We Made it!


With just over 48 hours to go we've reached our Kickstarter goal! A humungous thanks to everyone who's contributed. We couldn't have done it without you!

The film still needs all the funding it can get, so keep spreading the word.

Your support continues to amaze me.

with love and gratitude


$10k! and a Casting Update


Yesterday Kickstarter featured us as their Project of the Day. Being that there's over 770 film projects alone, we couldn't have been more honored. All that good buzz helped us pass the $10,000 mark and we're stoked. So thanks to everyone who's supported so far, and keep spreading the word!

Casting is well underway, and I'm excited to announce that the über-talented Hannah Gross has been cast as our lead female. Hannah appeared in Matt Porterfield's Sundance favorite I Used to Be Darker as well as Dustin Guy Defa's Lydia Hoffman, Lydia Hoffman (also shot by Sean Price Williams).

Just over a week to go--thanks again for your support so far and I look forward to keeping you all updated on this wonderful journey!

much love


We've reached $5k!


We're more than 1/3 of the way towards our goal and we couldn't be more excited. A very hearty THANK YOU to everyone that's contributed so far.

We have a few very exciting updates to share with you soon. But in the meantime, here's some footage from 2010 when I bought the RV. (I look very young.)
