      The soul is a part of ones being that you cannot see. It can only be felt. The soul can also be in things not quite understood by mans philosophy. Something inside of my very being tells me that this film is going to have soul...But not only in the conventional sense. It's going to come from a influential place. A place where the woman who has created it is fearless, intuitive, and beautifully intelligent....It's going to come from a woman who is moved by life and everything it exemplifies....That's why I'm backing this project. The woman has Soul! Peace Nef...

      Creator Raven on September 18, 2011

      This is just one of those things you feel good about. I remember Nefertite from a very young age and she has kept true to that same spirit. True to herself. So, you know that anything she does is genuinely something she cares about because faking it is just not in her nature.

      Nefertite holds herself with pride & integrity. It's inevitable that these traits carry through into her work. I believe in her vision and will be a supporter in any way possible. I look forward to seeing "In The Morning" on the big screen!

      Creator bilal on September 13, 2011

      I decided to back this film because as a young male I was raised on the importance of learning from ones experience, trials and tribulations. I decided to back this film because of the passion and artistic talent shown in the trailer . I decided to back this film to see true talent emerge among sea of corporate squeals and explosions. I decided to back this film to bring "swagger" back to the big screen. I have decided, hope you do too~peace

      Nefertite Makeda Nguvu has always been very determined, focused, brilliant, caring, balanced, ahh just a wonderful daughter. She has always been called to do something special/different and has marched to the flow of the universe from the beginning unto this very day! I am proud to have been the vessel that she selected to bring her forth and I am even prouder to share what I have know from the very beginning that "Nefertite will be a world renown filmmaker and she will make us all proud" welcome to the ride you all!

      Nefertite represents a kindred and dynamic soul with supreme creative vision and a wealth of wisdom beyond her years. It is always exciting to share her excitement for her new projects which are always guaranteed to tap into the true inner-dwellings of our people who possess stories untold. It is with great honor and pleasure that I give my support to this film and I pray that it goes boldly forth and PROSPERS.

      I pledged to support this film, because I have been able to bear witness to Nefertite's passion for the Arts in general and Film in particular since Day 1. I know that her passion translates into poetic imagery, thoughtful characters and a drive that yields important, beautiful and much needed FINISHED PROJECTS. I am excited to be a part of this- my beautiful and talented sister's journey and I know that my contribution in her capable hands will result in a Masterpiece!!!!

      I pledged because I support this film to keep real independent film alive..Every major studio has an independent film division and those movies are hand selected among thousands of films every year. There are so many good films and filmmakers that do not get that far. In many cases this is a blessing in disguise. There are so many steps in the independent film ladder, and this is the true grass roots level where creative integrity cannot be compromised. This is where it all starts. I am also very proud to support a talented filmmaker Nefertite on this journey, one of many I am sure of it.

      Creator Kanika on September 7, 2011

      We pledged because we are ready to see authentic, bold, and honest depictions of relationships on screen. There has been a dearth of roles on screen that speak to what so many people of color experience who make real and honest attempts at love. We pledged because we are confident that Nefertiti's spirit, brilliance, knowledge, courage, and life experiences can illuminate love in a way that we can all be proud of, learn from, and grow! - Jua & Kanika Fluellen
