      I pledged $250 for the studio tour and originally scheduled my tour for early/mid-May last year, but then production got pushed back and I had to take a job in Chicago come June. I've been back in LA for three months now and have sent a couple of emails to the Anomalisa gmail, but have yet to get a response. Am I shit out of luck? Or can I get some other kind of reward? Or can I get my pledge refunded? No hard feelings, but I want to know what my options are, if any...

      @Arnold and our other faithful KS backers,

      Please be assured that we are only working on Anomalisa. The scope of this movie has grown exponentially and while we cannot divulge the details, it is truly amazing what we are accomplishing and how hard this team is working. The movie is now 80 minutes long. We are adding as many shooting stages as possible.

      Please know that there is a team of 70 people in the Starburns castle working tirelessly, 7 days a week to get this movie done. We aim to have the movie completed by the end of year.

      Can we be better with our updates? Yes and we are working on it. We are working on a twitter feed that will share our stage walkie calls. We are working on employee profiles. In short we are working on creating a steady stream of content to share.

      Don't loose faith in us Arnold. Once you see the film you are going to be extremely proud of the project you backed. We are working, this is a slow process, but it is looking absolutely amazing.

      Keep talking to us and we will answer your posts. Until next time.

      Rosa Tran

      Lol i was just wondering about this?? is this still happening? what I am noticing the more "professional" the backing, the worse the delivery date, completely underestimated time and budget. probably working on another job as thats what these companies are like, so far you falling under my 2nd worst backing. Never again....

      Clearly, Charlie and team had, at a minimum, forgot about their backers who put $400 000 in his project, and at the worst flew with our money. But we are 2 people on 5 770 worrying about it!

      Creator Manuel Haj-Saleh Ramirez on February 28

      I agree with Marie at this. An update is due, even if there are no substantial changes. And I understand all those difficulties, changes, and stones on the road that have delayed the project. I even understand an understimation of the time needed (though it's been longer than a year since the funding process ended). But the longer the delay is, the scarcer the updates are. And that does not transmit confidence.
      So my request would be, as kind as possible: update us, the funders, more often. Even if it is just a couple of lines of the production log. It would mean respect to those who put money and hopes on it. Thanks.

    10. Fb_profile_picture.small

      Creator Marie-Andree Poisson on February 24

      @Brendan I don't care that much about delays and don't only focus on the end results, but also on the process of writing, pre-producing, producing, editing, etc. the film. That is what KS should be!

      Creator Brendan Hong on February 22

      @ Marie and Y.

      Don't worry, you're not the only ones waiting for an update. I've got faith that they'll finish the movie, but I'm guessing that like a lot of other earlier on Kickstarter campaigns, they severely under-estimated on the time needed. Hopefully there will be an update and better yet, a date of when the movie will be finished.

      So doing my monthly round of videogames and movies projects (the most delinquant on the communication front of all my projects, because, "oh well their creators are free spirits that don't have to be accountable to anyone except themselves").

      No update in more than 1 month (nearly 2). Update please! At least, put a link that looks like an update in a blog, forum or FB entry.

      @ Tara Imbery

      I can I say is that I agree totally with your point. Monthly update would be greatly appreciated for this campaign, especially for something running late. I know that they're working hard, but hearing regular updates would be great to all the backers left waiting. There's almost 6000 of us.
      I find asking Kickstarter to help is pretty pointless.. They tend to go "oh, well keep trying to contact the creator and we'll do the same."

      Creator Tara Imbery on November 18

      @ Brendan Hong - I know all about communication issues with KS campaigns - I'm in over 70 campaigns at this point. This one is one of my earlier campaigns and the only one that has been this delinquent with communicating its progress - or this vague when they do decide to give us an "update". Even a monthly update that just lets us know where things are at overall with the project would be leaps and bounds better than nothing.

    25. Avatar_green.small

      Creator Brendan Hong on November 16

      @ Tare Imbery

      I find that issue, regular update and communication, to be a big issue with a lot of KS campaigns, this one included. It's a fine line to walk between way too much and way too little, but in this case, with a project being late, it'd be nice to have some kind of regular monthly update. Even the tumblr, http://anomalisamovie.tumblr.com/ , that was suppose to be updated regularly has not be updated in 4 months.

    26. Ardeynally-thestrange-token-272x300.small

      Creator Tara Imbery on November 16

      @ Marie-Andree Poisson - I totally agree that this KS has been terrible about communicating where it's at with its progress. All we are getting is the "delightfully busy" updates, but nothing that actually tells us where the project is at in its creation process. Is the filming almost done? When is apparel being shipped out (they mentioned it was "very soon" back in August, but there hasn't been an update on that since)? Is there any sort of estimate about when backers will start seeing the fruits of their labour? I'm glad now that I didn't contribute for more than just the digital download, because the lack of communication would be really driving me batty otherwise.

      Starburns Industries - Could you please give us something more concrete than just "being busy"? Even an update a month would be better than radio silence. Don't be that guy.
