Recent updates




Hi Backers!!

Just wanted to give a final update and to say thank you again for all of the wonderful support you showed us during our Kickstarter campaign last year. We had to jump through so many hoops and hurdles but the diligence paid off! After all, that is what INGENIOUS is all about! Our goal of achieving worldwide distribution has been met! THANK YOU! We couldn't have done it without your support!

As of October 15, 2013 INGENIOUS can be purchased at Targets, Walmarts and Best Buys across the USA in addition to being available to purchase or rent on iTunes.


Rewards have been shipped!

Just in time for the Holidays :)

Thank you all for your patience and understanding regarding the delivery of your rewards. We owe you all a debt of gratitude for getting us this far in the process. I know we have been quiet lately and haven't been making much noise but thats just because our combined efforts have put us in touch with people that will be helping us make a lot of noise in the coming months! Thank you all for your continued support of INGENIOUS!

All domestic rewards were shipped out to last Thursday. Many of you have emailed or Tweeted that you have received them. Thank you for your kind words!

International rewards are in progress but are taking a bit more time due to the cumbersome nature of  the paperwork involved with customs, etc. Please rest assured they will ship very soon.

Some of you have made mention of the fact that your disc only came in a clamshell case. In an unfortunate case of bad luck and timing our DVD manufacturer was out of cases at the time we were rushing to get them out to you. Because they were already delayed, and instead of delaying them further, we opted for the best solution at the time.

Please know it was never our intention to provide you with a sub-par reward and we'd like to the opportunity to make it up to you. If you would like a proper case with artwork we will be happy to ship one to you and can make that happen beginning of January 2013.

Please send an email to our Office Manager, Chris Hansen

Chris will make sure that you are taken care of as those of you that have been in touch with her already know. 

We hope you enjoy the film as much as we enjoyed making it! PLEASE take a minute to give a rating on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes!

If you don't already have an account, it's free to sign up. We are in the early stages of creating awareness for INGENIOUS we NEED our fans and supporters to help us get and keep our ratings up! Please take a moment to rate INGENIOUS on those sites and continue to help us spread the word about our little movie. Here are the links:

THANK YOU all again for your continued support for our film! It has been a pleasure and a privilege to find so many wonderful supportive people through Kickstarter. We hope you will continue to follow our journey and tell your friends about INGENIOUS.

Happy Holidays!

GREAT NEWS! and a great article to boot!

Good day, good people!

We are pleased to announce our first post-Kickstarter run of INGENIOUS is happening! 

Starting Friday, October 19th The Harkins Shea 14 at 7354 E. Shea Blvd. in Scottsdale, AZ will be showing INGENIOUS. Here is a link for times and tickets:

Also, today our friends at Film School Rejects wrote a piece about us and we couldn't be happier. Another great write up from a well respected industry resource.

Please tell your friends in Phoenix to get their tickets. In the meantime we will keep working to process your rewards, plan the LA, NYC and Chicago events and booking even more theaters for those of you that can't make it to celebrate with us at the Premieres.

We are excited by all that is happening. Thank you all for the awesomeness you've shown. We'll be in touch!



We just watch the last few seconds tick by on our projects front page... What a great feeling! It's hard to describe in words, but it was quite surreal to watch the support coming in until literally the last second of the campaign. It was what I might imagine it's like to watch a dream materialize right before your eyes. Up until the clock stopped and Kickstarter switched the page to "Successfully Funded", this still seemed like a mere possibility. You are all so committed to the success of our project and we know that it would not be possible without you. THANK YOU!  Again and again...

WHATS NEXT? Over the course of this coming week we will be sending out surveys to gather the details for your rewards, including shipping addresses and if you are an EARLY BIRD backer we will get your preference for Blu-Ray or DVD.

We will also continue to post other project related updates as they come in and announce theaters as we book them. We have been in contact with several potential venues who are interested in screening INGENIOUS and have set dates with a few of them. We will send you the details soon.

If you have any questions along they way you can message us through Kickstarter or our website and

I can be contacted directly at

We look forward to the tasks ahead. Booking theaters, planning Premiers and shipping rewards. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Please accept our heartfelt thanks and warmest regards!
