More Insight Behind the Scenes of Production

How did Eddie Lebron score original Sonic voice artist Jaleel White for his fan film, anyway?

Those topics and more are covered in a lengthy question and answer session sponsored by the Fans United for SatAM website, made possible through their partnership with Lebron and his work and posted by the website early this morning.  On the topic at hand, Eddie does note some personal, out-of-pocket sacrifices had to be made to afford White’s fees toward the project, and the project as a whole.  Lebron adds he doesn’t regret the decision to spring for Jaleel, and adds ten to “maybe twenty” percent of the film’s budget has come from donations.

Other topics touched on include the decision to proceed with a live action direction versus pure animation, and word a script re-write is underway.  Lebron does plan to to approach Sega with the finished product, which many may know did not work out so well for Richard Kuta, who recently released a finished scene for his Sonic fan film.
