The Kickstarter video looks great - I hope the project works out.

Nice to see the Ship Arriving Too Late... image on the side of the house behind Alex as he sits by the pool!! (3:00 mins into the video.)

$9 million to buy the house.

Shall we do a whip round?

I am a bit worried about the vault though.

The article mentions that the Vault has been (or will be?) "relocated."

Only the family could do something like this. I don't mind them doing a kickstarter for the movie to get it made faster but it sounds like the vault is being held hostage until the ransom is paid. Plus in the video it sounds like if they don't raise the money the archive will be mostly lost to time. Very weird way of handling new releases Not to mention the high priced garage sale they are having. WE ARE ONLY IN IT FOR THE MUSIC !

You guys remember when King Crimson had a kickstarter to raise money to digitize vault recordings to sell downloads of shows in flac on their website? Me Neither. They seem to be doing ok since they have over 300 shows for sale and adding new stuff all the time. Sorry to rant but this shit just gets old. Mad

What the fuck?

1. They stated years ago that everything in the vault had been digitized.

2. This whole thing reeks of mis-management. The constant need for capital to fund these projects is absurd, especially considering that Gail threw away so much money on political donations in the 4-5 years after Frank's death.

3. 2 million to finish the movie? I don't know anything about making films, can anyone here offer some insight?

4. I fear this is going to end up being a YCFOSA situation in regards to the downloads. "Coming! March of 2019!"
Wait! "Coming! April of 2021!"

You forgot to mention that previous brilliant crowd-funder project: Roxy By Proxy!

I need to track it down. I believe it was around the time of the first ZPZ tour where DZ/Travers stated that all of the audio had been digitized.

If they would have done a kickstarter for the Roxy movie, or By Proxy, like they are for this movie, they could have easily gotten a couple hundred bucks out of me.
