Update #7

Color correctionist finally finished

Comment

After 9 months the very good, but inexcusably, insolently slow guy we got to do color grading for much less than it would normally cost, but at the price of almost half what we raised, has given me a final product. 

Audio and graphics finished long ago so I'll be assembling everything by Labor Day. You'll be getting DVDs in September.

Almost a year after you pledged and 8-9 months late but thank God and thank you all once again!

I've contacted everyone who gave an amount indicating that they wanted a somberero or a canasta basket and not heard back from many of you. I'm assuming a lot of people just want a DVD, which won't be available until January. But, If you want your handmade Mixteco style sombrero or basket now, just let me know your address and hat size, S, M, L. If you want a hat and a DVD please send me your address now and I'll send both in January

If anyone who gave $25 would rather have a basket than a DVD, (you still get a digital download) let me know your address and I'll send that as soon as you would like.

Thanks again for supporting Mexican Dream!


Update #3

We did it but...

the more we receive the more we can pay to some folks who will be offering services for much less than their full professional rates.
