I thought I’d take a second and post about something that isn’t ‘R.E.M.’. If you read this blog you may know that I’m in post-production on a feature film entitled White Space. I wrote the story, co-wrote the script and produced the film.
With over 800 vfx shots, it is a very long post process. And our vfx aren’t what you typically see in independent films. So it’s a painstaking process. However, we are making serious headway – and I wanted to post a picture of the cockpit in the Essex (our space vessel).
I went to sleep kind of early last night… and somehow I woke up and my ‘R.E.M.’ Kickstarter passed not only the $14,000 mark, but the $15,000 one as well. And we are almost up to 500 backers. I am floored. And grateful. And appreciative.
It also means the full set of 3 ‘R.E.M.’ Desktop Wallpapers are UNLOCKED.
We have 26 more hours to go… hard to believe. I have basically made this campaign my full time occupation the last 4 weeks. I am going to miss the daily interaction on Kickstarter – but it won’t end for me – it will just be a different forum (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest – username ‘spokelane’ for all of them). Of course here as well. And once the book goes out that is when it will really set in – because the whole point of this was for everyone to ‘R.E.M.’ and the support received has made that possible!
Speaking of reading, here’s a good one for Oscar Wilde about that subject…
Just got a box in the mail with 2500 ‘R.E.M.’ Bookmarks. I couldn’t wait until after the Kickstarter and ordered them early. If you need bookmarks for anything, I recommend 48 Hour Printing. High quality, you get it almost immediately and at a good price.
