I wanted to thank everyone for supporting 'The Carousel.' We launched this campaign January 8th. 30 days and 76 backers later, this has been the most support I've ever received for any project of mine. People I know, love and even complete strangers shared, pledged and made this campaign what it is today - successful. 

Personally, I want to thank my mother+father (Donna and Lorenzo Napolitano), my lovely wife Kayleigh (my biggest supporter), my family and friends - thank you all for continuing to spread the word about this campaign from start to finish. 

Thank you to Cortlandt Hull, Anne Serling, Ty Morin, Christopher Bell, Derik Wingo, Mitch Horowitz, Slamdance Film Festival, Big Sky Documentary Film Festival, Megan (Kickstarter) and Courtney Meyer for covering, sharing this campaign over and over again. It made such a big difference and it shows.

Ah Hai, Matthew A Stewart and Ryan - I am forever grateful for your generous support. Thank you for playing such a big part in making this campaign successful! I'm unbelievably lucky to have such support.     

This is the end of the campaign but the start of something great. We'll be filming the rest of 'The Carousel' over the next few months. I can't wait to keep you all up-to-date during the process. To follow the film (besides on Kickstarter), please see here:

Thank you again everyone! If you have any questions or concerns, please message me or send an email to
