BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez, post-production and kickstarter rewards

Posted by Goldwater, Attie, Gordon (Creator)

To our wonderful Kickstarter supporters, 

 We know what you're thinking: you heard an awful lot from us during the Kickstarter campaign and things have been a little quiet ever since. But besides giving you a well-deserved break from our emails, we have been busy in post-production. We were even able to add a few shoots to our schedule that we think will greatly enrich the final cut--all thanks to your support. We are enjoying the fun part--editing, musical scoring, graphics, and enduring the not so fun part: obtaining archival rights and making those tough decisions that will enable us to stay within budget.

Sonia continues to be a gracious and fascinating subject amidst her constant travel and writing--a whirlwind of activity as she approaches her 80th year. 

Wondering about your reward? Well, some of you have already received your Kickstarter rewards. Some are still in line to be mailed. If your reward includes a digital download or a dvd of the completed documentary, you will receive the other parts of your reward first. We expect to be able to deliver the documentary component sometime this summer. We are working hard not to compromise quality by rushing it . .. Thanks for your patience!

Barbara, Sabrina and Janet
