finally I'm on kickstarter!
« on: 04 Feb 2014, 08:11 »
You might remember me talking about kickstarter, checking logos and asking lots of questions. Well here's the result:

Beauty & Hope in the 21st century


The image is clickable and leads to the kickstarter campaign

At last I can reveal everything. In fact the video in the kickstarter page will reveal it for me. I went to all this trouble shooting and editing the video, so it's worth it!

As, you might expect, with a rather large sum of money requested (£10,000) I'm inclined to ask for help everywhere! Including my homepage for the last 8 years!

But, I can promise you these:
  • The project WILL happen no matter what. The publishing house has published more than 60 titles thus far and there's no reason for this one to fail.
  • Everything in this project will be of great quality. I can personally guarantee that!
  • It will be a very interesting CD, score, artbook, whatever to hold once it's done. I have seen the various parts of the scores coming in and I know that the end result will be most satisfactory

So,

If you're into classical music, piano, sketch illustrations or... me... then go ahead! And, please, spread the news everywhere you can.

Nikolas

PS. I just launched a couple of hours ago, thus the £0 at this moment.

Awesome! I wish you the best of luck! And that video is impressive indeed. Not a classics guy myself but I this is good stuff.

I will admit that I had help! From AGS people indeed.

Cerno has been with me the whole time, providing feedback all along the way. And Chris (Limpfish) was kind enough to help with the 3-d mockups... :)

And now you, Ghost!

I'm trying my best to truly give out the honest impression of what we're trying to do. And I can promise you, as I said above, that it's going to be awesome! :)

Awesome job man! I will definitely contribute in the near future!

    Pssshh, don't say things like that - it might discourage people from pledging if they think their pledge won't make a difference ;)

    But seriously, this looks (and sounds) like a wonderful project! I'm short of money right now, but I hope I'll be able to pledge by the end of the campaign. This is worth supporting, and I'd be interested in both the the digital score and the recording.

    I wanted to make sure you guys know how dedicated we are to making this happen. The truth is that if kickstarter fails, we'll fall back to only doing the music score and the recording, offering it in mp3/flac format (so cut down heavily on the products), but other than that...

    Thank you! :)

    Heh. I got my mug all over the 'net much already! Haha, but I am very excited for the project - and I'm excited to see the score! Best of luck to everyone involved with your project; I'll be sure to mention it in one of our KS updates as well!!

    I felt sorry for myself because I had no shoes.
