Greetings Insane Children,
Hard to believe it's been a full year since the "Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter" campaign was successfully funded. Yet here we are, 12 months into production on two animated short films and another year spent working to bring Alice to the big screen. A lot of progress has been made and a lot more work still remains, but I am thankful that we've made it this far and very excited for what the future has in store for our film versions of Alice.
As for an update, progress with the animated shorts remains steady. Nothing significant to report since the last Kickstarter update. As soon as I receive more footage from the teams I'll post samples here.
On the film front, I have several significant meetings and challenges to tackle in the next two weeks. The outcome of those events will determine the path going forward for feature film development and I will share not only the results, but part of the decision-making process with you... all before the end of August.
A note to anyone still waiting on posters: Please send messages to me directly via Kickstarter. Not via email (unless you already have my personal email) and not via the comments section. As I am managing campaign logistics on my own now, it makes my life much easier if you communicate through Kickstarter messages. Also note that in most instances where prints are "missing" they are being held at local post offices. Please check with your local post office if you're still waiting on missing prints.
If you are waiting on the DVDs, Art Book, or anything other than the printed posters, please understand that these items will not be ready for production until the animated shorts are finished. We'll then produce and send them. There's no need to write asking about these today. We expect animated short production to finish around end of 2014.
If you have a change of address, please use BackerKit to submit that info. www.backerkit.com
Keep your fingers crossed for the upcoming meetings. Good stuff is in the works!
