    (THE ABOVE REWARDS+) You will be listed as an "Associate Producer" on the film's website, IMDB, and in the movie credits. You will also receive this film, and all films we make in the future, pre-release as well. For your great contribution we will give you a personalized thank you note signed by the filmmakers. Your name will appear alphabetically during the end title crawl under the heading "Associate Producers," and will run on the left side of the screen alongside the traditional credits on the right. This way, you can impress your movie-going friends relatively quickly when your name comes up on the big screen! (Especially if your name is spelled "Aabaca.")

    (THE ABOVE REWARDS +) PHOTO SWAP WITH A NORTH KOREAN! A little known fact about North Koreans is that most of them have never seen a camera before. Another fun fact is that most of them have no clue what the rest of the world looks like. For this reward level, all you have to do is send us a picture of you + your friends/family doing something that captures the spirit of life in your homeland. We will then take this photo to North Korea and show it to a North Korean, and capture their reaction to seeing a picture of you, on camera. We will then take this HD photograph of the North Korean (plus a message from them) and send it back to you, thus triggering a wave of awesomeness and connectivity throughout the globe. Also, feel free to attach a brief message to the photograph and we will have it translated for you.
