FAQ: Edgar Allan Poe's Murder Mystery Dinner Party
For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

Why does making a series cost so much??

Our script is the same length as a full-length film, and very low-budget films usually cost a minimum of $100,000 to produce. Location, paying actors and crew (not to mention feeding them!), gathering props and costumes all adds up very quickly. We are trying to produce this series for the absolute bare minimum. The more money we make past our goal, the better we’ll be able to make the show. And don’t forget kickstarter fees and perks eat up 10% of our earnings once we’ve earned it! And if we don’t make our goal, we won’t get any money at all, and all of our dreams will be crushed forever.

What if one of your actors books another job and can’t be in it?

That is always a possibility, but we are going to try our best to make sure we schedule our dinner party so that everyone can be there.

Where and when will you shoot?

If all goes as planned, we’ll be shooting in April or May at a super awesome house with secret passageways and lots of fun nooks and crannies.

When will the show be out?

It’s hard to say for sure, but we’d love to have it up by the end of the summer.

There will definitely be ravens. Don't tell Lenore. - e. poe

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
https://poeparty.backerkit.com/

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
