      So when realistically can we see our DVDs or to be more up-to-date, blurays?

      Thanks.

      Hi Kevin,

      After receiving yet another update about multiple showings of the film that I, as a backer, have still not seen on the DVD I backed, I've grown tired of waiting. Can you please refund my pledge?

      Thanks,

      Sean

      When will your backers get DVDs? I have yet to receive the film which was supposed to come on DVD "late spring of 2011."

      Kevin, is Richard willing to talk about it for the film? He's been reluctant to talk to anyone in the past about it. It'd be nice to hear his end of the story but regardless it'll be great to have the story told. Good luck!

      A wonderful initiative, Kevin! I've contacted Amid Amidi at Cartoon Brew and wrote him about your campaign. Pretty much the whole animation industry visits his website every day, so I'm sure the Brew readers would be willing to help you out. Good luck!

      The "Recobbled Cut" is a very admirable work. I'm in touch with its creator, Garrett Gilchrist, and he's provided me with a lot of unique, rare footage of the film's production.

      Feel free to tell your fellow animators about this! Every dollar counts.

      Thanks again!

      :)

      Hi, let the world know about what happened to Richard and his masterpiece. I feel sorry for him and I hope he gets over it, or better yet, start a new masterpiece, or even better: Finish the Thief and the Cobbler. I am an animator myself and I know how much hard work is needed to pull of something of this magnitude. I can recommend seeing the Thief and the Cobbler - Recobbled version. (use a popular search engine to find it - you know what to do).
