a blog post comment from Jolly Blackburn to Ken (or Whit) Whitman. According to Jolly, this was also sent via email.
I simply cannot see any reason for Ken Whitman to not take Jolly up on this offer, which is a bit of a shame since IIRC similar offers have been made in the past. I'm sure some of the details might be different, but the broad strokes were there.
"Turn over the raw footage to Ben Dobyns/ZOE* so they can help edit it and salvage something for backers (if that offer is still on the table that is) as you promised OR 'fess up to backers that you lost the footage (some of us are starting to suspect that's actually what has happened).
Do that and I won't comment publicly about you ever again.
Just let the backers have the movie they paid for and which has already been filmed.
Surely that's fair.
I now there's no chance backers we'll see the soft bound books, posters, dvds, etc. That's an issue you'll still have to contend with and between you and them.
But having a 'best cut' possible of the three episodes filmed would be something. The backers, actors and crew who worked so hard to make this happened deserve that.
Do that - provide the raw footage and we're done. I'll not post about you online. Best part of this offer is it won't cost you a dime. Just do an upload or mail a thumb drive to Ben. (I'll even cover postage and the cost or the thumb drive).
* And if Ben can't work it into his schedule I'm sure we can find someone to help."
Wow......will be interesting to see how this shapes out. Couldn't be any worse than things are now for the hapless backers.
