800 backers pledged $28,720 to help bring this project to life.

AT LAST. . .

To all my generous Kickstarter contributors:

The El Capitan DVDs and Blu-rays have finally arrived!

For those of you who have posters coming, they have already been mailed.

I’m sure many of you may have given up on ever getting your copy of the film, and rightly so, since it has taken almost six months longer to complete the restoration than expected.

I want to thank all of you for your patience, and to know how important your contribution has been toward completing this project.

Thank you,

      This is great news. I also never gave up

      Given up? Nah...for some reason, you come across as far more legitimate than some of the scam artists and grifters that I'm sure pepper KickStarter. Besides, things don't always go to plan. Well done on pulling the rabbit out of the hat and I look forward to seeing the finished product!

      Congratulations on completing a mammoth task. The wait just builds the excitement, I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve!! Cheers Fred.

      I'm so excited about receiving the DVD and having a family movie night!
