George Oldziey has posted an update on the Wing Commander Orchestral Recording Volume 2. The numbers aren't looking good for the current Kickstarter, but it sounds like he's willing to keep fighting! Whatever happens, we'll be there for the ride.
Greetings WC music fans! We had a flurry of activity which took us JUST shy of the $17K mark this weekend. That's really incredible! But with $28K to go in just 6 days I have to admit that the challenge of meeting the goal at this point is pretty steep. That's not to say that something wonderful can't happen, and I'm definitely not giving up!
I did post that there would be a live stream event yesterday. But that ended up being a brainstorming meeting with my team about possible contingencies going forward. We all originally thought that going for the full amount needed in one campaign would work, just as it did for Volume 1. But, should this current campaign end without meeting our goal, we've decided to have a "tier" system of campaigns in which we have milestones instead of the "all or nothing" approach.
Again, we are NOT giving up! I'd be absolutely thrilled if we were able to make it happen right here and right now. I just wanted to let you know that there is indeed a plan in case it doesn't work out this time.
I've received some great advice from contributors about other ways of raising the needed funds to make this project happen. I encourage you all to send me your thoughts about how to make this a successful project!
Again, thank you all for your wonderful support. That's what makes it all worthwhile for me!
