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.
