DVD update

Wanted to update everyone.  We have sent all of the rewards that we have from those who have provided us with their information.  It was a monumental task. Those who are overseas please give it a few extra days as they have to clear customs.  Those in the U.S. please give it a few extra days as USPS sometimes has "issues."  With that said, if you have not received your rewards by next week please email us directly via kickstarter.  We are also going to contact everyone individually who we do not have addresses for (or who have moved and we have had items returned).  Sorry for any delay, perhaps due to kickstarter or email issues a small number of people never got their "kickstarter survey" to provide us their contact info.

Thanks so much everyone. We are getting incredible feedback on the film and should all be proud. We have had a ton of people ask about it for others who weren't a part of kickstarter. We have just made it available to those who didn't contribute to kickstarter. It is only available in the U.S. and Canada at this time. Please spread the word as it is the perfect Christmas gift! has all the info.  Thanks so much everyone, Rise & Shine!

      I received my DVD and shirt. Much thanks. I haven't had the opportunity to watch the movie yet, but will shortly. Congratulations and thank you for keeping your word on the deliverables. Your communication during the project was very much appreciated. I am certain my money was well spent.
