Lights Out Saga – Funding Phase 2

Lights Out Saga

If you want to see the Lights Out Saga make it all the way to a screen near you, read on. The initial crowd funding effort was successful. The funds went toward screen writing and the creation of a trailer. Now they need funds to further develop the script, scout locations, cast the film, and start shooting.

You can help. The second phase of funding has begun. You can visit LightsOutSaga.com to get involved.

Latest News on The Lights Out Saga

The Lights Out Saga was able to raise over $30,000 with their initial crowd funding effort in spite of Indiegogo going back on their word.

This update was shared on The Lights Out Saga Facebook Page:

“As many of you know, a few weeks ago we began our Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for the film. This initial thirty-day campaign ends Sunday, and thanks to everyone’s support – the Lights Out Saga film project has raised over $30,000!! Although we will still conduct additional funding campaigns, unfortunately we’ll no longer be able to utilize Indiegogo for our continued efforts.

Before starting our campaign, Indiegogo informed us we could offer firearm and tactical accessories as gifts for donations without violating their no-weapons policy; as long as it did not consist of firearms, knives or accessories that were regulated by law. Shortly after beginning our campaign, Indiegogo changed their position and stated we could no longer offer items such as optics, firearm accessories or flashlights if they originated from tactical suppliers. Since the bulk of our sponsors and their contributions fell within these categories, the shift in requirements by Indiegogo severely limited our ability to offer many of the gifts provided by our corporate supporters. We feel that the unanticipated restrictions resulted in loss of potential donations.

The sudden turnaround of Indiegogo’s prior statements was surprising, and in spite of our protests, they’ve not been willing to honor their earlier assurances. Although we’re very disappointed, another platform will soon be available to continue our campaign. This decision has no bearing on anyone who has contributed! You will still receive the packages you were promised. In fact, your package may include some items we were not able to list with Indiegogo. (For example, those at the higher contribution levels will be receiving some items from our friends at Cold Steel.)

I certainly cannot express how grateful we all are for your support to date! We have been working hard behind the scenes and anticipate some big announcements soon. With that said, we are absolutely committed to working with companies that share our values. We will continue to partner with the right organizations, adjust our partnerships where appropriate, and keep you apprised of any changes”

I thought this part was particularly ridiculous: “Indiegogo changed their position and stated we could no longer offer items such as optics, firearm accessories or flashlights if they originated from tactical suppliers.” Let the absurdity of that wash over you for a minute.

The effort to bring the book to the screen continues in spite of the obstacles. In fact, it appears that the movie has picked up another high profile sponsor. Here is a hint…

The movie also has a new website that features pictures from the upcoming trailer and sponsor information. Be sure to check out newly updated LightsOutSaga.com.

Lights Out Saga Update

If you have been following JTT recently, you know that the Lights Out Saga is a film adaptation of the well known survival fiction book Lights Out by David Crawford (AKA Halffast). The film is being produced independently and funding is being secured via crowd funding on Indiegogo. The folks behind the Lights Out Saga are committed to getting this film funded so they have now introduced several new support packages including $25, $100, and $511 packages with some really cool perks.

They also released a behinds the scenes look at the trailer that they just shot for the film. The trailer shows some pretty slick action/shooting sequences and gives you a quick look at some of the gear that is involved (anyone spot the UW Gear Bandoleer?).

If you are a Facebook user, like the Lights Out Saga Facebook Page. If you want to get involved, check out the crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo.
