Todo o nada

Production

BEFORE THE DUST SETS (Volume 1 of 2) is the beginning of a ghostly tale starring Woody and Jennie Lee, an immortal man made out of wood, and a crippled woman with mechanical legs. Using the backdrop of the First World War and human atrocity, the protagonists will discover that life is a distorted set of mirrors where nothing is out of place, where everything depends on your point of view, and where dreams are more important than reality. We will bear witness that friendship is as powerful as the deepest hatred. Brought to you by the hands of Antoine Ozanam and Pedro Rodríguez, creators of YAGA, we invite you to discover this exciting, intimate, and exquisite story.

Il progetto

During WW1, a German soldier (Woody) avoids death in the most impossible manner. Due to the miraculous incident, his superiors select him as the perfect candidate to infiltrate the enemy's lines in a secret mission. His objective, to kill a high-ranking French officer that is more concerned with being victorious at all cost, than with the future of Europe. 

Along the way, Woody will be accompanied by Jennie Lee, a disabled young woman, to whom he is linked in ways he's not yet able to comprehend. Page after page, the mysteries of their past will be uncovered, and during their travels we will witness that nothing is as simple as it seems, and that appearances can be deceiving.

In the meantime, in Paris, Arsène Abeille (a man as mysterious as he is cunning) is alerted that an invincible german is tracking him down to end his life. With great impatience, he awaits the time of his encounter with the German spy and prepares to receive him in a proper manner.

At the same time, we will discover the past of the enigmatic Robert W., an old Varsovian carpenter with extraordinary occult cabalistic knowledge, closely connected with Woody and Jennie Lee.

FORECAST OF DEVELOPMENT AND CONDITIONS OF THE CAMPAIGN:

GENERAL

We know the kind of effort it takes to do a good job, and both the author and Spaceman Project are prepared. We love this medium and we want to take it to another level where the readers, authors, and booksellers are the protagonists. It is because of that that we have taken the small details into account and adjusted the fundraising goal for what we’re offering.

This is an all-or-nothing campaign model. In order for the project to become a reality, we need to reach 100% of the goal. The length of the campaign will last 30 days but can be extended by 7 more days if the project reaches 75% of its goal before the end of the month.  As the publisher, Spaceman Project, can make contributions to the campaign to boost or complete the goal at its own discretion. As is customary, an announcement will be made public if this happens.

COSTS INCLUDED IN THE CAMPAIGN

Author / Cost to create

Platform / Creation, management, and Crowdfunding collection management.

Publishing / Editorial advisory, quality control, translations, graphic design, pre-production, printing, delivery of rewards to backers, and bookstore distribution.

DEVELOPMENT PIPELINE

Author / 15-18 months after the end of the campaign. *

Editing / 3 months of editing after the author’s final delivery.

Printing / 5 to 10 weeks for printing.

Deliveries / it will take between 2 and 6 weeks after the books have been received to be sent to the backers.

*Spaceman Project is not responsible for delays in the creation as this is the author’s commitment to the backers. In the case that the work is not finished, the author is directly responsible for refunding the backers. 

All illustrations presented in this campaign are provisional and are subject to change once the goal has been reached, and work on the project commences. This is only applicable to the cover images for the most part, not to the story, the format of the work, nor the rewards being offered. Obviously, we are presenting a work that is in progress and under development. Creativity has no limits and we are confident that we will not stop improving, and as such, we have made a commitment to quality with our readers.

While the project is being created, the authors are responsible for issuing updates and keeping the backers informed. Once the materials have been delivered to Spaceman, the publisher will be in charge of informing the backers about each of the next steps (Editing/ Production/ Warehouse arrival/ shipment of packages).
