Happy New Year Everyone! Hope the holidays were filled with good cheer and wonderful blessings. Here’s the update so far. Kickstarter is a go for end of February or 1st week of March.

Just before the New Year I received a message from Mic O’Halloran–one of our group here–and he made a remark that took me by surprise, but was EXACTLY right. He felt that I was getting a case of the “McClellans.” Looking back over this last year since I begin talking about the Kickstarter that is certainly what it has become; each time we get close, some network or star or producer shows some interest and I put the brakes on and wait…and wait…and wait…and while there’s always the best of intentions and always real fans/champions at these places, the project never gets the final greenlight and we’re accomplishing nothing. Like McClellan on the Peninsula. Haha.

So, while we are still owed a response from that “superstar” who approached us (he’s opening a movie this Friday so I doubt that we’ll hear anytime soon), and ANOTHER network asked to read the scripts and claims they want to do “a pared down version and make it a series rather than a mini-series” (but they haven’t done anything more than that), well, I’ve stopped worrying about those leads.

I’m doing the Kickstarter. They can be part of that or not. But I’m not waiting around anymore at Yorktown. It’s on to Richmond for the TO APPOMATTOX team.

The Kickstarter campaign is looking amazing. The Reward structure we have built perfectly suits my desire to have our backers be able to participate in the production in a number of meaningful and REAL ways. My belief is that those who help fund this film (which will be the first two episodes done as a feature which we will either sell to a network or release in theaters), become my “studio.” So beyond the usual DVD’s and copies of the script, t-shirts, etc. there are some really cool opportunities to help in the filmmaking process.

The other good news is that our private financial partners (who have been with us through all the ups and downs) have agreed to MATCH EVERY DOLLAR we raise through the Kickstarter Campaign.

All that’s left now is for our stars and backers to approve the campaign we’ve built and their participation in it, then we launch!

More as I know it!

I had worn out my DVD set of Band of Brothers, so I had to wait for my new one to arrive before I could add screen captures from the special features on the DVD. There were bits of Richard, so I capped what I could and have uploaded the pictures to the gallery.

Richard On the Set of “The Evil Gene”

Date: Dec 8th 2013

Earlier today, Richard tweeted:

Beaten up in the make – up chair… just another day on the set of “The Evil Gene”. http://instagram.com/p/hq0IwAS8MW/

I tried to find more information on the project.  I found the official site: http://www.theevilgenemovie.com/. There’s also a Facebook page and a Twitter page, both of which can be found on the site.  There is no cast listing yet, so I can’t tell you what role Richard has in the film.

TVGuide.com’s 10 Best Supernatural Characters
Posted by: Kris
Date: Nov 27th 2013

On the TVGuide.com website, there is a new article detailing the ten best characters that have appeared on Supernatural. I am happy to say that Richard’s character of Gabriel snagged the #2 spot on the list. Below is what was said about our beloved Tickster/Archangel:

2. Gabriel (Richard Speight Jr.): The Trickster, Loki, Gabriel — I don’t care what you call this archangel, this prankster puts Jimmy Kimmel to shame. He’s also given us some ofSupernatural‘s most memorable episodes (“Mystery Spot,” “Changing Channels”). And though the way Gabriel mischievously antagonizes the brothers borders on sadism, he drops some serious knowledge along the way. Who can forget when he told a tearful Sam that his love for Dean is gonna be the death of him. Oh, and need I mention the costumes?!

Another Update On “To Appomattox”
Posted by: Kris
Date: Nov 10th 2013

An update regarding To Appomattox‘s Kickstarter campaign has been posted on the series’s official Facebook page:

Meanwhile, the Kickstarter campaign is almost finished. Of course, right as we come into the home stretch…TNT comes back around at us as does CBS. This time around, I will not put everything on hold, but will continue with the Kickstarter. Obviously, if either of them are for real this time, I’ll pull the plug on the Kickstarter. However, if it’s a bunch of “wait, wait, wait” I will launch the Kickstarter and so be it.
