This is my first crowdfunding campaign update on the Indiegogo platform.

Thank you for being a part of our incredible journey to bring “Film About Chess Champion From South Africa” to life. Before we launched, we didn’t know who else would be as excited about our idea as we were. Now, because of your support and the support of 14 backers, we’ll be able to start to hire our cameraman and continue filming interviews.

Our priority is to deliver on our commitments to you and we’ll keep you updated on our progress. As we hunker down to make this film project about Jesse February a reality, you can expect to receive open, honest, & substantive updates from us monthly. Feel free to contact us film@jessefebruary.com in the interim if you have any questions in the interim. Thanks again for your support!

All the best,
