Last call to lend your support to the Multiplex 10 Indiegogo Second Chance campaign! The campaign ends at exactly MIDNIGHT Pacific Time tonight.
As of this writing, we’ve raised a little north of $3,600. One higher level backer could bump us up to get that second stretch goal and guarantee a 2–3 minute webisode featuring Jason and Kurt!
But whether or not we make it there, we are already getting the ball rolling for some shorter animated Multiplex 10 stuff. Any money we raise through the Indiegogo at this point will just mean we can submit the short film to more film festivals and create more animated content that will (indirectly and directly) promote the short film.
Don’t forget — there are TWO sketch giveaways to Indiegogo backers at ANY reward level! One by me, one by comics rockstar Gene Ha.
AND if you haven’t watched it already, there is a minute and a half preview of the short film! Rewards include producer credits in either the short or any funded webisodes, behind the scenes stuff from the animated short, and more!
Like Melissa and Kurt said in the comic, we’ve blown past the base goal for the Indiegogo Second Chance campaign, and we’ve passed the $3,000 stretch goal, as well—with a couple of days remaining in the funding period.
At this point, we’ve unlocked 4GB USB cards and a director’s commentary track for the short film, and we’re already getting the ball rolling for some all-new animated things. The exact format is up to the funding.
At the $4,000 stretch goal, we can definitely fund a 2–3 minute webisode. Less than that, and we’ll see what we can do… A minute? A handful of even shorter things? We’ll see! Whatever it is, it’ll be fun.
If you’re up for helping make that happen, head on over to the Indiegogo campaign page and pledge today! The campaign ends on FRIDAY NIGHT.
The Multiplex 10 Indiegogo Second Chance campaign ends on FRIDAY
and we’ve still got a little ways to go for the base goal. (UPDATE: We’ve just passed hte goal! Yay! Thank you! But don’t stop there; every penny we raise will help with the release, film festival submission fees, or promotional costs for the short!)
In order to help get us there, I’m giving away two—count ’em, TWO—sketches of the Multiplex 10 cast. To be eligible for BOTH of them, you just need to be an Indiegogo backer at ANY level—and, of course, not cancel your pledge. The winner will be selected at random after the campaign ends, successfully or not. (And yes, hypothetically, you could win both of them, however mathematically unlikely that may be.)
The first is by comics rockstar Gene Ha, artist of Top Ten with Alan Moore and currently the writer-artist behind Dark Horse’s Mae, and it features Melissa and Becky cosplaying as Leia and Rey.
The second is a drawing of Kurt and Jason by me, a.k.a. Gordon McAlpin:
tl;dr: Help support Multiplex 10’s film festival run and get a chance at winning a sketch by one of modern comics’ greatest artists or possibly one by some other guy! Pledge to support the Multiplex 10 Indiegogo Second Chance campaign today!
UPDATE! Congratulations to Michael Lowen for winning Gene’s sketch and to Calvin On for winning my sketch!
