What will the posters and postcards look like?
I have no idea, because that's entirely his decision. How Amos rolls is you tell him what words you need on the posters and your deadline, you pay him, and he will take it from there. I learned a very long time ago elsewhere that when you discover an artist with A-Game you trust him and you get the fuck out of his way. My assumption is the 2011 posters will not look like the 2010 posters, but that's it. All I know is that they will be gorgeous!
(Note, the pasted on HFF logo in some of the pictures is entirely due to something I screwed up due to 101 Learning Curve ignorance, requiring me to damage the posters selected for posting in the Wild. That mistake won't happen again this year.)
I very much hope I get to see what he creates, because the only way that will happen is if this Kickstarter effort reaches 100%. Which brings us to the SQUEE portion of this post...
WILL YOU LOOK AT THIS SCREENCAP! JUST LOOK AT IT! OMG!
That screen shot means I AM ALMOST THERE!!! Truthfully, part of me is stunned that an unknown such as Moiself got this far, but I'm also extremely proud that all of my very hard work behind the scenes got me this far. Now I've got six days to somehow, from somewhere, pull in the final $1,471 needed to meet the finish line. How Kickstarter works is all-or-nothing. You come up $1 short? That means you don't get any of it.
I'm working these final days hard behind the scenes to get there. Know that, please. I'm not sitting on my tush waiting for miracles.
I might not succeed with this first attempt to step up my game and produce a show at a professional level, but I am not afraid to try, and possibly fail, in public. This part - the raise the money part - is intrisic to the process. If I am too afraid to talk about it then I have no business stepping out on a stage to begin with.
I'm also hoping that more people claim the $25 (or above) incentive, because for that one (or above) I'm going to write custom micro short stories on the back of the posters based on the three- to five-word prompt provided by individual donors. Gotta say, I'm *seriously* looking forward to doing that! How do you write a good story for people you don't know? I've written micro shorts for people I know, but never for strangers. I want to meet the challenge.
Okay, I gotta go Roll The Fuck Out now. And also look at the email my Mom sent about the video. My god, that woman is the greatest source material in the history of the universe.
