Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge for us is time. The movie has a hard delivery date with the distribution company mid-November. I have to shoot, edit, score, mix and finish post-production. It's a lot of work in a very short amount of time. The more successful this campaign, the greater ability we'll have to get the job done right.

The good news for Kickstarter backers:
For those of you who want to visit the set, you won't have to wait long. We'll be scheduling it as soon as we reach our goal!

I've been working on this movie for a dozen years; I just need a little help to finish it. Thank you very much.

- John
