We hope you are well.
The STANLEY MARCUS team is excited for what 2014 has in store for the project. We had a very successful trip to Europe last May. The production was possible due to the generous contributions of our Kickstarter Backers....THANK YOU!
Lufthansa provided the travel arrangements as our European production sponsor. Each of the six flights on the 3-city tour provided the best service along with stress free travel. We tip our hats to the employees of Lufthansa airlines for making this possible and taking such great care of our team.
Several other individuals and organizations stepped up as individual interview sponsors (seen in the credits of the preview below - thank you). The production and trip went better than we could have imagined.
Below is a preview of the interviews conducted during the European production:
To keep costs to a minimum we traveled with 4 crew members performing multiple roles. We partnered with production houses along the way for our equipment. In Paris, PhotoCineRent; in Florence, Ecoframes; in Milan, EXIT SRL. We also had amazing support from past friends and new ones in each of our stops. A special thank you to Camille Semprez and David Crosnier in Paris; Tommaso Carli in Florence; and Ivan Genasi in Milan.
We have several developments taking place with the project. As our journey unfolds we know that getting this project 100% correct is critical. As many of you know, Mr. Stanley's standards were often quoted as "I have the simplest taste; I am always satisfied with the best." Our intention is to deliver just that, the BEST!
As we continue working on the project we would love feedback from our Backers. Also, we have additional links that can be sent highlighting interviews and experiences from our production. If you care to see additional content, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are eager to bring Mr. Stanley's story to you. Thank you for helping make our vision a reality.

We hope this update finds you well.
Below is a link from our first full day in Paris. We were shooting b-roll at the Givenchy and Yves Saint Laurent fashion houses. While on location we assisted the Yves Saint Laurent delivery driver from having an embarrassing accident.
