Has there been any discussion amongst the Polaris
crew about the new Space Command
show Doug Drexler et al
are putting together? Do you have any sense of competition with the new guys? Do you think you'll have a release first? You have a pretty good crew -- has there been any crossover from your production team to theirs?
I think that those are all "No," other than that we've watched the progress of the Kickstarter fundraising campaign with obvious interest and have discussed that a bit.
I wonder how many projects like Space Command
can be supported by Kickstarter before the huge interest shown starts to wear off. I don't think Kickstarter has come close to its total potential audience yet, but when it does there'll have to be an upper limit to the amount of money that can be raised for similar projects.
I'm a bit surprised, though, that your response indicates that you think Space Command
will beat you to release. Good-natured snark about Exeter
's delays aside, your team is pretty good and you've already got all your principal photography in the can (right?). Is the Space Command
team so good that you expect they'll still beat you to release?
I'm assuming here that your production and theirs are in the same "market" ... a SF web production; both with potential for becoming full-blown web series. There's certainly plenty of room in fandom for both. Do you think that both shows are likely to be compared to each other?
Maurice and Dennis, thanks for your responses!
