6 comments

Thank you all so very much from the bottom of my heart. We made our goal with a little to spare. I could not have done this without all of your support. We are planing out our film now and will head off to start principal photography this month. We will post updates here via our KS page to keep you all informed of our progress. We will also post tons of BTS footage on www.wideopencamera.com This has been such an incredible journey. I cannot thank you all enough for breathing life into our film.

      Congrats Jared on taking this giant step forward to bringing a documentary film about corporal punishment in the schools to the world. School paddling is child abuse and it must stop. Go for quality and you will succeed.

      Our pleasure Jared and congrats. Enjoy the journey on this film and I am looking forward to seeing the final product. For what it is worth, I am supporting Jared, the passionate filmmaker mores than the film topic. I am sure there are abuses and those must stop but I look forward to your film providing another perspective.
