MOONTRAP 2: The Story Continues (maybe)
For years we've suspected that there might be interest in continuing the story begun in our film MOONTRAP that starred Walter (STAR TREK) Koenig and Bruce (EVIL DEAD) Campbell.
So, we launched this Kickstarter project to find out.
But with less than one week to go ...
HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROBLEM!
Two donors (thanks, Bruce and Steve, truly) for a total of $50!
Hmmm ... Not exactly the results we had dreamed of.
So maybe the world is not waiting in anticipation of MOONTRAP 2.
Or maybe we weren't clear as to why we needed $13,800 for a MOONTRAP 2 app and not for a MOONTRAP 2 film.
So here goes ...
The purpose of the app is:
To act as a presentation device to show potential backers of the hoped-for film what it's going to be about. More effective than a script alone in that it not only tells the story but shows what the film will look like.
So, you might now ask:
Why don't you guys just go ahead and create the app yourselves?
One reason is simply: It would really cost $13,800 and we're Michigan (not Hollywood) filmmakers.
The most important reason, however, is ....
... an app totally financed by independent "fans" will pretty much prove that there is an audience for MOONTRAP 2, the movie.
So that's it. All your donations would indicate true interest in seeing the future film. (Remember, you'll also get the completed app.)
And if we don't reach our goal?
Well, we learned something. We can take it.
