The Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter ran between Jul 16 2013 – Aug 5 2013 and raised over 222kUSD. Project funds went towards The Pitch as described on the Kickstarter page:
With the acquisition of the film rights to the “Alice” property, we will begin work on animated short films inspired by the “Alice: Otherlands” concept. Our long term goal will be the development and production of a feature length film version of Alice’s story.
If this campaign is successful you will receive, at a minimum, an animated adventure into Otherlands. Beyond that, the success of this campaign will bring us one step closer to seeing Alice on the big screen.
A 12-month option on the film rights was acquired for 100kUSD. Remaining funds went towards the creation and shipping of physical rewards to over 3000 backers around the world, animation production expenses, overhead, development costs, and legal fees. For a detailed breakdown of income and expenses you can check out this graphic.
On October 31st, 2015 links were provided to all the finished digital content from the project. And by March 14, 2016 all of the physical rewards were sent out to backers.
Otherlands hit all goals and delivered all promised content and physical rewards.
In the years since the Otherlands download links were originally posted, they’ve grown old and died. That’s partly because hosting large content for fast download isn’t free. I’d hoped that after some years the content might end up spread across the Internet such that I’d no longer have to personally pay for hosting it. But judging by the daily requests I receive for download links it seems a single point for storing these files is still needed.
