WE REACHED OUR GOAL !!!!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to all of our donors and supporters for helping us to reach our goal. It takes a crowd to fund a film...and you are truly a wonderful crowd. You have my everlasting gratitude and appreciation.

We are now planing our trip to Brazil in April, and then to Asia and Europe in May. You will all be with us in spirit. We will keep you posted as to our travels and travails as we go off to meet more Clooneys and more voice actors around the world. Wish us the very best...and thank you so much again.
