Hey there, backers!
Just wanted to let you all know that as of this morning, all backer packages are on their way! I have a couple non-responders to track down yet, but this is a big milestone, for sure, and it took almost a week of multiple daily trips to get it done.
As a token of thanks and a way to mark this auspicious occassion, I've put an exclusive board game-themed screen saver up on the website for you to grab.
This was created by Kerry Hutton, the animator for the film, when we were tinkering with screen saver creation programs. It's a public link, so if you like it, feel free to share with worthy friends.
Now that the Kickstarter packages are shipped, I encourage you to tell all your friends that the film is available for purchase at http://www.goingcardboard.com should they want it. Reviews and feedback have already been pouring in, but here are a couple examples:
I also added 3 new screening events to the screenings schedule (two in Nashville, one in St. Louis):
