Dear Investors and Pre-Investors,
I hope you are all well, safe, and taking courage. I had a thought this week that I wanted to share to invigorate you today…
This week I was interviewed by ‘The Statesman Journal’, which is one the most widely circulated papers up here in my home state of Oregon. (The article should be out soon, and when it is I will be sure to share it with you all here.) Over the course of a few hours we discussed my roots, my childhood, my schooling and teenage years, how I became attracted to the arts, and how it is that I found myself where I am today, that is, holding a raise on Wefunder to complete a feature film of my dreams, and doing business with some of the most affable and intelligent investors in the world.
If I went back and told my 12 year old self — “Cal, one day you’re going to be in Hollywood making movies during the largest pandemic in American history, and your film as well as others like yours will be integral to the endurance of your homeland — the land of the free, and the home of the brave.” If I told that to my 12 year old self, my jaw would hit the playground.
The truth is, I love this country. It has given me everything I have, and the majority of humans who I know and love live within it. America and its values is the backbone of everything I have done, everything I have accomplished, and everything I hope to accomplish.
America is a capitalist country, and I both love it, and value it immensley. Living in this country is not for the faint of heart. I am competing with the best of the world on a daily basis, and I value the inherent challenge with gratitude and without complaint. Competition breeds greatness… and in order for this environment of excellence to continue, our country must and will stand.
America was built on great achievements, so I say to you now, never has it been more important for Americans to achieve great things then the present moment. When the tyranny of fear and darkness rises up, we shine our light and smile, for it is no matter, we will be successful regardless. There is nothing, I say — nothing — that can stop The Unlimited Light of the American Dream.
I do not entertain any opinion contrary to the truth I have come to know — America is the Light of this world. We are fallible sure — we are human — but what we were founded on and what we represent and what we hope in is greater than all things limited. We have fought and toiled to build a place of freedom, progress, and limitless upward mobility for those that seek it. We have our eyes set on things above… and to bring them to earth is the chief aim of our nation and those that believe in it.
America has been Divine from its Inception, and Divinity cannot be undone.
On behalf of myself and the rest of the production, thank you for considering our project. We have already come so far, and it's clear we will be successful. There’s no better way to shine the light and push forward in positivity then to continue to accomplish great artistic endeavors in the face of fear and darkness.
America will prevail, and so will you.
Thank you, and stay safe.
Cal R. Barnes,
