HELLO EVERYONE! WELCOME TO JURASSIC FARCE!
OUR FIRST-EVER UPDATE!
First of all, thank you so much for taking at look at and/or contributing to our Kickstarter campaign! We're going to keep this short and sweet, but there are a few updates below that will be of interest to you. We had a great first week with nearly 60 backers so far and 15% of funding completed. We've got a long way to go though, and only so long to do it so we have lots of tricks up our sleeves and some exciting developments to come. Take a look!
A quick reminder: If you pledged at a level that includes a ticket or tickets, be sure you've completed our very quick survey to let us know where to expect you! This will help us gauge what venues to secure as well.
MURDER HOUSE FEATURED IN WIRED
Along with being chosen as a KS "Staff Pick" in the theater section, we've already gotten a little coverage of the tour on sites like Movies.com. Now that SXSW is finished clogging the airwaves, we're expecting much more! Along with all of our networking during SXSW, one thing that will certainly be getting that ball rolling is a small spread in this month's WIRED magazine!
Found on Page 54, WIRED has run a quick profile of Murder House in the April issue and it includes a mention of this summer's exciting tour! If you have a subscription, make sure you give the article a look (and pass it around to your friends too) otherwise it should be available online soon. We'll definitely be sending everyone a link!
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO SPREAD THE WORD!
We've had a lot of great help pushing this project out to people so far, and we definitely need you guys to keep that up. If you want to see these shows happen please do your best to show this project to other folks you think would be interested. Share it on Facebook, Tweet about it, toss is onto your Tumblr, shout from your rooftops, or start sending your best carrier pigeons out with the link… it all helps!
Thanks everyone! We'll update you again soon when we have some art to share and more updates on the buzz-spreading efforts...
