Title: Kickstarter for RiffTrax Live 2015: The CRAPPENING! We riff THE ROOM + more!

THE BASICS

Thanks to you, we have done two hugely successful Kickstarters over the past two years that funded us to be able to riff STARSHIP TROOPERS and GODZILLA (1998) + ANACONDA LIVE and simulcast to over 700 theaters across North America. These shows were a big hit, and this year we have the opportunity to perform FOUR RiffTrax Live shows with some of the most awesome bad movies ever. Are you ready? They are:

 – THE ROOM!

 – SHARKNADO 2!

 – MIAMI CONNECTION!

 – SANTA AND THE ICE CREAM BUNNY!

It's a superfecta of bad movies. We call it... THE CRAPPENING.

We did it!  We got the rights to ALL these cinematic masterpieces. Woohoo!!! And we can't wait to riff 'em live. To seal the deal, we'd love your help again. The cost to secure the theatrical rights and for the production itself is beyond doing this on our own, but it does work out if we get a little help from our fans.

So, Kickstarter community, please be a part of our MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000-style funny commentaries for THE CRAPPENING, broadcast LIVE to hundreds of movie screens to a massive audience in a series of four one-night events on May 6, July 9, October 1, and December 3rd, 2015!

I'm not sure - I'm just the messenger here. For stuff like that you're better off asking the social media and support folks. I'm just the video guy with an affection for the BB system. :)

Can we assume there will be a studio riff of Sharknado 2?

(I've backed and am EXTREMELY excited about Miami Connection!)

Sharknado 3 releases in July, so I'm guessing the Sharknado 2 riff will be the July 9 date. I also guess that SATICB will be the December show (duh). That leaves May 6 and October 1 for The Room and Miami Connection. I'm going with May 6 for The Room, since they already have that (mostly) written.

So...  Three things they've already done and no MP3 riff reward for Sharknado 2, the only new thing in the package.

Since I can't attend shows (always on Thursday, the one night a week I can't get off from work), I won't be dropping $75 this year.  Maybe they'll do something more inspired next year.  And not skimp on the MP3.

Only two have been done before, and one is half new (It's a different cut of Ice Cream Bunny with the Jack and the Beanstalk story instead of Thumbellina)

And the guys have been at work for a while rewriting The Room, so that will be largely new as well.

1. Just because we haven't announced Sharknado 2 as a reward doesn't mean it won't happen. It mainly means we haven't negotiated them yet. Anything can happen, really. Maybe even a VOD again?
2. THE ROOM and ICE CREAM BUNNY will both be completely new. They are rewriting THE ROOM basically from scratch, and ICE CREAM BUNNY is an alternate version with Jack & The Beanstalk instead of Thumbelina.
3. THE ROOM is on a Wednesday, not a Thursday.
4. "Three things they've already done"? When did the guys do SHARKNADO 2 or MIAMI CONNECTION?
5. All of these shows will have encores, so you'll probably have a few chances to attend.

That's great, but unless it's released as a studio riff, I'll never get to experience it (I'm in Australia)

   Speaking as an utterly happy fan, let me say, I'm utterly happy.  Rifftrax -all of you!-  have been and remain exceedingly nice to the fan base, as far as this fan is concerned.  From the newest moderator on the forum, to the big three guys, and everyone in between, thank you! You've been very nice to me, and obviously work hard to satisfy the fans.   I feel at home here, buy everything you have to sell, love all the live shows, and NO REGRETS!   :highfive:
Sincerely,
    Happy Fan

You guys probably SHOULD make it more obvious in the Kickstarter that it's the alternative cut of Ice Cream Bunny - You only learn that in the FAQ section now.

I usually keep my mouth shut but I have to say something. The "something more inspired" comment. As someone who busts his butt on this stuff (and that's a fraction of the effort that the rest of the team puts in) and how much thought and care goes into these shows (Miami Connection is all new as well, and you get the VOD for the show) I can tell you that this was a hell of an inspired lineup and there isn't anyone here that isn't incredibly excited about this lineup.

If it's not for you, that's one thing - but the attitude, man. As someone who has shed tears in the effort to do well by the fans...I got nothing...

Pasting the FAQ

Which version of Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny will you show?

This is the ALTERNATE print of ICB which includes "Jack and the Beanstalk" instead of "Thumbelina." It is an HD transfer of a film element we acquired - not only is it different from the one you've seen before, but it's also widescreen!

Which live events will be given as rewards?

Just to clarify, we have the guaranteed VOD rights for MIAMI CONNECTION and SANTA & THE ICE CREAM BUNNY.
Last updated: Thu, Feb 19 2015 3:05 PM CST

But you've already done THE ROOM and ICE CREAM BUNNY.

We will be rewriting both of these riffs for the Live show experience.

Don't know about contributing, though.  That'll have to wait and see if I have any money left after paying bills next month.

Don't care a lick for Sharknado 2, the movie was more self-aware than the first one (and the first one was pretty damn self-aware!) and went a touch far on the antics.  I mean, come-on! Tara Reed, a few hours after LOSING HER HAND, is perfectly okay and is able to inside of a few minutes construct a prosthetic with a circular saw?!

Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny?  Another meh. Some movies are painfully bad and this is one of them.  Enjoyed the first go-around, will go see this new version, but. Meh.  Doesn't blow my skirt up.

Miami Connection and The Room?!?!!?!?  Holly COW!!! That's what I'm talkin' about!  Tommy Wiseau becomes, sorta, cool and allows this!  Even the guys from Miami Connection have been pretty protective of their crappy little movie and are allowing this!  Now, you've got me in and these two I am excited for.

I hope that, like with this past week with the first Sharknado, down the road The Room and even Sharknado 2 can see VOD/DD . But I don't care, Miami Connection and The Room makes me THERE!

And the KS has only been up for a few hours and you're more than half way there! Awesome! Can't wait to see what stretch goals/rewards you come up with!

WHAT IF WE GET EXTRA MONEY, PAST OUR GOAL?

We raised past our goal in our last two Kickstarter projects and all of the money collected went towards getting the rights to the movies (plus getting the additional movie of ANACONDA), the production of the event itself, and in creating and fulfilling awesome rewards. It will be no different this time around.

Making these shows a reality will cost MUCH more than our base goal, and so if we raise more money, it will go towards movie acquisition costs, better production values, and towards all the great reward levels.

In that past the only stretch goals added has been an extra live show that was previously unannounced. I doubt they are going to add another one to that schedule.

Looks like a standard book case so a full size servo wouldn't fit....

I think the $45 pledge is great. For $45 you get:

$12.95 Miami Connection
$12.95 Ice Cream Bunny
$9.99 extra full length rifftrax of your choice
$3.99 Mp3 riff
$0.99 short
$0.99 short

=$41.86

So it's really just a $3.14 tip to rifftrax to help get the shows made.

(Plus, if you are in the US, you get early access to buy the tickets)

AND the value of all of the above increases if you get access to the HD versions of the files?

If studio versions of Sharknado 2 and/or The Room are announced, I'll change my mind.

I didn't mind not seeing the live shows last year.  I'd have paid even more for mp3's and shorts if I had to, with real blockbuster riffs becoming a thing of the past.   Live shows aren't really my thing, anyway.

Honestly, working the graveyard shift makes live shows problematic for me any day of the week.  Also, I find audience laughter grating after about 30 minutes, which is just a personal social anxiety thing.  No one's fault but mine.

"Non live" riffs are my preference, that's all.  If they change their mind about the MP3's though, I'm totally on board, even though one legitimate new blockbuster would have been cool.

5. All of these shows will have encores, so you'll probably have a few chances to attend.

That makes me extra happy. My mother-in-law/tyke-sitter won't sit on a work night, which for her is Wednesday - Saturday. Encores tend to be on Tuesdays, which work fine. :^)

This is nuts. They're going to get this thing funded by the time the day is over! They're only 2-grand to go!  What kind of stretch goals could they come up with to keep some order of momentum to provide more funding for a better show?  Last year the stretch goals was another movie, Anaconda, but here we've got FOUR movies planned out over the rest of the year!  Stretch goals for even more live shows?

I'd like to see a stretch goal of having Trace Beaulieu and other MST3K alumni join as guest riffers.

You can continue to donate to #TheCrappening - extra funds go towards cost of production + movie rights. Thinking of stretch goals too!

Aww, man.  They aren't offering a VIDEO thank you this time.  I really enjoyed watching those.

I have to admit, even though I have been thanked in the previous ones, I've never bothered watching them.

Call that the DEEPEST HURTING LEVEL. (Although I think MST3k alumni would be more fitting for next year's shows and the 10th anniversary.)

More realistically, what about chipping in for VODs of the other shows?

"There are 29 days left for this project, and in that time we'll be thinking of stretch goals. Feel free to submit your stretch goal ideas in the comments below"

That's from the kickstarter email they just sent.  They are taking suggestions for stretch goals.  Check your email.

I watched the ones last year, not this year though.  It's got to be a terrible day when they have to read all those names, so I'm glad for them deciding not to do it again.

Glad someone grabbed the slot for Bill's signed script, I was close to pulling the trigger when it went.  Sorry Mike, just not as tempted by his signed script...  So T-shirt level it is, phew, I would have had serious buyers remorse if I had given in faster...

That surprised me, too.  They had some sort of problem with the posters from the last kickstarter.  They are still signing those and getting those shipped.  Maybe that's why no posters this time?

I wonder how they will handle the nude scenes in The Room. Another balloon gorilla? Breast balloon? .... Why are there always balloons?

I know some people were concerned about bringing their kids to the Starship Troopers live riff because of the shower scene. If they plan on "censoring" the nudity is some way, it may be a good idea to let people know ahead of time.

As long as Disembaudio and his relatives aren't involved, I'll be happy.

Two people have dropped their VIP reservations.  One guy on kickstarter said he had to drop his, because of a family thing.  Don't know about the other.

So, there's two VIP spots open. Each spot has tickets for two, to attend the show in the first 3 rows, attend the rehearsal, and attend the VIP meet and greet. 

As someone who did the Son of VIP last year, I can tell you that's it's a total blast!  Got to hang out with the guys, received some goodies, and got VIP treatment in the show. I got two second row seats, dead-center in front of MK&B!  If you can afford it, now's your MST/Rifftrax dream-come-true opportunity  :highfive:

Someone has cancelled their Sharknado 2 VIP package reward.  So, there's one now available, if anyone is interested.  Again, it includes:
Meet and greet with the guys for you and a guest.

Last year, meet and greet included MKB, as well as Connor and Sean.  Of course, meeting the main guys was a thrill, but I was pleasantly surprised how nice were Connor and Sean.  They were very cool guys, and it was a treat to talk to them.  Not to mention, Connor saved my ass!  Thank you one more time, Connor. NEVER "DIS" Disembaudio!

Also, you get to attend the rehearsal of the show and have reserved seats in the first three rows for the live show.  As I said before, I had "Son of VIP seats," and was seated directly in front of MKB.  It was SO much fun!

You also get a Rifftrax goodie bag. And the bag DOES contain actual goodies! And, it's a cool "bag."

So, if you can swing it, this reward level is definitely worth the price!

Watching the total creep up so slowly, I considered upping my pledge, but none of the packages above $75 really appeal to me.  I don't think I would be able to watch a planning meeting online (work schedule), I absolutely, positively do NOT want my face up onscreen, and I can't afford to travel to a taping, oh, and work schedule.

I sure hope people start contributing soon.  I mean, if we reach last year's total, we get all the stretch extras.  And the Sharknado 2 VOD should have massive appeal.  (I really want the OHAI shirt...)

I think you can just up your donation, without having to choose a different/higher reward package.  Might want to ask Rifftrax, via Kickstarter (use the "contact me" button).  I upped mine a bunch of times, last time, and my reward level stayed the same. So, if you want to add another 5 or 20 bucks, or even a buck, you should be able to do so, without having to go all the way up to another level. Just click on "manage" donation, and enter the new amount.  It will then ask you to select a reward.  Just select the reward you already chose.

I suspect the donations will increase as we get closer to the end of the drive.  That's what happened last time and the time before.  I also am REALLY wanting that Sharknado VOD.  Also want the t-shirt. And I'll even dig in to Harry Potter, if we hit that stretch goal.  After all, watching the Ninja Turtles proved to me that I can have a lot of fun, watching something I don't like, as long as the riff is good.

Guys-n-gals, we're only 40k from Potter.   I make this vow to you all (as if you care, haha!):  If we reach the Potter Goal, I will purchase and watch EVERY Rifftrax of the Potter franchise.  I've deliberately boycotted ALL of those riffs.  But, as a team player, and I AM a team player, I'll sacrifice my sanity, if we make this goal!

Seriously though, wouldn't it be awesome if we could set up like a streaming site and just have a massive get together and watch them all? Even if it's just a bunch of webcam shots of all of us in front of our TVs.

Or maybe set up a chat room and have a specific time to start and just watch them all and chat together?

I *might* up my pledge towards the end of the campaign depending on how it's looking, but I'm not interested in any of the stretch goals between the Room Mp3 and the Sharknado 2 VOD, and I doubt they will get there.

I'm hoping people will decide they want the Sharknado2 VOD, and up their pledge..  It seems like it is the best selling point for the $75 donation, since that, theoretically, is the only way to get it. 

(The shirt and MP3's are what convinced me, but I'm an unusual case, as I don't care much for VOD's in general.)

Yeah it bugs me when it appears like the people running the KS don't seem to be as excited about it as backers like us. One the recent projects I backed it took the project runner 2 weeks to acknowledge that it had concluded successfully! I know you could be busy, but come on! Compare it to something like Blood Rage (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/coolminiornot/blood-rage) and there are staff in the comments as excited as the backers joking and signing along with them and they post within a few minutes of a stretch goal getting met. I know not every project runs the same way, but it really effects the excitement level of the obsessives (like us!)

Well I've pitched in all I can afford..
Re-analyzing those stretch goals, everything above $200,000 may have been unattainable :-\
I hope I'm wrong but the main reason I bumped mine to $75 ($82 actually) was for the OH HAI t-shirt and if we wind up not getting them because that $225,000 wasn't reached, I'll think twice about pledging in the future.
I never get to the Live shows anyway but try to support the cause for the goodies :-[

I hope a lot of people are thinking the way you do.   About 2000 more people contributed last year than have this year so far.  Hopefully, this year will get as many pledges.  I still think it's do-able, given last year's take, but I'm a positive guy.  :)

2 Shorts ($1 each)
Any MP3 ($3.99)

Hmm. I was missreading one of the MP3s as free VOD of your choice.

Also there are two levels that give a free MP3 of your choice, but it looks like they don't combine like I thought they did?

 There is the "SHORTS COLLECTION" ($10) and there is the "SHORTS COLLECTION PLUS ONE" ($15) all the higher tiers only say you get the "SHORTS COLLECTION" If you were to get that extra MP3 it would have to say "SHORTS COLLECTION PLUS ONE". That maybe an oversight on their part??

I've been posting updates trying to convince people to up their bids to at least $75 (including a promise to up mine to $250 if we hit the Sharknado 2 VOD stretch goal), but one thing I'd like to remind people... We were $6,000 away from the $250k stretch goal last year with less than a day to go... they ended up over $15k OVER the stretch.  The last couple days usually see a BIG upswing.  But gotta keep advertising on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, sign language, smoke signal, going outside and screaming, whatever, get out and do it!!!!!

I don't think we'll get to the OHAI shirt level, I was at $75 from the start so no big deal to me (although I really want it), but a let down for those that raised their pledge for the 2nd shirt.

Harry Potter might happen last minute.

I see they added a bunch more scripts from all the shows at the $1025 level, I seem to have gotten over my temptation to pony up for one of those....

This is how I read it:

(https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1414922/RifftraxKickstart.png)

I only went up to the $75 since that's the one I was interested in (if Sharknado is reached)

Yeah, that's how I now read it too.

**Updated to include new Man V Monster stretch goal.

If the NatGeo riff gets unlocked overnight there's a chance for the OHAI shirt...

I've only seen a few of the Twilight ones, but all of the HPs, and would agree the Twilight ones are more funny, but that's mostly due to the movies being so laughable where I like the HP movies and think they are good.

Ah, I see.  well. it's still over 250k!  Yahoo!   I guess some people reduced their contribution at the last minute, thinking they didn't need to donate as much, since the final goal was hit.  Honestly, I thought about doing that, myself. But, don't tell anyone. ;)

I'm too old to play the waiting game.  The older you get, the faster time goes.  So, I'm just going to relax, and worry about paying off my credit card debt. 

Wait, you can't relax and worry about debt at the same time.

Happy see to that the project was funded enough to allow for all of the additional rewards to be added.  The NatGeo Riff will certainly be a treat to have! Great job, guys! And I look forward to a great year of RT:Live! events! The Room alone should be well worth it. Bringing my spoons!

Really glad to see it make all the goals. But, here's a question to ponder - This Kickstarter seemed to be much more down to the wire than the previous ones. Do you think the guys have 'gone to the well' too many times now with Kickstarter, so to speak?

Maybe I'm wrong, but I'm thinking that it was because:
  • It didn't seem like these live shows were really dependent on the funding.
  • The stretch goals didn't include "new live riff that we can only afford to do if you meet the goal". The new riff goals seemed like things they would probably do anyway.
  • Many of the stretch goals went to all backers, even if they only pledged a dollar. (probably not a biggie)

There wasn't a huge difference.

This kickstarter earned $250,303, just meeting the $250,000 stretch goal.
The 2014 kickstarter earned $265,011, just meeting its $250,000 stretch goal.
The 2013 kickstarter earned $264,860 and had no stretch goals.

It earned about $15,000 less, but kickstarter isn't the big deal it used to be either. Yeah, they probably lost a few donations from people who figure that Rifftrax doesn't need kickstarter, but I wouldn't be surprised if 2016 goes like this one..

I don't know whether to congratulate or shake my head at Miku pledging almost $3k. I'll split the difference.

Guys, that's the 10th anniversary of Rifftrax. If there's another Kickstarter, it'll probably be a big one.

I don't know.  But, consider this- they made their goal in 8 hours.

Kidflash-  Last year, I ignored a chance to see Miku in Atlanta.  I was sure she would play in Nashville.  she didn't.  Then I saw a video of her first ever song in English, which was played at the show I blew off seeing.  I was fan-crushed.  I swore not to miss a once in a lifetime chance, ever again.  So, that's why the big donation.  I don't want to relieve the experience of missing rare things that I love.  I may get buyer's remorse, but I'll have no regrets!  :)

Edited to add:  I also missed seeing Edgar Froese and George Harrison because of the same logic: Oh, don't worry about it, you can always see them later.   Well, people retire, quit, break up, etc.  One day, there won't be a Rifftrax.  I don't want to look back and think F*ck!  I should have gotten the VIP treatment when I had the chance.

Quote from: Homer Simpson
You're right, Marge. Just like the time I could have met Mr. T at the mall. The entire day, I kept saying, "I'll go a little later, I'll go a little later..." And when I got there, they told me he just left. And when I asked the mall guy if he'll ever come back again, he said he didn't know. Well, I'm never going to let something like that happen again!

From a kickstarter email:
O Where Art Thou, OHAI Shirt?
Due to a change we made at the last minute, most of the OHAI RiffTrax Bonus shirts will not be arriving in time for tonight's show. We're deeply sorry about that! Our original intention was to get the shirts to you ahead of THE ROOM Live so you could represent at your participating theater, but we also wanted to ensure the best quality possible for the shirt itself - hence the change and the delay. We hope you'll accept our apologies, and please do bombard us with photos on Twitter and Facebook of your "unboxing" and wearing it when it does finally arrive."


Fair enough.  I'll wear it at Sharknado2.  :highfive:
The Ice Cream Bunny laughs are in.  Pretty funny!

Got a copy of Sharknado 2, so  I can start working on my joke.  I did Anaconda last year.  It worked, but- had I been familiar with the movie, I would have had more context (and therefore, more options). Seems context is important in making a joke.   :o
