      So excited! Thank you to all of my fellow backers for making this one a reality. This is such an important story to tell, and I'm very grateful to Richard and everyone else on his team for making it happen.

      It's official - post-production costs for A BUSHMAN ODYSSEY are now funded, thanks to YOU, the 134 committed backers of our Kickstarter campaign, and the many people who helped network this project to viral levels. YOU made it happen!

      Thank you so much.

      We now begin structuring the edit process, and will keep you regularly updated on progress to completion.

      Coming soon ... A BUSHMAN ODYSSEY!

      Hi J Ashley Odell

      Thank so much you for your support.

      Yes, all backers will receive the picture of Dawid as well as their selected reward.

      Kind regards

      So many congratulations! I'm very excited about seeing the final product. Quick question: Will those donors who gave more than the minimum receive the signed picture of Dawid as well as whatever reward they selected?

      I'm very confident that you are going to find your project oversubscribed, with cash left over to help the First People get their message to the world even more directly (as an experience? a very special safari??) but just in case you're short a few hundred, please get back to me and I'll find the extra money you need somehow. The world needs this story to be told.
