This update seeks to advise and clarify the rewards due to backers at your level and the expected timetable for delivery. It is not yet final and I appreciate it is much later than was first estimated when I launched the Kickstarter appeal in late 2011.
Rewards can be broadly categorised as follows:
- Cat A. Thanks on the website/access to exclusive online content;
- Cat B. Physical merchandise such as signed postcards, posters and digital stills, Amir’s previous films for the BBC;
- Cat C. The film itself (whether DVDs, Blu-Rays or digital downloads); and
- Cat D. Film credits and tickets to various launch events e.g. UK or US premieres.
Estimated timetable for delivery
Cat A = May 2015 and ongoing.
Cat B = First half 2016
We would like to send these at the same time as we send Cat C in order to minimise postage costs (backers are all around the world!)
Cat C = First half 2016
The reason this is so late, as I’m sure you will understand, is that DVD/digital downloads can only be released once the theatre/cinema distribution is complete and we hope the UK release in May 2015 will be followed by a release in other countries, particularly the USA and Canada in the first few months of 2016.
Cat D = From May 2015 as events occur.
UK Premiere = 21 May 2015, UK Cast & Crew Party now estimated 2Q 2016. Others TBC.
I am excited to start getting the rewards to you soon and to bring you more good news about our film in due course.
