**COME TO 1ST PREVIEW SCREENING!**

Quote
Hi all,

A few backers have written to us with a very good idea which should be both a lot of fun and a very useful way to help reach our stretch goals.

For our last film we showed a very early ‘rough cut’ of the film at a cinema and many backers came along joined by several cast members from the film. Then afterwards we had a Q&A session on stage where the audience could discuss the film.

Creatively we found this not only highly enjoyable but also very useful to the film itself as some very useful points were made, some of which helped us in our final editing sessions before the film was finished. There was also a bar and afterwards many stayed behind to have a drink (or two) with ourselves and cast members, still talking about the film.

Therefore after several of you have written suggesting this again we have decided to this time offer the opportunity to all of you now. We will hold an early preview screening of ‘The Amiga Years! At a cinema in London. It will be a fantastic opportunity for you to see an early cut of the film before it’s completion in the company of the Directors and some of the film cast and then take part in a Q&A session and join us for a drink afterwards at the bar. Anyone present will also receive an exclusive 'one off' VIP press pack commemorating the event!

If you would like to be part of the film making process itself simply increase your pledge by £95. We have decided to not limit this for the time being as we want to see what the interest is like as obviously we can hire a bigger cinema if needed. You may buy more than one ticket, obviously slide your pledge up per number of tickets you may want.

At time of writing we are just £7.5k away from hitting £80k. Hitting it means we would be giving you 2.5 hours of content, so out of 1,800 backers if just 75 of you decided to come along to this wonderful ‘Amiga' event in London, get a unique press pack and be the first to see an early cut of the film along with cast members and ourselves we would hit that goal!

We hope to see you there!  

Best wishes,  

Ant & Nic

This is nail biting stuff, and with only 3 days to go, I am starting to feel worried its not going to make the 2.5 hour cut.

I just heard the devs have secured more items; such as Factor 5 huge wall mount collages and signed Signed Turrican Anthology CDs from Chris Hulsbeck.

The backers post is too long to re-post here, and has lots of pictures too, so here's a link.

hi all,

Well we did it, you have believed in us and this film and we will put all our efforts in to make the best possible film for you all, of that we assure you!



We are a little shattered this morning, as i'm sure some of you are...especially those who tracked the progress of the floppy beer-mat which we are very happy to say we also secured.

Please see below the final stretch goal progress chart, it has been an incredible last 72 hours and ticked off quite a few that will really make this project special. So please let's all rest up, and pat ourselves on the back because we've got work to do...well we have...you just get to watch!

final progress chart here

thank you!

best wishes,

ant & nic
