We want to thank everyone that helped us out with the benefits at UVSC and Ken Sanders Rare Books, both of which were very successful. As of today all of our expenses are covered for our trip to NYC and Italy/Sicily...which is a MASSIVE relief. We've had our plane tickets for quite some time now and it has been kind of up in the air whether or not we were going to have all the funds that we had budgeted the travel costs, transportation, food, film, equipment, etc. Now, with that taken care of, we can now fully focus on getting the best possible footage while we are away. We are right on time with our original schedule for shooting, editing, and promoting the film. The School of General Academics at UVSC has been especially helpful in the past few weeks, thanks especially to Bonnie Henrie and Michelle Kearns. Also, we want to note that the Integrated Studies Department has constantly helped us from the very beginning...we wouldn't have ever been able to get this project off the ground without the sustained support we've received from Don LaVange and Scott Abbott. 
We also want to thank all of the various private donors, the many UVSC schools/departments/programs, and all those who helped us along the way in getting this far, there are way too many at this point to name comprehensively in a single blog post. We still have a lot of work to do on the film, but we feel confident that we can do it, and do it well...especially with such incredible support.
