REWARDS UPDATE AND SURVEY DEADLINE
1) Please, if you haven't already, respond to the reward surveys by tomorrow - Wednesday January 15th.
In addition, please check the previous post for the spelling and inclusion or exclusion of your name in the credits. I will be locking these after tomorrow and what is there is what will be in the film, in any press, and on IMDB.
2) If you are an international backer who pledged for physical rewards, I will be contacting you in the coming days and weeks to talk about options regarding shipping your rewards. I launched my campaign when Kickstarter had very limited support for international backers, so I mistakingly thought that I would only have to ship in the US and maybe Canada. Unfortunately, the cost of shipping to some of these countries is 2 or 3 times the value of the rewards themselves. So let's figure that out.
3) I'm working hard on creating all these rewards and finding manufacturers to produce the rewards. I just finished remodeling the Scavenger Arken and sent it off to Shapeways for a test print. The model was built ( by Dan Fine ) with so much awesome detail and it was quite a job to make it work as a 5-6cm physical object that has to work with gravity and what not. I only had to remove a few of the most fragile details and was able to preserve the overall feel and silhouette of the ship.
I should have the poster designs all together by the end of the week. I have some very supportive and talented friends putting together additional poster designs that should make for a cool mix!
Then I will start on laying out the art book.
Lots of fun stuff! I'm really excited about sharing all of this with you guys as well as the film itself in the coming weeks and months.
