Hey guys! Thanks for checking in. Sorry for the silence. Things are still moving! Updates coming soon!
It's been awhile. How is it going? I'm feeling a bit lonely.
Any updates as to when we can expect the episodes to be released... I am also really looking forward to the 90+ min movie download.
More infoz, and animation video, coming this week! :)
Needs more infoz. :)
Great, thanks :)
Updated MB-209 looks super!
Hey Frank- Just responded to your forum post (missed that, sorry) and keep an eye out tomorrow for an update.
Wondering about the progress of the project... Last update on the R&D site is of Jan 5th and last response on the devforum Jan 7th with posts still unanswered. :/
Meant to say sooner -- got the T-shirt & "somebody" is going to enjoy the "wrapping" on a Christmas present. :-)
Showed the t-shirt and poster to friends this week and they got excited about the project!
Just got my 8x10 and T-shirt. Both are very nice. Can't wait to see the first episode!
Thanks Carolyn- Glad you received and appreciate the feedback!
Just got my 8X10 on Saturday! Just a small bit of criticism, the print seems a tad bit too dark and I think it would have benefited from a lighter or white border to make the actual image stick out a bit more. Other than that though it's nice and I'll probably frame it. Thanks again and good luck on Dome!
@Mark - Anything is possible!
Just a question any chance there might be a 3d bluray release if done takes off!
Great, thanks! :)
We will have an update on many things, including the R+D site, next week. We are working on all fronts and have some very exciting updates/news to share with you all very soon!
Any news on when the R&D site will be up?

@Sonia do it! there's still a possibility that pledges can fail when it runs the charges.
Wow, indeed! All I did was go to the grocery store for an hour or so & Bam! The last 4k came in.
I'm still mulling over upping my pledge for a different reward, too.
Wow...just wow. Mind=blown -Brandon
Yay! With 24 hours to go, you guys reached the mark! CONGRATS!
@Ruy Flavio WOW - thank you!!! We wish you all could see our smiles :) This support you guys are giving us is truly amazing!
I was wondering if some guys who were "there" when digital animations came along—people like John Lasseter, Peter Docter, Andrew Stanton, Brad Bird, etc.—wouldn't be interested (and, hopefully, willing) to help out with funding "Dome". So, I sent one of them this message by e-mail:
"Dear Mr. [PIXAR DIRECTOR/PRODUCER],
First of all, sorry for the intrusion.
I write because I believe you could—and, indeed would like to—help a digital movie get out of the drawing board and into the screen. This movie is "Dome", from Mighty Tree House Productions, a project that the community is trying to viabilize in Kickstarter. Here is the link: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mightytreehouse/dome
Should you be able and wish to contribute, we are in the final hours for doing so, and in need of very little to make "Dome" happen.
Thanks for your time and attention (and for the scores of great movies you guys at Pixar have been creating in the past two decades). Have a great weekend.
PS: I would be very grateful if you could forward this request to your colleagues at Pixar."
GO DOME GO! Less than 4k to the finish line!
@bakedpotato thank you! We are almost there!!
Just a little more till our goal!
I've followed this for a bit and decided i really wanna see it get made. here good sirs take my money

Going the right way. :)

Wow - A little but more - will resend to my followers

@thechosenone thank you! And yes you are correct, we need to go OVER to cover any potential failed pledges. We have 2 days left and need to keep it rolling but you guys are amazing and we now we can do this!
Doubled my pledge. 10k to go.
