Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far. This means we are definitely going ahead with CD and DVD production.
But it's not over yet! First, if you want to make sure you get your hands on CDs and DVDs, the only way to guarantee it is by pre-ordering here on Kickstarter.
Second, now that we've met the initial goal, we can strive further. These are known as stretch goals, and they will benefit our entire Pancake Manor community. How far can we go? We can't wait to see!
Everyone who has pledged for the $20 reward or above will get Pancake Manor stickers included in their package! This includes new pledges AND old ones!
Pancake Manor will get a new star! That's right, we've been wanting to add a new puppet for a while now, and meeting this goal will enable us to do it. And we'll let you in on a little secret...it will be a GIRL!
EVERYONE who has pledged during the campaign, no matter the amount, will be invited to appear with their family in a special celebratory video!
About Pancake Manor...
Pancake Manor is a popular musical video series on YouTube aimed at kids and awesome parents. It is created by us - Billy Reid and Reb Stevenson - in our home in Victoria, Canada.
A Parent-Friendly Sound...
When we were kids, we both rocked out to the pop music that adults were listening to on the radio - stuff like Madonna and Michael Jackson. Our mission is to create music that we would have liked as children and continue to love as adults.
Since launching the series in 2011, we've seen Pancake Manor welcomed into homes and classrooms all over the world.
But there has been a recurring request that, until now, we haven't been able to fulfill: "do you have a CD and DVD for sale?"
Friends, we can't bear to disappoint you any longer!
Therefore, we've decided to offer this - a Kickstarter campaign to make that request become a reality in time for the holidays.
CDs and DVDs...
If this campaign succeeds, you will have your hands on the very first hard copies of Pancake Manor's CDs and DVDs, so you can listen to and/or watch your favourite Pancake Manor hits anytime, anywhere.
The CD will contain 14 tracks from Pancake Manor's first year, including "Shapes," "Dinosaur Bones" and "Alphabet Song."
The DVD will include video versions of all of the favourites on the album plus more recent songs like "Pancake Party," "Wheels on the Bus" and "The Planets."
Making Sure it Happens...
In case you're not familiar with how Kickstarter works, it's an all or nothing system. If we reach our goal, you get DVDs and CDs. If we don't reach our goal, you don't.
So, it's really up to you, dear fans! If you want these products please make a pledge and then spread the word about our Kickstarter campaign!
What if We Exceed the Goal?
Beyond making the CD and DVD production possible, every pledge, no matter the size, enables Pancake Manor to produce more and more videos for your enjoyment. If we exceed our goal, the funds will go towards some exciting expansions we've been dreaming of.
Risks and challenges
Since we will be relying on some outside sources for CD/DVD production and delivery, there may be some unforeseen forces that affect our ability to get the products to our backers in time for the holidays, especially our fans outside of North America.
However, it's our goal to get them to you by mid-December so they can be given as gifts! We will keep all backers updated on the progress throughout November and December to avoid any surprises.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
