Yippee ki-yay!!!

How are you guys??? Chillin' during the Holidays??
Here's some info from the Slice of Life headquarters. As we said, sound and music mix on Slice of Life is almost finished. The big news for us is that very soon we'll head to Berlin, Germany to do a professional 'Color grading'. That's gonna give our movie that little extra something to make it just the way we envisioned it.

So now we finally had some extra time to focus on perks and, dare we say it... it's gonna be awesome! One of our biggest challenges (besides making the movie, of course) was creating a commendable hard-cover art book, and we are happy that so far, it's going great. All of the texts have been written and we are currently in the process of designing the layouts and editing it. So, those of you who opted for that perk are gonna get over 100 pages of detailed technique descriptions, in-depth personal stories and an excessive overview of the whole production, with all of the ups and downs we encountered during the last 4 years and tons of photos you can feast your eyes on.

That's a 100 PAGES! Of the text that makes sense! Boy, that was hard!

The next big thing is an official soundtrack, and as many of you opted for some of the perks that include it, we wanted to give you your money's worth. Even tough Slice of Life will be 25 minutes long, the OST will have an extra 20 minutes of music, with all of the cut-out and alternative pieces. So, 45 minutes of those sweet, sweet dystopian sounds to get you in the right mood.

Oh, and let's not forget the "Making of" documentary, which we also started filming and editing. It's hard do condense the whole process of making this movie in a single documentary, but when it's done, it's hopefully gonna be a great insight to lives of a couple of guys with a big dream and one garage and a true testament to all of you who supported us and made this project possible.

That being said, and as it's holiday season after all, we want to share a little bit of trivia with you: Slice of Life is set around New Year! It's not connected to the plot in any way, it's just a secret 'easter egg'. But in the future during Holidays, and after all of the Wonderful Lifes, Home Alones and Die Hards (yes, Die Hard IS the BEST Christmas movie ever!), we hope you'll pop-out our movie, relax and really enjoy your Slice of Life.

We love you guys!

Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noël, Frohe Weinachte, Feliz Navidad, Buon Natale and have a greatest, most awesome and happy 2019!

      I know you guys are busy, but one thing that would be kinda nice right now is to have the Kickstarter backers' page up on your website so your fans can take credit now for being a part of this amazing project.

      @Andreas Bøttger @Ron Newcomb @Stephen Bell Thanks for your interest guys! We plan to setup a webshop with all the perks in the near future, so it will be possible to get the book as a hard-copy or digital pdf, as well as other stuff we'll offer..

      I had either forgotten, or had not realised, that there was going to be a book. Is that going to be available to buy separately?

      I am so looking forward to seeing "all" of you hard work come to fruition. Denis Leary's "The Ref" is up there with "Die Hard" as the greatest Christmas movie.

    14. Ron Newcomb on

      If we pledged another amount - get we add on any of these epic items now?
