22nd of July 2019 - Starting the main crowdfunding campaign:
It's been a long silence since the last update. We've been waiting for our orchestra of choice, the Prague Symphony Orchestra, to find a suitable recording session for us while we were gathering some more material, researching various options of promoting and sharing our project and coming up with ideas. Truth be told though, most of that time we've been busy with our personal lives.
What might be of interest is our meeting with Martin Rudovský, the director of the Prague Symphony Orchestra, which took place in April this year. Mr. Rudovský confirmed our estimates regarding the costs of one such performance (roughly 10.000 USD) and assured us he hadn't forgotten about us, just hadn't been able to find a suitable opportunity for us yet. He also promised he'd be on the lookout for windows in the orchestra's packed itinerary for us, and that this summer might yet present some opportunities.
With half the summer gone, we decided to set things into motion again. We will be starting new crowdfunding campaign shortly, and if we don't hear from the Prague Symphony Orchestra soon, we'll consider another professional orchestra to perform the piece. Hold tight.
17th of October 2017 - Nightmare Nights panel:
At this year's Dallas based event, Nightmare Nights, we will be hosting a panel. You will be able to find us at 1 PM on Saturday in the Mane Hall. We will be promoting the project, talking about its goals and achievements, and answering your questions. We are looking forward to seeing you all there. :)
17th of October 2017 - The current state of affairs:
In the first crowdfunding campaign you have donated amazing two thousand dollars. This money have been used to cover the expenses of a professional transcription into a playable score. For this we have hired renowned US based musician, Steve Aho (http://www.steveaho.com/), who has co-worked with such names as John Williams, Adele, Jason Mraz and many many others. We are communicating with Steve during the process and together finding ways to make the final score as close to the original composition as possible. The score should be completed in the first half of November.
There is also an animation in the making by the talented animator Bori. This animation will serve as an informative video for the second crowdfunding campaing, and it will be voiced by another talented artist, Wubcake. Another two talented artists who lent their skill to our cause are Wolfie Drawie, who kindly created a poster design for us, and Humberto Mena (aka Rainbow Dash), who made a wonderful design for our leaflets. We want to thank all these artists for their great work.
