This month in particular has been full of ups and downs as we approach the finish line, and this time around I want to let you in on just what's happening.
We've spent a fair amount of time rewriting a later chapter of the DVD after our recent round of editing because after so much tweaking of the previous chapters, it no longer fit. We're cutting in the last pickup footage for that section, and then doing one more pass of editing.
We've got a local DVD manufacturer ready and waiting for the final disc, and then the printing process begins.
We learned a lesson last month about how important it really is to work with local small businesses. The first printing of the tee shirts, done with a big, name brand national company, came out horribly, even after long conversations with their design and printing departments. They initially looked like a fast and professional option, but in the end it was a lot of work on our end for tee shirts that were so bad we had to return them. We took our design straight to a local tee shirt printer and have started the process over - this time we know they'll come out right.
One big thing we're excited about - we receive molds for the Cx5 bars tomorrow! We started the production process for better molds in January so we could make sample bars of Cx5 more quickly than we were doing with our old molds. After working out the kinks with design, the delivery date was pushed back to June, and we figured they wouldn't arrive in time for Kickstarter. We were excited to see that they'll be here tomorrow, and we can get better sample bars made more quickly for all of you!
Thanks for all your patience, and also for your input on what you'd like to hear from us as we keep working.
