We're still alive (and working)!

Posted by Electromagnate (Creator)

Hey everyone!

I know it's been a long time since our last update… but I want to let all of you know that we are still working on the film! It is (obviously) taking a lot longer to put the story together than we'd hoped. We want to thank all of you for your patience, and rest assured, you will get the DVDs that you were promised.

A lot has changed in the Maker Movement since the beginning of our project; but there are still many, many people out there that are completely unaware of the movement occurring right now. We have done our best to keep up with the movement itself, and tweak our story and focus in light of recent developments.

We are 97% done with filming, our storyline is set, and we are in heavy post-production mode. Needless to say, it can take a while to chop up all the footage, arrange it, and make it look pretty! We are doing absolutely everything in our power to have a finished film by the end of the year.

Again, we are truly sorry for the (extreme!) delay in delivering a finished DVD. It's a lot of work making a feature length documentary, and as many of you know, the first time you do something, it always takes twice as long as you were expecting. We really want to thank you all for being so understanding. We'll do our best to post more regular updates here on our progress!

As an aside, we've received a lot of requests to sell another run of the shirts that were a part of the rewards here. While it would enable more people to show their love for Making, we realize that the reward was for a "limited edition" shirt, and we'd hate disappoint our backers by selling more of them. We are, however, open to the idea if there aren't any complaints! What do you all think? We'd love to hear your thoughts! Feel free to leave us a comment!

Thanks again,
- Jordan Bunker

P.S. - Here's a little bit of animation with voice-over from the wonderful Eric von Hippel about user-innovators! It's still a work in progress, but we wanted to show you some of what we've been working on! (You may need to turn up your audio, as the volume on the clip is a bit low.)

      Hello. Any news for 2013? I see the last update was about half a year ago. We certainly realize that it takes a ton of time and effort to complete a film, but letting us know how things are going every few months or so would be appreciated. :) Thanks very much, and hope all is well.

      I have no problem with re-issuing shirts.

      Please keep editing away!! We are looking forward to the release and encourage you to persevere.
      As for T-Shirts, my original limited edition gets a lot of wear, and shows it.
      I would love to see something similar but with differences so The Limited remains such.
      Perhaps a light colored shirt too - the black text and images tend to get lost in the background.
      Heck make it pink. :-)
