Long experience with crowdfunders meant that I mentally translated "late 2018" to "some time in 2019" when I made my pledge two and a half years ago, so I'm not fussed.

And I'm even less fussed about getting seven BDs instead of five.
I really wish I had backed this project.
Same. I've only backed Don Hertzfeldt's Kickstarter which was remarkably well organized and responsive. I think it spoiled me on the experience.

I was able to purchase the Hertzfeldt Blu-ray later on, I sure hope its the same with the Svankmajer.

Edward LoRusso's latest Kickstarter project is for a DVD-R of the 1923 Marion Davies film Little Old New York. The project is already fully funded so will definitely happen but if you want a more polished released it apparently is also going to get a pressed version later on the year through Undercrank Productions.

Factory 25 is kickstarting a restoration and release of Alex Rockwell's In the Soup.
A Blu-ray.com member sez the $100 Blu-ray from the project that raised ~$90,000 is unbelievably just a BD-R

There's going to be a crowdfunding campaign for the restoration of Dennis Hopper's Out of the Blue. Which I will almost certainly contribute to, but it's a shame that it couldn't be done conventionally seeing as The Last Movie just has. You'd think at least one of the labels would be interested.

Thank you for highlighting that Professor Wagstaff as it would have passed me by without your mention! This seems like a good way to get some of the less high profile titles of D'Amato and Fulci out on disc, by judging demand and getting people to pre-fund it. That £100,000 "mystery film in 2K" stretch goal seems so ambitious that it might be intended as a joke though!

I literally went through his good, 35mm period a day ago, and I'll happily support him. Sad to see he went downhill after Henry Fool...

Meanwhile was good and his Fool sequels are worth the while.

I watched Book of Life and have The Girl from Monday and No Such Thing lined up. Anyway I wish he wouldn't charge so much for shipping, it makes getting the Blu-ray really expensive...

The goals for this have just been amended, with now both films included for the lowest goal and the 'stretch' goal amounts reduced, so it seems like a more attractive prospect now.

Grasshopper posted it in their thread, but figured it's worth a cross-post.

Blake Williams' 3D film Prototype has an Indigogo page up for a region-free 3D BD release
