Hello! We hope this finds you well.
We've gotten some comments and feedback from many of you recently, and have realized we can / need to better clarify a few things and also, wanted to let you know about the amazing things that are happening with the film.
So with that, here we go:
As mentioned prior, we're a 3 person production team (meaning, we're doing our best to keep up with the demands of the film, but we're not always able to tend to everything as quickly as we'd like. With this, our hope is that for anyone who is on Facebook, that you will find us HERE - as we have a robust social action and digital team working on that daily - and it will give you infinitely more information about the life of the film than we can here through Kickstarter (and we don't want to bombard you from every direction).
The other place you can find great information is on our newly built out website. Please go HERE to find loads of exciting information about ways you can get involved further in discussions and actions around economic inequality issues. Finally you can FOLLOW US on Twitter to receive periodic updates about the film, its release, and efforts being made to battle income inequality.
We are thrilled to report that the film opened on 28 screens nationally last weekend - this is HUGE for a documentary and we were successful in having one of the biggest opening weekends for a doc in years! We'll be expanding to 41 screens this week, and even more in the coming weeks. THIS PAGE on our website is updated daily with new cities/theater listings.
For those of you who are due a digital download - our apologies as the description of when that would be delivered was unclear. When we said "upon release", due to industry standards and practices, to clarify, this means around the time it is released on DVD and available on digital download commercially. Unfortunately this is not something that can be done while the film is in theaters - distributors are not allowed to release anything in any downloadable form within 90 days of when it's launched in theaters when working with most any of the main theater chains in the US - and thus, this fulfillment has to follow the same rules. We will be working with our distributor on how the downloads will be delivered to you at that time - it's not something they have a system set up to do - but they're very appreciative of what it means for you all to have given to the making of the film and look forward to working with us to actualize this.
Lastly, for those of you with whom we owe the other last rewards, like the lunch with Jake and Bob, or the drawings - thank you for your patience. Bob and Jake have literally maybe been home about 5 days in the past 6 weeks - and so we've been worried about setting a date, particularly for those of you who would be traveling for it - with the worry that a commitment for the release of the film might force us to change the date. But we're circulating dates to come back to you soon with possibilities we can feel good about. And for the drawings...Bob is excited about working on those...but again, he's been out there promoting the film all across the country and is also teaching this semester. Bear with us - but know we have not forgotten and they will happen in due time.
Thank you all again for your support - particularly at a time when our country's government has just been shut down - we believe it's quite meaningful to put forth a film that offers another way in which to try to work together - with respect, civility and with the greater good of our society as a whole as a core belief.
