Hey y’all this thing I’ve been working on with Sky for MANY MANY MOONS is now finally on the block! Check out the frankly gorgeous demo video above and please visit our Kickstarter page, sharing it generously even if you’re not so inclined to cough up any dough.

Eternal gratitude to any who choose to contribute, but also just helping get the word out via reblogs, likes, shares, retweets, etc very, very sincerely appreciated. Do take a look!
I love documentaries featuring kids where their quirky, adorable, and hilarious personalities get to shine, eg. Mad Hot Ballroom and First Position. Really looking forward to Chris and Sky’s film… back, back, back it up!
