We want your feedback !

Even though we will not meet our Kickstarter goal, we made great progress. We have booked screenings, events, media, & received private investments. We are heading to Mobile on May 28th to start photographing & filming!

You may have noticed we went quiet, but not because we were giving up!  This story is about adversity and so it's fitting that Ms. Venus & I had life events get in the way during the campaign. We have decided to cancel the Kickstarter campaign for now and may relaunch later. 

We would love to get feedback from you so that in the next phase we can be even more successful. If you would be willing to answer a survey email me at: devin@devinford.com 

Thank YOU for your feedback & support! We would love to keep you up to date on the project. See below our progress so far...

Love, Devin & Ms. Venus
