    Lean FIRE

    We’ve self funded to this point, and deferred salaries to make this thing happen. It’s a tad ironic that we are pursuing financial independence and not making money. We understand that. Please…please help. We’ve made a huge mistake :)

    You'll get EXCLUSIVE WEEKLY BACKER UPDATES from us through the rest of this project. And we don’t mean lame every few months “oh we’ve been busy” updates. We’re talking updates from our director, cast members and constant communication on developments in licensing deals, press, screening tours etc. that you won’t get anywhere else.
