BREAKING NEWS…Kickstarter campaign has been cancelled due to negotiations with a major studio (that isn’t named yet)
Here’s part of what Dr. Markos emailed about the news:
“I have bad news and good news. The bad news is that I and my fellow producers have decided to end the kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the film. The GOOD news is that the reason we decided to end it is that we are currently in negotiation with a major studio, and it seemed more prudent at this time to focus on issues of production.”
