Update from the Screening Tour

Posted by Douglas Wilson (Creator)

Dear Kickstarter backers, the image above would not have happened without your support. THANK YOU for your belief in the film before anyone else.

NYC World Premiere
It has been a busy few weeks since the world premiere of the film in New York City! The film has screened in six different cities to sold out crowds and an enthusiastic response. The world premiere at the SVA Theatre went fantastically well. There were 400 people in attendance and the Q&A moderated by Steven Heller was great. We had people travel from as far away as Ohio, Florida, and Missouri to see the film.

People Like the Film!
The response to the film has been overwhelmingly positive and we are so excited that people are loving the film as much as we love it. Many people have been surprised at the funny and charming characters that make up our film and we couldn't be more proud.

Screenings and DVD Release

In the coming months, the film will be screened all over the world. Hopefully, it will come to a city near you. For those who live where the film will not screen, DVDs will be released in the early summer. And because you believed in the film before anyone else, Kickstarter backers will be the first to receive the DVDs when they are released!
