Dear All

The support from everyone on kickstarter for THE COMMENTATOR has caught on. Thank you.  We initially thought we would have a smaller film with a crew of 5.  Then we did the kickstarter and the idea grew and we ended with more than a 35 person crew on the day of the race.  We had 17 cameras covering the Paris Roubaix and Jorgen Leth.

Everyone gave a lot of themselves to accomplish getting a story that is in honor of the race and the rest of the crew involved.  I have decided that we need to take a lot longer than what are initial targets were.  I believe we may have something very special to offer.  

We are going to take due time with the post work. We have our work ahead of us. 

I hope to have it finished by next April. 

 It is our intention to reward all the items we have promised.

I will make monthly updates from now on.

Thank you for your patience.
