Upgrades via Backerkit & Updated Cast List!
Backerkit Upgrades & Add-ons!
Today I will be sending out email invitations to Backerkit, where you can do upgrades, add-ons and address changes.
- You do not need to create a BackerKit account - just click on the survey link in the email, fill it out, and you’re good to go! You will be able to answer questions about your rewards preferences, update your shipping information, and pledge for more “add-ons"!
- You do not have access to this survey link yet, but it will be available soon via email!
- You can change your responses any time before we lock down the surveys for processing on November 15th. If you do add-ons or upgrades via Backerkit, that's when your credit card will be charged.
- You will be able to recover your survey here: skipbeat.backerkit.com
- If you use your Facebook login for your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey will be sent to the email you used for your Facebook account. If you have another email address that you would prefer to use, please contact support at skipbeat.backerkit.com/faq
We are also accepting new backers via this link.
I have done a lot of soul searching about whether or not it is fair to accept new backers, and on what terms. After all, you were the ones who saved this campaign in our time of crisis and put down your cold, hard cash MONTHS ago.
My conclusion: I think we all win with new backers, because the funds will give added support to the dub team (which they absolutely deserve!) and enable VERY exciting upgrades to the dub (still in the approvals process)! Please share the Backerkit link with folks who missed the Kickstarter campaign!
Also, the following perks are exclusive for Kickstarter backers:
- Digital download rewards - Wallpaper, Dub Behind the Scenes digital booklet, Dub Behind the Scenes video updates
- $10+ tiers - name included in the Backers Wall
- $100+ tiers - name included in the Special Thanks credit roll on the DVD/Blu-ray and also Special Thanks printed insert
- $100+ tiers - exclusive merchandise item
- Exclusive pricing on the Satin Baseball Jacket add-on and Poster Signed by the Dub Team
- And of course, the crazy ride we've been through together!!!
