What is a crazy story about the startup?:

A story that keeps coming back to me and inspires me to plug on through all difficulty is about a long ago high school alum I knew. Curtis was a tall, olive-complected good-looking guy back in the 70’s who was having a torrid affair with a Beaumont, Texas housewife. When her husband showed up by surprise in the middle of the afternoon, Curt jumped out the window with only a pair of sneakers and ran down Pecos Blvd. in his bare and beautiful belonging. So, whenever I hear the Fabulous Thunderbirds cover of Juke Boy Bonner’s Runnin’ Shoes, this technicolor vision screams through my head every time. I know other fans out there have similar stories to tell and that’s just what we’re gonna do in this film. 

What is a company the startup looks up to, and why?:

101 Studios…because they take a chance on stories that need to be, have to be told. Like this one.

A full-fledged film with a ton of followers and fans.
