Birth of Man – a Minecraft feature film

Updated 7th Feb 2014

We don’t allow half a million kickstarters based on our ip without any deals in place. :/

Tragically, it seems that Brandon Laatsch didn’t ask Mojang for permission to make his Minecraft film. The Kickstarter campaign has been cancelled, the videos that I published here have been pulled from YouTube (though the trailer can still be seen on the Kickstarter page) and there has been no word from Brandon either via Kickstarter update or his Twitter account. All a bit of a shame really, especially as the film had already raised 10% of the $600,000 required in under one day and Brandon would certainly have been able to deliver a pretty cool film.


Birth of Man – a Minecraft feature film Kickstarter campaign.

We have been repeatedly disappointed by Hollywood’s interpretations and creations of movies based on popular video-game franchises. We would love to see a video-game movie done right, and we feel that, as people with their feet in both the gaming and film-making worlds, we are the right people to do it.

I’m proud to say I was amongst the first 12 backers. 🙂
