Well, how bout that? We met our goal. Each and every one of you played a part in that. As you watch this film carry out its life, you will always know that you are a critical little piece of its success.
I can't thank you enough for your support. I've been making films since 2004 when Josh Caldwell and I shot 10 MPH and I've had many moments where I darn near quit. But many of you in various ways have counseled me and encouraged me to keep living this dream. And you are still there continuing to prove your conviction in me.
This success on Kickstarter marks another milestone in my career. I am not alone, though, as I share this gratitude with my wife Sarah, who worked relentlessly with me day and night everyday for the last three weeks to make sure all of you understood how important this film is going to be. You do and you are on our team now.
Also, Rhea and Robert Hawkins, Justin Haight, and Shannon Ongaro who were key people in the making of this film worked very hard to help raise this money too and I'm super grateful to have each of them in my life.
I ensure that your contributions will be far reaching and we'll use this platform to keep you updated on release plans. As of now, we're expecting a Spring 2012 release, so for the next few months, you can imagine a small team buried in edit working with over 200 hours of footage.
My sincerest gratitude,
