Delayed project (but that's OK)

https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/code-8-a-film-from-robbie-stephen-amell#/

I am a proud backer to this project that reached 860% of their fund raising goal. That's great and I understand this type of movie cannot be made in a few weeks. And I don't want to make myself sounds like complaining about this too much. But the park I signed up for -- Attend the Premiere - NYC is now postponed to December 2018 from November 2017.

It's kind of a good news for me because I just found one of my very good long-time friend invited me to her wedding in Nov 2017. So, I don't have to worry about the conflict. But we need to wait for another year...? Tears...

Besides, I'm a little concern that Sung may not be there with all the latest news, which is great for him -- he will be in FF9 (and possibly 10 as well?). I suppose you has to prioritize his job. The reason why I suspect this -- though we are talking about 1.5 years from now -- is that the "upgrade" deal, which allows us to put more in this project and get ourselves invited to the party with the casts and staffs did not mention Sung's name. I think many of us who put $450 for Attend the Premiere deal will be very disappointed if we don't get to see Sung in person.

I know. I sound like a kid. "Hey, the adult people promised that, but now, all I get is this?" There is probably no liability issue involved here. But I will be really sad if I cannot see him in person.

But anyway, I'll be closely monitoring their progress at their online journal.

**Looks like you need to be a backer to get the password. It starts as little as $5, which got just re-opened. Hurry!

さっちゃん、いつもいろいろありがとうございます!Code8の公開は早くても2018年の冬で、今のところ来年12月くらいにはメジャー都市のいくつかで試写会があって、私はそのNY会場でのやつに参加する予定です。一般劇場公開があるかどうかは、作品の出来次第で、配給会社がつくかどうかによるのだと思われます。この作品はスタジオ制作でなく、クラウドファンディングで資金集めして作られているので、割と規模は大きそうですが、「自主制作」のカテゴリーに入るのかもしれません。バッカーとして参加すれば、デジタルパッケージがもらえる特典もあるようでしたよ。でもあまりにも制作過程をオープンにしているので、作品が出来上がる前に、かなり内容とか出演者の様子がわかってしまうような気がして、それがいいことなのかどうか、微妙かもしれませんね。ファンとしては少しでも早く、様子が知りたいところではありますが・・・。
