Update #17

Sayonara to Hello "Teaser" Trailer #1 online now!

Comment

Hello Everyone!
I hope 2012 is treating you all as good as it has been treating Nic and I so far. 

I got to see a rough cut of the doc and I must say it is really wonderful what Nic is doing with it. He is a great story teller and we've only had 4 fights so far about what should be left in/taken out. Actually we haven't had any fights but Nic keeps telling me that drama is what makes a film successful. 

If you have a few minutes please head over to the blog at www.sayonarahello.com and watch the trailer.

You can also watch the trailer from this direct link: http://vimeo.com/35159837

More exciting news coming soon!

Sayonara for now!
