Of course that project is coming up on two years late (December 2014 was the "estimated delivery" date), but Ken "Whit" Whitman has the end credits done.....kind of. For the low, low price of only $10 you can get your name added as a backer.
This is quite the bargain because during the actual fundraising campaign, you had to pledge at least $40 to get your name in the credits. 486 people pledged less than $40, so Ken "Whit" Whitman has a potential take of $4,860. Of course so much of the fundraising for this particular project was done off-books from the official Kickstarter campaign and this little attempt at an add-on is also off-book as Ken "Whit" Whitman is using a Square Store for this additional "funding" source.
We highly suspect that anybody who wants to send Ken "Whit" Whitman $10 can have their name added to the movie that may never see the light of day, no need to be part of the 486 allegedly-eligible backers from 2014....
First let me say that I am sorry it has taken so long to get Spinward Traveller off the ground, I am work with Far Future Enterprises to get this project into your hands as soon as possible.
As you know we have released the end credits with all the backers names that paid $40 or more, more than a few of you have asked if you can get your name in the credits.
So, for an additional $10 we would be happy to include you name, in the credits.
These additional money will be used to help me spend more time editing, and speeding up the edit process. With a little luck and tenacity, I play to have a finished product by the end of this year. Look for an announcement from FFE in the next few months.
Thank you for being understanding. You can log on to my new store at Whit Studios. (weblink removed, -Editor) The credit purchase in on the main page.
Thank you for your time,
After the initial shock of a) Ken "Whit" Whitman asking for more money and b) Ken "Whit" Whitman screwing over the 107 backers who pledged at the "NAME CREDIT PACKAGE" specifically to get their name in the credits, our first real question was, "Does Far Future Enterprises know about this?" Of course this leads to more questions. What is their role? What do they stand to gain from this?
Who knows......we, don't!
TDH Talent Unlimited. While it is great news, at least for him, that he is getting some work, we can't help but wonder where is his expertise stemming from? He wrote/acted in a season and a half of Brother's Barbarian and directed three Kickstarter projects that are unfulfilled. He's also done some one-off extra work. One could easily argue he's never really gone "back" to anything......at least not enough to be an expert.
If TDH Talent Unlimited is happy, and their clients/actors are happy, it probably doesn't matter......
