Come meet me at Wizard World Philadelphia (June 2–4 only)

Hello! If you’re in the area, come meet me at Wizard World Philadelphia with Phil Kahn of Guilded Age. We’ll be at Booth 1702. NOTE: I will only be there from June 2–4. No Thursday preview for me. (Here’s a floor plan for your planning pleasure.)

Learn more at the official Wizard World Philadelphia site! If you use the coupon code GUILDED, you can get 20% off your advanced ticket orders.

I will have copies of the brand-spankin’-new, not-even-officially-released Multiplex: The Revenge (Book Three) in tow, draw sketches (for monies), and if my iPad has any juice in it, I’ll show you some behind the scenes stuff from the Multiplex 10 short, too.

Going into the final day… (and some Producer-level rewards rejiggering)

As we get closer to the FINAL twenty-four hours of the Multiplex 10 Kickstarter project, I’m thrilled with how much we’ve raised — but I’d like to make one attempt at sweetening the producer-level ($900+) reward levels in hopes that someone will swoop in for one of those at the last minute.

I’ve nixed the early bird discounts and added a few extras:

THE ASSOCIATE PRODUCER ($900) — Get a credit as an Associate Producer in the finished short (instead of the Special Thanks) and a special Multiplex 10 crew T-shirt — PLUS all the lower level rewards!

THE CO-EXECUTIVE PRODUCER ($1200) — Get a credit as a Co-Executive Producer in the finished short (instead of the Special Thanks) and a full-sized (27″x40″-ish) printed Multiplex 10 poster — PLUS all the lower level rewards!

THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCER ($2000) — Get a credit as an Executive Producer in the finished short (instead of the Special Thanks), your production company logo after the credits (I’ll design and animate one for you if you don’t have one already), and dinner with the director (in Somerville, MA; transportation not provided) — PLUS all the lower level rewards!

The Multiplex 10 crew shirts will be the Multiplex 10 Cinemas logo on the front in black, with your credit on the back:

Multiplex 10: the animated short is FUNDED!!!

Thanks to Phat Do and 477 other backers and also the one person who just pledged since I started typing this — the Multiplex 10 animated pilot is FUNDED!

I think I can safely speak for the cast & crew and say that we are incredibly thrilled to have this opportunity to bring Kurt and Jason and the rest of the Multiplex 10 gang to life. Thank you so much for all your support.

What’s even better is that we still have four days to go! As I’ve said before, the more money we raise, the better the short can be.

We do have one official stretch goal. At $20,000, we’ll be able to add…

  • Smoother, 4K animation (involving a couple of additional animators)
  • 5.1 Surround Sound mix
  • A theatrical premiere at the Somerville Theatre here in Somerville, MA. (All backers at the Special Thanks level and up will have free admission, though you will need to RSVP. Transportation is not provided.)

And, of course, the more money we raise, the more money we have to promote and distribution the finished short — which will help increase our chances of producing MORE Multiplex 10.

Thank you, again. This is going to be fun.

We’re 90% funded!!!

We’ve just passed 90% funding with SEVEN days to go, by Kickstarter’s clock, and so here is a comic to celebrate!

Just $1,500 to go before we can officially greenlight the pilot. But the more we raise, the better we can make the short and the more effectively we can distribute it, both of which improve our chances of getting a full series made down the road.

So please, continue to share the project with your friends and friends as we head into the last week of the funding period.

Thank you for your support!
