2,121 backers pledged $115,110 to help bring this project to life.

Trailer delayed till January 31st.


New Update: Due to some unfortunate circumstances with my girlfriend being in the hospital with severe complications, as well as job duties, I will have to delay the premiere of the trailer for a few weeks. I've set the new trailer release for Jan. 31st, which is two weeks past Jan 15th. I just have not had enough time between work and hospital visits to get this right, and I don't want to release it till It's right. Thanks for the patience, I'm sure you all understand.

      The documentary can wait, family can't. Good luck.

      Sorry to hear that, Jon. Wish her the best! You worry about stuff worth worrying about and do what you gotta do, man. I think Kickstarter backers should be used to unforeseen delays and TCOB (Takin' care of Business) by now.

      Thanks for letting us know

      I think I speak for every decent human being on here when I say "screw the documentary" for now. Certainly "screw the trailer". Just focus on the important things Jon. We know it'll be great. We know it'll be worth it. We will wait.

      My very best wishes to both of you.
