Live action Avatar: The Search movie planned! :D
« on: February 25, 2014, 08:47:56 PM »
I found this news on Twitter a short while ago:

Before anyone panics, M. Night Shyamalan ISN'T involved with this project at all! :D

Read the article for more info! Discuss! :D

^ It IS really cool!!!!! And, if you can donate, please do! Their deadline is March 14th,2014! There are perks (besides a really cool Avatar movie that's done RIGHT), such as being mentioned in the movie credits, a DVD of the movie (which is US $30, and I just bought one through PayPal),costumes, etc. ! :DDDD

I'm going to have very low expectations for this film, which is probably a good thing.

Yeah, my expectations aren't so high for this either. I'm not all that interested in another live action Avatar movie anymore.

True but considering this is a fan project, I have slightly larger hopes. fans sometimes do better with the source material than the big wigs. Although in a big chunk (as in a what I assume is going to be a feature length film) like this, it can be worrisome; stuff like this normally does better in 5-10 minute video's where you can tell they focused big on a smaller scale.

Being a fan project doesn't give me much hope either.

I'm sure it'll still be more appreciated than TLA. ^^'

That's what I'm saying. I'm not saying because it's done by fans it's going to be the best thing ever I'm just saying it's at least interesting they're trying something. But as I said, being a large project it can be a huge mess. I'd much rather see a decent choreography group use decent bending effects to do fight scenario's and stuff and have me be entertained for 3 and a half minutes.

"Thanks, HoneyBadger511! You raised the campaign total to: $5,205!"

Yes, it should, but they really need a LOT more funds that what they currently have. (They only have US$5,625 right now.) T_T

I've just emailed the man in charge of the movie to ask if refunds would be given in the event they cannot raise enough funds in time. I'm currently waiting for his response.

Please continue to spread the word about the movie and how they can help fund it. Also, ask any friends of yours that enjoy Avatar to help fund it & spread the word even further. There's less than 13 days to go until their deadline. Hopefully, they can get enough before/by then, and we won't need to get refunds!

UPDATE: I just received a reply from Alexander Herron who's in charge of this project. Here's his response:

"Hi Melanie,


  Thanks for reaching out to us! As of right now, we have enough to shoot the film. I (Alexander Herron) am going to be funding the rest of whatever we need to cover all of the expenses to make sure it happens. We've almost got the major positions of our crew filled and are close to finalizing our budgeting breakdown. I am very thankful for how well the campaign has been going so far.  Have no fear!

  Thank you so much for the continued support. If you keep spreading the word, that would be a big help, even if the fans do not end up donating. Let us know if you have any other questions.




Best,

Alexander Herron"

(I LOVE copy & paste; such a time saver! :D )

In my reply to this latest email, I mentioned how I started this thread here at TKC about it. :)

No idea how these words effected my life. :3

It all sounds pretty cool. I'm hoping it's a good attempt. Honestly, I don't feel good about viewing live action movie ideas anymore. Sometimes I wonder how the world would have received ATLA if TLA wasn't produced at all. :l

At first, I thought Oh God, not again. The I saw the magic words:

Can't wait, and am spreading the word.

I admire them for taking this on...
Not sure if "The Search" would b my number one choice, but it's still really neat to see.
I wish them the best! Sometimes fan movies can be pretty good, so I'll be crossing my fingers ... a little nervously! :3

Just less than 8 days to go 'til their fundraising is over. They have less than 1/3 of what they need, but the director/producer (Alexander Herron) is covering the rest of it, so don't worry! :)
