      I second that! Thank you all for your continued support and consideration. We're going big on this one, so an Oscar would be most appreciated. It's go big or go home...and...well....home is not an option! Thanks everyone-Love, Werley

      Thank you all for your kind words. They're greatly appreciated. I don't know if they give Oscars to movies made in garages, but if they do we'll try our best. Cheers!
