More on the Lullaby Saga
Have you gotten a refund?
The Lullaby saga continues…
This week a number of people who backed the Kickstarter for a Lullaby film have gotten refunds. This is six years after the campaign in 2016. I’d no idea this was possible, but they received the refunds with the following message:
We’re reaching out with regard to your support of the Chuck Palahniuk's Lullaby project. We’re sorry that this hasn’t been a great experience for you, and appreciate that you’ve tried to open a discourse about the project’s progress.
As we looked over what happened, we’ve also noticed that this creator has decided to end your relationship by refunding your pledge. This means that both you and the creator can walk away with no obligations to one another. Since only backers to a project are allowed to leave comments, it also means you will no longer be able to comment or read backer-only updates to this project. All comments you had left prior to the refund, however, will remain visible and on the record, and comments made after the refund was issued have been deleted. We hope the creator will continue working to complete their project, and that the backer community will continue to have a dialogue with them about its progress.
Our apologies that this wasn’t a positive experience, and if there is anything that we can do to improve the situation, please let us know. We hope that you’ll continue to support future projects that you’re excited about, and are open to any feedback that you might have.
Thank you for your understanding,
Kickstarter Trust & Safety
I’m a little flummoxed….
This catches me by surprise. I’ve no idea where the film development stands, but if you’re a backer you might look into it. I sincerely hope that Andy Mingo and his company, Mind Pollen, are making progress, but I’ve contributed books and screenwriting to the effort and still don’t know where things stand.
If you want to contact Kickstarter regarding this matter, this seems to be the link.
Then again, that link seems to be just to Kickstarter in general. Does anyone have any insights?
