentary in the credits of the production. Furthermore, we will provide you with updates on our progress as the documentary gets underway. Please note that all donations of $5 or more will receive these benefits, regardless of whether this reward is claimed.

Musicians range from the highly regarded Kyle Landry, Animenz, TehIshter, and The Setting Sun to lesser known artists from around the world who give the album an ethnic flair.

Other Information

Just one note: The FAQ section has been updated and can now be found underneath the 'Risks and challenges' section of this page.

Risks and challenges

Due to the level of preparation required to make this production a success, the risks in achieving our goals can be considered calculated and moderate. Traveling preparations and scheduling will be done well in advance if they haven't already been. The project staff is well versed in their roles and will be ready for action once the documentary is set to begin. (The production crew is being provided by The Grand X-Change Co. based out of Cleveland, Ohio, USA.) The team is multi-disciplined, so if for some reason a member of the production staff is unable to perform their duties, another person will be able to step in on their behalf and fulfill said duty.

The biggest risk to the documentary's success is the weather. While the climate in Japan is predicted to be mild this year, severe weather can derail even the best laid plans. If inclement weather arises, the production team will reschedule that day's activities to a more hospitable location. We intend to be on a 24 hour weather watch and constantly travel to achieve the ultimate Key visual novel/anime pilgrimage!

I have spent years of my life working on and promoting Key works because I feel they have the ability to positively change people's outlooks on life. No one wants this project to succeed more than I do; therefore, even in the event of atypically poor weather or equipment failure, I will endeavor to do whatever I can to provide you with unique content you will enjoy, be it footage of staff interviews or extended coverage of more protected areas, even if it means extending my personal funds more than I would otherwise like. This is a project for the fans and by the fans, and I intend to make it a positive experience for Key fans from around the world!
