We have some bad news, but the community support and enthusiasm for this project is too big for one speed-bump to stop.
Despite the film’s historical importance, its artistic merit, and all of our hard work on the film, extras and campaign, Kickstarter has decided that Misty is too sexy for the site and is in the process of terminating the campaign. Your credit cards will not be charged.
IMPORTANT: If you would like to continue to support this project outside of Kickstarter, please e-mail your pledge level to Steven@VideoXPix.com as we’re unsure if we’ll be able to preserve your information from within Kickstarter itself.
Obviously, we’re unhappy about this turn of events. We can name 4 or 5 projects with with similar content which have been allowed to progress to completion. We are filing an appeal of their ruling (and any polite, professional e-mails you can sent to KS in our support emphasizing the artistic nature of this film and the integrity of the project would be GREATLY appreciated), but odds are that the project will NOT be re-listed.
We sill love Kickstarter, but clearly they feel uncomfortable working with us. So we’re hard at work figuring out how to re-launch this project on our own. The silver lining in this dark cloud? Since Kickstarter won’t be taking their percentage off the top, we’re going to try to work out how to turn that extra margin into even better rewards for you.
We will keep you posted when we have details! We’re going to come out of this stronger and better and we hope that you’ll be right there with us. This Misty release is going to be one for the history books!
With tremendous gratitude,
Steven, Ian, and the 435 Crew
