For this film, we were fortunate enough not to have to use a Kickstarter to raise funding. However, your support is still absolutely critical to make the film a success. We were able to make the film because people thought that it would have an audience, and if you support the film by pre-ordering, it’s going to send a great signal that audiences want more films like these; in-depth explorations of the world of comic books and fantasy. We feel incredibly lucky to be able to make these films, and tell these stories, and it’s your support that helps us keep doing it.
This is a special film, one filmed over the past three years, featuring unprecedented access to Neil. Here’s a synopsis:
Dream Dangerously offers viewers a fly-on-the-wall look at Neil on the road, interacting with fans, and experiencing the struggles and joys of being an acclaimed public speaker and in-demand personality. At the same time, the film delves deeply into Neil’s writing process, exploring the childhood origins of his love of mythology, up to his struggles to keep his writing fresh after 25 years of successful storytelling.
The film includes unique interviews with Amanda Palmer, George R.R. Martin, Grant Morrison, Bill Hader, Michael Sheen, Kirsten Vangsness, Lenny Henry, Will Wheaton and many more key figures in Neil’s creative and personal life. Ultimately this is a portrait of one of our most beloved fantasy writers that shows the way that fantasy can be a mirror for the world around us, and for the writer himself.
We can’t wait for you to see the film, and thanks again for your support over the years!
