Hello there Kickstarter supporters.  We know it's been a long time since you've heard from us, but we have been working diligently on the film and wanted to let you know that last night we submitted a first draft to the Seattle International Film Festival.  Over the next few weeks we will be fine tuning it to get it to its final version.  We are very happy with how it's turned out.  There is no guarantee we will get into SIFF, but we are hoping we do because we would love to share this film with the local community.  If not, we plan on submitting it to other festivals, comic events and eventually will upload it online. Eventually we will put together a DVD, with extras and send them out, but please be patient with us on that as this will require a lot of time to put this together . 

In the meantime, if you would like to follow us on Facebook for updates, this is the link:

And here's the official website:

Thanks again for your support!
