      I understand the challenges you faced to put this project together but it's been 2.5 years, the orchestra has toured internationally, and the video is available worldwide. It seems that your loyal backers have been forgotten. 39 updates and many promises later, we are still empty-handed. Please restore our faith in your good cause and make things right. I've run a violin school on a third-world Caribbean island for 15 years and done all kinds of fundraising and subsidizing. The DVD was meant to be inspirational to my students. A digital download or coupon won't work for me, and I was also supposed to get a signed picture and poster to put up in my studio. How is it not possible to at least get the pictures to us? I feel very let down and disappointed. It was a big donation for me when I have my own program to support.

      $2 discount? Is this for real?

      Yes like others, thought my pledge was for a digital download. Glad that kids/film got exposure since Kickstarter but extremely disappointed.

      Following up on what the others are asking--when can we expect our DVDs?

      I also received the digital download link and now suddenly and surprisingly find my pledge is only for a $2 off coupon. Completely misleading!

      Hi. I received the link for the digital download but when it brings me to Vimeo it only gives me a $2 off discount and I paid for a digital download not just a coupon. I just verified that information on my Kickstarter account. How can I remedy the situation? Christine Goodridge

      Will people who pledged at higher levels for DVDs and BluRay discs also get a digital download or is that only for people who pledged $15?
