If you’re a fan of Minecraft, or cross country running, than Birth of Man may very well be up your alley. The film is inspired by Mojang’s massively popular blocky sandbox game, and it will have an impressive feature-length running time. The ambitious project launched a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter earlier today where it’s looking to raise $600,000.
With as popular as Minecraft is, I don’t see that being a difficult goal to reach. The only question is, do you want to see it?
UPDATE: The movie’s Kickstarter has been cancelled. Apparently, Mojang, the studio behind Minecraft, wasn’t okay with Rocket Jump raising $600,000 for something that’s based on their IP.
We don't allow half a million kickstarters based on our ip without any deals in place. :/
