March 2018 Update!

Hey folks!

Thought I'd share a screen shot that shows half of our material being organized for a trailer. I've been snaking back and forth between reworking the 6 episodes and creating the trailer, but it's been no easy feat since the episodes have their own identity and the trailer needs to be reflective of everything, and of course, sales-driven.

Right now, the trailer has been the main focus because of some upcoming film markets (where movies and shows are bought and sold). A number of distributors and broadcasters have expressed interest in the series since it blends both art and pop culture together. This gives us a lot more options to consider when moving forward. Ideally, the team will sign with a partner that wants to further fiance additional episodes since we still have a number of willing participants.

It's the tug of war but we're still on track to deliver by the end of the year!

Also, over on our FB page where smaller updates and related info gets posted, we hit 1000 Likes! Pretty cool milestone to reach before the project has even finished. Also there's an article from Kotaku that features Dan and his collection of art that we filmed. Dan is also a producer on our series: https://kotaku.com/collector-offers-to-pay-100-000-for-original-contra-bo-1822674117

I'll try and share more often, so further apologies about the silence. Here's something cool to consider: let me know what you would like to see or hear about for future updates. I'll be more than happy to discuss, show or share anything I can.

Cheers!

Rob and the Box Art Team!

      @Jeremy: ya it’s very fascinating. I was going back through Dan’s interview and collection tour yesterday and it was hard to pull the best bits because it’s so easy to sit there, look at his pieces, and listen to the stories. We will definitely have some of this to share in the end product and bonus features.

      Awesome- I dig the collectors side of the story in reference to "Original Art" since it's a niche but an intriguing one.
