I supported the kickstarter for this film and while I enjoyed it very much, they haven't actually fulfilled the promise that was given at my level (unless I'm being stupid which is a possibility). I have tried contacting them (on kickstarter through comments and a message and also at the inhabitfilm.com contact page) but have had no response so far which is frustrating although maybe it's because they are so busy with the release and so on. I hope so but I'm left feeling a bit flat. Below are my main gripes. I write these not (just) to whinge and moan but also to see if anyone else has experienced this sort of issue.
I have an email from when I supported the project outlining my rewards as follows:
SPECIAL EDITION DVD: you will receive a signed hard copy of the DVD including (I have the dvd but it is not signed. No biggie but it is not as advertised)
3 hours of extended footage from the site tours! (from what I can see there are just under 55 minutes of additional footage, not 3 hours. This is my main gripe as this is the reason I supported at the level that I did)
+ a digital copy (I have this. Yay)
+ hi-res photos. (Could not find these)
Thank you for the support!
Dec 2014 (Late but this was an estimate so whatever. happy to wait for a better product)
Also, unless there is footage from a site tour in my missing 2 hours, putting Geoff Lawton's name on this seems a bit much. I think it was about 15 seconds of him talking with agricultural footage in the background. I was assuming (my bad I guess) that there'd be a bit of footage with him talking about and showing us Zaytuna farm or other projects he's been involved in.
Am I really being a dummy or have others had a similar experience?
As it stands currently, I would recommend the film but probably won't support another kickstarter for these guys and will just wait until a release and get the film for $8 instead of $50.
