Well, we didn’t make it with the recent Kickstarter project unfortunately. I had an incredible response from all the wonderful supporters and I would like to thank everyone who pledge money and those that retweeted and shared the link on Facebook to the Kickstarter website.
Are we downhearted? No, not a bit. The one thing that has come from running the project is that there are a lot of dedicated fans and enthusiasts who would like to see more films made. There may not be enough to make them on a TV production budget scale, but perhaps in time that will change. For the moment, if I am able to generate enough expenses to make these programmes then they can continue.
So, perhaps the answer is to try another Kickstarter project – this time a short duration and for a smaller target cost, something achievable and then get on and make another episode. I am very keen to get filming on another episode as soon as possible.
Also, I have had mixed reactions about the shorter format Bald Explorers on Youtube.com. I would be interested in your thoughts and comments. The longer format takes more time and effort to produce and is a higher quality product, and the shorter version (if I made new ones) would be simpler and less informative, but possibly easier to digest. The question is what is the right way to go?
Thanks again and more updates and news soon.
