AVGN Movie – IndieGoGo donations – Thank You

James / November 11th, 2011

Thanks everyone for donating so much to our IndieGoGo page to get the AVGN Movie going. Behind the scenes, my team and I have been working very hard to get everything ready for the shoot. The filming could take place any time between January and May 2012. It’s time to make a damn movie.

The projected total budget is uncertain at the time. We are in the process of hiring a line producer to help with that. We are also talking with special effects artists about costs. For now, I think we have more than enough to get started, so thank you again for exceeding our IndieGoGo goal.

    Great news, James!
    So happy to hear things are going well, wish I could be in USA to participate as an extra or something, but at least I could help a little bit via PayPal.
    I have no idea how much work you boys have ahead, but we all know you will do great!
    Hope it can be finished by next year πŸ˜‰

    I’ll have to admit that I’m a bit sad that I’ve donated via PayPal before you’ve had that IndieGoGo thing, but nevertheless I’m totaly happy that we will get our movie. πŸ™‚

    So if I donate $30, I get an autographed photo? Still?

    I may need to do that. Once my basement is finished and I get my Nintendo area set up, that’d be a great thing to have.

    I literally don’t have enough money to get gas. I wish I could donate. I just started working again so if I get a little extra I will see what I can do. I can’t wait to see your movie. It’s gonna be so epic.

    James, great news on the donations! You’re an inspiration to fellow filmmakers!

    Thought I’d let you know though that some people haven’t received the special message. I haven’t got it and I read in the comments a bunch of people on indiegogo haven’t got it.

    dont forget the elements of German Expressionism in your film!!!!

    November 11, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    This video is almost as good as a nerd video and it will help me get through the cravings until the next one.

    Congratulations on getting past your goal and we are glad we can help make your dream come true.

    goddamn! good for you James. Make your fans proud. I am so happy for you. Do this film for all the aspiring creative minds that follow you but just couldn’t quite get their dreams off the ground ( I being one of them). You deserve it, stuck with it, and worked your ass off for it. Being a film maker I know how much effort goes into producing a piece of work. Its hard man. Thank you for being such an inspiration. I tried to do it but just didn’t have the situation or the resources. Your fans have spoken. put their money where your mouth is. good luck brother……

  • November 11, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    That is amazing James, simply amazing

    I didn’t donate but to everyone that did thank you for helping James with this, he has given us alot of free entertainment over the years and you guys really have shown how much he means to us all.

    I was going to donate but I bought your dvd instead…hope that still helps tho.

  • Mariusz69

    didnt donate much but did what i can sir cant wait

  • November 11, 2011 at 11:54 pm

    Awesome James. Just PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make sure you hire a good Cinematographer! 90% of production value comes from your cinematography and from art production/set design. So PLEASE make sure you get those things right! Don’t just buy lights and a camera. Hire someone who is experienced and can give you a pro look!

    And shoot on the RED!!! You have a high enough budget to afford it! Don’t mess around with DSLR nonsense, please! If you don’t shoot on RED, then you’re wasting your time.

    Well there’s no ‘moral support’ button on that page.

    Keep on doing what you do, James.

    That’s funny, I just borrowed gas money from my ma tonight.

    Amount delinquent 81$ resulting in a lean on any property or… good thing it’s only 81$, what are they gonna take my Night of the Living Dead Book?

  • Poketroid

    November 12, 2011 at 8:57 am

    I wish I could donate James. I’m 17, but I have no credit card, nor cash right now. But if I did, I would have sent you 100 bucks, hey it’s something. I hope the movie is made, and good luck. I hope it’s not, Ugh well i’ll be 18 by the time is released. Haha, well as a proud subscriber and fan, I say good luck, and you deserve the support man! I give 100 stars out of 5!

    I know you’re very stressed with everything right now. Hey, the fans are here!

    Keep up the good work!

  • Rhoey

    November 12, 2011 at 9:28 am

    I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the amount that fans donated, I was simply stunned. We’ll do all we can to support this project, and like someone else wrote in the comments, we’re 100% behind you!
    I’m really looking forward to the movie, as well as the autographed photo. πŸ˜‰

    November 12, 2011 at 7:02 pm

    Oh f*ck! LOL
    Looks like we’ll be getting this awesome AVGN movie after all. Wow…

    If I wasn’t in crippling debt, and was able to hold down a job at all, I’d give the biggest donation in there and then travel to you to be part of the movie.

    This is probably going to be the most amazing online low-budget movie that I’ll ever see. I can hardly wait! πŸ™‚

  • November 12, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    The image quality, the editing, the acting, the montage, every little clip you do seems to get better and better (and you started with a bar quite high!). Thanks James, Cinemassacre rules!

  • King_Chile

    November 12, 2011 at 9:38 pm

    Never actually donated on Indiegogo before and I was wondering: if I was going to donate, let’s say $50 this month and then $50 again later, does it stack somehow or should I wait and just donate as much as I can at once?

  • Lodmot

    November 12, 2011 at 11:27 pm

    Damn dude, just TODAY the amount went from like 106K to 127K!
    I’d love to see James’ face if it reaches like 300K! o;
    I really hope it does, and I’ll likely be donating again sometime, now that I’ve got my new MasterCard activated. By the way, did you ever get your MasterCard yet James? O:

  • The poet

    November 13, 2011 at 5:27 am

    I have a question James. There is many people who donated via paypal before you got IndieGoGo. Are we going to get at least a signed photo? I know some people who donated over 50 dollars via paypal and I think it’s a little unfair that they don’t get anything.

  • Yamazon3

    November 13, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    carnage7 it’s not that old. Look at the amount of days left in the counter. people are really donating because we all trust in James and know that he truly wants to deliver a good product for us. My biggest hope is that this will appear in theaters. I can’t wait!

  • Luka1184

    November 13, 2011 at 5:40 pm

    Oh, yeah James. Sorry πŸ™‚
    Btw, would you like to see te director I’m working with? πŸ™‚

    I almost forgot: It would be so cool to see a game named Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie: The Game (just as a reference to those abominable Street Fighter titles haha.

    I wish you all good luck btw. Oh and one last thing: have you seen Batman Live yet? You should, and review it. It’s quiet bad actually :/

  • B1rk1n635

    November 13, 2011 at 5:46 pm

    With 81 days left and upwards of 34k donated in just a few days from the post of this video i can surely think that its a possibility that the goal could get tripled or even quadrupled by the end. after this people i know i myself wanted to donate even more after seeing what the signed photo looked like and i think maybe other people are thinking the same thing. i hope it turns out the be completely fan funded so James can have 100% control over it as he said in the video. AVGN FTW =3

  • ramo10

    November 13, 2011 at 6:21 pm

    woah πŸ˜€ does this mean that the signed photo is on the way already? or do we have to wait to the movie is finnished? can hardly wait ….

  • ShadowpwnLord9

    November 13, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    Once I get some birthday money, I’ll make another contribution. ^^ NO QUESTIONS, JUST TAKE IT!!

    Watching this vid makes me happy. Maybe cause James is finally realizing his dream, or knowing I played a small part in making this happen.

    Regardless, kudos to you Nerd. ^^ Godspeed!

  • Twilightsucks

    November 13, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    God damn it James, stop spending my money on photos to autograph! Naw, I’m just kidding, I didn’t donate. I will though, you are my hero James!!

  • November 14, 2011 at 4:15 am

    Congratulations James!
    I am looking forward to the movie just like everyone else!
    Watch for an incoming donation from me as well!
    Any more AVGN episodes in the works as well? I did like the memories episode as well! Even another memories or similar episodes would work until the movie is complete.
    Thanks for all your hard work, I LOVE AVGN!!! πŸ˜€

  • November 14, 2011 at 10:01 am

    My god, James, the donations are sure to reach over $200,000 by the time the donation period expires! I wish I could have donated more than $30, but it was all I could spare at the moment, considering the holiday season coming up.

    If I end up with any left over money after Christmas, consider it a higher donation!

    Thanks for everything, James!

  • November 14, 2011 at 4:15 pm

    Hey James, I kind of introduced Stan Lee (Marvel Comics Legend) to AVGN and also Yu Kimura (a Japanese -Pop signer to your show! They both signed AVGN Volume 2 DVD . Do you think its cool that I imtroduced your show to other celebrities?

    Dude, I fix really old laptops from the 1990’s as a hobby. If you ever would like one of my laptops just in case you do a review on DOS games or something, (or even just to use it as a prop for one of your videos or the movie), I’m more than happy to give you one of them. πŸ™‚ I have like 7 of them and I can more than afford to give one of them up. xDD

    Now the question is, will they break $500,000? I think its definitely possible. He just got $45,000 since posting this video. Now t hat he’s got new perks coming, it’ll bring in people who aren’t interested in the original ones, and give people who donated reason to donate more. I know I’ll donate again.

    Fully deserved though – you’ve given hundreds of thousands of people all over the world a lot of joy over the last few years through your videos, me included.

    Keep up the good work & I hope you soon get to make the movie you’ve always dreamt of making! Cheers. πŸ™‚

    Wow, it’s amazing that you’ve gotten such a big amount of money in so little time, James. I’m truly amazed.

    Fully deserved though – you’ve given hundreds of thousands of people all over the world a lot of joy over the last few years through your videos, me included.

    Keep up the good work & I hope you soon get to make the movie you’ve always dreamt of making! Cheers. πŸ™‚

      @[email protected] the best part about it is that people are actually shelling thousands of dollars to support the movie. Pretty soon they will have over 200k, showing just how little his opinion matters.

  • MaxCarta

    November 20, 2011 at 5:45 am

    James, a word of advice. I used to be like you, making Super 8 shorts and then video “movies”, as a young man, it was for the fun of it and for the passion, as I got older, the process became bigger, more complicated, no budget was ever big enough and the amateur acting didn’t seem to fit in with my more adult concepts, and so, while I struggled with legal rights, raising budgets, casting and all that, I lost the passion, stopped making movies. Listen to me, you’ll never have enough money, you’ll never have the best cast, but if you get lost in that futile search, you’ll never make the movie either. Forget about competing with Hollywood, just remember why you started in the first place and run with that. Passion is all you need.

    Wow! I don’t know if you will read this, James, but I just want to say that you deserve this, and that I follow you since your first videos with castlevania and ninja turtles…

    You came a long way and you never abandoned your passion. In my darker days, when I was struggling to make my place in the video game industry as a music composer, I didn’t have much backup from my friends or my family…only my true friends were supporting me…and I was watching your videos, seeing your evolution… Your were putting a smile on my face even when I was really sad…

    You have been and you will always be an inspiration for me. Thank you.

    Yesterday evening I received the mail with the special video for my contribution and it is great! It got me so excited that tonight I dreamed of being invited to Jame’s house for a day! He showed me his game and movie collections, and then we went out for dinner together with Mike… Woah! It was awesome! Then I woke up and tought to myself… “Oh my god… I’m a fanboy!”

    I’m glad to see that everything is going on. I doubted that enough people would donate enough money. But I was wrong. The AVGN FanBase is awesome. Thats how Fans act!

    James, go out there and make this goddamn movie, like you never shot a movie before. If you somehow manage to make a German version for the non-english-speaking public, I’d translate and check the translation or promote it. You are awesome James. Damn Awesome.

    I follow you since your 50th AVGN-Episode. I’m glad you made it so far. Never give up.

    Yours sincerely,

    Eric from Germany

  • MatthewCorelli

    November 30, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    It’s almost up to $200,000, and there are still 60+ days left, that means you can either make a really damn good movie or, make a shitty movie, and go to Disney World, lol. Please choose the former. (Also if twilight can be done on $100,000 and thats now a cult, I am sure you and your creative team can beat the shit out of that crap!)…Can’t wait.

    This is worth so much more than the donations that have been made, and will no doubt grow into an epic to end all epics.

    Can’t wait to have my brains blown out by this cinematic masterpiece!

    Hi my name is Andreana and I am asking anyone that can help me find my brother and my sister this means so much and I need to find them right away SOS matter. Due to the fact that my dad needs help we want to organize an intervention with the TV Program that will be airing in Edmonton Alberta. There is so much to say about this but there is so little time. I am so looking forward to meeting them for the first time and dealing with my sister and brothers emotions about meeting them in this way. Right now I need my father to get help. My dad saved a boy in the snow and this was aired world wide and when the boy got better my dad made him a hand craft boat with his hands and that’s how it became a heart worming story. Now my dad needs this chance this is his one chance to keep himslf alive I need some funds to get this kind of help for him and find my family and be in my life and when i find the rest of our family and find my sister and brother I can then bring them on the intervention show and we can be a family. All of us together is his only chance!
