"That Money"

A message from Jeff E. Winner:
Thank you for helping us raise $40k during our first week! We've met our initial goal, but that was in fact a modest step to move forward, and we really need much more to deliver the Film U Want...

      Tony - the misunderstanding's totally mine. Now that I feel stupid, I'll go post on my facebook to drum up more backers to make it up to ya. :)

      Liam: (Note we said "95% shot and currently editing," not "completed.") Yes, more funded = more interviews and footage, and a better, more complete picture of the de-evolution band — and they deserve it!

      Hi - I seem to have misunderstood what the 95% meant. The clarification is appreciated! If more money equals more interviews and footage then let's hope for as many people as possible to see the light!

      95% completed does not = 95% funded. One of the biggest costs is, as we mentioned in the first update, is paying for the rights of archival footage — expensive properties such as SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, DAVID LETTERMAN, and many others.

      Regarding the 2 $50 levels, you can choose the rewards for either one or the other.

      You said you needed $25k to complete the project, you've got $40k and now you need more as 40k is a modest step. You've posted two updates saying the same thing, and there's no breakdown as to where or why so much more money's needed to fund a project that is "95% completed".
      Also, There are two $50 tiers, and still no explanation as to how they're going to work.
      I love Devo, and I backed this because this will probably be a very good and insightful film, but with no feedback or updates with any real content outside of "thanks for the money, but we need more," it's looking questionable. I'm good with giving you my money, but I'm good with pulling it if there's no explanations.
