From Bedrooms To Billions Perks

Post by Dave_E » Tue Feb 10, 2015 8:34 pm

Did anyone else donate money to the From Bedrooms To Billions project and not get their perks?

I was meant to receive one of the genuine Elite badges in return for, I think, a £400 donation.

So far I've been waiting over 18 months and the only thing I received was the DVD which was just sent alone, non-recorded, in a padded envelope just before Xmas.

My e-mails to the filmmakers have not been answered.

I think it's a bit rich that they took all of this money and still haven't sent out what people paid for. I'd be interested to hear if I'm alone or not.

I bought a DVD from them which arrived, like yours, in a case in a padded envelope - I initially thought you meant just the disk in an envelope. :) They also gave me access to a download/stream, though I'm unlikely to use it.

My impression was that they were a bit stressed. I had to e-mail them because their form on the website didn't appear to do anything useful. :(

In return for a favour I did for Anthony, (supplied him with 2 mint in the box beebs) I was supposed to get my name in the end credits but alas I do not appear :roll:

This is why I will never contribute to a kickstarter type thing.

Still, for a bit of light relief:

Can I suggest that anyone with an unresolved grievance against the Bedrooms people make suitably calm and factual negative comments on their YouTube videos? They ought to respond to bad publicity, and ought to realise that their reputation is important.

I received an e-mail update from them today, even though I wasn't a backer on either Indiegogo or Kickstarter. The newsletter is also up on their site.
