I shot that on my phone, walking the line. It wasn't stable or smooth.

 

Hm...if you have a tripod and a rolling office chair available, you could put the tripod on the chair and wheel it past? (please let me know if suggestions are helpful or counterproductive)

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

 

Carpeted room. Have found nothing that rolls smoothly yet.

 

And this conversation probably belongs in PM.

If you need to have multiple addresses in the PM, the *best* solution is to change the address to the appropriate one when we send out shipping notifications. You know, the one where we announce shipping to begin on X date.

I assumed this was going to be the case, but just wanted to be sure. I will not ask you to make any manual edits. I can screw things up on my own enough, thank you very much, I don't need your computer systems helping me do that.

 

Thank you. 

 

ETA:  Can we change our address to something like "Hold"?
 

There will still be a ton of complaints about something.  Stuff like "Why now?  I am moving tomorrow!"

That's precisely why I asked my question about addresses in the pledge manager, though I won't complain - I'm just making contingency plans for where stuff will get shipped to.
 
 

We will not have Bones 3 product for sale until reward fulfillment is complete, whether or not it is all in hand in time to take to the show.


Prediction: At least one person will claim you had Bones III stuff for sale at those shows.

well I found this update very encouraging. 

or discouraging if my goal was to finish my Bones 2 KS before this arrived. 

realistically I could get it done only if it was delayed till next January (and KoD faced similar delays, it already has 1-3 month announced delay so I am actually expecting January) 

 

PS

my elder spawn watched this video and the core skills video and says your awesome.

So far nobody has ever accused of of this, when we have brought prototypes.

 

As far as i know, we are not even bringing prototypes, or production samples to view/handle.

 

There are 2 reasons for this.

 

first, space. We simply do not have space to display product that we are not trying to generate direct in-booth sales of. We have a hard cap on booth size, and a hard minimum on sales we must generate to be allowed to return. All square footage not dedicated towards profit is wasted.

 

second, confusion. people really hate it when they see a cool miniature and you tell them it's not for sale. in your sales booth. where you sell things. for sale.

Yeah we are in need of a finalized everything video. :)

 

I think the unstable/smooth look could work... think Blair Witch Project or Cloverfield.

Bryan,

 

Ginormous table, a wooden kiddie train set, with extra track if necessary, and rig a camera holder on top of one of the cars.

 

Could work . . .

This will perhaps tide you over while I wait for Ron

 

You're having a lot of fun making these, aren't you?

 

::D:

 

I'd make some wisecrack about idle hands, but we all know just how much Bryan and crew bust their humps to keep us neck-deep in toys.

 

Have a good weekend, Reaper.  (Virtual) beer and pizza all around! ::):

Don't you have some turn tables in the factory you could commandeer for the shoot?

Lock the camera in position, set it up for slow motion recording, and then start chucking all of the miniatures past it.  On playback they will be seen slowly pirouetting through the air in slow motion.  What? It could work.  I'd be willing to help throw bones all over the office.

After reading the comments on the KS I have one question...

 

Don't you wish it was possible to ban some users from participating in future Kickstarters?


Awesome Females? Yeah, I'll buy that... 

My works in progress. Not for the fainthearted.
