Totally agree, Diah. :heart:

Jemaine at the NZ Film awards talking about What We Do in the Shadows amongst other projects and he mentions that he hopes to tour with Bret next year (from about 28 minutes in) :)

Jemaine & Taika have launched a Kickstarter campaign to get WWDITS to screen in 70 US cities! You can pledge here and get cool rewards if it gets funded. 8)

Of course his face gets him places ;)

The Kickstarter campaign now has an additional reward of a special online screening. 8) $400,000 is an ambitious target but hopefully it will all work out.

I think Taika's Kickstarter for BOY was $90k so $400k seems like quite a lot in comparison but I guess that's how much they need to get a pretty widespread release. Kickstarter campaigns tend to start quite slow and then there's a mad rush towards the end to reach the goal so there's still time to do that. Looks like Jemaine & Taika might have an online Q&A in the meantime and their WWDITS promotion in the US will tie in with this campaign.

Yep, I've pledged. Wish I could pledge for the more personal & expensive rewards but alas, I can't justify doing that.

I pledged because I've been desperately waiting. I'm so disappointed. I'm close enough to fly to LA fairly inexpensively, so I may consider that. :|

I haven't pledged yet, but I'm definitely going to. I want to pledge one of the ridiculously bigger rewards though. I'm a little hesitant about doing it only because I hate, hate, hate flying. Although seeing the Kickstarter's slow start is making me nervous. I really want to bring all of my friends to see this film with me in a city close by. I have my fingers crossed that everything works out!

Ooh, you should go for it if you want a big reward, deeds. It'll be worth the flights! I see the campaign has got a little boost after Jemaine posted it on the FOTC Facebook page and it looks likely to reach 10% of its target soon. 8) Fingers crossed it works out for both of you so you'll hopefully have the option of seeing it at a local theatre.

There have been a couple of updates today. First of all, one of the t-shirt designs have come in

And there will be an online Q&A with Jemaine & Taika after the online screening. :)

There have been more Kickstarter updates and new rewards added. The amount pledged so far is nearly hitting the halfway mark so I hope there'll be a big push to reach the target in the next 11 days! :pray:

It's great that there's so much choice but I also can't make up my mind about which reward to go for. :hrm:
