Dear Westerly Backers,
Thanks once again for your support. The film is coming along well. We spent the final months of 2013 in the editing room. It's a real joy and education working with our editor, Victor Livingston. He's a monster of the documentary form, and it came across in his every cut. We currently have about half the movie done. It's looking really good. There's great archival stuff of Peter Drouyn heaving up and down on shimmering waves in Mauritius, South Africa, Japan, and Indonesia. There's a surreal hospital in Bangkok that's straight out of an S&M fantasy, mini-skirt-clad nurses gliding through the halls on rollerblades, a plastic surgery wing that looks more like the cosmetics floor of a high-end department store. We're chasing down some of our final interviewees. Once we get them we'll go back into the editing room and get the thing done.
So that's the lowdown. Again, thanks so much.
