      Dear Cheryl, all the rewards were sent out. A number of people didn't fill out the surveys they received - if that's the case then we didn't have your information. Send me an email please: movie(at)theiranjob(dot)com and I will send out the DVD. Sincere apologies!

      so I was just telling my friend how I backed the project and I realized I didn't get my DVD. :-( and it's been a year!

      Dear Clabbe,
      DVD's are being dubbed as we speak and Kickstarter rewards are getting ready to go out so hang in there a few more weeks and you'll have it. Thanks so much for your patience!

      Any news on any release date for the DVD?

    7. Sara_till_kickstarter.small

      Creator Sara Nodjoumi & Till Schauder on April 16, 2012

      Dear Clabbe,
      Hope you're well! As for your question regarding the DVD -- we explained this in our March update but you may have missed it. Since we're still completing the actual film the DVD won't be ready until the Fall. (The DVD can only be created once the film is fully finished). However there will be opportunities to see the film in theaters and public screenings before then. Please follow our website and Facebook page to be informed about upcoming sneak preview screenings. Thank you for your support and your patience!

    8. Claus.small

      Creator Clabbe on April 16, 2012

      So I will have to wait how long before I can get the DVD I expected to get now in April?

      Very disappointed in your latest news! War, or a U.S. military action might not wait for the properly rolling out of the film. I hope the desire for a wide market and commercial success does not supersede its purpose to encourage diplomacy with a peoples we would all become more familiar with through the film. A human face to the "menace" is needed now!!

      Creator Sara Nodjoumi & Till Schauder on December 25, 2011

      Ali Jan, happy holidays! Our apologies for the confusion regarding the "mini-poster". In the early days of the campaign we had the idea to send everyone who pledges the mini-poster, regardless of pledge amount, but we've since realized that it'll be more effective to send the mini-posters when we're closer to the actual release of the film - hopefully in the first part of 2012. That said, since you were one of our earliest backers, we'll find a way to make you happy!

      I can't wait to see this film! I'm a writer and the next book (Young Adult fiction) I have outlined is tentatively set in Iran (as long as my publisher doesn't ask me to change it!) Because of that, I have been devouring every documentary I can about Iran and in the process have developed quite a passion for these movies!! I am very excited about this one as it seems very honest and really good at showing the life of Iranians in Iran! I'm very excited that I can be part if this project even if in the tiny part that my $50 contribution can make!

      Discovered your film project today at CNN. The more I read about it, the more I became fascinated. Your timing couldn't be better. I feel this film could have a very positive effect on the turn of events in Iran. I have several friends and acquaintances from Iran or of Iranian lineage. They are very friendly humble people. Plus they have the best pistachios in the world! I'm pleased to offer my support and spread the word.

      Thank you Özgür and Melody for your beautiful comments about THE IRAN JOB. Very encouraging to hear this from folks like you two, who live in such different parts of the world.
