Manufacturing process underway!
The manufacturer CD Video Mfg had to rebuild and reprice the entire DVD/BD package, which was time-consuming and nerve-wracking. See the mockups below (not pictured - 2.5" sticker, Special Thanks insert, Backer Certificate insert). After much negotiation I paid the 50% deposit on Friday July 14th, and we are officially in the manufacturing stage!
*If* all goes smoothly, we will be able to ship the rewards in August! I will continue posting micro-updates on the comments section, and I will do another official update before we ship.
Question for you!
We have some opportunities to screen "Skip Beat!" at conventions in August, which would be great to promote Skip Beat!
What if we screen 1 or 2 episodes before you get your DVD/BDs?
YOU deserve the first viewing, but I need to ask because promotion is critical for getting this release to more fans. As you are probably aware, I set the Kickstarter goal as low as possible so we could get our basic funding goal, and then I committed most of the additional funds toward improving the release (marathon mode, bonus features, and most importantly the English dubs of the music). We created a world-class dub, but this only works as a business enterprise if I can get the DVD/BD packages to more fans. And that requires promotion, and I want to grab every opportunity.
So that's my pitch to you, but what do you think? Please leave your comments.
Thank you all!!!!
