      Thank you for all the kind words! We've been completely blown away by the show of support from all corners of the world. We're all in this together. 6 days to go and let's make this happen :)

      And as a visionary once said: "Here's to the crazy ones!"

      Saving Earth as it Once Was -

      Hey Guys, as a frustrated film maker that writes mostly comics for a living, i wish you all the best and hope the pledge helps. Its the kind of thing I would love to do...if only I knew three crazy film makers...lol.

      Looks awesome.

      What a comment from William Friedkin who directed The Exorcist and The French Connection: "This looks absolutely great... A great concept."
      That's real recognition from an expert!

      LoneShark! You strike me with awe daily... (Get it? Awestruck?) Just stumbled upon this area wherein comments can be left, and realized I'm woefully behind in leaving one. I stand with Jane McConnell's eloquent sentiments a fews days ago about nature, and such a key reason for backing Vivarium: so that you can communicate its critical message to the world, as she pointed out so well. (Not to mention the unlimited "investments of the heart" we two Jane's share, when it comes to everything LoneShark.... ) Well done, boys. We are eagerly awaiting the exquisite art we know is coming next.

      Hi Steve -

      Thank you for your backing!

      As for the budget breakdown it does seem amazing how much money goes into food, doesn't it?

      The truth is, the further into indie film territory you travel the higher that proportion becomes: other departments you may be able to trim or even do without, but food is a constant. 

      Beyond that, we always want to make sure the food isn't just junk food; an army marches on its stomach, and a film crew is no different. 

      So there you have it, the scoop on production food!

      Cheers -

      Patrick.

      Hi Guys,
      Very interesting to see your breakdown for where the money will go - a couple of things surprised me:
      1. Amazon take 5% - that's more than KS get! Didn't know that.
      2. 30% on Food? A whole 1/3 of your budget (after Amazon and KS have their cut). As much as Art and Post-Production put together.

      I'm not criticising this, because I genuinely have no experience of the costs involved in film production, but I'm really surprised that that's such a huge chunk of your costs.

      Before VIVARIUM there was SOYLENT GREEN's non-virtual nature... but I'm sure they'd have gone with virtual reality had it existed, don't you?

      I wonder which scene from VIVARIUM will become a classic?!
      To loosely quote Charlton: "I love you, bro'!"

      Agreed.

      I backed Vivarium because I want it to be made so that you can communicate to the world - in an entertaining way - the importance of how we treat the environment every day.

      The virtual world is of course a very compelling world, but it's worth, for good or for bad, lies entirely in our usage of it. Without that world network, we wouldn't be here seeking out like-minded backers to help this environmental film come to life.
      In the wrong hands, it can be a very divisive tool which pulls us apart rather than uniting us. As long as you get out and enjoy the natural world we have at our fingertips, our drive to preserve it will stay alive!

      The virtual,world is compelling, but is that what we really want?
      I'd like to know what Vivarium thinks.

      How can we accept that nature has become virtual?

      Yet much of what we do daily - our simple actions with disposing of waste, using energy, eating and enjoying what we call "life" - is inevitably moving us in a direction where nature will no longer be what what we know today.

      LThe virtual world is more compelling than web realize

      To see the effort that has gone into this project in attempt to gain the financial backing they need is truly amazing. One can only imagine what the finished movie will be like. Spread the word, let's make sure they take in more than enough. Check out the website for their production company. I love the use of classic posters to lead you to the different sections of the site. http://lonesharkstudios.com/
