Happy New Year

1 comment

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.

    What's that? You want a picture of your swing, maybe with kids playing on it or one of us eating a sandwich near it? That's going to cost extra.

    The above, plus a DVD of the full length feature and behind the scenes access to footage as we forge ahead. PLUS a chance to peek at the rough edits, if you have a good idea we'll likely listen to it

    You just created a dozen swings with your name on them, an autographed DVD with a HAND DRAWN thank you letter from the filmmakers and we'll credit you as a producer for being such a big part of making this happen. You can still include the website URL of your choice in the film and on the project website.

    For showing so much support you must really care about this project, so you can choose the next city, country, or town we bring Swings to.
