“We surpassed our goal! But it wasn’t without tons of hard work and uncertainty. Even if you have a great idea, you need media/blog attention to blow up, and we didn’t get that, so it was completely our own network. In the end, we made lots of great connections & now we have money for production!” -Adam Wegener
