Auroras update #5

Posted by Niles Heckman (Creator)

Hey backers,

Last year I started doing a little podcast called Novelty Generators. Many episodes focus on independent film making with creative collaborators, but it's also a way to reach out to other folks that generate original/novel content in any medium.

Because of the subject matter of our short film and this Kickstarter, I've connected up with a gentleman named Michal Laine. He's the president of a Seattle based company called Liftport Group which is in early R&D for developing an actual space elevator. He's also someone I'd definitely tap as a technical consultant on the larger Auroras feature storyline.

Michael also coincidentally did an extremely successful Kickstarter last year. Since he's been a great source of insight on the crowd source learning experience, I just had him on the latest episode of the podcast. I figure you might find it worth a listen:

If a space elevator discussion isn't so much your thing, at around the 1 hour 23 minute mark, we get into crowd sourcing and he shares some fantastic information for anyone who might be thinking of doing a campaign in the future.

Cheers, Niles
