We were with them, I mean really with them during our two week village shoot. We ate with them. Went to work and school with them. We unzipped our tents with our toothbrushes in our mouths

The Girl Who Knew Too Much Production Blog

Okay, so this is old news! We have been in Nepal for over two weeks now. I tried to send this post out before we even left home as an introduction—a welcome to this adventure—but for some reason it didn’t work. But here we go. I am going to start you off from the very beginning. More to come very

KICKSTARTER! (Or: How TGWKTM Saved Your Holiday Season)

Breathing deeply this Black Friday morning. We’ve launched our Kickstarter campaign to fund the final production push.

 

It’s a big thing, asking the world for money. It is presumptuous and humbling. It’s exciting and nervousmaking. We hope upon hope that what we are doing is of value to enough people that we can continue to do it. Wish
