Took me long enough, but the Romeo and Juliet project is completed. I’ll be spending the next few weeks getting them out the door for the Kickstarter supporters. I’m not sure if or how I’ll be getting copies to people who weren’t part of the Kickstarter project, but I have lots … Continue reading
It’s happy news here at Siano Heights, because the Kickstarter to fund the Romeo and Juliet project has succeeded! Not only did we meet our goal of $3500, we surpassed it, and reached the awe-inspiring heights of $5100!
I’ll try to post Progress Reports on this website. For now, my … Continue reading
A few days ago, I decided to play with the video materials I have for Romeo and Juliet. I’d just launched the Kickstarter, and had a strong initial response, so I figured I ought to show something as a kind of reward. So here is a very rough draft of the … Continue reading
