Thank you for all of the celebratory expressions and accolades!
Because of you, we've crossed over the funding threshold into the FUNDED zone. The amazing dynamic that all of you have combined to create is difficult to convey. It's both humbling and energizing.
And the joy it's brought to family, relatives, and supportive friends almost makes it worth doing in and of itself!
STRETCH GOAL: $250,000It is the Kickstarter tradition. Something we cannot ignore! :-)
When we launched this Kickstarter campaign, our default plan (if we were to reach $200,000) was to announce a stretch goal of $250,000 for a Blu-ray option. But given the obvious demand for Blu-ray that was expressed early on, we were moved to provide a Blu-ray option right away, summarized as:
Any occurrence of "Animusic 3 DVD" in the rewards could be upgraded to "Animusic 3 Blu-ray" for anyone willing to wait an extra 4 months (and optionally add $5+ to their pledge).
This will continue to be the case -- unless we reach $250,000...
HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO
If we do indeed hit $250,000 (sudden pledge spikes at the end of Kickstarter campaigns are not uncommon!), at that point we effectively change "OR" to "AND".
Rather than needing to decide which format you prefer, you'll receive the ANIMUSIC 3 DVD when it's complete, AND we'll also send you the Blu-ray once it's finished. So if you'd like both, please help us reach $250,000 (our original budget level that included Blu-ray production).
#2 ON THE CHARTS!
If you're into stats, it appears that once our campaign ends (even at our current level) we'll plop right into the #2 slot of Kickstarter's MOST FUNDED Projects (ANIMATION category).
