Une Bobine in the Wild

 We received our first photo from a Kickstarter backer of Une Bobine "In the Wild", so we wanted to share! The caption of the photo is "I think it might be love..." Look closely at the other desk accessory.

Kickstarter Tip - Amazon Payments

For all of you Kickstarter project creators, here is another Kickstarter tip. Be prepared for failed credit card payments. While it is too early to tell where it will end, here are some statistics on the 4th day after funding:

Credit card failures: 315 - 7% of total backers

Dollar amount of failures: $6323 - 3% of total funding

While this doesn't have a huge effect on Une Bobine because we were well past the funding goal, if your project barely meets the goal, it is something you may need to plan for. Below are my suggestions:

  1. Have this Amazon link handy. While it isn't the most helpful, it is at least a start to inform your backers what the options are.
  2. Have an alternate method of payment setup. This can be paypal, shopify.com, go.magento.com or something else. Whatever you do, make sure to provide your backers with alternate methods of payment. There are some backers who will not be able to resolve the issues with Amazon.
  3. Payments will be attempted for 7 days after funding. So make sure you have a plan in place prior to that.

It All Started With Hand-Drawn Stick Figures...

If you haven't seen already, our Kickstarter project video is a bit different than most. About 600 frames of hand-drawn stick figures comprises the bulk of our video. We had so much fun with it, that several reward levels include prints from the video.

In preparation for the rewards, we have posted all the frames from the main video, additional frames from the trailers, the original concept frames, and a few frames that were never used of Bob crashing his car.

View them at Photo Bucket

When we send out the survey from Kickstarter, anyone with a print in their reward level will have a choice of any video frame. The image below shows you the information we'll need to make sure you get the correct print. We will ask you for the frame number as shown by the highlighted text in the image below.

Final Days

 We're in the last week and we've had a lot going on these last few days.

* I had the pleasure of spending a few hours with Scott Webster of AndroidGuys.com yesterday afternoon at our office. He's running a great blog, definitely check them out for your Android news.

* We have had a lot of late nights this week reviewing the mold drawings from our factory along with several late-night phone calls from the other side of the world. Things are progressing smoothly.

* The steel for the molds is ready and waiting. As soon as we finalize the mold drawings, the factory will begin cutting the steel for the molds.

* Since I love iMovie on my iPad, I posted another slightly over-the-top video, just for fun.. Sort of a compilation/countdown.
