Dear supporters,

It's official. TFAB is on the move.

It's been just over a month since the campaign ended and the fun officially began. It seems like just yesterday that we were nail-biting and page-refreshing, worried about reaching our goal. But reach it we did, and I'm ecstatic to say that we will finally be setting off in just over a week to begin production.

The time has flown by, and our team has been hard at work making sure everything is just right: We've hired the very talented Luke Sauer as our Director or Photography, so that all our "pictures" can be as pretty as possible. And thanks to our generous backers, he will be using the best equipment available to make sure that Landry's story is told without compromise. 

Vaccinations and visas are in order, as are our flights and accommodations for both Abidjan and Amsterdam. We have a translator, a camera, and a whole lot of positive energy, which (in my humble opinion) are the most important items on our checklist. All that's left to do is to get on a plane. Piece of cake.

But enough about us. Because the real stars of this show are the preternatural super-humans that made all of this possible: the TFAB Backers. In the coming days we will be sending out surveys to get details on where and how to deliver your rewards. Please let us know as soon as you can where to send all the love we have stockpiled over here in your name - and even if you chose "no reward" we'll still be in touch to make sure that your name is correctly spelled on your certificate of IMMORTALITY*: the supporters page on our website, which will be up very soon.

On that note, we will be sending updates, pictures, music, and trivia from the road - both via KS and through social media - more to come on how to stay in the loop.

And for anyone who didn't have a chance to back and would like to participate, many of the rewards are still available so feel free to send us a message telling us how you'd like to be involved.

Thank you again for your continued support in making The Tenor from Abidjan a reality.


PS Landry sent this our way. Enjoy! <3
