      Hi, just looking for an update? When are we likely to see the finished product and receive our "rewards"?

      Nice to have news again! I can understand that doing a film it's very time consuming, however having 0 comments, updates, news, life signal for months is very frustating. Again, a comment every month shouldn't be such an effort. Enjoy and keep it alive! :)

      Love getting the email updates- I am continually blown away by how much work and innovation you guys are putting into this project. I"m not sure why people think the project has died... you are clearly working super hard. Putting together an animated film takes a lot of time, especially when folks are making so much of their own equipment.

      The project has not died, it's very alive and it's awesome. I had the pleasure of visiting my friend Jim recently at his studio. I got a nice little preview of the film and I was quietly blown away with the quality of the project. Jim is being very disciplined and saving the best for the show - there's absolute gold in there!

      When the film will be completed?

    14. Jacob Eichenbaum on

      So...has this project hit a brick wall and splattered or is it still ongoing? The September 4 update said we would have some more pictures after about a week, and that hasn't happened. There also hasn't been an update for almost 2 months. Are y'all still alive and kicking?

    15. The Monkey Butt on

      Hi Jim et al, things seem to have gone a little quiet of late, any word on expected dates?

    16. Jim Batt 2-time creator on

      Hello everyone! For those who are keen for more updates, you'll be happy to see we are trying out a regular weekly studio report while in production. There's a bunch of fresh info up now, so click on through via the 'updates' tab above!

      Hi. Is there going to be any kind of update soon? The lack of communication on this is pretty poor.

      Hey it's July and the last update was months ago? What is going on? Don't keep us in the dark please.

    19. Nacho Díaz on

      Any news? Is this still going on?

    20. Nicholas Brown on

      Thanks for the update guys! Glad to hear your plugging along. Also very happy about your new Aussie addition. Woo!

    21. Nicholas Brown on

      Any news guys? It's been months and nothing. This level of communication is pretty poor...

    22. Jacob Eichenbaum on

      Looking a lot like we got fleeced. The last update included a lot of travel and non-project details but we haven't had anything concrete about this project for a long time. Jim Batt must be glad we aren't investors according to Kickstarter, because this complete lack of information would have led to the plug getting pulled by now.

    23. Lisa May

      I agree with about an update so we know you didn't just steal our money? It's been months that we've heard nothing at all from you. We'd appreciate any form of update!

      Hey guys, the best campaigns are the ones that do not leave the supporters in the dark!

      Every couple weeks just a quick note to tell us all is well or more important if there is a snag.

      Keeping us in the loop gives you a place to let frustration go when suppliers do not meet schedule.Or to share great news that a cover has come in and looks great!!

      BUT, when it has been two months or more and we hear nothing, like some of my fellow supporters have done, we rightfully start to wonder if you are there diligently working away, OR, you determined early it is a fail, and have absconded with our money??

      The cursor is in your screen!!

      Nothing since the project dead in the water?

      I just got your update. I'm very excited about this project, especially since I am an aspiring animator. I don't have much experience under my belt yet (I don't have a show reel) , but would love to help on this project in anyway I can. Please let me know if I could be of assistance in the production.

      Radio silence for months after walking away with a sweet $70k? Unfortunately seems like this may have been a scam.

    30. Meaghan Roya on

      Is there somewhere other then kickstarted that you guys are posting the production updates? fb? instagram?

      Congratulations! So looking forward to following your journey with this. I had just read the story when I saw the tweet from Neil about your Kickstarter - the artwork looks perfect for the story and the finished film should be fabulous :-)

    32. marcelle la cour on

      I'm thrilled you're funded! Can't wait to see some more of the amazing artwork!

      Happy things happen here.
      you convinced me instantly with the animation of the hair stormed by the wind.

      Movies are like the wind that blow among the leaves... sometime literally.

      I've loved this project since the moment I laid eyes on it. It's so inspiring and beautiful! I can't wait to see it! It's so much fun getting updates too. I think I speak for a lot of us when I say I am highly anticipating watching this! So much love and care is going into this...I'm just glad I could help and be a part of it in a small way! :)

      My only problem is waiting! Can't wait to see how it turns out, as it looks to be utterly awesome.

      Is there any chance this could be up for an Oscar when it's finished?

    48. Daniel Raboldt on

      Looks awesome! I can't wait to see the final result :)
