Halfway Point

Dear Backers,

Thank you so, so much for contributing. It's been thrilling to see such an outpouring of support for Kevin!

Check out the great writeup we just got in Filmmaker Magazine (start most of the way down at "Perhaps the greatest short doc revelation..."). They're catching on to Kevin's magic!

We're exactly 1/2 through our campaign, so emailing/facebooking/tweeting the Kickstarter link to friends who you think might be inspired by Kevin's story would be the hugest help right now.

Also, here's an exclusive look at something we just put together and won't be posting anywhere else: a sneak glimpse of what the comeback tour you've funded will look like! Please enjoy Kevin's tearful-happy live performance after our premiere screening @ SXSW.

Much love,
Jay and Kevin
