Shooting for the Kickstarter Video Is Complete.

Wow!  What a weekend!  Well, it was a long day of shooting (with a break in between to catch my son’s championship basketball game – which they won! Go Hoosiers!).  Anyway, the perfectionist I am, I keep thinking there is something more we could have done, but alas, I’m sure the final product will be great.  A big thank you for everyone who helped: Alec, Eric, Melanie and her husband Tony, Joe, and of course my wife and son (Fabi and Diego – Oh and our dog Malo – she has a cameo).  An extra special thank you to Alec for not only shooting the video, but also allowing us to use his wonderful home.

Well, I can happily say that we can now check off one more milestone on the road to Kickstarter.  So, you may be asking…what’s next?  Well, we shipped the footage off to Jon (my cousin and editor extraordinaire).  He will probably start editing sometime next week.  We also were lucky enough to get a professional voice over artist to help us with the intro.  I’m looking forward to hearing how that came out.

As we crawl into September, Eric, and I will be preparing the Kickstarter project page, and finalizing our rewards!  We will also finally start our advertising and spreading the word campaign to get everyone ready for the big launch.  Dariush is also putting together some nice concept designs that we will be including in the project, and Aziz is hard at work animating our logo for the intro to the video.

Thanks for listening.


We are shooting our Kickstarter Video This Weekend

We are making more progress, and bringing our Kickstarter project a little bit closer to reality.  This weekend we will be shooting our video.  We are happy to welcome Alec Tuckman (experienced filmmaker) to our team.  With his experience, and support I know we will have a great and entertaining video for all of you to watch.

As we build up to the final climax of our Kickstarter launch, I started to reflect a bit on what we’ve done up to this point, and realized how much work it truely is to get our project off the ground.  We could have probably done a lot less work, put a lot less time in, and just “let it happen”, but my feeling is that we want to guarantee as much as possible a successful funding project, and I believe the more you put in to something, the more you will get out of it.

We do still have lots to do, but I’m starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel…

More updates still to come.

Jon Emmet Just Added To Our Advisory Board

I am happy to announce the latest member of our advisory board.  Jon Emmet is an experienced avid editor for television entertainment, and all around great guy.  His enthusiasm, support and encouragement for our new venture is both inspiring and appreciated.  We believe his participation on our advisory board will bring great insight and great energy and look forward to working with him.

On a separate note; he is gracious enough to help us edit our Kickstarter video.
