Bad news (https://www.mikebatt.com/mike-batt-blog/2019/2/9/one-door-opens):
[…] PLEDGE MUSIC – the crowd-funding platform that has for so many years offered a route to market for independent artists, have reported that they are in a cash-flow crisis and seeking a buyer. That leaves us unable to fund our SNARK project. […]
Mike Batt‘s latest Snark project is to make the first-ever recording of the FULL-LENGTH version of his musical The Hunting Of The Snark, based on Lewis Carroll’s famous nonsense poem. He invites you in his PledgeMusic campain to support to finance this ambitious recording.

Enjoy the six seconds:
There is a crowd funding page associated with this project run by Imperious Films. Simon already managed to crowd fund one earlier project. To me this crowd funding looks more like an offer to pre-order a personal copy of the movie rather than to cover the production cost. Good idea.

Michael McNeff needed 50000 US$ for postprocessing his Snark movie. In December 2013 crowdfunding reached 7777 US$. Alas, that was not enough and the funding was stopped.
But the spin still is fun:
Let’s hope that in a few years the required computer power will be available for less then 777 US$.
