Hi loyal friends!
We are happy to announce today that we are 38% of the way to our goal. But we only have 12 more days. So please get the word out so we can successfully make this film happen!
We are continuing to add new press coverage. He are some stories about Cities in the Sky from the past few days.

Geeky Nerfherder Kickstarter: Cities in the Sky: Science Fiction’s Forgotten Visionaries
Plus the Geeky Nerfherder was kind enough to give us a quote we love! “For sci-fi fans, this film could open up a whole new world!” Thank you, we agree!
Also we’re continuing to add great people to interview in Cities in the Sky. We recently added Rachel Talalay who made major waves back in the 90′s as one of the first female directors of a science fiction film with Tank Girl.
Yes, in case you’re wondering, we are lining up tons of people from other industries as well like academia and technology. We’ve just been focusing our announcements on the world of entertainment first and foremost. (Since we’re film people, that’s our specialty!) But you’ll be hearing about other types of people in the near future.
Thanks again. Spread the word! We only have 12 days. The pressure is on to get to our specified amount before February 5th.
We’ve included a chart below with our progress. Thanks in part to an amazing generous new backer yesterday, we are increasingly closer to our goal! Thanks to all our of backers so much for believing in this project and playing a role in getting it made.
We’re happy to say that our campaign has really been picking up some major momentum.
