And they are Off!

Hello beautiful people. Well, it is really happening, thanks to you guys! The filmmakers are on their way to Tokyo. I think the plane ride is about 13 hours. Hopefully, they will sleep through most of it because they have a lot of work to do once they get there. :-)

I have asked the "Black Sun" team to send me images, thoughts, and updates during their week long adventure, so stay tuned.

Soon after their return, after the jet-lag settles, and all the Kickstarter processing has cleared, we will get to work on getting you the lovely deliverables we promised.

FYI, it would be lovely to end this at $10,500. I wonder if that can happen in 13 hours?

More soon!
