If you’re familiar with the phrase “hurry up and wait”, you’ll get an idea what it’s like being the Fulfillment Department for Axanar Productions.
After pushing (and by “pushing” I mean alternately cajoling, begging, and [practically] threatening certain people within inches of their lives) for the PRELUDE to AXANAR Blu-ray/DVD content to be completed for the last several months, the finished product was finally delivered in early July (hallelujah!), and was immediately shipped off to the print production facility we use… at which point they told me to expect, as always, approximately a three-week window before our order would be ready to go.
Hmm. Pessimist that I am–when it comes to things being delivered “on time”–I planned on four weeks.
So, just over four weeks later, what do I find out? Those PRELUDE discs we’ve all been waiting for–some, more patiently than others 😉 –are finally shipping out from the factory. Today.
Which means the shipment of PRELUDE to AXANAR–full kits to international donors whose packages included a DVD or Blu-ray, and to retroactive package donors (whose purchases occurred long after the original Kickstarter, and are shipping in-total), and discs-only packages to those in the US who donated at levels including DVD/Blu-ray (the rest of whose items shipped long ago)–should commence late next week.
Believe me, I know it’s a long time in coming… but this is VERY good news, indeed. 🙂
Happy Friday, everyone… and Long Live Axanar!
