Stretch Goals Announced!
Thank you all for an incredible four first days! We're thrilled to be funded this quickly and appreciate the faith that you have in us as storytellers.
Now we get to move on to stretch goals... and we have some awesome stuff planned!
Each stretch goal includes an upgrade to the World Bible ($50 PDF and $100 physical) and an upgrade to our production in Mongolia. This lets us balance cool limited-edition rewards with ways to make our lives easier on set and increase the scope of what's possible for the shoot.
For the world bible, if we achieve all stretch goals it will become a 96-page leather-bound art book with premium 100# silk paper that you can use both as a resource for your own Strowlers films or stories AND as a sourcebook for tabletop roleplaying in this world. (We bring the world, you bring the rules.) We've priced out everything with the printer and can turn this into unique Strowlers collectible.
For our production goals, this will let us make a couple more key hires in Mongolia, bring along a better camera, and take advantage of two-day layovers in Korea and Japan to see what we can shoot with Samara and local connections, plus get an editor started much earlier on organizing all of the documentary footage.
Compared to most of our other shows this is still a tiny budget, but after testing the process in Ireland, these upgrades feel like they will make the largest difference, letting us focus more on storytelling.
