It takes no stretch of the imagination to recognize filmmaking as a bold pursuit and for those of us making it, we've made the commitment in our belief that it is a noble one. So with that said, we want to thank you in advance for your pledges, and thus, contributions to that pursuit!

Take the time to consider that through your generous pledge, not only are you supporting the telling of a timely and significant story, but also making an investment in the careers of every person in the crew.

Be they your family, friend, or perhaps a newly discovered talent, you're making a significant contribution to the fulfillment of all of their hopes and aspirations. For this, we can't thank you enough, and leave you with only one thought - the thought we hope everyone who sees this film leaves with:

"You Are More Powerful Than You Know"

Risks and challenges

"Murphy is a filmmaker"

Making movies can be as difficult and unpredictable as they are rewarding, particularly with an ambitious project such as this. Some obstacles we may encounter along production can be accounted to unforeseen circumstances such as sudden schedule conflicts, abrupt equipment failures, and in our case as student filmmakers, the lack of time as we work on the rest of the requirements of our degrees!

We've accounted for all those obstacles as best we can in scheduling the delivery of your rewards, including the film itself, but should Murphy rear his ugly head and jeopardize said deliveries, you'll be the first to know.
