I'm Fine, Thanks

This new movie looks interesting.


And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know.

Here it is almost Sept 2012 and I don't recall seeing it advertised in the theaters. Sounds like the old "live your dreams" message.

But what really gained attention was his Kickstarter fundraising of nearly 4500 backers and over $100K to film the documentary.
I'm Fine, Thanks by Crank Tank Studios — Kickstarter

I'm Fine, Thanks is a new, feature-length documentary about complacency. It's a collection of stories about life, the choices we all make, and the paths we ultimately decide to follow.
We examine the factors that motivate and drive our major life choices. And, most importantly, whether or not the path we follow through life - and the habits we form based on that path - are truly connected with who we really are as individuals.
This is a movie about the moment people realize the life they're living is not the life that's true to their heart... and, as a result, what they decide to do about it!
One of the people he interviewed is Pat Flynn of, one of the top two or three professional personal-finance bloggers.
“I’m Fine, Thanks”

I don't think it'll ever get picked up for release by documentary distributors, let alone Hollywood, but it's a shining star of how Kickstarter is supposed to work. Even better, it shows how entrepreneurs can use their blogs to generate a living wage and lead the life they'd like to live.

Old message, sure, and over the last five years it's become more achievable with less capital than ever before.

I'm interested, but I don't see how I can view or buy it. I found a pledge campaign where I could have bought an HD download, but it seem they met (exceeded) their goal and you can no longer buy it there. I checked the pledge site, the studio site & the studio FB site. Any idea how I can see the full documentary, it does look interesting to me?
