Update on Sean

Once again, apologies for keeping you in the dark for so long. I have been working away behind the scenes trying to get the project back on track since the Justin Kurzel/Michael Fassbender Macbeth torpedoed us below deck!!!

The good news is that Sean is back on board and looking forward to playing Macbeth. I believe now some time has passed audience and critics will be prepared to look at the material with fresh eyes.

I was hoping to announce our Lady Macbeth but alas that is no longer the case and the search still continues.

I have at last tracked down the T shirts and along with the posters I hope to have them all delivered in time for Christmas.

I will also be meeting new investors soon and will have a better idea as to when we will eventually go into production.  

I will make every effort to keep you all informed of my progress and I know how frustrating it has been for you all not having updates. I apologise for this unreservedly.

Unlike other Kickstarter projects this a behemoth and succeptible to all the vagaries of the film industry. It is a marathon and not a sprint.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

GETTING FUNDED

We have been having technical difficulties with the sound mix for the digital download/DVD but these issues are being currently fixed and we hope to have  them sent to you along with all the other pre production rewards in due course.

We have had an offer for full finance for the feature which is great news but unfortunately we have missed our spring window for Sean Bean as he has  work commitments in the USA until autumn. We aim to commence production as soon as he becomes available.

We will release information of our funding source following a press release and of course we will keep you all informed.

Thank you for your patience during this phase of the film making process; it is often a frustrating time.

NEW LOOK ENEMY OF MAN WEBSITE

Dear Kickstarter backers

We've had a very busy couple of months, more recces and more work on the development of the Enemy of Man feature. We've refreshed the Enemy website and added a little more content, including some storyboard art.

http://www.enemyofmanmovie.com

We are also just about complete on the Instruments of Darkness short film and will be sending out usernames and passwords to login and download the film.

We would also like to take this opportunity to put out a 'LAST CALL' for surveys. For those of you that have had and have not yet returned, the deadline to do so is Friday December 5th.

As we come ever closer to going in to production of the main feature, keep your eyes peeled for more frequent updates. We're developing video diaries during the production process, which will be posted to the Enemy of Man website.

Thanks again for your patience and support. Exciting times ahead!

Warmest regards
Vincent and the Enemy of Man team
