Hi all,

First off, I want to say thank you for your patience! Some of you have asked where we are with the project. After editing a feature, I'm close to being done with a rough cut of the short film. After that, I'll be screening it for the producers to get their notes. After a few more rounds, we'll lock and start composing music!

I created a teaser trailer to say thanks to Kickstarter backers, just so you have a sense of the amazing footage we got! Because it's for backers only (not to be posted on Facebook, YouTube, etc.), please message me on Kickstarter or email me at benj.caro@gmail.com to get the secret link and password. Very clandestine! (The secrecy is only because we don't have the rights to the music in the trailer).

Theater By the Blind and Hearts For Sight

Because of our project, Theater by the Blind was able to host its November show A Reason to Love for an extra week, bringing more people into the theater to see the awesome work done by the visually-impaired actors (who worked in conjunction with autistic musicians). The show was really amazing to watch. They have a sold out show at a bar in Venice tomorrow, so keep updated on their Facebook page if you want to catch a future performance!

Hearts for Sight also wants to shout a huge THANK YOU to everyone who's supported Cathedrais and their organization. They recently reached nonprofit status and are looking to hold one of their first fundraisers, a karaoke party, this Saturday, March 4th. Visit the Facebook event for details!

Soon I'll be sending out queries related to your rewards/perks. Watch your inbox! Hope everyone is having a great year.

-Ben
