Tomorrow night (around 10pm Central European Summer Time) we will finally launch our campaign! More or less in sync with the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival in Portland, Oregon where the full (albeit not fully finished) 6-minutes preview of “The Dreamlands” will have its premiere. This preview consists of the three already released teaser trailers and new connecting scenes you haven’t seen yet. On our campaign page you will learn about how to unlock and get to see that longer preview.
And what’s about that astronaut kid? Well, SPACEBOY is a company for crowdfunding support founded by Timo Vuorensola, the director of IRON SKY. And he and his fresh new company agreed to help us running this campaign! I’m really grateful for the upcoming guidance and support by Timo who has extensive crowdfunding experience as an independent filmmaker, very good connections to the entertainment industry and last but not least is a big Lovecraft fan as well.
And it’s not that we can’t need additional help for the campaign. Due to being forced to postpone the campaign by more than a full month, our personal schedules got mixed up – both co-producers will be gone soon: Ephraim Wörner already accepted a job opportunity starting April 19th that will bind him for full three weeks and Jan Roth will depart this Saturday for a long planned Kung Fu training vacation in a Chinese Shaolin temple for more than a month (no kidding, you shouldn’t mess with him).
It would be extremely hard to run this campaign almost alone, having to pay my bills as well – so I’m really thankful and looking forward to this collaboration with SPACEBOY!
