We are out of the woods and starting to have a bit of pocket change to save up.

That said, we are receiving a lot of offers that we can’t always take up due to the limits of budget and equipment, so please consider donating to the project. Even at our next funding level no one will be getting a paycheck for their work until we have all the gear we feel will help us enrich the show.

Please consider supporting us if you like the series.
