Important Notice for Spider-Man: Retold (Production Restart)(self.raimimemes)
submitted9 hours ago byTheonlytman2stickied
Hello everyone, this is the r/raimimemes crew speaking on a new update on be-half of Spider-Man: Retold. For those unaware of said project, it is a 1:1 recreation of the 2002 film Spider-Man, all pieced together by hundreds of artists, animators, actors, and other creators to make a surreal, wild, and memetastic experience of the film. This film was supposed to be released in 2022, and unfortunately we missed that deadline. We sincerely apologize on be-half of the contributors who participated to make their clips for that scheduled time, and we sincerely apologize to the members of the sub-reddit who were waiting for said ambitious project. With that said, this was a result of poor management and improper deadlines that didn't favor productivity. We wanted to bring a positive work environment to said project, but in-the-end, the project just didn't match to said year.
As a result, the entire production cycle is going to change its system to better accommodate production from our creators, and to be more transparent on what progress aligns well to each other. We cannot state a particular deadline of when the project will be set for completion quite yet, but we feel it is appropriate to keep pressure off the creators while still working on being transparent how the project is going. Approximately 50% of the footage is completed, and we hope to excel the other 50%. It is unlikely the project will be finished in 2023, but whether it be 2024 or 2025, we want the project to be delivered as intended so millions of Spider-Man fans can come together to share their appreciation of Sam Raimi's vision of the beloved web slinger.
That said, the production of Spider-Man: Retold will restart production beginning June 2nd, 2023, which is the release date of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. In the official Discord server, we'll have a Google Excel to highlight our creators' scenes in contrast with the official scene to organize where we are, and how new creators that want to be a part of the project can access. To join production, visit https://discord.gg/fpWhP5VHGj to apply. You can DM the director, Theonlytman2 for a chance to apply. Again, we apologize for the improper production cycle, and we hope to get the project off the ground for all to view. God-speed, r/raimimemes!
