Princess in Another Castle Director: Story Much Better Than Escape

Princess in Another Castle Director: Story Much Better Than Escape

As the crowdfunding for the feature-length sequel to Escape winds down, creator Kennedy Baruch chats with The Escapist about the project and the future.

The Indigogo crowdfunding drive for Princess in Another Castle, the feature film followup to the YouTube hit Escape, is entering its final hours. While the project is only a little more than half-way to its goal, it looks like the film will still be made.

In an exclusive interview, seen below, writer/director Kennedy Baruch sat down with us to give us some insight into the project, including why the film is set in 1996, why a little girl is the main character, and how video games are used as an outlet for bullying and family problems. He also included some rough takes for the new film.

Escape proved to be very popular, and prompted the new movie. Baruch has promised more Zelda in the film, while saying that some of the mistakes in the original -- such as an extremely fragile GameCube, or a missing memory card -- won't happen here. "I've been paying attention," he said.

Check out the interview, then head on over to Indigogo and drop a few bucks on the film if you haven't already. The project still needs $4,300 in the next 35 hours.

This is not exactly true, so don't let it stop you from chipping in some cash because you see it so far from it's funding goal with so little time left.

The drive is $4300 short of it's goal at this point, yes, but it doesn't necessarily need that much. As per IndieGogo, the film will receive the monies it does raise even if it doesn't reach it's goal and, as per the creators, the film is being made regardless with various "extras" and "quality improvements" being put into play with a higher amount of money raised. On the most basic level, the movie is already being made (filming is actually almost completed at this time) but getting to $10000 will allow the film to be polished to the level where it can be shown competitively at festivals and the like.
