Dearest Backers!

Hope all has been well in these last months! Here at Design Canada headquarters we’ve been diligently working on the movie. Our edit has been going really well and we’ve gotten some great feedback from our advisory team. Our feeling is that we need to continue shooting more footage, so we’re restructuring the rollout of the film so that we can spend another month or two filming. This will allow us to add several additional key pieces and expand on the best aspects of what we already have. We anticipate having the final film in Spring 2018.

That said, we’re going to move forward with manufacturing and shipping many of our rewards starting in late September, so keep an eye out for a Backer survey in the coming weeks.

We appreciate your continued support on this amazing journey. This history is so important to preserve and share, and we’re committed to making the best possible film to show you and the world.

More info soon, and in the mean time here are a few behind the scenes pix!

Kindest regards,

Jessica, Greg & Gary

      Ah, and here's the answer to the question I'd sent @Jessica! The silver lining to the delay to the Spring is I now have an excuse for a trip somewhere in Canada this Spring.

      I wanted to make sure that I didn't miss the backer survey email - it's already October and I haven't received one.

      Hello to the three of you,
      We're approaching the end of September and I haven't got any survey yet. Did you had the chance to send them?
