Komoton Studio, the creator of the animated Sango film, “Dawn of Thunder” has disclosed that lack of fund is the reason the film is yet to be released.
The Management of the company made this known March of this year in reaction to comments on a snippet of behind the scene of the film posted on the 16 of February on it YouTube page.
The company in the short statement said, effort to get funds for the production through private investment and crowdfunding yielded no result.
“We have been getting a lot of questions about when we will release the movie, that its taking too long,etc…
The statement read, ” we felt we should use this medium to answer. The short film we released a while back was a “proof of concept” to show what we were trying to work on, what was possible and to give confidence to investors rather than peddling a script around”.
We launched a crowdfunding campaign which a lot of people shared but didn’t support, as we don’t have a crowdfunding culture for such projects, we also approached a lot of investors for an entire year with no luck.
“To produce a movie of this level and to the standard we feel it deserves, its unfortunately expensive and very very difficult especially in Nigeria for obvious reasons. We are doing our best to create something out of nothing and we are sacrificing a lot to make it happen. Please be patient as we proceed”.
