Your Kickstarter Promotion Thread

I promised a thread for you to promote your Kickstarter projects, and — behold! — here it is. This is where you can share with my up to 50,000 daily readers what you want to do that they should give money to you for.

But there are rules! Please read them before you post.

1. Please post projects listed on fundraising sites only. Kickstarter is the big name in the field, but there are others as well. The point is that there is an intermediary party that people are comfortable giving financial information to.

2. Creative projects and 501(3)(c) charities only. i.e., you’re selling something or you’re doing a charity fundraiser for a recognized charitable organization. Yes, I know some people raise funds to directly pay for their rent. Not here, please.

3. Current projects only. Which is to say, projects that are still open to fundraising. This should be obvious.

4. Briefly describe yourself and your project in the comment. That way people will know if they want to link through to the full project. Don’t go on too long, though. Imagine it’s an elevator pitch.

5. One project per post (and one link per post is advised). This is because if you have three or more links in a post it will be punted into the moderation queue, and I’m traveling this afternoon and won’t be able to free them immediately. One link per post is good. Obviously you may post about more than one project, provided it fulfills every other rule above.

If your post is punted into the moderation (or spam) queue, don’t panic. I will be going through both when I am on the ground (and, if my flight has wifi, there too). They will be released in due time and if history is any indication, people will go through the comments at all times of the day and often more than once.

6. No comments in this thread except projects. Any other comments (including comments commenting on posted projects) will be deleted. This comment thread is for pitching projects only. This makes it easier for everyone to navigate. If you have questions, e-mail me; the contact info is in the sidebar.

Okay: Pitch your projects, people!

  1. Vessel: a microbudget science fiction movie.

    Ash is a gifted interfacer who can communicate with ET’s, so well that he becomes too much like them: incredibly calculating but devoid of emotion. Day by day, Ash loses a parts of his humanity, bit by bit. Using a combination of sleeping inhalers (to counter the ET influence) and tons of coffee (to counter the sleeping effect of the inhalers), Ash’s time is running out as tiredness threatens to overcome him. He meets old acquintances delivering emotional attachments, hoping they can lead him to the one legendary woman who overcame the interfacing gift.

    OK: this is an IndieGoGo project (not a Kickstarter), but do keep in mind that foreigners (non-US residents) cannot partake in Kickstarter (while they *are* allowed to support projects).

    Also, this *is* a science fiction project, and Australians deserve support too (says this Dutchman).

  2. Here at Evil Hat Productions, we’re in the final few days of our Spirit of the Century fiction line kickstarter. Originally put together to fund the Dinocalypse Trilogy set in that universe, we’ve now expanded to 7 novels with authors Chuck Wendig (Double Dead), Harry Connolly (Child of Fire), C.E. Murphy (Urban Shaman), Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo), and Stephen Blackmoore (City of the Lost). Best of all? Backers of the kickstarter will get all 7 novels in e-book as they become available for a total of just $10 (less than $2 per novel). Check it (and watch the video, it’s a hoot): http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/evilhat/spirit-of-the-century-presents-the-dinocalypse-tri

  3. Tales of the Emerald Serpent is an anthology taking readers to the Free City of Taux, a fantasy port of cursed stones, dark plots, and a core of rich characters who share space inside the infamous Black Gate District. This anthology links characters and tales in an interwoven mosaic that helps draw the reader on, and with other authors like Lynn Flewelling, Harry Connolly, Martha Wells, Robert Mancebo, and Julie Czerneda sharing characters with newcomer Michael Tousignant and iconic fantasy artist turned writer Todd Lockwood, the book explores all the paths and back-alleys of city-born fantasy.

    We’ve got Volume One funded and are just over $2k dollars short of volume 2 – with just two hours left to go – so now’s the time to chip in, folks.

  4. At Candlemark & Gleam, we’ve passed our stretch goal for the print release of I, Crimsonstreak by Matt Adams, a “comic comic” novel about a superhero dealing with his “reformed” supervillain father having taken over the world while he was wrongfully locked up in an insane asylum.

    We’ve got 5 days to go and after passing stretch goal one, which unlocked a mystery grab bag of goodies, we’re shooting for a second stretch goal that will add a poster to every order, plus a print copy of a companion novella.

    “Saving the world isn’t easy when your only powers are super-speed and looking good in Spandex. But hey, someone’s got to do it!”

  5. Full Moon is a roleplaying game about life on the lunar frontier. Sometime in the future, man has colonized the moon in search of minerals rare and valuable on Earth. Men and women come in search of their fortunes, and where the ambitious go, opportunists follow.

    Full Moon is based on Fate, a set of rules that has been used in games ranging from contemporary urban fantasy (the Dresden Files RPG) to far-future hard science fiction (Diaspora). The system is built for games where the players have as much investment in telling the story as the GM does, and the rules reward players for their interest by giving them plenty of tools for influencing the game.

  6. Danny Hendrickson: ex-cop, PI, and half-faun,specializes in finding those who’ve fallen beween the cracks in NYC. He knows that everyone has a secret, good or bad. But when a fairy crime syndicate, a mer-clan, and a lost girl who knows who will die are set on a collision course, even a half-faun P.I. with all the smarts and all the contacts might be in way over his head….

  7. The Chicago Writers Conference (September 14-16) is Chicago’s only homegrown mainstream literary conference focusing on practical business advice for fiction and non-fiction writers alike. The brainchild of Mare Swallow, it will feature such editors, agents, and authors as Chuck Sambuchino, Christine Sneed, Robert K. Elder, and Jennifer Mattson, but it still needs to raise nearly $3000 for equipment rental, web development, and presenters’ travel expenses. Only six days remain in the Kickstarter campaign! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chiwritersconf/make-the-chicago-writers-conference-a-reality

  8. What about putting some money on the table for SCIENCE?

    Microryza is a crowdfunding site for science research! Many investigations don’t actually require very much money to get going and crowdfunding lets smaller players (grad students or post-docs with “risky” projects or projects that don’t attract big-name grants) get a start. You could help mankind find out why and how chiles got their spice!

  9. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/12fps/conspiracy-of-beards?ref=live

    “The Conspiracy of Beards is a 30-member a capella male choir that performs exclusively the songs of the legendary poet, novelist, and singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen.

    This year we’re creating a series of videos that tell the many stories of our bohemian adventures, charitable events, performances, and shed a little light into the lives and artistic pursuits of the members in the group.

    For more info, check out the video above.”

  10. My friend Katie is participating in the “Pineapple Classic 5K” as part of the Connecticut chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation. The event is about a month from now, and she’s $20 from her goal (of $50). Like most of her friends, I am a poor college student who had very little to donate. If anyone could donate a buck or two, that would be fantastic. Thanks, everyone! (Link should take you right to her page).

  11. THE WARLOCK’S CURSE is the third book in M.K. Hobson’s Veneficas Americana series (the first two were the Nebula-nominated THE NATIVE STAR and THE HIDDEN GODDESS). It’s edited by Juliet Ulman and has cover art by Lee Moyer. And it’s a staff pick! And it has a pup-o-meter! Please check it out. http://kck.st/II4fcO

  12. The man behind this project was one of my high school teachers, and a much bigger influence on my life than he will probably ever realise. He was also one of the first Christians I knew who really got that Christianity isn’t supposed to be about bullying non-Christians, so I was entirely unsurprised when he mentioned his project:

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/travisrogersjr/mommy-tell-me-about-god-a-film-project

    The basic premise? Instead of raising a *religious* child, raise an ethical, *loving* one, and the rest will fall into place… so when your child asks about God, what he thinks you should teach about first is love. If you agree, he could certainly use the support to make this film happen.

  13. Puzzle Strike (kickstarter: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sirlin/puzzle-strike-3rd-edition-shadows-expansion)is a competitive deckbuilding game designed by David Sirlin, the author of Playing to Win. It is 2-4 players, and each player gets to choose one of 20 characters, each with their own special abilities and backstory. Unlike most other deckbuilding games, Puzzle Strike has a high degree of player interaction. Everything that one player does affects all the other players, which makes the game both deeper and more fun!
    Puzzle Strike has been thoroughly tested over many years in order to become a well balanced tournament game, and is intended to be fun and exciting even after thousands of plays. In fact, there is so much strategy involved that the best tournament players have collaborated to write an over 100 page strategy guide to help new players understand the game and be successful in competitive play.
    Puzzle Strike is not just for competitive players, however. It is also a very fun game in casual play, with lots of different game modes including 2 on 2 team battle and 3-4 player free for all.

  14. An amazing artist I follow is raising money for an animation-on-live-action-backgrounds project, Franklin the Ladies Cat. I’d like to see more of this cat in action around NYC and other locales.

  15. I’m self-pubbing a novella companion to my second traditionally-published YA fantasy (The Broken Lands, Clarion, September). I’m using indie-bookstore-friendly resources to create 3 editions of the novella: paperback, digital, and Super-Special Digital Illustrated by Young Reader Artists. I’m raising funds on Kickstarter to pay costs including paying the young artists. Thank you!

  16. Fan of 80’s underground rock? Filmaker Gorman Bechard is making “Every Everything,” a documentary about Grant Hart. Hart was the drummer in the highly influential Twin Cities 80’s band Hüsker Dü. Bob Mould may be better known, but Hart shared half the songwriting and lead vocals during the Hüskers amazing run of albums, including a four year stretch from 1984-87 releasing Zen Arcade, New Day Rising, Flip Your Wig, Candy Apple Grey, and Warehouse: Songs and Stories.

    http://kck.st/yRcBKP or http://everyeverything.com (which redirects to the Kickstarter page) 16 days to go to support the documentary!

  17. Parsec is a table-top science-fiction roleplaying game – in the text we even reference some of Mr. Scalzi’s works as inspirational material or examples of setting elements. If you like science-fiction and/or roleplaying games, it is worth checking out. We have a promo video that explains a lot of the game as well as tons of comments and updates to read to get more information. You can find out a lot about the game in just a few minutes. Hurry, because there are only 9 hours left for Kickstarter funding!

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2072399402/the-parsec-rpg

    I was also interviewed by a gaming podcast, and during the interview I talk a lot about the game – the setting, the system, all that kind of stuff:

  18. Zpocalypse is an excellent board game from Greenbrier Games that I had a chance to demo at PAX East this year. Zombies, survivors, scavenging, and a board that can change layout each “day”. Greenbrier is a great bunch of people who work very closely with their backers regarding content, pledge rewards and goal rewards. There are only a few days left, and they are almost at their final goal level! As of this post, they are $131,104 of $150,000 (of a starting goal of $15,000). Check them out!

  19. Petridish.org is another science crowdfunding site. One of the projects I’m backing there is to track ancient dog populations in Africa. “Studying village dogs can improve dog and human health. By examining the genetic differences in village dogs from different places, we can determine genes related to local diet and climate, physical traits, and genetic diseases. Finding these genes allows for targeted therapies and genetic tests that could prove useful in improving dog and even human health — several genes causing human disorders have been first found in dogs!”

  20. My wife and her friend are looking to get funding for her candle company Old Oak Apothecary. She make Beeswax 100% organic candles:

    “Why we use beeswax: To make one pound of wax, worker bees will eat over 10 pounds of honey, will fly over 150,000 miles (the equivalent of six times around the earth), and will visit 33 million flower blossoms! If that isn’t awesome enough, beeswax is the only all-natural wax available. And it’s renewable! Soy doesn’t cut it, and neither does paraffin. Using beeswax is important to us because we want to craft a product that resonates in harmony with nature and is as sustainable as possible. And one that smells fantastic. Also, our beeswax is procured from local apiaries, and we love supporting beekeepers. ”

    Give it a look, plus my son DEVOURS a grapefruit on the video :)

  21. “The Graphic Textbook” is an attempt to turn comics into curriculum. The project unites the finest creative talents in the comics industry with the nation’s leading experts in visual literacy to create a gamechanging educational tool for the classroom: a comic that teachers will actually want to use and a textbook that students will actually want to read. It’s being developed by Reading With Pictures, a 501(c)3 educational nonprofit in coordination with the Learning Sciences Department at Northwestern University.

  22. Alice Assassin is a gallery show with a two (!) companion books that I’m working on getting into a Santa Monica gallery in time for the publication of both books in August.

    It’s a girl with a gun, a white rabbit, a kidnapping, two mad queens, and a black ops coup. It’s also some of the best work I’ve done to date with a camera.

    Check it out here!

  23. I’m a psychologist and writer from Portland, seeking funding for a guide for clients as they navigate their way through the talk-therapy process. There are plenty of how-to books for therapists out there, but not really anything for clients. The process of choosing a therapist and attending weekly sessions can be mystifying – what’s the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist? What happens if I see my therapist in public? What do we talk about in session? If I tell my therapist I’m feeling suicidal, will she have me locked up?

    I aim to write a book that demystifies the process and acts as a guide to better, more fulfilling therapy. Here’s the link! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1567189654/a-how-to-guide-for-therapy-clients-e-book-and-webs – the Kickstarter page includes links to my current blog, so you can get an idea of my writing style and topics I like to cover. Please feel free to add any ideas in the Kickstarter comments. Thanks for looking!

  24. Six men.

    Medieval gear, medieval costume, and 45+ lbs of armor.

    500 mile trip on foot from Belfast, Ireland to Edinburgh, Scotland. Four weeks of walking and camping with no modern luxury.

    Why are they doing it? To raise money for cancer research – the American Cancer Society, the Canadian Cancer Society and the Association for International Cancer Research, depending on where you’re donating from. Tax receipts available, all donations online, and they aren’t taking a dime for their expenses – your money goes to the charity, not them.

    They’re aiming for $100,000 and have $12,000 already – help them get there.

  25. I’m the current archival intern for Locus Publicationsone of the longest running science fiction and fantasy magazines in the field! Right now we’re running a Kickstarter to raise money so that we can process the archive. This means scanning, stabilizing, and filing around 40,000 individual objects from the preeminent writers in the field, letters and photographs from writers like Isaac Asimov, Octavia E. Butler, Ursula K. Le Guin, Robert Heinlein and hundreds of others.
    We’ve already reached our funding goal, but the more money we’re able to raise to more we’re able to do. Charles N. Brown, the founder of Locus Magazine, left hundreds of slides and microcassettes in storage when he died in 2009. These cassettes contain interviews we’ve never heard and the slides pictures we’ve never seen. Any additional funds will go to fund further improvements to archive.

    Thanks for checking us out!

  26. Allow me to tell you about my Kickstarter to publish my novel, Singularity Deferred: http://kck.st/GWhMIQ

    Mitchel Creek is an average I.T. guy from Iowa. He has a wife, a young daughter, and a simple life. That is, until he awakens aboard a spacecraft 400 years in the future, alone… except for the dead body stuffed in a crate. To find answers to why he’s suddenly where and when he finds himself, and a way back home, he’s forced to team up with radicals and pirates, and a woman who forces him to question everything he thought was true about the world he came from. 

    Singularity Deferred is a 108,000 word hard sci-fi novel involving faster-than-light travel, action and mystery, political drama, and a bit of romance. To find out more about the book, read a sample and start listening to the audiobook podcast here: www.tragic-sans.com/singularity.

    Check out my Kickstarter for several pledge incentives, including (of course) signed copies of the book and cover art, limited edition promo cards, and even the chance to name a character or ship!

    Thanks for looking. :) http://kck.st/GWhMIQ
     

  27. Please consider helping some awesome teens get to Boston to show their film:

    The Young Writer’s and Leaders is a program of the Telling Room, a non-profit writing center in Portland Maine. The program is home to 15 high school students from Rwanda, Somalia, Haiti, Uganda, Iraq, Afghanistan, Congo and Kenya. In addition to one-­on-­one literacy tutoring, college prep assistance, creative writing, job skills and leadership training, the students also participate in arts programming. This year’s concentration is the film project featured in the above video led by teaching artists, David Meiklejohn (filmmaker and director ofMy Heart is An Idiot) and hip-hop recording artist, Sontiago (Endemik Music).

    On May 24th, the students will premiere their short films in their hometown of Portland, Maine at Space Gallery. Over half of the students in the program have not spent time in another city outside of Portland. Over half of the students have not spent time in Boston, though it is a mere two hours away. Over half of the students have not traveled by train.

    If funded, our plan is to travel to Boston via the Downeaster train and spend the day in the city visiting a sister writing center and pairing up with Boston-area young writers. In the evening we will rent a film house that holds 250 people and screen the 15 original short films featuring each YWL student performing their individual stories based on myths about America and life as new Americans. The screening will also offer a Q&A with the Young Writers and Leaders students.

  28. Prisoner of the Japanese during WWII. Tank driver in the Korean War. Waiter. Children’s therapist. Merchant seaman. Medical doctor. My dad is the most interesting man in the world, not some beer pitchman.

    My sister has created a documentary about my dad, “Everyday Is a Holiday,” to tell his story, her relationship with him and more. And she needs funds for final production and promotion for air dates starting May 2012 on public television stations.

  29. The Calyx Institute is a non-profit, privacy-conscious ISP and telephony provider founded by Nicholas Merrill. Merrill was the plaintiff in a series of cases challenging the constitutionality of the FBI’s National Security Letters, and the experience inspired him to start an ISP that will keep as little data on its users as possible and develop open-source software to enhance privacy.

    In a world where digital liberties are constantly being eroded, Calyx can serve not only as a provider of privacy-enhanced Internet, telephony, and software, but also as an important proof-of-concept for others to set up similar companies around the world.

    Calyx is a registered non-profit and is in the process of obtaining 501(c)(3) status. You can read more and donate at: http://www.indiegogo.com/calyx

  30. Romeo vs Juliet is a pirates and ninjas themed production of Romeo and Juliet. The original text, but set and costumed in a 1790’s confrontation between Western privateers and indigenous assassins. There’s so much combat. So much goodness. It’ll go up in Chicago in May, but in the Kickstarter, you can influence a fight in the show, or get an away package with show materials. Check it, Internet!

    We’re producing a drama pilot for the New York TV Festival called “Control,” set in the Mission Control of the first manned mission to Mars. It’s written as a mix of Apollo 13 and The West Wing. We’re the team that made Pioneer One (http://www.pioneerone.tv), which won for best drama pilot at the NYTVF in 2010. We’re hoping to get the show picked up at the fest. Thanks for reading!

  32. Documentary on porn performers has 9 days to raise final $5,000

    http://kck.st/H2c2zR

    Public Sex, Private Lives is an intimate look at the professional and private lives of porn performers Lorelei Lee, Princess Donna, and Isis Love. Capturing both joy and struggle, this film follows the characters as they navigate their lives as artists, daughters, mothers, writers, and women who have made careers in the adult industry. Asked to defend their choices to their families, communities, and even the United States Government, these women reckon with their past decisions and shifting visions for the future.

  33. http://www.indiegogo.com/SirenSanJose?a=367191

    My name is Diana Heideman, and I’m the owner of Siren Fish & Reptiles. (And that’s our mascot, Siren the black pastel ball python, hanging off my necklace.) For the past 5 years, I worked and managed a local Bay Area pet store. I left my position there in 2011 to focus on opening my own store fish and reptile specialty store, with the intent of meeting the under-served needs of fish and reptile hobbyists in the South Bay. I have been breeding crested geckos, ball pythons, and corn snakes for several years, and have been vending online and at trade shows, previously under the name of 14th Street Geckos.

    I have served as a board member for the Silicon Valley Aquarium Society, and been tangentially involved with the Bay Area Amphibian and Reptile Society for years. I know the community, I know its needs, and I know how the current stores are failing hobbyists. It’s high time the Bay Area had a reptile store that carries more than leopard geckos and corn snakes, and a fish store that goes beyond neon tetras and guppies, and Siren is my solution.

  34. My name is Chris Cieslik, and I design + develop board games. I’m running a kickstarter for one such game right now:

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1889906682/the-phoenix-syndicate

    The Phoenix Syndicate is a board game about building an honest, hard-working criminal black market enterprise in space.

    “Legend tells of the daring exploits and relentless greed of The Phoenix Syndicate, that rose to power and created a galactic regime. But the old order has lost its fire and become bogged down with the affairs of the masses. It is time for a new syndicate to rise from the ashes of the old…and make a tidy profit along the way.”

    I’m looking to gather enough money to fund the print run for The Phoenix Syndicate in advance, since it’s a big production with lots of shiny bits and wooden cubes, unlike my usual simple card games :)

  35. Titans of Industry is a worker placement “Euro” style board game set in the 1920s. You buy Factories and Businesses, in order to produce and sell goods for money or victory points. Whoever can best manage their resources and money will win the game.

    I am running a campaign right now on Kickstarter in order to raise the funds necessary to manufacture this game. There is just over a month left, and I am about 1/3 of the way to the goal. One of the nifty options that we are offering to backers, is a chance to be immortalized by having one of the Factories or Businesses in the game named after you.

  36. My coworker is kickstarting a children’s book entitled Gwendolyn and the Underworld, a story about a young Pet Reaper (a Grim Reaper for pets) uncovering a conspiracy in the underworld. The artwork is a mixture of Grimley and Burton with a brighter palette. The dudes working on it: Ian studied Film Directing at Cal Arts and has worked at Sesame Street and The Jim Henson Company. Bill studied Animation at RIT, and has worked as a concept artist for video games, toys, and books with clients like Fisher-Price, Huckleberry Toys, and Universal Studios.

  37. I’m the producer of EVERY EVERYTHING: THE MUSIC, LIFE & TIMES OF GRANT HART. Grant was the drummer/singer and co-songwriter of Hüsker Dü, one of most influential bands of the last 30 years. With Grant as the only interview subject, EVERY EVERYTHING will tell the story of his life, from his beginnings, through his days in Hüsker Dü, and up to the present. In this feature-length documentary you’ll learn his influences, his obsessions, his loves, his passions, his art, his music, and everything in between, leaving no stone unturned. For the first time ever, you’ll hear everything about Grant Hart as told by Grant Hart — the good, the bad, and the ugly. Our previous documentaries are about another highly influential band, the Replacements (COLOR ME OBSESSED, which has garnered praise from places like ROLLING STONE, SPINNER, and THE VILLAGE VOICE), and the Archers of Loaf (WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?, set to premiere this June at NXNE in Toronto).

    Our Kickstarter page: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1542689813/every-everything-the-music-life-and-times-of-grant

    We still have some really great rewards like personalized line-drawings by Grant Hart, a chance to work on the film for a day as a production assistant or sit in on the editing process, and dinner with Grant and the crew. Please check us out — we have 16 days left. Thanks!

  38. To all Adventure Gamers!
    Show “Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective Adventure Mysteries” (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1920171553/sherlock-holmes-consulting-detective-adventure-mys) some love.

    Dave Marsh (creator of classic adventures like Shadowgate, Deja Vu and Uninvited) of Zojoi started this project to raise $55,000 that will fund the remastering of all nine Sherlock Holmes Mysteries and porting them to the PC, Mac, Android and iOS platforms.

    Existing and new fans will experience the fun of investigating and solving mysteries, gathering evidence and bringing their cases before the Queen’s magistrate – all in the unique style of these games!

    Back this project and choose from an interesting list of rewarding tiers – whether you want to be a real character in one of the Mysteries or an official writter for the London Times or work your way through the Musteries while enjoying “The Consulting Concerto”, a ten-track OST by composer Greg Brown!
    I’m Aura and only one of the backers, so come and see for yourself what the project is all about, just don’t miss out on the chance to bring these Games back to life.

    The campaign ends in ten days (Apr. 28), just enough time to show your love for Sherlock Holmes and his Adventure Mysteries!

  39. “Voracious” is a short film I wrote about the devastating and ravaging force of the love of a damaged woman, and the ripple effect on her lovers. I want to make the film in French and in black and white, the mood and style of the film is an homage to the French New Wave, and i think it makes the project more interesting. It is a very stylized story, with a few twist and very captivating characters, very human and raw. Our kickstarter is very low right now , in fact only a dollar, we are offering very cool rewards, and we have a small video of still pictures, that resembles the mood we want to create, we want a small amount to make our film, mostly to feed our crew and buy costumes, make -up, and rent some equipment.

  41. “Forest Fortress” is a “John Hughes Style Western.” The film tells the story of three hardworking friends set in the present day, rural landscape of the Pacific Northwest. This project is a feature length narrative that is being shot on 16mm film. One third of the project has already been shot and processed. Filming will resume during the last week of May and will be completed in June. The production team hopes to have the film shot, processed and edited by August 1st, 2012. At this time, Forest Fortress will be submitted to film festivals all over the United States and Europe.

    I am a film maker from Oregon and this will be my first feature. We are attempting to raise $10,000.00 through Kickstarter to complete the film. Here is the link to the Kickstarter page: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1036103400/forest-fortress

  42. We See a Different Frontier still needs some $1900 (plus change) to publish a special issue/anthology of colonialism-themed speculative fiction from outside the first-world viewpoint, co-edited by Fabio Fernandes and published by The Future Fire.

    For this anthology we will be looking for stories from the perspective of people and places that are colonized under regimes not of their choosing (in the past, present or even future).

    Also not a Kickstarter, but a Peerbackers campaign (Djibril Al-Ayad is from the UK, and Fabio Fernandes from Brazil). So support them, says this Dutchman!

  43. The Kenosha Festival of Cartooning is a 3 day festival of live presentations, workshops, a gallery show, panel discussions and community outreach by some of the nation’s top cartoonists. The funds raised will be for the appearance fees, travel and lodging expenses of the artists and will allow the Festival events to be completely free to the public. The funds raised will also pay for publicity materials for the festival and to defray shipping costs for some of the original artwork in the festival exhibit.

  46. Please check out the Kickstarter campaign Joe: a Real Story. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/791504433/joe-a-real-story

    While I am not the owner, I am partially responsible for getting it on Kickstarter. Steffan is a dear friend and we were talking about how to get funding. I mentioned Kickstarter and he put it up.

    Just one of the many great stories from our “Greatest Generation.” A black kid from Mississippi, looked upon as worthless as he sat in a foxhole in Iwo JIma. He returned to the states. College under the GI Bill, came to Denver, married a white women and lived the American Dream.

    This project came out of Steffan’s time with the Greatest Generations Foundation, a group that returns WWII veterans to their battlefields before they die. Steffan has not only written Joe’s life story is also working on a documentary of his life.

    Enjoy and please support.

  47. I am part of a team that is producing a Hard Steampunk webseries mixing live action with digital backlot – think in terms of “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow”. The script’s been in development for over two years because we’ve been “doing a Pixar” to get the story right first.

    Our campaign is for seed funding so we can get one scene fully developed so we can show what we can do.

    http://igg.me/p/93585?a=405734

    Help give us a leg up to the first rung.

  48. And FINALLY! We just got approved five minutes ago.

    Five Points is a comedy short film about the revenge of the roadkill. It features puppet zombie squirrels, potentially a monster truck, and Derrick the Squirrel Killer with really terrible hair. Spoiler alert: Derrick doesn’t come out too well in the end.

    We’re trying to raise $10,000 (because puppets are Not Cheap, and neither are good directors of photography, good cameras, food, transportation, and insurance) and we’re so so happy to be able to show this to everybody. We would love this to be the first in a trilogy of shorts. The second involves Existential Bunny falling in love with Jenny the Abused Wife, much to the horror and dismay of both the Zombie Squirrel Brigade and the extended Derrick the Squirrel Killer family. The third involves Existential Bunny trying to learn about women from Derrick’s reanimated corpse, after a disastrous Thanksgiving dinner. But first we have to raise the money for Five Points. If you can help, we are so grateful. If you can’t but like the idea, I’d love it if you can link to the piece.

  49. A beautiful dance piece based on Walt Whitman’s “We Two Boys Together Clinging” raising funds to take the show nationwide. Inspiring story about coming out, overcoming being bullied, embracing who you are and the life you’re given. The video for the Kickstarter is a must see.

  51. As was the case with Johan’s post, this isn’t my Kickstarter, but it is a project I hope gets funded. Vic Ireland (from Gaijinworks, and formerly of Working Designs) and MonkeyPaw Games are trying to get create a physical release for a Collector’s Edition of Class of Heroes 2 PSP, a Wizardry-like dungeon crawler. The CE would include, for only $59, the UMD disc, a soundtrack CD, a Hardcover artbook, and 3 extra items that those that pledge $100 will get to vote on, including a small dagger that doubles as a letter opener, or a school like piggy bank! Let’s try to get this funded. Only 7 days left!

  52. “The Astonishing Adventures of Doc Wilde” is entering its final week on Kickstarter (the last day is next Saturday, April 28th). As of an option I added today, it encompasses five pulp adventure novels, three to be published this year, two next year. They’ll all be available in ebook and trade paperback, and will be fully illustrated by Gary Chaloner (writer &artist of “Will Eisner’s John Law” for IDW).

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/timbyrd/the-astonishing-adventures-of-doc-wilde

    I originally started this series with Putnam, but have gone independent. These stories are my tribute to the pulp stories I loved growing up, and still love today. Like The Incredibles or the Indiana Jones films, they are suitable for kids and adults both, and are full of action and humor and weird science and occult menace and lots of derring-do.

    Some of the response the first book got when it was originally published:

    “Tim Byrd’s Doc Wilde swings in on a jungle vine to raise the flag high for adventure. Infused with pace, fun, and all the two-fisted action a reader could ask for, Wilde lovingly riffs on situations straight out of the old pulps, even while making them fresh for a new generation.”
    — Zack Stentz, screenwriter, Thor, X-Men: First Class

    “A true delight…Tim Byrd has taken Doc Savage, added in a pinch of Robert E. Howard, a liberal dose of H.P. Lovecraft, and mixed it all together in a well done, enchanting pastiche of the pulps that will appeal to the adult audience as well as the young adult readers. It is an over the top at times, rip roaring adventure that returns us to the days of yesteryear and leaves us wanting more.”
    —The Baryon Review

  54. Used to edit a little thing called Dragon Magazine. Now I’m kickstarting a collection of 13 RPG adventures for Pathfinder RPG: the collection is called Midgard Tales, and it is very much about D&D-style high adventure. Demons. Dragons. Probably some gnomes with a thing for Baba Yaga.

    It’s already blown through the first goal and then added on a sweet set of printable maps, but I’d love to have you aboard for some classic adventures in the style of Vault of the Drow or Tomb of Horrors!

  57. World War II gave humanity some of its darkest days, millions of men sent off to war, genocide on an unbelievable scale, and millions left homeless and their families destroyed. From America, to Germany, to Russia, to Japan and more, not a single country was left unscathed from the horrors of this war.

    Ghosts of World War II follows three friends as they traverse through some of the war’s most notorious sites, as well as the little known sites to hunt for spirits still lingering behind.

  58. The shuttle program was the launching point of many dreams for boys and girls and such a major part of our history as Americans. We at Shuttlwear have put to gather a technical illustration T-shirt of the shuttle that we hope will keep the memories of the people that worked so hard to give us the dreams of what is possible. We need funding to be able to start printing these t-shirts for the Smithsonian, and other museums, and online sales.

    We hope that as people are wearing these shirts or looking at our posters, that they will think…

    Think of the people who used these shuttles to go places we can only dream of.

    Respect the people that worked so hard to make this now retired program as success.

    Remember those that we have lost in our pursuit of Space Exploration.

    Dream of what the future holds.

  59. Hi, my name is Garry Gaber. I’m an ex-LucasArts project leader and I am trying to get a game called Starlight Inception off the ground through Kickstarter. It is a space combat game in the style of Wing Commander and X-wing vs. TIE. We have tried to gain national media attention, but are overshadowed by much bigger projects in the game arena. Still, we are almost 1/3 of the way to our goal. We just need people to check out our project, help us any way they can (even encouraging words) and spread the word.

    Kindest Regards,

  60. Help me make my next short film possible:

    Artificial Beauty is a dramatic short film that explores how society’s view of true beauty affects the public’s image of self worth. Our story follows Calli Collins, a high school senior who has always had a negative perception of her appearance. She goes on a journey of self discovery as she races to get the plastic surgery she’s been saving up for before the impending prom. Her hope is to attain the affections of the high school jock of her dreams. Her best friend, Lucas Fitch, attempts to muster up the courage to finally ask Calli out before she possibly makes the biggest mistake of her life.

  61. A man walks into a police station and wishes to report someone missing.

    “What is your relationship to the missing person?” asks the officer.

    “It’s me.”

    The Kickstarter-project page (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/21269065/remember-o-goddess-film-noir-adventure-and-love) for “Remember, O Goddess”, has a short sample of this unfinished, wrenching, Philadelphia- and Seoul-based movie, about a man who discovers himself a blank slate, lacking his own name or history and many basic life skills.

    It’s funny, it’s a noir and a love story, and it is amazing. I saw the teaser on Friday. I want to see how it ends!

    In Korean with subtitles. If you have been watching Korean culture lately, you know they have some of the worst candy-confection TV, and some of the best powerful authentic moving Movies. This is a great movie- and they’re out to get it fully funded and done.

  69. A good friend of mine, Joe DeRouen, has started a Kickstarter campaign to self-publish his first novel, Strange Things. It’s the first in a trilogy of dark fantasy novels set in small-town Illinois. To quote from the Kickstarter page: “It’s a hot June morning in a small Midwestern town when fifteen-year-old Shawn Spencer arrives at the church for his best friend Tanner’s funeral. Though his drowning was officially ruled an accident, Tanner’s sister Jenny swears she saw something rise up from the Carthage Lake to pull the struggling teenager beneath the surface.”

    The novel is dark, juicy, and very entertaining. Here is Joe’s page: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1514115972/small-things

  81. Nicolet Laursen Shows Kids That Different Can be Good in Her New Book
    Inspired by a volunteer abroad trip to Costa Rica, author & illustrator Nicolet Laursen, has created her first book starring a lovable sloth. What makes this story so inspiring is triumph of the protagonist, Ana the no-toed sloth.

    Standing nearly 6 foot tall with blonde hair, Laursen did not blend in while in Costa Rica. “I thought a lot about the differences that build walls between people,” Laursen said. “When I first saw a sloth I thought, ‘WOW, I’ve never seen such an odd animal!’ So I decided to use the sloth character in my first children’s book.”

    Approximately 42 colorful & unique illustrations carry the reader through a touching story of how an outcast’s disability gives her the strength to save an entire rainforest.

    Ana the No-Toed Sloth is the first of a series of children’s books Laursen hopes to produce. For more information about the project, visit the Kick Starter project http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1707008194/ana-the-no-toed-sloth

  82. I am doing a series of paintings–in my own primitive style–on the Everglades. I grew up in South Florida and began doing this seriously recently. I wanted to raise money for the project because, well, I am poor! I am a writer, artist and musician who runs a few websites that get some traffic and I would also be happy to help promote other folks creative projects. My shortened url for this project is http://kck.st/JdED6D . If you can pledge or spread the word I would be grateful.

  83. Hello. Here’s my story…
    Mom gave me a video camera as a kid way back in Saginaw, Michigan in the and movies got stuck in my head. I grew up… movies were still stuck in my head. I loaded up the car and moved to Beverly (not really – Reseda, CA – no comparison) with dreams of working with Steven Spielberg. Pretty close to broke and no Steven Spielberg in sight, a friend of a friend of a friend helped get an interview to work on a GM car commercial (first real film set I’d every stepped on in Hollywood). Ironically, being from Michigan, I spent my summers working in the General motors factory assembling steering columns in the student job program! I hustled, turned one little job into several little jobs. Movies still stuck in my head… trying to live my dream, I practiced filmmaking by shooting some small films with my video camera… still no Spielberg.

    Years pass…

    Got lucky, no GOD stepped in, and I got a call from a fella I met on the Sony lot. All he said was, “I need you to be on stage 27 at 8:30am and meet the director of this movie”. I asked what it was. He said he couldn’t tell me. I said okay, it’s a job and I needed it… I’ll be there! Now by this time, I had learned a craft called “video assist” which is where we record everything digitally to computers and play it back for the director, actor or producers so they can review the scene they just shot. Kind of like being a human VCR!

    Back to Stage 27…

    So I walk into the stage and my jaw drops! On the far side of the stage was a huge spider web. I’m thinking… what?! No… Then I here this voice hidden amongst other voices walking up behind me. I turn around and it’s Sam Raimi. I was standing on the set of the Spiderman movie. He was the guy I was to meet. I started seeing stars from the excitement. He and I were both from Michigan so we hit it off and I landed the job. I was to be Sam Raimi’s video assist operator on the next three Spiderman films! That ain’t luck my friend! I thought, well this ain’t Spielberg but this is awesome! Any time we got a chance, I showed Sam my little short films which he always watched with a hint of amusement on his face. He was very supportive and would always say stuff like, “You’re a great filmmaker, now use your talent and go cut together that scene I just shot. You got about one minute!” I didn’t care, I rose to the occasion and edited the video as fast as I could.

    One thing I forgot to mention was that the friend of a friend of a friend who helped me land my first interview on the car commercial had watched all of my little movies that I brought with me from Michigan. He said that he felt if directing and writing was the career I wanted then I should have a job that allows me to interact directly with film directors. This would give me the opportunity to learn from the best – the people who are really doing it.

    Between one of the Spiderman 2 and Spiderman 3, I thought, you know maybe I should try and get an agent. So, I took the best piece of work I had at the time and cut a little 2 minute trailer. Agents are hard to get to, especially the kind I was looking for (one that was gonna launch my career). Almost all agencies do not except material from new clients. You have to be referred by someone they already represent or they have to come looking for you. They really only come looking for you if you win a huge film festival…. its gotta be huge whatever is you win.

    I had a plan. I went out and bought a bag full of cut off (realistic looking) rubber fingers. I added some fake blood and dropped it into a large envelope. I also wrote a very brief letter, I was offering them my finger as a trade for two minutes of their time to watch my trailer. I figured that If they saw the red streaks of blood on the outside of the envelope before they opened it, their brain would be too busy wondering what it was and it wouldn’t have time to process the bloody finger on the inside. The shock would get their attention! I sent out 10 letters. I got six return phone calls! One of them being George Lucas’s assistant at the time. I even got a call from a producer that had a office over at Dreamworks! One step closer to Spielberg (at least I thought).

    I sent my trailer out to those that requested it. Some just called say that I really gave them a shock and thank you for the excitement. Needless, to say those that watched the trailer thought it was great and congratulated me on my accomplishment but no one was ready to give that opportunity I needed yet. So back to work…

    After we finished up with all the Spiderman films, I decided it was time to take everything I had learned thus far and write another feature screenplay. Almost immediately after I finished the script, I landed a job working on Peter Berg’s “Hancock” starring Will Smith. During the production I decided that I would rewrite a small scene out of the feature into a short film which I would try to shoot at some point if I could save up enough money. I was married now with two beautiful little girls and I couldn’t run off pretending to be Steven Spielberg anymore. I had to make each film I shot from that day forward really worth it. I wanted to gage the quality of my short script called the “Collector” and see what other thought. So, I gave it to Peter Berg. I mean he’s shooting big movies. The studio must think he has a good point of view / sensibilities when it comes to movies. So I gave it to his assistant and she gave it to him. I was nervous… for weeks and weeks. About a month had past and I asked Peter if had read it. He said, “My assistant never gave it me!” Hmm, no worries, I had plenty from where the first one came from. So, I found his assistant and gave her another copy. She swore up and down that she put it right in his hands weeks ago. She said she knew how to get him to read right away. “People love reading material when they go to bathroom”, she said. I said, “This would be great!” It took one afternoon and he had read it! He thought it was pretty good and said that I should either shoot it or throw it in the trash because I was wasting my time working on other people movies instead of my own. Hmm. I agreed with him…

    So, I shot the short and soon after hit the festivals. The short film “Collector” which stars the late Brad Renfro screened in well over 50 film festival and has won 27 film festival awards to date. I guess all those years of practicing and watching other directors shoot films have paid off… We’ll sort of…

  91. Hi, I want to introduce my vision for a web series that will finally lend some credibility and pride to the gaming community: Development Hell.

    I’m a recent film graduate, and along with some fellow alums, I want to create the first ever dramatic web series about game development. It’s going to be a fictional narrative set in 2004 that follows a small game studio founded by three college friends that’s struggling to make a name in the industry. It’s very heavily character-driven (think Mad Men for gamers, and obviously more amateur), but will still heavily tickle your sense of gaming nostalgia and tap into period-specific industry events, memes, easter eggs, and more. We hope you find it as exciting as we do!

    In 2694, the human world is on the verge of great change. On the outskirts of the civilzed universe, a lonely patrol discovers a race of spacefaring aliens that leave many in the military fearing for the safety of the human race, but the aliens aren’t the only thing that concerns the Human Defence League.

    A dangerous terrorist known as Zeus has escaped from prison and ignited a revolution that left unchecked will spread into a civil war. With a potential threat from without and a very real threat from within, the League sends David Stern undercover to bring Zeus in: dead or alive.

    David’s been waiting his whole life for a mission like this, but his opponent is two steps ahead of him and slowly but surely pushing the galaxy into a war that only David can prevent.

    David and his comrades race to track down and assassinate Zeus. The stakes are high and only getting higher and David has to choose what rules he must break in order to level the playing field and get the job done.

    What will he sacrifice for the sake of his objective?

  93. “The Quest of Arryn-Kaan” is my fiction project on Kickstarter.

The book is a fantasy/adventure that will send our modern day hero on a quest to seek out a sacred amulet and return it to the rightful beings that it was created for. The quest seems simple, but the path will be more twisted and dangerous than our hero could ever have expected. Incentives for pledges include e-books, soft and hard cover editions, and original T-shirts and graphics.

  95. Hey, I’m Nick Henderson and I am creating a photo documentary in the Philippines. I’m headed over in August to spend nearly a month living in and around these remote and harsh “black market squatter” gold mines. Thousands of families have relocated to these regions in the chase of gold, mostly as a reaction to the collapsing global economy. For thousands of children that means leaving the classroom and headed for cyanide and mercury filled days in the gold fields.

  98. —-The game of Reap! is a fast-paced Arena Arcade Action game about Reapers who have opposed Death’s idea of ‘stealing’ souls from victims. So Death, being the classy guy he is, pits the main character named Merik on a challenge to try and take back the souls from him in the form of an arena game full of his minions. The story is a play on the saying ‘Reap what you sow’ though in this game you are reaping what Death ‘sowed.’ If you like Arena games, or Arcade games, or Action games or any combinations of the three, this is for you. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1673361734/reap

  107. Hi everyone! My name is Chris Lewis Carter, and my campaign is for a new monthly book series called, “Camp Myth,” about a summer camp for mythological creatures. The main characters are tasked with earning the camp’s fantastic merit badges, including such feats as Kraken Fishing, Cyclopean Archery, and Golem Building. Think of it as a cross between mythology and Boy Scouts :)

    You can check out the campaign here: http://kck.st/JfqrpP.

    I realize how much it sucks to be hard-sold on something, but if Camp Myth speaks to you, and you feel like it deserves a place in the publishing world, I’d be eternally grateful for even the smallest amount of support. I can be reached on kickstarter or chrislewiscarter@gmail.com if you have any questions about the project.

    Thanks so much for your time,

    — The songs are written. The studio is primed. The producer is eager. The musician are warmed up. And Ayana Aquila is ready once more to step up to the mic and be heard. Pulling this project together has taken years of hard work and dedication on the part of everyone envolved. From following the muses during the creative song building process, to learning to adapt to the ever changing music industry demands, to hand selecting the right body of people to help give the project the integrity she has always sought in her creative body of work. But Ayana Aquila is ready for this new evolution of her musical stylings to be introduced to the world. With a harder darker edge than ever before, the new sound hopes to amaze, arouse and mesmerize all who hear it; haunting the audience and leaving them with a desire for more… Funds raised for this project will be used to cover the cost of recording the project as well as promotional material.

  121. The characters from the book, “The Other Side of the Fence,” come to life in the webseries of the same title. Enter the world of the not so loud and proud lesbian, bisexual, and bicurious women. Watch them navigate through college life, sexuality, friendships, addiction, and relationships. Their limits are tested, social norms are questioned, friendships are made, relationships ebb and flow, and the beauty of self discovery is realized. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/justang/the-other-side-of-the-fence-webseries

  122. Break the Walls: Stories Inspired by the Songs of the Pixies

    The concept for Break the Walls is pretty simple. What story plays in your head when you listen to your favorite Pixies song? I approached some of my fellow comic book creators and asked them to create 4-8 pages stories inspired by their favorite Pixies songs. The song acts as an inspiration, jumping off point, theme or mood for the story. Each story varies in style and genre.

  126. Just in case there are still people perusing this thread, I thought I’d link to my current Kickstarter: http://kck.st/LQNnwd

    Birthright is the first book in a science-fiction/fantasy trilogy titled The Technomage Archive. One of the major reasons I started writing Birthright is because I just love books that play with genre conventions. I want spaceships with my dragons and laser guns with my wizard staffs. I want an awesome sci-fi setting with a good ole fantasy plot and conventions.

    Unfortunately, cross-genre literature is a nightmare to market (example: Joss Whedon’s Firefly). That’s where Kickstarter comes in.

    In short our project is a 150+ page comic and a crazy cross of Japanese TV meets Looney tunes ($20 for the book + goodies). Our name is mayamada which is a fantasy TV network with an all-star animal cast.

Our other stories cross, action, drama, and comedy to make a truly one of kind experience.

  131. “On the brink of turning 31, Endearing mistfit AMELIA struggles with deciding which lackluster romantic partner will take her virginity, all the while dealing with her eccentric boss, her overbearing parents, and her biggest challenge yet: learning to drive.”

    I’m helping with this great project! “Bread and Butter” is a romantic comedy, but none of the characters quite fit the normal romantic comedy archetypes. The heroine is a little bit more relatable — she’s a bit nerdy (and not just because she wears glasses), and her flaws go beyond walking into tables sometimes. But she’s an authentic, interesting character, and you never stop cheering for her. The script has just the right amount of quirk and cleverness, while remaining entirely heartwarming.
    Even the kickstarter video will have you laughing and aww-ing, I promise. There are puppets, there is Deer Hunter, and there is a sing-along, but you should see for yourself how these elements all fit together.

    “All My Life,” a Documentary Film, seeks your vital support!

    What if our government kept a sealed record on your identity? What if you were never allowed to know about your real mother and father? Their names, their ages, their jobs, or even their hair color? Birth records are public information to most of the population, but are sealed to some adoptees. In fact, most adoptees have no legal right to their original birth records. Many would agree that being adopted is a difficult fact for many adoptees to embrace, but being legally barred from one’s biological history is a blow that some feel is in violation of their civil liberties.

    A brief synopsis: Primae Noctis is set 60 years after the Calamity, a crisis of war, disease, famine, and sudden ecological shift that leads to the deaths of more than 99% of the world’s 13.6 billion inhabitants. With the guidance of the Archonae, the survivors have formed an idyllic new society of secure and protected cities designed to elevate humanity to it’s full potential and to prevent the problems of the past from recurring. However, not everyone is content with life in the new utopia.

  154. Once upon a time science fiction was so powerful, so innately human, that it inspired audiences of all ages. Filmmakers such as Spielberg, Cameron, and Kubrick inspired us to gaze into the future, and challenged us to look into ourselves. Now, hopelessly dominated by stereotypes and cliches, this underrepresented genre is in dire need of a new life; a new energy.

    Tartarus is an emotionally powerful, yet epic, science fiction short film, more than two years in the making, that explores the most primitive of all human instincts: the will to survive.

Will Rick continue his familiar ways or make the change he yearns for? It’s a dark, psychological thriller that takes risks with it’s characters and plot, challenging our first impressions.

  156. Phil (Phil Donlon) is a man obsessed with the game of baseball: the sounds of it, the smells of it, the feel of the bat on the ball, and the men who have made the game great. It’s been in his blood since the day he was born to Len Harding (Geoffry Lewis), legend in the game. Baseball is his life. At least it used to be.

    At 33, Phil is still trying to make it to the big leagues and escape the shadow of his famous and domineering father. But his marriage is falling apart, he’s broke, and he’s just been released by the last team he thought could give him a shot at the bigs. Everyone is telling Phil that his time on the field is over: his agent Benny tells him that, his best friend Johnny tells him that, even his father tells him that.

    But Phil’s not ready to quit yet, so when Benny tells him of a development camp that just might get him noticed by some major league scouts, Phil jumps at the chance. The only problem is the camp will cost Phil three thousand dollars, and that’s three thousand dollars Phil doesn’t have. When Len refuses to give his son the money, Phil goes on a desperate quest to raise the cash by whatever means necessary. Navigating his way through the dive bars, pawn shops, and strip clubs of the San Fernando Valley, he’s out to prove he’s his own man and keep his dream alive. But when the darkness takes hold, it won’t willingly let go, and Phil must fight an army of his own demons just to make it out alive.

  158. Are you a fan of space fight-sims? Has it been a long time since you enjoyed a decent one? Then look no further.
    Meet Skyjacker (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digitilus/al-skyjacker) – an open-world, full-throttle space combat game.
    Skyjacker is based on the “Abyss Lights” book series written by the project lead, Eugene Zhukov.

    The player is the lone human in a galaxy of conflict – abducted by aliens, raised by pirates, wanted by privateers and mercenaries alike. You start on the bottom of the Pirate Stock Exchange and work your way up to the top, not by deliveries and fetch-quests, but through brutal missions like assassinations, sabotage, kidnapping, robberies, infiltrations and extractions. But there’s no fixed path – you do the jobs you want. And as you become strong, remember one thing: you’re a pirate. With great power comes no responsibility.

    There are ten significant alien races, each with unique biological features, social structures, interlocking histories, and star faring technologies – some industrial, some organic, and a few biotech that literally farm their spaceships in deep space.

    Skyjacker’s atmosphere is complimented by the talents of composer Krzysztof Wierzynkiewic (Witcher 2 and Bulletstorm) that bring out the colours of space. You can check some great samples here: http://soundcloud.com/skyjaker/sets/skyjacker-1/.

    There is a playable demo (http://www.skyjackergame.com/demo-is-on/) which has been updated & patched a couple of times during the campaign.

    The game is developed by Digitilus LLC (http://www.digitilus.com/), a studio formed by the core team of Abyss Lights Studio (http://www.abyss-lights.com/).
    The developers have been very active on their campaign, providing tons of written and visual information and interacting with the backers via the comments and private messages.
    Their latest gift to all backers can be found here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/digitilus/al-skyjacker/posts/271385 – read carefully.

    Please check out Skyjacker; it’s in its final hours and still needs a lot of love to succeed.
    The rewards are great and there’s something for everyone – you get a bunch of goodies for just $20.

    I’m Aura and a happy backer of Skyjacker!

    BOOK BLURB
    When a group of disobedient angels, commanded by the archangel Michael, visits pre-historic Earth to play a game of war, they inadvertently alter human evolution.
    For their crimes against humanity, Michael and his followers are arrested and thrown in the bottomless pit when dinosaurs, terrible lizards, are found roaming the land instead of man.
    Shortly after, a fierce debate divides the heavenly senate as the son of god and Lucifer decide over what should be the fate of planet Earth.
    The heavenly senate casts their vote, tilting the pendulum scale in favor of the son’s solution for Earth. Lucifer rebels and conspires against all of creation, bringing the forces of heaven upon him before all is lost.

  160. Award-winning writer, Ripley Patton, seeks to fund the indie publishing of her YA paranormal thriller Ghost Hand. http://tinyurl.com/d49hdx9

    Book blurb:
    There are secrets we keep hidden deep inside of us. Secrets of abuse and abandonment and self-harm. No one can see them. No one can find them. No one can touch us there.

    Until now.

    Olivia Black just discovered that her ghost hand, a genetic defect, can do more than light up a room. It can reach into people and pull things out. Things from the darkest depths of the human psyche never meant to exist in this world.

    Olivia can pick-pocket the soul.

    But she can’t control her ability, or the strange items it extracts, and the only thing between Olivia and the men bent on taking the power of her hand is a boy she barely knows and doesn’t trust.

  161. Political Encomium
    Inspiration can be found in a number of places, in nature, in history, in people, in words. In politics, we always remember all of the campaign promises made, the scandals publicized or the name calling between the parties. And there are even a few quotes that we have committed to memory. But rarely do we focus on the real in-depth things that our political leaders have said, the candid viewpoints on how we can work together, an inspiring thought as to how we can be better than we were before, a solid belief on how things should be. These statements are rarely brought to light but they should be and they should never be forgotten. That is the purpose of this book.

  162. We’re raising funds on Kickstarter to get a theatrical release for THE SELLING. It stars Gabriel Diani (Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Robotic Edition), Janet Varney (Legend of Korra), Jonathan Klein (Hotel For Dogs), Etta Devine (Freakshow), Barry Bostwick (Rocky Horror Picture Show), Nancy Lenehan (Worst Week), Simon Helberg (Big Bang Theory) and Jocelyn Towne (I Am I).
    THE SELLING is a supernatural comedy about a real estate agent trying to sell a haunted house. It gives a fresh take on the classic “scare comedies” of Abbott and Costello and Don Knotts’ THE GHOST AND MR. CHICKEN with subtle references to modern horror classics such as THE EXORCIST, THE HAUNTING, THE AMITYVILLE HORROR, and (of course) THE SHINING. It has been compared favorably to such comedy greats as GHOSTBUSTERS and SHAUN OF THE DEAD…by people other than our family members.

  164. Hello,

    My team and I have recently been given the rights to film the MISS UNIVERSE CHINA training program and Pageant.

    ‘Billion Dollar Beauty Boom’ is a documentary about women in China, and the impact that beauty has on them. With exclusive access to Miss Universe China’s one-month training programme for the 30 finalists, we will follow three girls down their journey to stardom, discovering along the way their personal stories, dreams and hopes. From the days of foot binding, to Concubines, to the sexually dead Cultural Revolution, to the ‘beauty boom’ taking place today; it’s been a hell of a story for Chinese women. Crucially, we will explore where this story has brought women in China today, and what issues do they face now with relationships, social pressures, appearances, family etc.

    The West knows too little about China and Chinese women; there are many misconceptions and inaccurate ideas surrounding them. Our aim is to create an honest and enlightening portrayal of what is really going on, from the inside out. In order for this to be effective, it will be entertaining and personal, as well as truthful.

    Our documentary will film ‘the finest women in China’ going through their military-style training, as well as interviews with them and Yue-Sai Kan (‘China’s Oprah Winfrey’), experts from across the country, survivors of the Cultural Revolution, authors, and historians.

  166. I just launched a Kickstarter project for a national art tour in my 1948 Housecar. The project entails release of two books, one a retrospective on my art and the other the story of inspiration behind it. That one is about an eight year trip around the world to some very remote places searching out art. A third book will be written during the tour detailing creative methods practically applied. My media is Reverse Painting on Glass, Stained Glass and Acrylic on Canvas. Please take a look and let me know what you think.

  167. Here is some info on a the book [ours] Hyper-localization of Sustainable Architecture I just launched. I am working with the Institute for the Built Environment and eVolo publishing on making a high quality ground breaking book on environmentally astute design in the 21st century- check out the video for a glimpse of the projects we will cover.

  168. “Birds of Lore” is a highly illustrated book that chronicles a mix of birds from myths, legends, folktales, cryptid sightings and throughout all literature. Instead of a mere list of descriptions, it’s narrated by a character known as the “Mythologist” who is able to go to any lengths to see these fantastic creatures firsthand, and tell you what happens next, in journal form. http://kck.st/Qa4ems

  169. LOW-TECH goodness for the iPad!!

    NOTEBLOX – a magnetic, stackable iPad journal.

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1582711633/noteblox-magnetic-stackable-ipad-journal

    My idea was for a simple paper notebook that would have magnets built into the front and back bindings, strong enough to hold the Apple iPad (newer generations). The magnets also attach to pens, styluses, and refrigerators as well as each other. The final product is not a simple paper pad insert to be protected by a traditional iPad cover, but a unique object that would have a functional advantage over other notebooks, and have a tangible archival value with or without the iPad.

    Available at KICKSTARTER.com for $15, or 3 for $40 (with free shipping for a limited time)

    Thank you,

  171. I’m Brian Schirmer & I write comics. Ultrasylvania has been a passion project of mine for the past year.

    In the 19th century Europe of ULTRASYLVANIA, Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, and a certain Egyptian resident don’t lurk in the darkness – they’re world leaders, struggling to hold their nations together amid assassination plots, romantic betrayals, and political intrigues.

    This last spring, I had the good fortune to work with Jeremy Saliba & 11 artists at the Academy of Art, and together we brought Ultrasylvania to life as a webcomic. It’s coming out in print in October – but only with your help.

  175. The X-pen is machined out of 6061 aircraft grade aluminum and uses a felt tip pen called the Pilot razor point. We love this pen and think that it deserves a makeover. We made this pen with designers, architects, engineers, and do it yourselfers in mind. Its small compact size (.43in x 4in) fits in pockets unnoticeably and feels great while in use. We concluded a diameter of .43in thanks to the help of a series of different sized prototypes and asking our friends to try them out and tell us what they thought felt best.

  176. Hello,

    My name is Stiven Deleur and I am a 14-year-old mobile app programmer. Recently I have developed a game called Donkeys and Elephants: Chow Down. In this game you play as either Donkey (Democratic Mascot) or Elephant (Republican Mascot). I believe that this game can predict the winner of the coming presidential election because of its main feature. That is game’s global score. When a person plays the game as either character, his/her score gets sent to a database where it gets added to the global score. In the app everyone can view who is winning – Donkeys or Elephants (Democrats or Republicans) by comparing the global scores. So all players vote and support their favorites by playing and having fun!

    As to the game’s other features – you control the character by tilting your device and you try to collect as many foods as you can to receive points. This game is integrated with Game Center, as well as Facebook, Twitter, and Email sharing. It features an in-game store in which you can purchase add-ons, utilities, and upgrades for virtual credits which you collect during the game. And many more…

    Currently this game is in the app store, but the features described above will come in an update that is coming very soon. To help us release this update, and also publicize this game, we have set up a Kickstarter project to gather funds (check it out at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1807924575/mobile-game-chow-down-or-donkeys-and-elephants).

Everyone also seems to agree – the world needs more FlashPals! Please help fund the production of new FlashPals designs and get yours before anyone else. Project deadline is SEPTEMBER 16.

  186. Blotter: A Film Noir on Acid

    “Detective Jack Anderson is a private eye living the life of an old fashioned pulp film noir character living in modern day Philadelphia. He drinks hard, but takes his job incredibly seriously, working outside the law, taking cases the police ignore. While on the trail of a potential serial killer, he receives evidence that a victim is being held hostage and it’s up to him to solve the case before another life is lost. But what he doesn’t expect is that someone has ‘slipped him a mickey’ – in the form of LSD. But by who? Why? Does he move forward with the investigation? How can he solve a case when his very perceptions of reality are being torn apart by drugs?”

    Please help make this film possible. Much hard work and time has been put into scripting this film, and any donations will be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU!

  190. I am going to make a Motown throwback record that sounds like 1963. It will have some current sounds to stay fresh and original, like a male Amy Winehouse kind of thing, but it will be grounded in that early 60’s classic Motown sound! I am drawing inspiration from Al Green, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder and Hall & Oates.
    The record is called “Yellowjacket” and I am going to employ real horns, real grand piano, bass, drums, electric guitar and that signature tambourine! I feel like this is the record I have always wanted to make.

    PAST THEIR PRIME is a short documentary that ventures into the world of geriatric zoo animal care, focused on the oldest-living gorilla in captivity, Colo, and her 55th birthday celebration.

    Produced as a thesis film from UC Berkeley’s grad school of journalism, the film is complete but needs your help to get out into the world. Already accepted to 3 distinguished film festivals, we’re raising funds to submit to more. In return, offering fun logo shirts, posters, and dvds. Any funds raised beyond the festival need, will go back to wildlife conservation efforts.

  195. Hello! Fired Urth is an Espresso cafe to be launched in Charleston SC in late 2012. Our goal is to help nourish the community through food. Here at Fired Urth we believe that the best ingredients are found right here at home. We have partnered with local farmers to bring the freshest fruits and vegetables directly from the farm to the table. We believe in free-range chicken, hormone-free beef, locally sourced dairy products and bringing back heirloom fruits and vegetables. There’s nothing like biting into a tomato bred for flavor instead of one engineered to survive a cross-country trip! Our pastries are made using only the finest chocolates, freshest butter and cream, no mixes and no preservatives. We break our own eggs, peel our own apples, roll our own pastry, and squeeze our own lemons. Our milk will come from local dairies, fruit will be served fresh, in season and locally sourced when available. We will offer a light breakfast and lunch menu consisting of natural and organic ingredients for the health conscious consumer. Food is our passion and health is our priority. We look forward to being a part of your families next meal!

  196. Here is my Graphic Novel Kickstarter Project:

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mikepark/2043-second-revolution-a-graphic-novel-part-i

    In the year 2043, a super-powered team sets out to save America from a sinister organization that has enslaved the nation.

    Launched: Aug 29, 2012
    Funding ends: Sep 28, 2012

    This graphic novel series could be characterized as ‘Tom Clancy meets Stan Lee’. Not only will we have a lot of fun with cool superheros and awesome artwork, but we will also explore the social, political, and military implications of a Second Revolution.

    The year is 2043, and America is in a precarious state. The global economy is in shambles, the national debt is 48 trillion dollars, food shortages are a constant threat, power outages are common, and the population has been divided into a ruling elite class and working serf class. Unknown to the public, this has all been part of the plan of a secretive shadow organization (known only as ‘Shadow’), which has slowly taken control of all 3 branches of the federal government. Under this plan, the American people have gradually been converted into servants of Shadow.

    Our heroes discover the plot of the shadow organization’s final push to permanently enslave the citizens, and they are faced with the task of saving America.

    Our team of heros have been granted powers through the advanced technology available to a select few in 2043. Some have been genetically enhanced by splicing animal DNA, some have been enhanced with bionic prosthetics, and some have been experimental subjects using ‘non-earth’ technology discovered in 2015 by the Mars Rover, ‘Curiosity’. To save America, they must team up and battle the forces of Shadow.

    In this 3 Part series (this will be Part I), we will chronicle Shadow’s takeover of the nation’s government, and follow the paths of our heroes’ discovery of Shadow’s deadly final push to permanently enslave the American public.

  197. My name is Jason Mills. I am part of a creative family formed with some of the most talented and awesome people I have ever met, and collectively we are Just Our Thought, based in St. Louis, MO. We are working on a lot of cool things, but we’ve got a new project that we are really excited about and would like to share.

    The Color Feast Beasts– http://kck.st/O1b9dc

    Launched: Aug. 22nd, 2012
    Ends: Oct. 06, 2012

    We have written and illustrated a new children’s book. It’s a whimsical tale called the Color Feast Beasts. Wild and clumsy and colorful creatures, called “Yooms,” pop out of their very comfortable, countryside, hillside holes to gather all of Granny Nature’s worn out colors for the winter. It’s to give those hard-working hues a rest before the “Royal Sunbirds of Saint Magoo” reemerge to spread the colors once again, from the tip of your shoe to Timbuktu!

    We are looking to bring this story to life through hardback printing, eBook development, and plush toy production of the lead characters.

    Thanks for your support!

  202. “BIRD CALL” KICKSTARTER: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2131822910/bird-call-0

    What is “Bird Call”? “Bird Call” is a series about a flock of diverse birds who run the radio station W.I.N.G. in the backyard of a clueless human family.

    In 2002, I (Calvin Lester) created the series “Bird Call”. What began as just a few doodles of colorful wacky birds has slowly evolved into a 10 year in the making project. “Bird Call” was never on my radar of becoming anything special. But, here we are in 2012 starting “Bird Call”‘s own Kickstarter account! It has been a long journey getting to this point; but still, it’s only the beginning.
    In order to make this project a success we need to film a Pilot Episode (The first episode) to showcase to interested buyers and investors. The process of making this involves a good chunk of dough. With the show being done in the live-action format AND with puppet characters, there is a big need for money to complete it. A lot of the funding for “Bird Call” has come out of our own pockets. We’re very dedicated to the project, but can’t afford to go broke doing it. The money we are hoping to raise through Kickstarter will go to:

    PUPPETS – Making the birds look as designed and work properly for filming.
    SETS – The sets for the radio station needs to be built to enhance the storytelling of the show.
    CAST & CREW – We need to be sure that those apart of this project get paid! Their hard work has paid off.
    FILMING LOCATION – The show will be filmed in a studio and we need to be able to rent out the space for our production.

This project needs to be funded so that the recording of the song can be completed(my recording engineer needs $ from me) and I can purchase rights to use the visual media that I will need to do the video the way I want to.

    This will be something that will speak to the world, because there is always a dictator falling somewhere.

  212. SMOKING MIRRORS is a one of a kind “Performance Design” event created collaboratively with designers and choreographers.

    For this event we are exploring and expanding the architecture of the body in motion by creating a fantastical, whimsical, and distorted interactive environment where the lines between object and human, viewer and viewed, performance and experience are blurred. Quite simply, we are creating “bodies by design” and “design by bodies”.

  213. In THE LADYBAIT MEMOIRS – a feature-length comedy – we watch as Oliver, a narcissistic hipster, secretly decides to hypnotically seduce his best friend’s girlfriend. This indie film is not just another “indie film” – we daresay this is the kind of story that Hollywood and the big studios wish they still knew how to write. Empower us to make a film like you’d love to brag to your friends about!

  214. Afterearth: The Fall.
    A total community-collaboration role-playing game. Fantasy + Sci fi + post-apocalyptic.
    We decided to open our RPG up take community additions of all kinds, pay artists to draw.paint everything the fans gave us and then release the entire thing professionally edited. Its been 12 years in the making and Kick-starter was almost made for this kind of thing. We even offer a copy of the game for 1 buck. But we aren’t really hitting it off. Sometimes pledges for 1 dollar can hold you back when it comes to books.

  217. I’m trying to get funding to help me write UX 101: A Primer on User Experience Design.

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1666720383/ux101-a-primer-on-user-experience-design

    My name is Joseph Dickerson and I’m a User Experience Architect at a Fortune 500 company. Last year I wrote a book on UX called Experience Matters: Essays, Tactics and Lessons on User Experience Design (available on Amazon, iTunes and for the Kindle – currently FREE for the iPad). This book was my first attempt into collecting my thoughts around UX, and it has been well received.

    I’m currently outlining my followup book, which I’ve titled UX 101: A Primer on User Experience Design. I plan on detailing out the basic skills and processes than anyone can use to apply user-centered design principles in their organization or business. There’s a HUGE demand for UX professionals (over 9000 opening on LinkedIn as of the time I write this), and there is a dearth of material aimed at the “newbie” interested in learning about the discipline. I hope this book can help fill that gap.

  218. Hello. I’m trying to raise funds to get my new novel, The First Family of Main Street, published. The book examines the true cost of unbridled ambition. It is set in present-day South Carolina and is inspired by a real-life story of secrets, sex, lies, and political corruption. The First Family of Main Street explores a number of ethical issues which I hope will make a reader think twice about how our elected officials conduct both their personal and professional lives.

  219. Hey everyone! My name is Chris Feinstein and I am a stand up comic out of New York City. I am trying to raise money to shoot a short film I wrote. The name of the short is “Saturday Night Special”. It’s a horror/comedy that in my opinion and in the opinion of anyone who has read it takes both genres and blends them perfectly with just the right laugh to scare ratio.

  220. Hello everyone! My name is Kira and I’m the treasurer on the executive board of the F.U.D.G.E. Theatre Company. Through our kickstarter campaign, we’re hoping to raise the money to put on a production of a beautiful musical called “Parade” and to help our company grow and thrive so that we can continue to bring excellent entertainment, culture and art to the Boston, MA area.

    About the show itself: In 1913, Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia, is put on trial for the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan, a factory worker under his employ. Already guilty in the eyes of everyone around him, a sensationalist publisher and a janitor’s testimony seal Leo’s fate. His only defenders are a governor with a conscience, and eventually, his assimilated Southern wife, who finds the strength and love to become his greatest champion. The trial had lasting impact; the events subsequent to Frank’s trial led directly to the formation of the Anti-Defamation League, an organization that today continues to combat anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry in the United States and abroad.

    If you’re a fan of the arts, musicals, justice, tolerance, and other good things like that, please help us tell this incredible story that everyone can learn from.
