Dear Avi Krum enthusiasts,
I was recently interviewed about THE FILMS OF AVI KRUM on Kick In, a live streaming show about Kickstarter projects, during which I talk about writing the script, working with Dan Rather, and overusing the phrase "I hope so." Here's the audio if you have 20 minutes to kill:
(Thanks to host Miles Bloxson, and producer/director Sam Proof for making me feel very welcome. There's also video of the show here.)
I also have an update for our international backers, many of whom have asked me about shipping costs (they really have, I swear). Adding extra money to your pledge for shipping costs is entirely up to you, but it would really help us out if you live outside of the United States. (Unfortunately, the U.S. Postal Service charges extortive rates to send DVDs and poster tubes beyond our borders.) For pledges $100 or less, $20 will definitely cover our costs, and above that $30-35 should do it. Again -- this is completely voluntary, and only required if you're feeling generous or have some extra cash that you need to get rid of for legal reasons. We'll send you your reward no matter what.
Finally, if you live in South Korea or another country with restrictive customs policies, you may be concerned about receiving a DVD in the mail that resembles North Korean propaganda. Fear not! We are now offering, upon special request, the THE FILMS OF AVI KRUM: A LOVE STORY DVD. The content of the film is the same, but the DVD is encased in stealth packaging that resembles an inoffensive romantic comedy designed to penetrate the heart of your local customs official and travel straight to your doorstep.
Thanks so much for your continued support! With 14 days left to go, we're 127% funded -- but plenty of rewards are left. We can always use extra funding to spend more time on visual effects, and send the film to more festivals, so be sure to tell your friends about AVI KRUM.
