24 Hours Remaining – Alice: Otherlands

Just 24 hours remaining in the Alice: Otherlands campaign. A few days ago it might have looked like we weren’t going to make it. We were all freaking out, right? This morning (in Shanghai), with 24 hours remaining, the outlook is MUCH MORE POSITIVE. At the current rate we’ll hit our funding target and then some. Yay!

Thing is, we’ve got to keep freaking! The most important thing you can do RIGHT NOW is spread the word. Tweet, post to Facebook and wave the flag.

Our directors are getting excited too. Troy wrote me this morning to say he’s been dreaming about exploring the mind of composer Richard Wagner while Tsui Hark is working on ideas for an adventure into the mind of Van Gogh. The success of this campaign is going to quickly enable these brilliant directors to take us on some very wild rides.

Meanwhile, my talks with various financiers, distribution platforms and other people who want to help continue to advance. This is shaping up to be something really special. And in another 24 hours we’ll know if we’ve done it or not…. what am I talking about? Failure is not an option! Let’s do this thing! 🙂

Today I’m going to give you with a couple of promotion images. If you’ve not done so already, swap out your Facebook cover image (banner) with either of the two provided here.

And if you’ve not yet done so: BACK THE PROJECT.

Alice Movie Update?

Over on SciFi Wire there’s a blurb about the Alice movie:

Gellar Passionate About Alice
Sarah Michelle Gellar told SCI FI Wire that she’s still passionate about developing Alice, a movie based on the computer game American McGee’s Alice, to which she owns the film rights. The game is based on Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

A lot of people are writing me, wanting to know what’s going on with the project. Truth is, I don’t know much more than the rest of you. And there are even a few details in this article that are news to me. The article makes it sound like Gellar now “owns” the Alice film rights – something I didn’t know. And there’s no mention the previous producer or writers. Has something big changed? Then again, the article describes “Alice” as a “1st-person-shooter” – so it might turn out that these are just misunderstandings.

In any case, I wish I could tell more – or do something more to help this thing move along. But Shanghai is a long way from Hollywood these days. And I’ve got “Grimm” to get finished with. Maybe we’ll get that made into a movie before Alice sees the light of day?

PS, It’s snowing in Shanghai today, so here’s a yeti to celebrate the occasion:
