Attention Insane Children!
First up, Alice (Susie):
“I love the idea of continuing the Alice story with Otherlands; . . . It’s so exciting that you're planning a 3D movie version - that's having vision!. . .All the best with this and future expeditions. I love your idea of "finding more nightmarish creatures and kicking their butts back to hell!!" Go Spicy Horse!”
(I hope you read that in Alice's voice, I know I did).
Next up, The Cheshire Cat (Roger): “. . .love to do another project with Spicy Horse. Alice: Otherlands is a great idea. . .”
(You could have read that in the voice of The Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, Dormouse, March Hare, White Rabbit, and a half-dozen other Alice characters, as Roger voiced them all!)
I'm really excited to have both Roger and Susie on board. They brought so much passion and creativity to the previous Alice projects. Having them contribute to the Otherlands animations would be fantastic.
These two excellent voice talents won't come cheap. To add them to the animations means we also need to add a stretch goal to the campaign. That's going in at $250k. I'll admit it, hitting this target with just 6 days remaining seems like a daunting task, but we can make it work. I'm doing TONS of interviews every day, we're all tweeting, blogging, Facebook'ing and more. Let's keep it up! The effort is paying off.
Also, an update on movement with the larger film project. I'll be traveling to Beijing (again) to meet with film production and finance people. Interest in the larger film project is growing in China, Hong Kong and the US. Writers, directors, producers and finance people are all jumping on board to make this happen. Of course we can't make a film if we don't secure the rights. Let's get this thing done so Alice can make her way to the big screen!
Today's art update comes once again from Nako. This time he's used a collection of textile patterns from the legendary William Morris to create an exploration of that designer, artist, writer's mind. This new image will also be offered for sale at $65 + $10 for international shipping. I think we'll call this one "A Liberally Textured Mind" ;)
