The campaign surpassed its goal with 2 weeks to spare yesterday, thanks to a generous $10k contribution. It seems additional funds from now on will go towards the theatrical re-release.

Robert Woodhead has created a Kickstarter for a Blu-ray release of the three film Megazone 23 OVA series from 1985 through 1989 which has already made its goal within 24 hours. They have only been able to confirm the ability to send discs to the United States so far, but I have been regularly checking it every day or so in hopes that this somehow becomes available internationally. If it does, I will certainly throw in a pledge for it.

Here's the trailer for the first film in the series

Some good news regarding that Megazone 23 Kickstarter above. Apparently while the Kickstarter has come to an end there has been a deal done to licence the rights for international territories, so people in Canada and the EU can back it now through the AnimEigo site (although for some reason Italy is excepted)

"The Video Letter of Elina Lowensohn", in support of Hal Hartley's Where to Land.
With 10 days to go, this is unfortunately struggling to even make it past the 50% mark. Hope he gets to make this somehow, regardless.

The Kickstarter for Hal Hartley's Where to Land only has 4 days to go. Somehow it's ever so slowly increasing, but it still needs US$90,000 to pass the finish line. If you were thinking of backing this to help him make another feature film (probably his last independently financed one), now's the time! You know you want to. Well I want you to.:wink: I'd like to see this damn film of his get made.

Happy New Year everyone \:D/

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one anxiously seeing this getting closer to it's finish line. I just hope many people here will at least throw some dollars at him

Count me in as well for anxiously refreshing Hartley's Kickstarter - he's a little under $36k short at the moment with 49 hours to go. I assume he'll make it, if for no other reason, there's probably a way for one of Harley's better known regular collaborators to make up the difference if it gets down to that.

I got in right at the beginning and it's been heartening to see it get this far, although it would be nice if it didn't always come down to the wire on these.

I know, I think for every one he’s done it’s just scraped in. It’s now down to $18,000 with only 42hrs left. I decided to chip in a little extra, but the campaign really needs a couple more pledges from people with deeper pockets than I. It always seemed like this was the wrong time of year for this, but who knows.

Only $5k left to go for the next 40 hours, he’s got this one in the bag!

...and it's reached its goal with 36hrs to spare! Not bad considering it wasn't even at the half-way mark 9 days ago.

Missed this, but Deadline actually covered the campaign too. Good to see the trades giving these campaigns attention.

Potentially good news on this front! I received an e-mail yesterday from IndieCollect to the Kickstarter backers:
Well I never received that email, but against all hope got one overnight, their first update in almost 3 years! I’m sure it’s just badly worded, but it sounds like they’re blaming COVID-19 for the delay! :roll: Hopefully, while they’re self-isolating, they can work on improving that cover art.

You’ve haven’t heard from us of late because IndieCollect was capsized by the COVID virus. A sturdy little vessel, we’ve turned ourselves right side up, but here in New York City – the center of the storm — we are still being buffeted.

We do have good news to report.

Apparatus Collection Blu-ray includes Five Women Directors
We are proud that IndieCollect’s Blu-ray edition of the Apparatus Collection includes films by Brooke Dammkoelher, Susan Delson, Mary Hestand, Suzi-Lori Parks, and Christine Vachon. It is now being replicated and will be sent to Kickstarter backers once we are allowed to re-open the office.
