    This is looking great. It’s just like how you told me it would be back in 02! Few people have the kind of drive you do to make a dream a reality. I tip my hat brother!

      Thanks Joe! That means alot coming from you. Still a long ways to go but having some shots in hand and a teaser to raise funds with is feeling pretty good. Feel free to share this around. . . . and stay tuned. I’m hoping something breaks soon.

  3. I’m so glad this project is still moving forward. Looking forward to seeing it!

      Thanks for the encouragement Jeri! Knowing friends like you are watching helps to keep things alive. . .that and an occasional grant. Hopefully with the new teaser, some shots completed and a new producer we can start raising some serious production funds. Feel free to send any wealthy potential patrons my way. 🙂
