Risks and challenges

Like any film, there are always risks involved. I have worked in television & film for over 12 years. I've been telling stories while working on News, Documentaries, and Film. This is a visual effects (VFX) intensive project. Even though it is a short film, my biggest goal is to stay on target with the delivery dates and not skip out on quality. That's why I've hired the BEST! 

I've backed my share of Kickstarters, and I have seen great success & absolute failures. My promise to you is to do my ABSOLUTE BEST to make this project a great success! I will keep communication on the page with monthly updates to ensure this production comes to fruition. You can also get early access to updates, behind the scenes experiences and sneak peeks by signing up for our email newsletters!
