We have a quick update today from the documentary producers. As hinted at in their last update, backers aren’t being ignored in all the theatrical hoopla. The latest Indiegogo backer update sent out today has good news for those us itching to see the final product.
Film is done and handed off to distributor
You’ve been waiting patiently, and we’re proud to finally share that as of last week, the film is COMPLETELY DONE, and handed off to our distributors over at Shout! Studios.
Sneak preview stream for backers
The early backer stream of the film will debut worldwide on Thursday, April 25th at 9:09pm EST. Eligible backers will be able to stream it from home or on your mobile devices as many times as you like for the following 99 hours (which works out to being a little over 4 days).
Full access and disc details coming after theatrical
As the team explains, you’ll get full unrestricted access once the home video releases are done, after the theatrical release.
The idea behind this reward was to give backers a sneak peak at the movie before the general public could see it in theaters, hence the limited time window. Of course, you’ll still have many more chances to watch it at your leisure when your DVD/Blu-ray combo set ships (stay tuned for details on that AFTER our theatrical release!).
In case you’re wondering if you’re eligible, the team sent along details on the availability: backers who selected a bundled reward (most packages $15 and up, but not including standalone merchandise), and those rewards which offered access to the ‘Digital Stream.’
In addition, they will be adding the online stream as a bonus to folks who pre-ordered the Blu-Ray/DVD combo package as a thank you for the support.
Instructions on how to access stream coming soon
The team says they will be sending detailed instructions soon on how to access the backer stream preview. NOTE: access will be sent only to the email address on file with your backer order.
