Dennis Spielman here, the producer of Colorful Escapes.
I’m sad to report that we’ve failed our Kickstarter campaign for the first season. With funding being all or nothing, we got nothing and so we won’t be filming any more episodes this summer. I’m turning this failure into a positive. We’re going to back to the drawing board as we may try again in the fall or next year. Heide and I talked a few days ago about how unlikely it was looking that we would get funding for this first season. We discussed some ideas why we weren’t doing so well and what could we do to improve things.
For starters, Heide and I are going to work together more on Uncovering Oklahoma as practice and to build our brands and identities. Also with the more practice of working together, we’ll get better, and we’ll have an even better show when we try again.
I want to thank those that did back the project: Amy Young, Rick, Downtown OKC, Yenni Vance, and Kris Adair. Thank you for your support! It means so much to me that you believed in this project.
As I mentioned before, we would’ve only received funding if we reached our goal. If you would love to still support us, I’m on Patreon. Patreon is a platform for creatives to earn a living doing what they do and get valuable feedback from fans. I’m on there for my shows, Uncovering Oklahoma, Quarter Minutes, Yes! Science! and I will add Colorful Escapes to that umbrella as well.
For a cup of a coffee a month, you can help support all of those shows, as well as some new shows as we grow.
