It's a great day for Wingnuts out there! George Oldziey's campaign to create a live reorchestration of the music from WC3, WC4 & Prophecy has met its minimum funding goal. This means that George can begin working the details to get this thing made! The project crossed $35,000 with about 500 backers early this morning, but there's still a little more time to go until the official end on Saturday morning. We're now in the very fortunate position of seeing what stretch goals will be possible. One way or another, the plan is to try to get as close to a 'normal' length album as possible, and every dollar above the minimum goal helps that along. I'll leave the rest to George, who's obviously ecstatic!
Wow!! I could barely sleep last night, wondering if I'd wake up and see that "$35" in front of the other three numbers. And YES!! There it was!!! Words cannot express the incredible elation and gratitude that I'm feeling! I CAN"T WAIT to start orchestrating more of the music!
A most heartfelt thank you to EVERYONE who pledged and help spread the word. EVERY dollar counts; from the $1 pledges all the way up to the pledges in the thousands of dollars! I promise to deliver the most amazing product I can, both in terms of the amount of music and the sonic quality!
What's more astounding is that we reached the target with 2 days to go in this Kickstarter campaign! Way to go everyone! Now I'd like you to give me MORE work to do so that you can get even more than the 25 minutes of music (15 with the orchestra, 10 with digital samples) this first target amount will cover. As I updated the other day, each thousand dollars above this target will yield 5 minutes of digital sampled produced orchestrations OR more time to produce more music with an orchestra. Either way I'd LOVE to yield a full CD's worth of newly arranged and produced WC music when all is said and done!
So let's see what we can do with the next 48 hours in this campaign!!
I love you all!
