UPDATE #2 - Transolar Galactica on DVD!
Thanks to the generous contributions of some very supportive friends of Transolar, we're now able to produce a run of Transolar Galactica DVDs and offer them as a reward in our Kickstarter project!
The DVD will include BOTH seasons of Transolar Galactica, along with tons of bonus content (Behind the scenes, Outtakes, Event videos, and even commentary!)
If you'd like to receive the Transolar Galactica DVD, just increase your Kickstarter pledge as follows:
- Backers at the $10 & $25 tier, add $10 to your original pledge
- Backers at the $50 tiers and above, add $15 to your original pledge
If we reach our goal, we'll be including a spot in our Kickstarter backer surveys where we will confirm your increased pledge and DVD order.
UPDATE #1 - A Message from the Crew
A personal message from the cast & crew of Transolar Galactica and why your support is crucial to getting Season 2 made!
Transolar Galactica is a sci-fi comedy webseries that follows the exploits of Captain Remmington Trigger and his crew of space misfits as they travel the galaxy in search of adventure. (Check out the entire first season here: www.TransolarGalactica.com)
Independently produced in Spokane, WA, the entire first season of the show (spanning 10 episodes) was shot almost entirely on green screen and created with an overall budget of less than $200 - but it went on to gain national recognition and grow a large web audience.
TRANSOLAR ON TOUR
The show and it's crew has also visited and/or had screenings at the following conventions and events:
Now we are looking to produce the second season of the show, and we really want to take it to the next level:
- The Season 2 script is feature length, and will be shot to be released in separate episodes OR to be watched as one continuous feature length film!
- Less Green Screen, more real locations!
- Awesome Sound Effects and a professional Musical Score!
- Better Props, Costumes, and Real Sets!
- Larger cast and more hilarious characters!
- More awesome Visual Effects and improved CG graphics!
- Better production value! We are in desperate need of additional equipment and upgrades to really make Transolar Galactica be all that it can be.
Our goal is to raise a minimum of $30,000 on Kickstarter in order to cover all of the production and post production costs for Season 2 of Transolar Galactica. Every dollar raised during this campaign will go towards producing the show; no producer salaries, no celebration dinners, no "Team Building" Crew trips to Las Vegas... We believe in this show, and the story we've written for Season 2, and we want to see it come to life.
By backing our project, you'll help us create a funny and original show that everyone involved can be proud of. And in return, we're offering some really cool rewards - Check them out! --------------------------------------------------->
And remember - WE DON'T RECEIVE ANY FUNDS UNLESS WE REACH OUR GOAL OF $30,000!
Here's a closer look at some of the rewards we're offering to people who back our project:
The full figurine set will include: Trigger, Yasaki, Samson, Reggie, McCall, Nurse, Arrarus, Regina, and Zoch!
Now, $30,000 might seem like a lot of space credits, but for an indie feature film budget, it's incredibly low. And $30k is the ABSOLUTE MINIMUM we would need to make another season of Transolar at the same level of quality as the first season.
Film equipment, editing gear, studio space, permits and fees, food for our hardworking (and hopefully larger) crew... it all adds up. So we're hoping to surpass our minimum and try and raise as much money as possible. Every dollar raised beyond our goal is one more dollar towards producing an awesome show. Plus the with more money we raise, the more we'll be able to achieve during our production (better equipment, better props, more shooting days, etc.) - and we're going to make your amazing contributions show on the screen. We want to make your jaw drop and your eyes pop out of your head like a severe atmospheric pressure reduction!
But surpassing our goal isn't without more rewards for our fans and backers! Below are our "Stretch Goals", dollar increments we're hoping to hit beyond $30,000. For each goal met, it will "unlock" certain bonuses for our backers, and it will allow us to offer other great rewards during our campaign.
One of the main rewards that will be unlocked with each goal will be supplemental Transolar "Origin Episodes", in which the the stories of how your favorite characters came aboard the S.S. Transolar will be told! What other cool stuff will we offer? Help us spread the word about our Kickstarter and get more backers and you'll find out!
And of course... THANK YOU! The cast and crew of Transolar Galactica would have never made it this far if it weren't for our incredibly loyal fans. You keep us going, and we want to give you more awesome adventures with Captain Trigger and his crew. So please back our project, tell your friends and family, and share the show. Let's make this grand voyage across the stars together!
