End of the Year Update on Production and Rewards

The end of the year is a time to celebrate, and to bring things full circle. So we thought we would write you to catch you up on the progress of the movie, and to take care of some of the last bits of reward business, before 2013 comes to a close.

The year since our Kickstarter campaign ended has been incredibly productive. We are so happy to be able to report to you that we've completed the principal photography for The 78 Project on schedule and on budget (which means the movie is completely shot,) and that it is filled with momentous recordings and experiences. At this point editing is done, and we are beginning the process of finalizing sound as we apply for festivals for the early spring. We can't wait to share the completed film with you, and want to thank you again so much for all of your support in making this possible. Which brings us to an update on your rewards. Some of the items are still pending, and we can tell you now when you can expect them.

Screening tickets and pre-release DVDs are on track to be fulfilled Summer 2014, after the movie has been through the final finishing stages.

T-shirts are hot off the screenprinting presses and on their way to you now. They should arrive before the end of the month. Memorabilia sets (the $78 level) and test acetates will be next, by the end of January. And we'll be reaching out to all of you whose names will be in the credits of the movie, as well as our 78 recording and 78 DJ folks, individually to make arrangements right after the new year.

Thank you so much for your patience and continued support! We look forward to giving you more exciting updates in the new year. We wish you and your loved ones a very happy holiday!
