      When will the pledge manager come out?? I'm wanting to up my pledge as I couldn't previously but want to upgrade to another tier if possible.

      Peter Dinklage �� Dam I wish I had seen this before I went on holiday, I would have paid the $600 instead of the $27 ��

    19. Matt Grady, Factory 25 Creator on August 24

      Hi @Kenneth French — Thanks for checking it out! To differentiate it, I put it at the $101 level:

      "(Signed) 'Soup' Book & Blu-ray + VINYL" — Let me know if you have any issues. Thanks again —

    20. Missing avatar

      Kenneth French on August 24

      I pledged over $100 and went to "Manage your pledge" but I don't see the "+ vinyl" mentioned in your latest email.

    21. Matt Grady, Factory 25 Creator on August 24

      @Boaz Halachmi @Colin William Wallace Sorry to be silent on this! Boaz is right, everyone at $25 and up gets the message from Peter. (Very excited about that, personally.) And he's also right that at $600, you get the custom voicemail outgoing message recorded by him — a different thing.

    22. Matt Grady, Factory 25 Creator on August 24

      @Jommutta Jumpaluang I really appreciate you reading it! Thank you

    23. Jommutta Jumpaluang on August 24

      I really appreciate the latest update. :)

    24. Boaz Halachmi
      on August 23

      @Colin: My bad... Sorry. Read the update again. You are right. Everyone who pledged $25 and up is willing be emailed Peter's surprise message. Apologies.

    25. Boaz Halachmi
      on August 23

      @Colin: All shipping details will be collected at a survey that will be sent to you by the creator sometime after the end of the campaign. To get Peter's voice message, you need to change your pledge to the $600 tier.

      Hi Matt, I'm really happy to be a part of this, this is one of the few things really worth supporting on this platform since it is a project to preserve a picture for future generations!
      I pledged 25$, so I'll get a postcard, right? How do I give you my address? And with the new update, is it possible for me to get an audio message from Peter as well?

      Thanks in advance for your response m!

    27. Jommutta Jumpaluang on August 20

      I am in the soup now with 25$. Yes, let safe it.

      Hi Matt,

      Thanks for covering all loose ends :)

      If it is not too difficult, I would prefer a head-shot of either her on "In
      the soup" (90s) or "Flashdance" (80s). Some good old nostalgia :)

      what do you think?

      Best regards,

    30. Matt Grady, Factory 25 Creator on August 16

      Hey @Andrew Simpson I can't make those available as one-offs for $20 as there's a limited number! Sorry about that!

    31. Andrew Simpson on August 16

      Hello Matt, I pledged for the $100 level (soup book and blu ray) but would love to have one of these continuity photos as well. If I added an additional $20 to my pledge, would I be able to get one of those photos added to my package as well?

    32. Matt Grady, Factory 25 Creator on August 15

      Hey @M.A. Thanks for joining us! Re: the headshot, we were thinking present day — Jennifer's choice — but out of curiosity, what do you prefer?

    33. M. A.
      on August 15

      Hi there,

      It is with joy to know that the film is making head way :) congrats with regards to that.

      Just a side question, with regards to Jennifer's headshot, is it one taken during the time of the film? or present day?

      Thank you and i wish you the best for the time to come.

    34. Matt Grady, Factory 25 Creator on August 14

      @Konstantinos Thank you!

    35. Matt Grady, Factory 25 Creator on August 14

    36. Matt Grady, Factory 25 Creator on August 14

    37. Adrian Martin on August 13

      Vimeo... I'm not familiar with it. They host it and we receive a link? Download, not stream?

      I assume the Blu-ray will be region-free ?
      And will it contains subtitles ?
      Thanks !

      I reached down in between my couch cushions and managed to scraped together a few more bucks to pledge. And quickly sent it in. f you look, that is what I found. I remember watching this film on cable, multiple times back after its original release

    42. Matt Grady, Factory 25 Creator on August 11

      @John Deemer Thanks for asking — That tier was sold out but we've added a few more slots! See $500 VIP Screening & Special Thanks.

    45. Garrett Solomon on August 10

      Through what platform are you offering the digital downloads? I'm considering upping my donation and I want to be sure that I'm getting my money's worth.

      Will the blu-rays be pressed discs and not bd-r? Also will a blu-ray release be available for sale to the general public or is this kickstarter going to be the only way to get a copy? Thanks and congrats on hitting the goal so soon!

      So excited the goal has been surpassed! Woot!

      @Matt Grady If you choose to add things on to the project, and the t-shirt goes with the gun and bowl, I'd be interested.
