If you’ve had your eyes on the news, or if you live in California, you know we’ve had some profound problems with flooding over the last week. A great number of us were evacuated (I myself was booted from my home for three days), and the unfortunate disaster has left quite a few California residents with plenty of damaged property and destroyed goods.
Count Adam Green and ArieScope among the unfortunate victims.
But we have a chance to help see this amazing company through a hard time, and we don’t have to take to any crowd funding outlet to make it happen, Adam and the gang just need to sell some of their company gear to try to financially rectify the situation as possible.
And we strongly urge you to make a purchase. These floods could have been life changing for me, but I was one of the lucky ones. It tears me up to know ArieScope took a serious hit. Let’s help the gang out now, when they need it most!
Here’s the scoop from Adam and the gang:
On Friday February 17th, Southern California was pummeled with the worst torrential rain the area has received in many, many years. Los Angeles was hit with flash floods, sink holes, and a massive path of destruction in which homes and vehicles were destroyed. In a few tragic cases lives were lost in the storm. While we are grateful to report that everyone in our family was unharmed by the severe weather, unfortunately we can’t say the same for our beloved studio. Our home.
The flooding was bad. Several items from our 19 years of filmmaking (so far) were destroyed while various props and creature displays from our films were damaged. Though some of the items were irreplaceable and are now just memories, the good news is that we have already begun the clean-up work, most all of our film’s props that were damaged will be refurbished and restored, and ArieScope Pictures will most certainly live to fight another day. However, your help is greatly needed now more than ever. Please consider buying something from our on-line store or donating to ArieScope/THE MOVIE CRYPT through our “Feed Arwen A Treat” option located in our “BUY STUFF” section right here. With the help of our fans we hope to be back on our feet quickly.
Yes, this week’s episode of HORRIFIED will still premiere this Wednesday no matter what we have to do to pull it off in time. Rain or shine (or in this case- lots of rain) we always meet our deadlines. And for those who have asked via social networking… do not fear, Arwen is fine and was not harmed in the flooding. In fact, to add her own comical twist in all of this… she tried to swim in the flooded area right before going home for the evening. Arwen loves swimming and as far as she is concerned a pool is a pool… and laughter is always the best medicine.
Thank you for your concern, your well wishes, and especially for your generosity in supporting us right now. We love you all.
-Adam Green and the entire ArieScope family
