Hello Backers!

We have some exciting news! Two years after Design & Thinking, successfully funded on Kickstarter on the behalf of wonderful Backers like you, our next film, Maker, will be debuting this year. Maker will be world premiering soon first in the San Mateo, Bay Area MakerFaire 2014. And secondly teaming up with the 2014 Taipei MakerFaire, our Asian premiere in Taipei will be on May 24 & 25th. The tickets were sold out within 2 days, and more screenings are coming up.

For Backers who are interested in hosting a screening for Maker, you can fill out the form here, and we'll get back to you as soon as possible :) For those who are interested in hosting a screening in Taiwan, we also have a Chinese form here.

You can follow Maker for more information on Maker's website, Facebook, or Twitter!

We sincerely thank all of you. Without you, we would never have finished Design & Thinking. And Maker would have never been born had we not have Design & Thinking first. So thank you all, and thank you all in sharing our joy and excitement :)

Our new film is on Kickstarter.

After staying in stealth mode for the past few months, we are super excited to share with everybody our new film "Maker" - a documentary on the Maker Movement, from the original team of the Design & Thinking. 

Currently we are crowdfunding the film on Kickstarter. It's been around 4 day and we've already had 227 backers and over $5500 in funds. We're really amazed and excited. Also, we're very honored to be on the Kickstarter "Staff Picks" & "Project of the day."  

Check out our Kickstarter page, help us spread the word and be a part of the revolution!
