WE DID IT!
Earlier this week the Millennium Exile project hit it’s very first goal and gained the very first member of the $100 “Hero” Tier.
This means so much, and it wouldn’t have been at all possible without all of YOU!
Hitting this goal allows me to not only hire another artist: IQ40 to take over for the Demo Reel art-work, but it also expedites the projects growth immeasurably.
Having Hary able to focus on the Art-book means that the stills for the Demo Reel can proceed at an amazing rate, for example…in 2 weeks, myself and IQ40 have been able to to cover almost 4 months of content for the reel!
Also, a HUGE thanks goes out to Maddison Taddeucci who donated a very generous amount in a one-off contribution to the project! :D
Now that the first Patreon goal has been reached, I’ll be organizing an online hangout (most likely through Discord). I’ll probably host this sometime in the first weekend of the month, but I’ll leave the particulars like day and time, flexible.
In the hangout, we will be all able to come together, meet new people, make new friends and have a chat.
We can talk about anything…favorite animes, artwork or games….we can even get into some super secret MillEx information regarding unreleased characters :p
Any and all questions are also encouraged.
The next goal is to hit the $500 a month mark….
Obviously this will only speed things up even more, however I am also looking to have the demo scored by a very BIG composer who has worked on some extremely prominent titles in the last few years. Music contributes so very, very much to the overall look and feel to any production - and having such a big name attached would speak volumes to studio executives come time to pitch.
I won’t name drop just yet…as nothings done until it’s done, and I’ll leave that news as a surprise should we hit the mark.
I really want to take this time to express my deepest and most heartfelt gratitude to you all. To all of you who have supported the project via Patreon, YOU GUYS ROCK!
I also want to thank all of you who like, comment, share and read all the posts across the social media platforms. There is value in support from more than just a dollar value and for that I am also very grateful.
Earlier this year I was invited to ABC radio station in Brisbane to talk about Anime in Western Culture. I mentioned it in a previous blog for as of Monday 8th of October , the segment went to air…
The final cut ended up being a little more about my personal history with Anime growing up, but you can listen to the entire recording here:
IQ40 and Hary are drawing like madmen on future artwork…pictured below is an upcoming shot for the Demo :)
(No more “Patreon Special” updates until it’s been completed…but you can expect a final tease before release to the Patrons.)
I’m also looking into more opportunities to get Millennium Exile infront of larger numbers for maximum exposure!
As always, I'd like to thank the following amazing Patrons from the bottom of my heart:
Master of Elements (Tier 1)
Dual Wielding (Tier 2)
Calculated & Dangerous (Tier 3)
Calculated & Dangerous (Tier 3)
