Is the "all-ages" version only going to be a digital release or can I get it as a physical DVD?
Just wanted to let you know that I received my DVD, watched it with my Mom - and even though she is someone who is not interested in comics, she LOVED it. Sign of a good documentary! Thank you and please keep us up informed of your future projects!
Got the DVD. Can't wait to watch :D. Is it correct that the director's commentary track is only available online? I could have waited a bit longer to have it on there. Oh well...
Brilliant and important film, guys. I also LOVED the book. Thanks!
I 2nd the image of the insert to print out idea.
Have not received my DVD as yet. Can't wait! Hope it arrives soon...
Incredible job, folks! Love the documentary - so inspirational. Thank you! So proud to have backed this project
David! The insert idea is a genius one. If you see I haven't created/posted it in a week or two, ping me a reminder at email@example.com
For the new DVD release, is it being released in a plastic clamshell, or is it going to be like the paper envelopes that we kickstarters got in the mail?
If the former, I'd love to have an image of the insert to print out and put into my own plastic DVD clamshell. Frankly the paper envelope is a little tacky and it doesn't face out on the shelf.
The film is not available in the Canadian iTunes store, Google Play, or VHX as of today (April 1). I've been getting emails about this for years and I just want to see this thing.
Hey, International Backer here - have you received the bulk batch of DVDs from the manufacturer yet? You mentioned that some backers already had their DVDs, but I'm guessing those are people who were in US, single DVD.
Michael Sanchez, I was a two-DVD backer who switched to a DVD and a download, and my download code came through fine last Thursday.
I watched the movie with a fellow Kickstarter on Saturday, and HOLY COW, you guys! It was start to finish professional and amazing, and you really grappled with the theme of the pros and cons of the digital revolution. Listening to Bill Watterson talk over the visuals of Calvin and Hobbes was so perfect, I think it was better than if you'd done video with him. This is just such an amazing project, and you did so much with it. I was really proud to see my name in the end credits. Now was the time for exactly this production, and *FANGIRL* and stuff. GOOD JOB *pompoms*
Have all the downloads been sent out yet? Just wondering cause i have seen no mail yet and we were told tues-thurs. Or is there a snafu with backers getting multiple copies(I got 2, one DVD one e-ther)?
About when will the DVD be sent out? Not trying to be a jerk or anything, but I still haven't received mine.
I have to admit there were occasions during the long wait for STRIPPED when I thought. "This is really taking a while." Having just finished watching, I can see where the time went! Wonderful piece of work, totally worth the wait. Now I want to go back and freeze-frame the beautiful art samples that go by so fast. Seems certain to have great success.
Just finished watching my downloaded copy (on the sly at work), and my only complaint is that it had to end. I could listen to all of these artists go on and on!
Am I correct in my understanding that my digital download link will come on the same day as the itunes release? April 1st?
I'm with Sara. i didn't realize the DVD was lower resolution either or I would have opted for the download. Too late to switch before it ships?
Geez, I wish I'd known that the DVD copy would be lower quality than the download. I'd have chosen the download, but stupid me chose the DVD, figuring the only difference was time.
How about just giving the international backers a temporary VHX stream so we can see the movie we've waited literally years to see? Please don't confuse this with anger, we just want to see the thing!
All right, so there's a timing discrepancy too 'eh? A digital download "early access" date, a DVD ship date, and a "general release" date. So pick either the 1st or 2nd, because we can't do any more until the 3rd.
I've got to admit, I am disappointed things aren't simpler. Like: 1. Here's your download link; 2. DVD's ship when they ship (soon); 3. General release. Most projects I've backed have worked like this. Yes, it's true download links were never promised, but still, I'm confused why this isn't the case.
When the film's in general release, it'll be available on iTunes and VHX.tv for download, yes. But there's no way to buy it beforehand, no.
Okay, I get that you don't want to do both. Whatever the added cost is, can us International backers get a way to throw a few more bucks at you to get access to the HD download while we wait for our discs?
Hi Mike! As I mentioned below, the offer to swap out a download for a DVD doesn't work in the case of international shippers, admittedly. Since there's no good mechanism for reimbursing shipping, you'd probably want to opt for the DVD as originally promised for your backer reward.
Wait... So it's either or?
TBH, I don't really care about the physical disc (especially at DVD resolution), but the extra I paid for shipping (Canada) does confuse things.
They'll be pressed
Another question: will the DVD be pressed or burned on demand? The main advantage of the DVD for me is the durability, but burned media will likely fade over time, so in this case I might go with the download and burn my own copy.
Well, just to be more positive, thanks for letting us choose! It's the paradox of choice however: while we didn't have to decide we were happy, but now neither of the options has *everything* we'd like, so we're sad we'll miss something either way.
I think I'll be getting the DVD because I'm old-fashioned and like physical media, but IIUC the suggestion to buy the download later still doesn't get us everything because it won't include the extra content (so there'll be no way to get this extra content *both* in a physical format and in HD).
A suggestion: maybe you could offer the people getting the DVD a high-def download of only the extras, and then we can buy the HD film later; it seems that would make everyone happy. Cheers!
FAQ so far:
- The DVD will have closed captioning, and the download will come with an optionally-selected .srt file.
- The resolution for the download is 1920x1080 as an H.264 MP4. The resolution for the DVD is 720x480
- The same content will be in both: The full film, plus an extra 28 minutes of content. We had promised 16 extra minutes, but it's 28. What the heck. Shoot the moon. :)
I'm sorry adding the option to choose has caused you angst: Not our intent!
Also, I'd like to point out that the reward tiers didn't even include an HD download as one of the options; if we were given a choice up-front this would be less surprising, and I'd have probably opted for the HD download from the outset.
I don't get why the HD download is being offered instead of the DVD, rather than in addition to - after all, digital downloads are practically free, and the funding and reward tiers were already structured based on having to ship out a physical good, which is the expensive part of reward fulfillment.
I mean, I definitely prefer a HD download over a DVD and I'll be selecting that, but I hope that you change your mind and just give everyone both regardless of the survey.
@Alex Unfortunately, the offer to swap out a download for a DVD doesn't work in the case of international shippers, admittedly. Since there's no good mechanism for reimbursing shipping, you'll have to opt for the DVD as originally promised for your backer reward.
Hi, I want the HD download, but I (and all the other international backers) would have already paid the $10 to post it. Is there any way we can still get the DVD+postage we paid for, and the download to watch whilst it's being delivered?
1.) The download is HD, 1920x1080 -- and the DVD is standard def like all DVDs, at 720x480
2.) It will, yes!
3.) I hadn't thought of that... but I suppose I can make that up, when the Kickstarter fulfillments crush dies down, sure!
4.) It wouldn't, no.
Hope that helps!
@MassHysteria: Thanks for the note! Happily, both DVDs and digital downloads will be available for sale when the film goes live to the world -- so the answer to your question is yes: You'll be able to get both. I'd suggest picking your preferred media, for now, and adding the second media when the film goes on sale. Thanks!
HI there, I echo MassHysteria's comments. I want both a DVD and the digital download. Can you answer these questions? 1) What resolution is the digital download vs. DVD standard rez (presumably 720p)? 2) Will the digital download have all the same extras as the DVD? 3) Can you provide printable jacket art so we can make up our own DVD or BluRay from a PDF + the downloaded file? 4) Alternately would a DVD ISO image be available alongside the higher rez download? Thanks in advance. With this info I can make a more informed decision :)
I just got the reward survey, but I really want both delivery options. I like having the physical version, but I'm going to rip it and store it on my media server anyway, so having a hi def digital copy would be great. Is there any possibility of getting both? I'd even be willing to pay a little extra for that option (I've funded other kickstarters where you could add on some of the extras after the fact).
Estimated Delivery: Jan 2012
Current Date: Jan 2014
I'm not trying to be a snarky Internet poster. This thing is two years late. What's the deal?
Any possibility of an update? Last time time we heard anything was July. :)
Beautiful. Looks great, sounds great, feels great.
Love the clip! Pacing is exactly right and the graphics are great. Cannot wait to see the whole movie.
The clip was SO GOOD! Even with my not-so-great computer speakers, it was wonderful to hear and see those comics creators! I'm really looking forward to the whole thing now. Great job, everyone!
Thank you so much for clarifying that!
Hey Laura! The book and everything else will go out with the DVD. Thanks for you patience. Finalizing our titles and credits this week and they are looking amazing!
You know, I know the DVDs haven't been created, and I have no problem with that. I can wait patiently ... but I'm just wondering. Has anyone received the books if they donated high enough? I haven't, so I'm just wondering if we're supposed to wait for the DVD to be created before the book will be delivered with it.
I and someone else commented on the previous updates, but in case you haven't seen it... in the new campaign, there's an option to get both the DVD and the HD download, which we didn't have on this one; is there a way we could pay the difference to get both instead of having to choose? I'd love to be able to get both the physical memento for my collection and the highest-quality video to watch.
Adding ALL the backers to the closing credits as a "thank you" is a wonderful idea. I'm glad you're adding this.
