I met Vincent Regan in the ERT, Beverley last year after the showing of the York documentary “Folie a Deux” by Kim Hopkins, he told me about his ambitious plans for a film adaptation of Macbeth.
It sounded like a fantastic project especially as it was to feature Sean Bean. I wondered if he could pull it off, I didn’t know then he was going to use crowd funding via KickStarter.
Their target was for $250,000 for pre-production and for helping to secure pre-sales. The total budget will I believe be around $4.5m.
WELL THEY DID IT! – THEY RAISED $255,564
The package and presentation was exemplary and obviously involved a massive input from the impressive cast and technical production support and marketing crew.
Take a look at it the pitch video here:
And the actual KickStarter campaign page here:
As a modest backer and twitter supporter, I’m looking forward to seeing the final film.
WELL DONE TO THE WHOLE TEAM. – An inspiration!
