The final stretch!
Hi everyone, just a quick update to say we are in the final stretch! Under two weeks, just under 900 backers, and just about 90% funded!!
None of this would have been possible without you. We will have some new announcements coming soon too. We're trying to leverage every ounce of momentum with the campaign to close down some deals / partnerships so that we can reveal them before the campaign ends on the 13th. More on that later! :) Please read to the bottom of this update, as there is an important question below!
As always, your shares, pledge increases and word-of-mouth make a HUGE difference. We've seen so many of you share this or post about it in the last few days and it's incredible. There's also been a big uptick in engagement from the scientific community itself! Check out some of these examples:
Some of these folks might not be household names the way Stephen Hawking is, but these are some of the top scientists in the world, to be sure! It's immensely exciting to see their support!
One final question: we are getting a deal in place to make vinyl albums available! Because the sheer length of this show (approx. 2 hours we're anticipating) this would be a pretty big album. 3 double-sided discs, minimum. As such, the baseline costs would likely force the album to retail around $100, which we know is far from cheap.
So here's the big question: if we offered it as part of the campaign, would you be willing up to raise your pledge to get in on it early? We are looking at ways to make an extra special limited run of Kickstarter-specific copies, but want to gauge the interest. Just leave comments here and we'll go from there.
Thank you again!!
