Judging by the review on the IMDB, it's a great movie with lots of Shearers in it.

I can't find any of the Shearers but I guess they are there somewhere among the throngs.....

Marion trumps the Shearers. I'm in.

Thanks for doing this.

Hopefully this can become an annual or semi-annual event.

You need to add some lower tier options. I'm strapped at the moment and don't care about about a DVD-r of it but I would throw you $1 to $10 if given the option. probably leaving a lot on the table jumping right in at $25.

Not sure what you mean. I don't believe there's a minimum donation, only for the "reward."

The only option is $25, There are no other options.

If I want to give you anything over or under $25 I can't.

Ahh never mind I see kicstarter has changed the donation page. You should still add a $1 tier on the main page that just says "our thanks" or something along those lines. This is the way it was handled in the past and the way most still do it.

I went in, not logged in, and the BACK THIS PROJECT takes you to a contribution page. $1 is minimum. $25 minimum for reward, but any amount over $1 is accepted, and you get choose whether you want the reward or not at the $25 level. Those are the only choices I see. Seems to work fine.

Someone just pledged $10.

It was me. I wanted to support the project but didn't need the DVD (I've already seen the film, at LoC). :)

I was just demonstrating that a pledge didn't have to be $25. Did you hum a score to yourself when you watched it, Ben? :)

Ed,

:? Can I send you a check in the mail? That's about what I'm limited to right now. Sounds like things are coming along great! Will start moving tomorrow. Don't expect to be fully out of here until the 22nd.

Ed,

:o Yes, I'm only moving a few blocks from where I am at now. How do I make out the check? Do you still have my E-mail address? It hasn't changed any.
