Shameless Self-Promotion: Bushi-go's Veiled Alliances Across the Board

It felt rather like finishing a home improvement project, standing back, wiping the sweat from your face and admiring your handiwork. We put up the trailer for our animated adaptation of Kevin J, Anderson's short novel Veiled Alliances on Vimeo on Friday, so that we now have direct download links for iOS, Android and Windows Phone, and the trailer up on YouTube and Vimeo.

Of course, this is not the end of our PR push in support of our "Veiled Alliances" app. but Vimeo was the last item on our current list of places to establish a downloadable or streaming presence on the Web. We'll keep soldiering on as long as we feel that we haven't reached everyone in our potential audience, and we'd be happy to hear about more places where we can stream the trailer and otherwise set up shop and get our message out.

At the moment, you can find the app here:

iOS version: iOS App Store

And you can stream the trailer here:

Apart from the obvious self-interest in play here, I'll be mightily ticked off if we can't generate enough support to keep this project going, especially since the app is free and all we're asking people to do at this point is download it and/or view the trailer and add to our numbers. The pilot episode turned out well, especially considering that we made it on a frayed shoestring of a budget. I'm more proud of it than most of the projects with which I've been associated in my career, regardless of genre. It looks great, the voice cast (not just Robert Picardo as Adar Balin'h, but everyone) did a fine job with my script, and Will Roget's OST sounds gorgeous — heck, download the app just so you can listen to a few ,minutes of his music; that alone is worth the trouble.

If you haven't downloaded the app or at least given the trailer a view, please support us by doing so (in fact, it's a good time to check out our YouTube channel, as we have stopped running ads temporarily). The more impressive our metrics, the easier it will be to convince investors that there is commercial potential here. There are some good and talented people — and I don't mean just Kimberly Unger and me — who are hoping for paid work from Bushi-go acquiring the means to finish "Veiled Alliances." But we can't acquire the means without your help.
