I've failed in my attempts to "stretch" my initial pledge. The instructions above don't correspond to what I see on screen. I give up.

Kickstarter isn't intuitive, but David's instructions worked for me – even on a ten-year old laptop.

Sounds like we all worked it out in the end :-)

David, I didn't see any of the screens as above. but I do believe I correctly added the stretch goal. Maybe I logged into the secret senior citizen screens?

A bit late to the party. Just contributed to tier 2, as well as the Sarah's laughter add on.
Thanks

FYI - if you click on "Manage Your Pledge" in other areas of the Kickstarter site, you'd think you'd end up in the same place as the instructions earlier, but you won't. You have to follow David's instructions from the very first step - only click on "Manage Your Pledge" after hovering over your tier on the right side of the main project page and seeing it turn into a blue "Manage Your Pledge" button. If you click on the "Manage Your Pledge" button at the top of the project page, or from your account page, you won't get to the same screens.

Kickstarter has unbelievably terrible UX. And it may be a different experience again on a phone or tablet. Ugh.

But once you get through it, more Goldsmith! Yay!!

Thanks to those chipping in to help us cut through Kickstarter's BS!!

Just a quick note to let you know that a few updates have been posted re. session dates and progress on the Bar Mitzvah reconstruction (you can hear some rough demos of the first two cues):

Thanks, again, folks - we're only a breath away from fully funding the "Sarah's Laughter" stretch!!

More cues, tomorrow...

I'd wait for confirmation from Leigh, but this Stretch Goal looks funded to me.

Whether so or just not yet, I'm glad everyone ran the gauntlet that is Kickstarter's process!

I thought i had a pledged but I’m wondering whether something went wrong. Could someone check? I definitely want to support this and am happy to support the stretch goal.

Hi Richard,

Thanks for flagging - I checked the backers report, and nothing showing up for Richard May, if this is of any use(?)


Thanks for checking, looks like I didn’t finish my pledge first time around. Now completed, including the stretch goal of course!

Quick question re: the stretch goal. Determining my initial pledge -- does choosing one of the "producer" credits count now for both scores? Or only the one that is the initial goal? Not a huge deal, but curious. Either way, looking forward to contributing!

I think I answered this above (and Leigh confirmed it was accurate):

EDIT: I also just confirmed with Leigh that the additional £3 Stretch Goal add-on alone will extend EACH tier's perks to include BOTH scores! That is, if you go for the £50 tier which gets you an Associate Producer credit and a copy of the complete musical score in PDF format... for £53 instead you get copies of BOTH complete scores in PDF format, plus the Associate Producer credit on both! Same goes for the top tier of £100... £100 gets you access to the recording session for "The Bar Mitzvah of Major Orlovsky" but £103 gets you access to the recording session for BOTH "The Bar Mitzvah of Major Orlovsky" AND "Sarah's Laughter"! It's practically Buy One Get One Free at that point...

So those of you who were at Tier 1, you can just straightforwardly double your contribution to basically get twice as much music... or you might want to consider going up to a higher tier if you care about the accompanying perks, because if the "Sarah's Laughter" stretch goal is successful (and it certainly looks like it will be), you are getting a shockingly good bargain (since you don't have to double your giving amount at those tiers in order to get double the perks).

(Hope I didn't explain that in too confusing a fashion.)

Basically, each level pledged flat is for the Major Orlovsky score. Adding the £3/$4-ish above any particular level scores you Sarah's Laughter as well.

Thank you both, Yavar and Lorien. Makes perfect sense now!

KS is complete mess... I guess it might be easier just to paypal Leigh some funds directly next time smile

I will back this project, of course. Just have to get around to it; I see it's already funded. So I just add on top of that.

Already funded, stretch goal of additional £800 achieved to record second score "Sarah's Laughter", and so far it’s even an additional £417 above that! So it's all gravy at this point, which Leigh said will entirely apply to the next Kickstarter (reducing the initial goal for it), after all expenses of this one are taken care of. But of course anyone pledging during the remaining two weeks of this Kickstarter gets their lossless copy of the music next month, in advance of the general public! So any interested Goldsmith fans should definitely get in on the ground floor...

I don't know why Kickstarter is so confusing, but with two days to go, this has cleared the stretch goal by about £900 (about $1,100), right? I knew the stretch goal had been comfortably reached, just nice to see this sort of enthusiasm.

Great this is funded and a good start on the next one hopefully.

However, you cant help overlook that yes, it's been funded, but only by 144 people.
Considering the first pledge is just £3. Only 144 people can find a minimum of £3 ?

That's kinda depressing

But other than that, congrats on getting funded. Hope the recording sessions go well and look forward to both the scores and future kickstarters.
