After a month of fretting, nail-biting and non-stop promotion, it’s a relief to see that green stripe of success.
We did it! We raised just over $30,000 on Kickstarter. Thanks to everyone who helped make it happen. Whether you donated to the campaign, shared, posted, liked, tweeted, talked about it or blackmailed your loved ones into giving – we are very grateful for all your support. We couldn’t have done it without you.
5 down. 3 to go.
While the campaign was heating up, Tate was busy editing episode after episode. He’s already finished early cuts of the first 5 episodes and the series looks awesome. It’s a dramatic tale that’s heavy on story, peppered with action and keeps you wondering what’s going to happen next.

A week or so ago we released a brand, new Kickstarter reward – a pin-up calendar called FALLEN TORONTO. It’s 12 months of bleak but beautiful images of post-apocalyptic Toronto donated by Toronto artists Matt Borrett, Sandford and Terry Lau. It got some online buzz with hundreds of posted comments on various websites. Here’s a collection of some of our faves.
