A little update as we hit the halfway mark
in the campaign.
Stuart is off taking walks around the City
and the neighboring countryside, his last chance to daydream on the script for
a spell. Meanwhile, we continue meeting
candidates for Eve, James and Cassie, and we’re talking to cinematographers,
considering production designers, just getting more specific about the choices
we’re making about each aspect of the film.
We’re also really riding a wave of momentum
from our trip to London, where people were all quite receptive. We can already say for sure that the
film will have excellent distribution in the UK. Of course, we want it to have excellent distribution the

continue to express our gratitude.
Our little film seemed an unlikely fantasy at first glance. As recently as six months ago, it still
seemed a long shot. For us,
Kickstarter, aptly named, turned the tide, the first domino in one of those mind-boggling
chains you occasionally see on the evening news. We’re excited you’ll be participating with us, too. Stuart’s
particularly keen to have you join us at the premieres, he’s determined those
be truly memorable nights.
Regardless, without you, whether Stuart’s
ever heard of it or not, we’d be Lost in La Mancha, so thank you.
