Good news! We've finally wrapped production on CHEATIN'!

I know, I've said that before, but this time it's final. Hollywood filmmakers say you never finish a film, you just give up on it. And I think that's true. I could work on CHEATIN' for another three years, trying to make it as perfect as possible - but I simply don't have the time or the money.

So, we're now in the process of entering festivals and trying to pick up distribution. I really believe this film is something different and unique. It's the film America is waiting to see.

I'll give you more information and screening dates as they develop. In the meantime, you can visit our new website for the film:

      Unfortunate for sure Devon (We always get ignored here in the middle of the US), but the wait is nearly over.

      Awesome news, I'm looking forwards to finally seeing your latest work. But, for anyone without a screening in their area, the wait is far from over. Looks like there are a lot of people who will see it before your backers. C'est la vie.

      Felicidades Mr. Plympton. I bet it's been one Hell of a run. But now the real race begins. Best of luck to you and all those who helped you along the way. Can't wait to see the final piece.
