After months of preparation, we are delighted to announce that the Project Ommi Kickstarter campaign was a success! Spanning a month, the project raised over £25,000 | $32,000 in pledges from fans which will go towards the on-set special effects for this new sci-fi feature film. Here, we explore how the process became a reality, not only reaching an entire new fanbase, but becoming globally recognized by Kickstarter and given a highly prized featured project position on this crowd-funding platforms’ front page.
BUILDING THE WORLD
The campaign took significant planning to create an engaging strategy. We wanted to make sure the best possible perks were made available to our audience. The team created over 20 unique products and experiences – ranging from an augmented reality app, a custom graphic novel, featured artwork and even the chance to be in the film. We wanted to create high quality, original merchandise for our new and existing supporters.
Excitement grew within the production team as we anticipated the public’s reaction. From the outset the campaign received an influx of traction and following. Audiences all around the globe, from Sweden to Singapore, pledged to support Project Ommi. The team were overwhelmed by the messages of encouragement and support. It was clear that the themes, messages and visual style were connecting with sci-fi audiences.
