Alternative media and crowd funding

  • I realize that the site doesn't have the throughput that it used to, but what the hell If you aren't interested yourself but think that some of your friends might be, please share this stuff on the Twitters and Facebooks, and stuff.

    There's a bunch of stuff either going on right now, on crowd funding sites, or that soon will be going live. I thought some of it might be interesting to folks around here.

    The one I'm most pulling for is "Natural 20" which is a sequel to last year's "Natural 1". It's being produced by a guy named Thomas Gofton in Guelph, Ontario, and if funded will also involve people from Seattle and Australia. I met Tom and Monica at a small con, last year, and had the better part of an hour talking production with Tom before the Canadian premier of "Natural 1". This one is being written by Andy Dopieralski of Two Bards Productions; a frequent colaborator with Zombie Orpheus Entertainment and Dead Gentlemen Productions.

    Here is the Kickstarter page:

    Here is a link to the previous series, "Natural 1":

    And, because I know what sells, here is a link to Monika Zelak's Facebook page :

    Zombie Orpheus Entertainment and Dead Gentlemen Productions will soon be releasing a rather ambitious schedule of projects they'll be trying to fund. One of them, "The Gamers: The Series", goes back to the story of one of their very early movies, to continue the story. They give a little information, on their Patreon page, about what to expect.

    ZOE's Kickstarter creator page:

    ZOE's Patreon page:

    Mythica is a movie series, that features our favourite former Hercules Kevin Sorbo in cameo appearances, as a sort of Dumbledor character. Quite frankly I really don't care if I spelt "Dumbledor" correctly The second in the series is currently seeking funding through Kickstarter and the first was pretty good.

    "Mythica: The Darkspore" Kickstarter page:

    Arrowstorm Entertainment's sales page:

    And just because I like these guys, Two Bards Productions Patreon page. Funny podcasts on most Sunday nights. They have modest aspirations, when it comes to funding

  • Man, but those Youtube links screw with the page formatting, don't they?

  • Well "Natural 20" has been deferred to late July or August, but Zombie Orpheus Entertainment has launched their "pilot season" Kickstarter campaign. They're funding 4 pilots and looking for which ones people want to actually see get made. I know that I definitely want to see "The Gamers: The Series" and "Demon Hunters: Red Tape" get made as ongoing projects, but I'll have to wait until I see "Brass" and "The Mirror Game" pilots before I'll know about them. Hell, I've got the theme from the Original Demon Hunters movie, from 1998, in my music rotation; "High Road" by Sean Bendickson and the Bendickson Boys.

  • I'm going to crowd fund my bills.

    Super Troopers 2 is coming out since they met their goal on the crowd fund.

    The multi-million dollar crowd funding campaigns always make me scratch my head, because I haven't seen one yet that couldn't have been funded through conventional means. I have friends who use crowd funding legitimately and shrug their shoulders at that, but it does annoy me.
