NEW Official Website and Migrating to BackerKit

Posted by Snowgum Films (Creator)

Greetings all!

Today we’re commencing the migration from Kickstarter to BackerKit. As many of you are aware Kickstarter was only portion of our funding drive, and in order to get everyone into a unified database and keep organised – we’ll need to move to BackerKit. This will help with shipping, combining pledges, keeping contact details updated, crediting you correctly, making sure we get you the *right* versions of everything, and allow greater customisation of your pledge materials.

Shortly after this email you will receive an invitation to join. Your account and details have already been migrated, you just need to log in and confirm that everything is correct and present. Unlike Kickstarter, you will be able to log in and update all your details at any time.

If you’ve not used BackerKit before – it’s great. We’ve already pushed our Wave III supporters through to great success. Now it’s time for you guys and Wave I to join them. :)

If you don’t receive that BackerKit email by the end of the day, please email us at:

So what about Kickstarter updates, what happens to those?

Great question! To continue providing the latest news to those who aren’t on our social media channels – we’ve built this little puppy:

That’s right! We finally have an official TROLL BRIDGE website! And boy is it chock full of content and works - you’re absolutely gonna love this thing! Our updates will now be fed through the News section on that site – once you have confirmed you details on BackerKit, your email will automatically go onto our newsletter list to ensure you don’t miss anything posted.

The website will now be our central core to all things Troll Bridge. You can even access your BackerKit account from it.

For us, the site also serves as a portfolio and press-kit. This will be instrumental in helping us obtain that last little bit of volunteer help we need, in order to tie a bow on the production. Please don’t be shy in sharing it – it will actually get the film built quicker.


So why are we doing this again?

To get organised we need to know your details for shipping and we need a unified portal to communicate with you. We need all those things, because, it’s getting to the point that knowing those things is becoming important. If you know what I mean. #cryptic

If you experience any sort of issue, of any kind, please - please let us know immediately on so we can fix it. Today is a big day for us, so we absolutely want to make sure we get it right for you.

Kind regards,

Daniel & Ahren

      My mistake! For some reason I read Update #13 as being recent on the new website ("Shifting release date") when in fact that was from September 2013. The problems of half reading something.

      February? Did we say February - I hope we didn't, but things are strange on Troll Bridge time. :)

      No, unfortunately we won't make February. We have a date in mind for this year, but it's not quiet that early. We'll announce the actual date only when we're 100% sure we'll nail it - we don't want a repeat performance in disappointing everyone.

      Is the February date mentioned in a recent update still accurate? Getting very excited now :)

      Hi Louise,

      No - of course you aren't forfeiting anything - a deal is a deal. :)

      The only information BackerKit is storing on our behalf are your order items, your name, email, and your postal address (that last one you will need to enter yourself). We need to be clear that BackerKit in our instance - is only being used to streamline shipping. No credit card or payment details are stored unless you opt to change your order and enter those details yourself.

      If you still have privacy concerns, just let me know and we'll keep you on an Excel sheet instead. No worries. :) Thanks Louise!

      I must admit I'm not very happy with this.

      I appreciate that it's easier for you but I use Kickstarter and have chosen to trust it with my personal details, being moved to website I have never heard of without my permission and being asked to provide details through it, is not what I agreed to... and if it were anyone else I would not even consider it.

      If I choose not to migrate, do I forfeit the backing reward?
