Everyone who donates will get their name in the credits. This will be your movie as much as it is ours. We're also giving out signed screencaps and copies of the DVD to our backers.
Each backer option includes the one before it. Our special Producers Packages include credits on the film as an Associate Producer, plus additional involvement in the film itself.
We'll be screening Break Down at festivals throughout 2013, talking to distributors and making sure everyone knows about it. When your local arthouse theater advertises that our movie is playing, you can tell them that you made it possible.
Our plan is to have the film edited and ready by July 2013, with a run in festivals and theaters for months afterward and a Fall 2013 release on BluRay and DVD. See the backers' packages for details on how to receive your copy early.
We plan to license the film for digital streaming on multiple platforms.
Now that you know what the movie is, what we need to make it, what your role in it will be and where it's going, let's talk about specs.

You'll receive updates every step of the way, every day. Take a video tour of the studio with us next week; look for designs, storyboards and crew bios to be posted each day.
You'll stay updated with casting calls, location announcements and new developments as they happen. We plan to not only be transparent, but inclusive. Comments left by our backers will be considered valuable feedback and we will consider any and all input as coming from a source that cares about this movie.
Our Kickstarter campaign will be over by the time on-site production starts, but the updates will keep coming. Backers who offer support of $35 or more will be included in a special e-mail list to receive updates on production that the general public won't see. Backers who choose one of our Producer Packages will be granted special access to the set itself.
