Christopher Salmon To Adapt Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Price’

Neil Gaiman The PriceAt the beginning of November, we wrote about a Kickstarter project that was launched, which was to raise money to make a film adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s short story, The Price [Read Want To See Neil Gaiman’s “˜The Price’ Get A Film Adaptation? You Can Help Get It Made!].

Aspiring filmmaker Christopher Salmon, who had created an animatic (an animated storyboard mock-up) for his vision of a computer-animated adaptation, set $150,000 as the funding goal for the project, with December 1, 2010 as the deadline.

As of yesterday, the funding goal was met — and exceeded!

The final amount raised through the Kickstarter page was $161,774, contributed by 2001 backers, which means Salmon can now follow through on his plans for the adaptation, which, from the start, had the support of Gaiman himself.

You can go to the Kickstarter page to see a “thank you” video from Salmon, who talks about his passion for this project and his plans for following through on making the film.

Everyone who pledged money toward the project will receive something in return: The minimum donation of $10 gets the contributor an online credit as a donor at the film’s website, while those who pledged in the $25-$499 range can expect their own copy of the film, along with other goodies (depending on the pledge range). Those contributors in the upper amounts of $500-$5,000 will also get autographed items, gift packs, “Associate Producer” credit,” and even a seat at the movie premiere next to Salmon and Gaiman.

Salmon had said he hopes to complete the film by Spring/Summer of 2011 and to enter The Price in several film festivals.

Geeks of Doom donated to the project, so we’re thrilled to see that the funding goal was met and that we’ll be getting what looks to be a really wonderful film. Best of luck to Mr. Salmon!
