Fun Stats

A huge thanks to all my friends and family that helped me with this project, including friend and production designer, Sam Bolds. It took hundreds and thousands of cables, soldering, and hours in our temporary barn/workshop to get this project done.

Fun Facts

Some quick bullet points

  • The show is currently 15 minutes but we are constantly making changes
  • It took about 3 months of full time work to get the lights put up and the show runnng
  • I spent way too much money on this show. But you do crazy things for the things you love. (hence why donations are enormously appreciated)


There are some significant costs to putting on a show like this, any donation is greatly appreciated and ensures we can keep the show running.
