The "I Am Big Bird" Kickstarter campaign is officially over. There are a total of 1976 backers and $124,115 pledged. Congratulations to Copper Pot Pictures and special thanks to every fan who became a backer!
It's too bad the press Big Bird got this year was due to political jokes instead of the great new film that we are all looking forward to, "I Am Big Bird"! But at least Caroll got the last laugh: Big Bird and Sesame are still on, and Caroll and Big Bird were on SNL being lighthearted about it (and family friendly and funny at the same time, proving once again that this can be done)!
With less than a year to go, Copper Pot must be in the editing stage at this point I guess. Hopefully we will see a release date come Spring. Plus, those of us who donated to the film should get alerts on when our DVD's and Blu-Rays will come. I'm really getting excited about this film.
Also, I wonder which select theaters the film will be shown?
