Back in July, Justin Zagri, the producer, writer and director of The Greater Good short fan film created an Indiegogo campaign to hopefully raise money to produce a second fan film, Severus Snape and the Marauders. The campaign, which had a goal to raise $39,000, unfortunately did not meet its goal. In fact, in only reached $14,000, which is so unfortunate, because The Greater Good is so good, and I just know that this new film could be just as good as, if not better than, its predecessor. Justin took some time to regroup, and now, a new Kickstarter campaign has been opened for donations (complete with some awesome perks)! Check out the preview for Severus Snape and the Marauders:
Doesn’t this movie look awesome? It is so true that “awesome things should exist in this world”, so why not donate to that cause? I am planning on getting the $75 reward, because with that donation comes these perks: a DVD with BOTH movies (this new one plus The Greater Good), a Hogwarts acceptance letter, my name on the Marauder’s Map (in the film credits), AND a copy of the script signed by the cast and crew!
Right now, with only one day into the campaign, Severus Snape and the Marauders has already raised over $8,000, and their goal is less than their Indiegogo goal was: only $18,000. This means that they have 31 more days to raise another $10,000, which I think is totally doable.
Actually, there are extended goals if the initial goal is reached (and if by some fluke it isn’t, the film won’t be made, because it is a fixed campaign). In fact, if this campaign raises $40,000 (their highest extended goal), they will shoot a SECOND short film, based on the short story J.K. Rowling wrote about James and Sirius being chased by a couple of Muggle police officers! I don’t know about you, but that sounds cool!
So what do you think? Do you want to see this film happen? Donate at Kickstarter now!
