Thanks to a last minute stand by fans, the Kickstarter campaign for Alice: Otherlands film rights proved successful.
Spicy Horse netted $222,377 in funding, which put them over the original goal of $200,000.
“I’m more excited than a shark in a tornado,” said American McGee, CEO of Spicy Horse. “We’re already in meetings and I’m on the road next week to wrangle up more interest. Working with Alice and the Insane Children that love her is one of my favorite things in the world.”
With a successful campaign, Spicy Horse now gets to acquire the film rights for the American McGee’s Alice IP, and produces of a series of digital short films is set to begin.Successful funding of the Alice: Otherlands Kickstarter enables Spicy Horse to acquire the film rights to the American McGee’s Alice IP and start production on a series of digital short films.
According to Spicy Horse, having gone over the original financial goal, this “permits the creation of a series of animated short films, with larger animated series possibilities now available as well as development work on a feature film and potentially larger funding options for a larger-scale feature film in the future.”
Pre-production on the digital shorts will begin immediately, with a launch date of Dec. 2014 being the target.
