Street Fighter II documentary Here is a new competitor raised over £ 27,000 through crowdfunding on Kickstarter recently, but the team behind the project have now announced that another fundraising campaign will take place via Indiegogo “due to demand from fans who missed their chance to support it in 2020 “.
The goal is an additional £ 35,000, but the team will receive all funds raised even if this goal is not met. £ 15 gets you a digital copy of the film, while £ 28 gets you the digital copy, digital soundtrack, behind-the-scenes footage and your name in the end credits. The £ 40 tier adds a physical copy of the film on Blu-ray and an A3 poster. There are also £ 500 and £ 1,500 tiers, which earn you Associate Producer and Executive Producer credits, respectively.
Interviews were obtained with Julian ‘Jaz’ Rignall (formerly of Mean Machines and CVG magazines), Paul Davies (formerly of CVG magazine), James Goddard! (ex-Capcom USA), Jeff Walker (also ex-Capcom USA), Stuart Ashen (Ashens), Steven E. de Souza (director and screenwriter of the 1994 live-action film Street Fighter) and Benny “The Jet” Urquidez (martial arts choreographer for the aforementioned 1994 film).
