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.
