D&D: A Doc update
Thank you for taking the time to read our updates. We're disappointed that these updates need to include notes about legal strife. We get it: it's a bore.
We've been receiving a higher volume of notices and communication since Monday. Please understand, we did not plan for this and aren't set up with the amount of resources to respond to all in the kind of timely manner we would like.
From what we have read, we've seen a few sides expressed and we understand.
Here is our first pledge to you: we will update you regularly and with as much unbiased and transparent details as possible. Look for an update about once a month. Also, there is quite a bit of the legal negotiations that we can't speak about so that information will continue to be excluded. At one point during this past year, a (generously-hearted and fair) friend said to us: "People like games. People don't like it when their parents fight." We agree.
Therefore, our second pledge to you: in our updates, as we learn more, we will still seek to share with you some of the inspiration, humor, history and influences that D&D has cast throughout its communities over the past 40+ years.
Our third pledge to you: our team has not use your funds to pay for any of the legal bills.
Lastly, our position is this: if we could have avoided court and simultaneously carried this film to a healthy completion, we would have taken that road. (We'd kind of rather be spending our personal finances on making the film or on a vacation, or two).
Thank you for your interest.
Best, Cecily & the DnD Team
