REMEMBER HOW WE TALKED ABOUT SETBACKS…
1. July 2013
Hello Friends, Fans, and Backers,
We want to begin by saying we, the Craig the Genie Crew, are extremely grateful for your awesome contributions to our project. You are each immensely responsible for our success. We recognize that, acknowledge it, and thank you.
We, like you, want Craig the Genie to be the best it can be. For us, that means maintaining a clear vision with a tight team of visionaries who are closely involved in our production process. This weekend, one of the members of our tight visionary team, Producer and Director of Photography Graham Robbins, badly broke his foot. While his foot will heal in time, he is not permitted to walk for eight weeks while he recovers. Graham’s job is a very important one in that he is unique in his ability to do it and it requires that he be on his feet twelve hours a day every day. Graham, we wish you a swift recovery.
As most of you may well know, Joey is off in two weeks to begin rehearsals for the stage play he and his fellow cast and crew recently funded on Kickstarter, The Last Days of Judas Escariot. Graham’s injury means we will lose our limited window with Joey needed to shoot before he departs for the summer. We are terribly sorry for this inconvenience but we will have to postpone the shooting of Craig the Genie until the fall. While there is always a risk of unforeseen circumstances, we want to do our best to reach out to you and make up for our need to reschedule.
What does this mean for you? The most important thing is that the prizes haven’t changed and will not in relatively any way. Everything will be delivered just as it was, however we will have to deliver many of the prizes a month or two later than we had hoped. We will post an update detailing the new timetable for when rewards will be released.
We hate to have such bad news on the heels of such great positive energy in getting funded. However, this is just the first of many anticipated setbacks that inevitably befall projects like these, and we look forward to doing everything we can to smoothly overcome them. So let us know what we can do for you. Our communication channels are open. We want you to know that we care about your contribution and we want to make the experience worth your while.
In the meantime, we’ll have some fresh content coming out for your enjoyment to tide you over, including the “My Shiny Teeth & Me” Video! We will be updating our timetable soon, which will dictate when the Craig the Genie rewards will be distributed.
If you have any questions or concerns please let us know and we’ll do our best to get back to you.
The CTG Crew
