Both and more. Since the "Otherlands" shorts are going to be computer animated, we'll be able to output to a range of formats. We're still working on distribution methods, but rest assured, our goal is to make access to this content easy - and to provide all the major formats. If we end up with a special request or two (within reason) for output type, then we'll handle that on an as-need basis.
We need 100k to secure a 12 month license to and exploit the animation rights. If we raise 200k, then 100k goes towards the first step of securing the rights in full. We'll spend what's left over on creating animations. Depending on how much more we raise, we purchase/unlock additional elements in the rights (and more time) - and we'll make more animations. In order to purchase outright, for all time, the film rights - we need 500k. I don't expect all of that to come from Kickstarter though. Also, keep in mind that Spicy Horse doesn't take a profit from any of this. Money comes in, part goes out to pay for the rights, other part goes out to fund animation production (with an external team). In this since, we're being pure producers, but not taking a fee of any sort.
Yes! Please, stop worrying about this! We've stated many times our position on DRM. There will be no DRM! That being said, there WILL be a one-time registration on the website where you download the video(s) for the first time. Just a normal registration, nothing icky or evil. Once you've registered, you'll have access to the download files. Since those files will be DRM-free, you'll then be able to copy them to your friends, burn them on DVDs, sell them and torrent them like crazy - but you wouldn't do that, would you?
Ok, you’ve convinced us you want Blu-ray. But rather than muddy the process with three more tiers we’re just going to leave things as they are and at the end of the Kickstarter the survey will ask whether you want a standard DVD or a Blu-ray
We can easily distribute text subtitle files (in .SRT format for example) along with the digital video files. We'll also embed English subtitles with the DVD. As for other languages, it's difficult to commit at this point, but we'll keep open the option and make a decision based on how large the campaign gets.
