Likely the next film is Billy's Balloon and after that I could see him lumping together or splitting into two the other four films given their lack of relative fame, name dropping in the initial post, and as you mentioned runtime.

bad news everyone, i've just learned that kickstarter displays all pledges in vietnamese currency :( which means so far we've actually only raised approximately US $4.67 :( oh man we have so far to go. i had no idea kickstarter was based in southeast asia :(

but i will honor the stretch goals anyway, which means # 3 has just been unlocked and another thing is being added to the blu-ray! but this time i can't actually publicly announce what it is! sorry this one has to remain a surprise, you'll just have to trust me! here is another sentence that ends in an exclamation point!

the 4th mystery item to be added to the disc will be unlocked (and next time revealed, i promise) at $125k ~ thanks everyone and let's continue to get the word out

I pledged $24 for the blu-ray. Hoping this clears $125k soon.

It's likely the "secret thing that cannot be announced" is The Simpsons gag, right?

That's what I'm assuming since that's the only old thing that might have funny rights stuff with it.

The campaign just hit $150K and Wisdom Teeth has now been added to the Blu-ray as a result. I've also updated the first post of this thread to show DVD availability for Hertzfeldt's entire filmography, which will give a feel for how close this is to becoming a "complete works" set (although donations have slowed down recently to the point that it might only hit one or two more stretch goals).

hey everyone! we've just sailed past $150,000 and as punishment WISDOM TEETH will now be added to the blu-ray! i'm so sorry about this

stretch goal # 6 and the next short film on the disc is set for $175,000! with only 8 days to go, we're gonna need everyone's help to get there :<>

please remind your deadbeat friends, this is their very last week to sign up for a blu-ray before there's only rare, overpriced copies available on e-bay from weird basement dwellers with wet hands and lingering stares who refer to things as "VG+ condition." this collection will never be available at their local walmart unless i guess someone walks inside the walmart with a copy and just sort of leaves it on the floor

That's so breathtakingly close that he should at least include the stray early films in SD (since they've already come out of DVD). C'mon Don, don't make us harm that adorable cat!

Don't know why I learned about this just today. Will definitely back it.

I just realized that I have wet hands and a lingering stare, and went ahead and set up another account in order to pledge again. It never hurts to have a safety copy. And it's still only $20 for the Blu-ray despite the content being much richer now than when the campaign started.

I pledged $140 for the print. Hopefully, regardless of the final amount, he tries to get the remaining shorts on there. For just over $40k, Arrow managed to restore Borowczyk's Goto plus 7 additional shorts so I'm not convinced that it takes $25k to restore the 5 minute Wisdom Teeth alone. Though I'll concede that some of that will inevitably go towards production costs of the Blu-Ray and rewards.

Anybody else notice that he's already sold more than 3000 copies of the blu-ray through this campaign alone? I wonder how Twilight Time feels about that.

Twilight Time could sell 3000 copies of all of their releases if they priced them at $20.

On top of funding the bluray, and maybe more importantly, your $ will go towards funding our future films, with no distributors or third parties between us.

Aside from restoration and production, I'd say this is where the rest of the money is going, and that the $25,000 gap between each stretch goal is just to drive that amount higher, rather than necessarily needing $25,000 to restore each short. But maybe he's had the negatives propping up that dodgy leg on his work bench for the last decade.

Arrow is a farily big and experienced label/distributor with the know-how, connections and infrastructure to carry out these things. And surely there were additional sources for funding outside Kickstarter, no? This here is essentialy just one guy with his own filmography. Plus, that's not really how Kickstarter stretch goals work, that $25k also has to cover all the additional rewards. And it's always better to ask for more money to make sure you can actually fulfill all the promises and not run out of money while doing it. There are plenty of Kickstarter projects that have overpromised and underdelivered.

From what I understand, a portion of the Kickstarter funding is going to be allocated to the production of future animated projects, as well.

Sent in my pledge. Apparently shipping costs ($14 in my case) are also counted towards the goal. Didn't know that before as my previous Kickstarter backings have been for digital rewards (video games Yooka-Laylee and Shenmue III), but it just confirms my earlier point: $25k pledged doesn't mean it is a $25k that can completely go towards the restorations. That being said, I too hope the pledged money will be enough to cover the inclusion of even more shorts than currently promised.

hey hey we've just rocketed past $175k which means please welcome student film LILY AND JIM to the blu-ray!

we're in the final 72 hours of the fundraiser now and y'all have blown the doors off this campaign. this campaign has no doors. breezes fly freely throughout the campaign and strange cats wander in and out.

i'm not actually sure how many additional things we can realistically fit onto this disc at this point so i don't want to introduce a final stretch goal just yet until i do some investigating! but rest assured if we actually hit $200k in these final hours, we'll be fancying up the release one last time in some way. for instance, i am already pleased to announce that the discs will now be scented, and flavored blurayberry.

Oh c'mon Don, the remaining films only come to 15 minutes in total!

Just under 24 hours left and the campaign has already stormed through the $200K mark. If this doesn't become a "complete works" set, I'm going to start taking hostages.

Is there any reason it couldn't include those?
