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

At 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.

Want To See Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Price’ Get A Film Adaptation? You Can Help Get It Made!

If you’re a fan of Neil Gaiman‘s work, you’re probably already familiar with his short story The Price, about a family whose lives begin to change after a mysterious stray black cat takes up residence on their front porch. The story was originally published in Gaiman’s short story collection Smoke and Mirrors, and if you know Gaiman, then you know that this is no ordinary story about a cat.

Aspiring filmmaker Christopher Salmon has launched a Kickstarter project to raise the necessary funds to adapt The Price into a computer-animated film, which has the full support of Gaiman himself!

Salmon created an animatic for The Price, a storyboard mock-up of his vision for the adaptation, which you can watch it here below, and it’s a real treat, as Gaiman narrates it! The video also contains a message from Salmon regarding his aspirations for the film.

Trust me, once you watch it, you’ll feel like, if this is what Salmon can come up with just as a spec, imagine what he can do with the full project. You will want to see the entire project, it’s that compelling, and the beauty of it is, YOU can help to get this film made! That’s what the Kickstarter project is: Salmon needs to raise $150,000 for the project before the December 1, 2010 deadline, so anyone can donate to the cause, and for as little as $10.
