Crew United! 11 more days! Full Steve ahead!
There are a number of exciting things to report...
First and foremost, we'd like to welcome back our favorite producer, Nick Fitzhugh (sitting), from his latest National Geographic supported film in Africa.
We met with our Guatemalan producer Julio Bernard in Baltimore to review the logistics of our shoot in August and listened to ghost stories about Maximón and the Shamans in his temples.
We want to send a heartfelt thank you to all of you for your support and encouragement. We can not do this without you. Although we are on track for success, we need to keep up the momentum to achieve our goal by July 7th.
- Like us on Facebook and share our posts.
- Please retweet us every day.
- Pick five people and email our KS link (don't spam), and ask those five people to share it with five of their friends.
If you haven't given yet and want to, the time is now. If you have given and want to give more, the time is now.
As a small bonus for all your support, we've created a Behind The Scenes video so that you can join in the fun we have behind the camera.
Chris, Ian, Nick, Rob, Matt, & Nathan
