It’s hard to bend my brain around the reality of it all: IT’S BEEN A WHOLE, ENTIRE YEAR since the Kickstarter.com crowd-fundraiser for The Price successfully came to a close on December 1st, 2010.
Wow. Time, as they are wont to say, truly does fly … and that’s particularly true when you are fortunate enough to spend that time realizing a 6-year dream of bringing one of your very favorite stories to cinematic life!
In light of the Thanksgiving season and to celebrate this anniversary of so much genuine kindness and goodwill, I’ve put together a quick Videoblog to update everyone on the current state of things, and to express how very grateful I am to all of the wonderful backers who made it possible.
That gratitude is especially extended to Mr. Neil Gaiman (also a backer), whose generosity, trust and cooperation have created real magic in my life, as well as in the lives of so many others.

I also want to thank Cat Mihos, Rob King, Ryan Peterson, Dave Laub, Zain Effendi, Christian Perry, and many others on my team who are putting their hearts and souls into this project right along-side my own.
And most of all, I want to publicly thank my very best friend/overwhelmingly-supportive wife Glynis, and all of our truly amazing kids who have (more or less) cheerfully put up with Dad’s incessant ramblings and countless hours locked-away down in his basement dungeon!!!
Because of all of you, The Price is moving forward, making its way from somewhere deep inside my heart and mind and onto the screen — thank you all SO MUCH!!!
