Happy New Year

Jeff here. 2012 has arrived. Generally when the new year comes around I'm just grateful that I've managed to go another twelve months without being mauled by a mule deer.

This new year is different. I (and Drew and Stacy and a bunch of Bolivian kids) get to look back at 2011 with fond memories and a big smile. We did something very cool and very special and assuming we can get past the pesky hurdles of creativity and logistics, we'll even be able to prove it when we manage to get our production out from the editing bay. 

The project succeeded beyond what we'd hoped and the experience can hardly be described without resorting to hyperbole and overwrought exclamation marks. So I'll leave it at this:

Thank you. Thank you for giving us something to be proud of and Happy New Year.

      Happy New Year to you all also! I look forward to your "proof" and the next project your heart and imagination brings.
