      Hi Everyone - sorry for the lack of responses here, we have been deling with emails, facebook and website contacts etc but have completely neglected the comments section on the page - massive apologies :(

      All rewards have now been shipped internationally - including the Blu-Rays of the films. Anyone who filled in the backer questionnaire we sent out asking for your reward selections and address etc should now have received the digital AND physical copies they selected.

      If you have not received a reward you were expecting, or you never filled out the backer questionnaire last year PLEASE get in touch with me personally (trust me - it is the best way to get your problem sorted ASAP)

      emails direct to me: dave at realm-pictures dot com

      Thanks for your patience - it's been a long journey to getting all this sorted.

      After various sent emails (through kickstarter, replying to update emails and through the film's website) I have to date not received any answer or update of any form.

      Since I am not the only backer in this situation, is there anything we can do?

      Ocean Fan Pack? Any news? Didn't receive survey yet.

      Creator Lauwie0 on May 19, 2013

      I also have not received any update on the "Ocean Fan Pack" backer package since the official "release" email sent on the 3rd of January. In that email there was stated that a survey would be sent out within 48 hours on the blu-ray and dvd, but I have never received such an email.

      Creator Anthony Bundy on December 29, 2012

      watched the films on Youtube, and loved them. My favorite is actually the last.
      I sincerely hope at least one gets turned into a full production movie. Put me down for a ticket for opening night if so.
      Hopefully all.

      And any word on how much longer on the indie action pack? Really looking forward to the tutorials as I feel they could add a lot to my films and have actually delayed filming while I wait on the dvd to arrive.

      Creator Dimitrios on March 25, 2012

      Thanks for getting in there and pulling together the LED plans for us Mark. I'm glad to see that I was wrong and that you guys are an up and up organization. Looking forward to it as well as the development of finding a vendor for the dimmer situation. Maybe you can give the online community some help so that maybe we can solve the problem for you. I like the forum idea and have seen this really take hold in some other arenas.

      Thanks again


    30. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Lucas Pfaff on March 23, 2012

      Great to hear that. I'm really excited about the LEDs and the Action Pack. I'm SO excited about this :)

    31. Dave2%20(1).small

      Creator Realm Pictures on March 23, 2012

      Stuart, that's a really good idea. It would be a great way for users to connect with each other - and more importantly a place where we can all see these lights grow and develop!

      Lucas - it's coming! We are working to get the LED plans out over this weekend, then it's all steam ahead on compiling the action pack (and Zomblies) for delivery.

      Hi Mark,

      what about the Indie Action Movie Pack? :) I want to blow stuff up :)

    33. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Stuart Baker on March 21, 2012

      Hi Mark,

      Thank you for the update. May I suggest that when you release the plans that you setup an online forum so that those with the plans can provide support to each other, as well as ask questions of your engineering team? A streamlined communication will likely save many time and money insofar as their investment when building LED lights, as well as provide a venue for you to outline the patch updates as they become available.

      Thanks again for the update. I hope that all is well with the Underwater Realm production; looking forward to continued updates, and a chance to see your film at the earliest of opportunities!

    34. Dave2%20(1).small

      Creator Realm Pictures on March 19, 2012

      Hi All

      We have been receiving a lot of messages regarding the LED Plans and so we thought it sensible to give you an update.

      For those who don't know, we have been experiencing problems with our suppliers meaning we are no longer comfortable recommending them to our backers. Unfortunately this change in suppliers has meant a redesign for the dimmer circuit which means its not as simple as releasing the plans just without the recommendations.

      However, it is not OK that the plans have been delayed this long and so we have come to a solution. We will be releasing a primary version of the plans in the form of a video and a PDF document with the diagrams and construction materials you will need. These plans will be incomplete since they will not contain the dimmer but as soon as it is possible for us to release patches we will update you all with this addition.

      We were hesitant to release incomplete plans since we wanted to release something bullet proof. This way, you will be able to construct a fully working set of LED lights that work from battery power but like kenos you won't be able to dim them. Not the most elegant of solutions but this delay doesn't feel right when everyone has been so generous to us.

      We thank you for your understanding

      It sounds like the Underwater Realm is turning into the Underwater Excuse Farm. I have witnessed this kind of problem before where the we keep our part of the deal and as soon as the film makers get their money they forget about you. Sad and sleazy. I thought that this bunch would be different.

      Creator Austin Burke on March 17, 2012

      @Paul Robinson I got this message from Dave explaining the current situation with the Indie Action Pack

      "The Indie action pack has been slightly delayed due to the fact that our shooting schedule for The Underwater Realm has been brought forward. Since we're working on favours (even with the kick starter campaign this is still a very low budget endeavour) we have to fit around studios and suppliers schedules which is highly frustrating. However we are trying to et the packs out asap. Thank you for your support and patience

      Mark Ruddick"

      Thanks for the update Dave. Just keep us updated please. A LED lighting building plan without supplier address (of the most important parts the LED strips I suppose ) is of course useless.

      Creator Paul Robinson on March 16, 2012

      Dave is there an update on the "Indie Action Movie Pack" reward? it too was marked for Feb 2012...

    39. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Dimitrios on March 15, 2012

      Hello Dave,

      Thank you for your update. I am glad to have contributed to such a worthwhile project and wish it much success.

      I had signed up for the LED plans. Just as you have felt let down by your supplier I also feel let down by Realm Pictures in regards to receiving my LED plans package. I tried to contact your organization a number of times without getting any return of information. I think that you might want to consider doing something a little extra for those who ordered this package. This would go a long way to show your sincere gratitude for their generous contributions. Then again this is just my opinion.

      Also for future reference I would say that it is not acceptable to be silent in regards to your contributors because of your being "too busy". It makes me feel like I am being taken advantage of and that your production comes before your backers. We all know that unfortunate things happen in this business but we would rather know than not know.

      Creator Realm Pictures on March 15, 2012

      Oh no! We have been answering emails and tweets but completely missed this comments section - so sorry guys.

      The Lighting Masterclass has been delivered electronically. Anyone who has been expecting the masterclass and has not yet received it, please ensure you have filled out the form we sent out on Jan 6th over at:…

      As for the LED plans, we have been quite badly let down by a supplier, and we are not happy to work with them or to suggest them to all of our backers. We have thankfully now found a replacement and will be delivering the LED plans asap.

      Really very sorry for the delay - we just want to make sure that we give you plans for a set of lights that will work hard for you for a long time to come.

      Please feel free to get in touch with us directly at - silence is not deliberate, just an unfortunate by-product of being so (amazingly) busy thanks to all you guys.
