Last saturday at dawn (10.30am) completely hangover, I walked more then an hour in the sun to pick up the screen prints.
And man was it worth it! They are brilliant. It’s my first screen print and I love it, I love it so much I might screen print some backgrounds from the film.
I will start sending them on monday to a few lucky backers.
I printed with Atom Printing, I highly recommend them, great work, fast and affordable.
Here’s the print:
If you wanna get one, they’re £20, just chuck me an email.
And here’s how screen prints are made, it’s pretty rad!
And a video that shows the screen printing process, nothing to do whit atom printing or the film, it’s just a youtube video :)
I’ve got around 150 packets to prepare for the Kistarter, so I’m starting early. (And this as nothing to do with the fact that I don’t feel like shooting more live action today, NOTHING)
The lucky 15 first fellas that pledged for the book and that sent me their address will receive their book very soon.
I’m sure the post man is gonna LOOOVE me.
And to celebrate this I made a GIF, obviously. (Might take a while to load)
Well the Kickstarter had an amazing start! We reached the initial goal in only 24 hours!
The initial goal was to cover the cost of finishing the film animation and the off costs, like festival inscription.
The new goal now includes the compositing of the film (putting all the animation layers together) and the sound recording!
I hope we can make it! So keep sharing the love!
Also I feel like the T-shirts don’t get as much attention as they deserve, It’s probably because I didn’t talk about them in the video, so here we go:
I’m planing to print the T-shirt with the AMAZING Dude Factory, this means that the printing quality will be beautiful.
They print on American apparel cuts, Male and Female! You can also choose a variety of colors. Check it out, HERE, And it’s only £25!
visit Animating DeadMan’s Reach now! And enjoy awesome rewards and stories about the film!
“Animating Deadman’s Reach” KickStarter is ready to go live!
I will be launching it THIS THURSDAY, valentine’s day.
And it will include Awesome Rewards!
Don’t miss it, Thuersday, for 30 days only! I will be trying to raise 7000£.
The preparation was bloody intense, but at least you”ll be able to enjoy making fun of me in the KickStarter video!
I’m seriously considering putting DeadMan’s Reach on KickStarter.
The main reason being that I’m starting week 23 of a production that was suppose to be 24 weeks. And I can’t see how I can finish 7 mins of animation in 1 week… So I need to extend the production quite dramatically…
So what’s this Kick-Starter thing?? Well kick-starter is a founding platform for creative projects.
Basically you pre-sell stuffs before making a project, and you use the money you got from the sell to actually create the project. i.e. For an album, you pre-sell your album, then make the album, then send the album to the people how pre-bought it.
It’s a one month process where you need as much word of mouth as possible to reach the amount you need to do (finish) the project. It’s a all or nothing. If the amount is not reached you pay nothing and the project get nothing!
It’s kind of what I started doing with the sell of the DeadMan’s Reach sketch book, but on a completely different scale. (I would have done a Kick-Starter straight from the start but It wasn’t available in the UK at the time).
For all of you who bought the book already there will be special, cheaper stuff!
Here are the products (Rewards) I would be selling:
The book, obviously:
Original Animation Drawings, like this one:
Original BackGrounds, like that one:
And some more surprises!
