      I feel like an idiot - i came to check on updates and don’t recall getting links sent to my email - is it too late?

    2. Zetetics

      My apologies...I just found the email. Thanks!!!

    3. Zetetics

      I am kind of confused about when the movie is available? It sounds like a link was supposed to have been sent out? Or am I just missing something????

    4. Gabriel Sunday Creator on

      Pedro Guilherme Piedade - we sent out links about a year ago. I've re-sent the links to your email on file. let me know if there's any issues. enjoy!

      Hi Gabriel
      I never received a link and the download on Vimeo doesn't appear to be working. Could you please send me a link to this. Many thanks. Mark

    13. Gabriel Sunday Creator on

      Hello Mark,

      hi i never received a download / access code for the film can you sort this put please?

    15. Gabriel Sunday Creator on

      Thank you all so much for your messages and support. So happy you like the film!! Dan's fans are who matter most. We hope you share the film and let me know if there's any issues with the promo code

    16. Ronald Huygen on

      Success with the premiere today !!!

    17. Ronald Huygen on

      Trailer looks and sounds good!

      Almost two years on from when i pledged on this... The initial film for the kickstarter was almost 4 minutes long. For a 15 minute film this sure is taking a long time. Corin Hardy made his debut film, a half hour long stop motion animation, called Butterfly with no budget in five years. Makes me wonder what's taking so long given this has a full crew and is only half the length.

      Any news at all please?

      PaCo ,
      ¡Gracias hombre! Estoy feliz de que tienes que conocer a Daniel y comparte tu arte con él. Apuesto a que fue halagado y emocionado de ver sus creaciones . Gracias por su apoyo. Estamos impacientes y se bombea más allá de la creencia. Mantenerse en contacto. Desde que escribió en español , y no estoy con fluidez , voy a traducir este mensaje a través de Google Translate. No tengo ni idea si va a ser exacta, pero es la forma en que leí su mensaje. Mucho amor. Gracias ! --- I hope that worked. Thanks again, PaCo! -- GabeSunday

      Hi, how are you?
      Creo que soy de los pocos o quizás el único de habla hispana que apoyó este grandioso proyecto!
      Soy fiel admirador de Daniel e incluso hice un diseño para ayudar a promocionar este proyecto (una lata de soda moutain dew) que después supe que a Daniel le gustó mucho! :)
      Tuve la oportunidad de conocerlo aquí en México el año pasado y cada vez me sorprende más el gran artista y músico que es Johnston! Mi felicitación y admiración para las personas que de alguna forma ayudaron a ésta gran persona! Estoy impaciente por ver el cortometraje! Muchas felicidades! Mis mejores deseos!

      I lost my head for a while, I was out of line, out of whack.
      SING IT!!!

    22. Ronald Huygen on

      I had lost my mind

    23. Gabriel Sunday Creator on

      Thank you for checking in. Certain aspects of our film took longer than expected. But with that time we've been able to collaborate with artists, musicians and cartoonists to create a more trippy and animated reality for Dan's world. But we are VERY close. We will have a more definitive time frame soon and will share release plans asap. Thanks for being so patient. The Spirit World will rise. - GabeSunday

      I've still not heard anything about this project. I've been waiting, but now I'm curious if everything is okay? Is there a definitive timeframe for the release of the film, etc?

    25. Gabriel Sunday Creator on

      Of course!! Thanks for checking in, Steve! I promise it'll be worth the wait :) Thanks again for your support and dedication to Daniel and the film.

    26. Steve Caruth on

      Glad to hear everything's going well. Didn't know what was going on. Thanks for responding so quickly.

    27. Gabriel Sunday Creator on

      Hi Steve. You didn't get a survey because you got the movie/soundtrack download. I only need your email to fulfill that reward so we're all good. Like the reward details say you'll get the film/soundtrack once our festival run is complete. Our estimated time was March, but we're still working out details. Sorry for the pause in updates. I'll post one this week I promise! Thanks -- gabe

    28. Steve Caruth on

      Never received a survey. Haven't heard anything in months. Just wondering what is the current status.

    30. Jessy Williamson on

      Hey Guys - hope everything is going well and the editing is coming together. Can't wait to see the film. For those of us receiving a "Special Thanks" will that be listed on IMDB?

    31. Jason Gallagher on

      Hey Gabe and team. Just wondering when you release the soundtrack if you are doing lossiness options like flac instead of just mp3? Well thanks and hope the project is moving the way you envisioned it... Can't wait to see it and hear the original score...

    34. Gabriel Sunday Creator on

      Hey Joel! Like the delivery date says, we aim to send you the film around March of 2015. We'll post an update soon. We are editing, editing, editing... alone in a dark room with just the sounds of Daniel Johnston singing us tunes... so it's awesome :)

    35. Joel Haushinka Pragnell on

      Is there any news on when the film will be finished?

    36. Gabriel Sunday Creator on

    37. Gabriel Sunday Creator on

      Marianne, your signed cassette has been shipped. You should be receiving it soon! Thanks so much for helping our film come to life! :)

    38. Marianne Fourcaudot on

      I was wondering if everything was shipped! I still have no news from it and it's February.
      It said January for the estimated delivery. If there's a delay I understand, but I want to make sure it's not lost!

    39. Gabriel Sunday Creator on

      Joel and Kyle,
      Your rewards have been shipped! Thanks so much for supporting the film. I hope you enjoy those Daniel J treats and we look forward to sharing the movie with you :)

      I donated as much as I could for a poor college student. I really wish I could've donated more to some exclusive art to hangout proudly on my wall. I can't wait to see how it's going to be when it's finished.

    43. Carson Coots on

      Looking forward to it!
