The Special Edition (SE) started as a relatively modest, upper-tier promise, made to only 25 people, in our first Kickstarter campaign back in May 2010.
Over the years (gulp), the film grew in many ways - ambition, scope, success, reach - and the SE felt like it had to keep in step. It couldn’t simply be a collection of raw footage, some deleted scenes. It needed, and we wanted it, to be much more. But mostly, the SE needed to do justice to the time, support, money and trust that those early backers invested in us back in 2010.
We wanted it to be good...really good...like Criterion-type of good.
