Mark Staufer's ebook/app project will blend video, audio, images and text on iPhone, iPad, Android and other devices

Screenwriter Mark Staufer has hit his $75k target on crowdfunding site Kickstarter for a project called The Numinous Place, which will be released as an ebook and app for iPhone, iPad, Android and e-reader devices, as well as computers.

With a few hours still to go, the project reached its funding goal through just 158 backers, although they included actor Russell Crowe, who pledged $25k. Staufer and Crowe both grew up in New Zealand, and have been working together on a biopic of comedian Bill Hicks.

Staufer is the creator of the project, and will be working with British digital agency Brandwidth to publish it. Their ambitions are high, judging by their Kickstarter pitch:

"The Numinous Place has the visual impact of a Hollywood blockbuster, and the pace, depth and intrigue »
