In less than 39 hours as of this writing, we will be at the end of the VENDETTA GAMES Indiegogo campaign. First of all, I would like to thank everyone and anyone who contributed to, shared, or liked the campaign and this film project in particular. Even though we get to keep what we make with Indiegogo through flexible funding in contrast to Kickstarter, it’s obvious that we did not make our initial minimum goal. There’s a lot of factors behind that, but I’m not here to point fingers. A lot of people don’t realize how much work it takes to promote a campaign and to get others to believe in it enough to contribute. I’d say this whole summer has been a challenge in that respect.
In spite of where we are financially with the film, my team and I will continue to push production forward this coming fall and actively seek potential investors, sponsors, and donors. We may have to nickel and dime our way through this efforts as I have done in the past. Except this time, I have a lot more experience to know our limitations and how best to find creative solutions to make sure every penny goes up on the screen. It won’t be fun going in that direction; however, it’s moments like these that force you to become a natural leader when all the odds are stacked against you.
As we get near the end, I encourage anyone at this point to watch our pitch video, followed by the opening scene for the film:

We can now reveal the work-in-progress cover art for the upcoming Vendetta Games prequel comic book written by Andre´ Joseph with illustrations by Brian Bicknell!
