Kung Fury BLURAY!

Years ago, one of the first Kickstarter projects I backed was Kung Fury.  I saw the trailer that went viral and thought – I have to be a part of this!  The film was to go into production and the discs were expected to be shipped to the backers in November 2014.

The backers pledged over $630,000 and the film started filming.  The extra funds enabled more special effects, actors, etc.

I was super excited and couldn’t wait for my copy.

And when it appeared online on May 28 2015- for FREE, I was a little disheartened. I assumed the backers would get theirs first – but I was incorrect. No worries.

And then it showed up on Netflix. I still didn’t have a copy of the disc. I was in the group of backers who were asking questions – it was already over 6 months “late”. So we waited. And waited. And waited.

But today – 29 months later – I received by Bluray in the mail.  It has the second “red” disc (because there was an issue during production of the disc).  I sighed when I opened it – because I finally have my closure.

 

 

Kickstarter – “TALES OF MR. RHEE: “Those Who Fight Monsters…” Hardcover”

I’ve been following some creative people on Kickstarter lately.

At the most recent Fantasticon held in Toledo, Dirk Manning mentioned that he was putting out a Kickstarter for his long awaited Tales of Mr. Rhee book.  Honestly, I had never heard of the book, nor the series – but he was a local creator (419 yo!) and I wanted to support him.  I looked online and did a little research, signed up for his monthly newsletter, and am supporting his Kickstarter:

There are still 3 weeks to go (as of this morning) and he has doubled his initial quest.
