      I believe we have all been scammed by JC Chang. I ran into him in a eatery in Arcadia in late 2012, he mentioned something about the sound wasn't finished because the guy who supposed to do it was a volunteer without pay...anyway. He just took the $6000 and created a one minute teaser.

      I am wondering when we will get to see the actual documentary. We would love some update to whether or not there will be a scheduled showing or when the backers will receive their benefits (such as a copy of the DVD). Thanks!

      Any update on when the backers are receiving their benefits? This project has been going on for over 2 years now.

      Hi, I haven't heard or receive anything for a while, and it has passed 5 months since the last promised releasing date of the video. What's the process of it, are we backers receiving the finished version soon? When will be the premiere?

      Thank you for spending your time this season to make this documentary. I hope all Arcadia alumni support your project!

      The 'Arcadia Apache Marching Band' program has a rich history of excellence in Southern California. As impressive as the band program is, and it IS, equally impressive is their 'Arcadia Festival of Bands' (earlier known as West Arcadia Band Review)! This 'picture-perfect' tournament, set with the beautiful San Gabriel Mountain range as a backdrop, stands as THE premiere 'end of season' marching band showdown... and has for decades! Congratulations to directors, students, parents, alumni, and community. Best wishes on funding and filming this project!

      Wish you the very best on your project! I am a former marching band mom from Georgia. Our band partcipated in BOA each year as well as marching in the Rose Bowl parade. I know how much hard work is involved. I also know what an amazing experience it is for all involved. I still miss those days!!

      Dear JC
      I hope within your film, you mention the importance of fund donation to this music program. More importantly, that you provide a simple mean to donate to the program as you did for your film. PayPal donation or Amazon are both easy & efficient way to do so.

      I would be happy to donate to this program if only I knew how ? Nobody, ever ask or even provided a mean to do so!

      The preview is great! I look forward to see the film.

      Best Regards,
      Joseph Gadoury
