At this time four years ago, I was in a panic about funding the movie. Waking up in the middle of the night hoping that some else had donated; feeling terrible and guilty when you actually did. Of all the things it took to make the film, getting it funded was the most stressful, and I'm still in awe that you all came together to get this movie made.
So I'm thrilled to be able to finally send out the Seed Money screeners.
We have had an amazing festival run this summer, with screenings at over fifty festivals from San Francisco and New York to Sao Paolo and Taiwan, and with sold out houses at major festivals like Frameline, Outfest and Newfest. In the coming weeks, we'll be announcing (finally!) distribution.
Despite all of this, many of you still haven't had a chance to see the film. This, of course, is near criminal, as you were the one's who actually backed it. Unfortunately, it also happens to be one of the unfortunate side effects of the tortured path distribution works — the DVD mastering is one of the last things to get done.
In the four years since you funded this project, of course, many of you may have moved. While hopefully the earlier rewards (the posters, the t-shirts, the stickers, etc) got to you in time, I suspect your address may have changed.
In the next few weeks, I'll be sending out the final reward: the screeners. In order to make sure they get to you, please go into your Kickstarter Profile, and do the following:
1. Click Backed Projects
2. Click Seed Money
3. Edit Your Address
Next week, I'll download all the new addresses and begin the process of fulfillment. If there's anything that you haven't gotten from previous rewards, let me know. I believe I owe a few big spenders a lunch, and possibly someone my hand in gay marriage.
In the meantime, we still have a number of festivals left to play, including Liverpool and Stockholm International (both on 22nd)! More good news to come (stay informed at Facebook.com/chuckholmesdoc or on our official site.
In the meantime, get those addresses updated and again, thanks.
