The $15,000 (75%) milestone is a huge one. Hitting it as early as possible means we’ll spend more time on the Nearly Funded page on Kickstarter and put us in a much better position to hit or exceed the funding goal.
In addition to all the other giveaways and bonuses (detailed on the Kickstarter Project page), Jason and Kurt will review up to twenty-three nerd movies in comic strip form—IF we hit these milestone goals…
There’s also information about a new reward that includes a custom vector illustration by yours truly (a.k.a. Gordon)! So if you’d like the character of your choice drawn sort of like one of the illustrations below, head over to the Kickstarter project page today!
Don’t wait! Pledging early encourages others to pledge, too, and the increased discoverability of being on the Nearly Funded page will help the project even more — so every dollar you pledge could get magnified greatly.
Happy Fourth of July, stay safe, don’t eat too much, and I’ll talk to you soon! — Gordon
I’m giving away one cameo appearance in an upcoming Multiplex 10 web series episodes for every 100 backers we get, if the project is successfully funded! (These will most likely be customer appearing the background of the lobby or an auditorium.)
Additional cameos will be unlocked for every 100 backers we get, and as a thank you to earlier backers, they will get multiple chances to win —but every backer will have at least ONE chance.
The Multiplex 10: The Web Series Kickstarter prize pack giveaway that I announced Monday morning succeeded beyond my wildest hopes!
I planned to do a different giveaway next, but because I thought I’d have more time to prep stuff, I’m not ready to do that one yet—so I’m just gonna do the first one… again, meaning everyone who has backed to date has TWO chances of winning.
But… three more lucky backers who help us pass reach the $14,000 milestone (a.k.a. 75%) will win the same prize pack, which includes:
Signed and sketched copies of all three Multiplex print collections to date
A Multiplex 10: The Animated Short USB card
The Multiplex mini-poster set
A 6″x8″ brush and ink sketch of the person or character of your choice
plus some other dumb stuff like a bookmark and some postcards that you can use… as bookmarks!
SO YEAH! Pledge today and pledge AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. The more you pledge, the higher your chances of winning are, because it gets us closer to that 75% funding milestone. The 75% funding point is a huge one, because puts us in the “Nearly Funded” page of the Kickstarter search, increasing our discoverability on the site.
One of my favorite indie filmmakers, one Rian Johnson, had some very kind words about our little web series (which you can read for yourself above). You might have seen one or two of the movies he’s written and directed, like Brick, Looper, or maybe Star Wars: The Last Jedi?
Gonna die happy now…
In addition to this amazing news, the Multiplex 10 animated short was selected to screen at the upcoming Monmouth Film Festival (it’s in the Web Series category) and “Self-Help” will be screening in this year’s Small Wonders: An Exhibition of Tiny Art & Film, as well. We’re not just enormously proud of the work we’ve been doing, but I really believe we’re poised to Get Big (relatively speaking) if we can just keep up the momentum.
