AudioComics Company’s Titanium Rain campaign continues on Kickstarter

Official Press Release

The AudioComics Company extends campaign for the audio production of “Titanium Rain” on Kickstarter

The AudioComics Company has announced that they will be extending their crowdfunding campaign for the forthcoming audio movie adaptation of Titanium Rain. The campaign, which was previously on the crowdfunding site IndieGoGo, will move to Kickstarter beginning September 19.

“We have heard from friends and from fans of the title wishing that they had had the opportunity to be a part of the funding experience, only to find that the timing of the campaign did not work for them. With many inquiries as to whether or not it would continue, and as our voice-over recording dates have been pushed to November, it simply made sense to keep it going a little while longer. It’s also gratifying to know that this much interest has been generated in the audio project; Titanium Rain has built a strong following, and we’re pleased to be able to offer this extension to them.

“However, it should be noted that the campaign will run for one additional month and one month only. The extension will end on October 23, and that’s it.” The AudioComics Company adds that pledge perks include limited edition Titanium Rain art prints, signed books from 01Publishing, and one-of-a-kind sketch cards and original art from TR creators Josh Finney and Kat Rocha, as well as complimentary compact discs and digital downloads from both the forthcoming audio edition of TR as well as downloads of previous AudioComics audio movies Starstruck and Horrorscopes (volume one).

Furthermore, AudioComics Company co-founder Lance Roger Axt plans to donate over 1,000 comic books from his personal collection to Operation Comix Relief, which sends care packages of comic books to our men and women fighting for our country overseas, if the initial goal of $1,250.00 is met.

Currently published by Archaia Entertainment, Titanium Rain is a sci-fi war epic set in the year 2031 where a civil war in China has escalated into a global conflict that has decimated entire nations and millions of innocent lives. And for many, like US Air Force pilot Alec Killian, survival in this new age means that man and machine must exist as one. The work will be adapted for audio by co-creators Josh Finney and Kat Rocha, and directed by AudioComics Company Co-Producer William Dufris.

In addition to adapting the work, both Finney and Rocha will attend the voice-over recording sessions for Part One of the audio trilogy in Portland, ME, which will be available on compact disc andpay-per-Mp3 download; Jonathan Sharp’s soundtrack for Titanium Rain will also be available as a separate Mp3 download, to be released concurrently with Part One of the TR audio production. CD’s and downloads will be available for pre-order beginning in mid-January, 2012.

The Titanium Rain audio campaign will go live on Kickstarter.com Monday, September 19, 2011.
