Topic: Dragon's Lair: The Movie

Kind of odd to do a Kickstarter to fund just a pitch, but I do love Dragon's Lair and Don Bluth animation.

Kickstarter for a PITCH!? What the hell?

That said, I adore ANASTASIA and TITAN AE... but a pitch!? Why do they need half a million dollars for a pitch!? That seems incredibly high for the possibility of a movie.

Re: Dragon's Lair: The Movie

Hand-drawn animation is incredibly expensive, not to mention there's hardly any cheap overseas animators anymore.  1 minute of animation can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars so 550K for 10 minutes like they were asking was actually economical.

I backed this but it fell short.  However, Bluth and Goldman are starting a new campaign at IndieGoGo soon.

Re: Dragon's Lair: The Movie

Well, that makes sense. Okay then! Money for Indie Gogo it is.

Re: Dragon's Lair: The Movie

Seems to be doing pretty good so far - almost 100k in 24 hours.

Re: Dragon's Lair: The Movie

With 9 hours to go, almost 479k raised.  Their original goal of 550k doesn't seem so outlandish now.

I have to admit they added much better rewards this time; I love the animation cels.

Re: Dragon's Lair: The Movie

My final word on this - it actually hit 550k.  I'm astounded.  550k for a pitch.
