we know that this project was only made possible by the trust and love shown through friends across the globe, who pledged to our Kickstarter back in March, 2016. However, there are a group of individuals, living and working in East Vancouver, who worked tirelessly behind the scenes to contribute to this project in their own, unique way, and guided me through thick and thin. 

after long nights of rehearsals, countless emails back and forth, and in my darkest moments and insecurities, They brought my creative vision to life. it is here, in a small, brief way, that I would like to thank them, praise them, and recognize them for offering their skill, talent and professionalism to a project that I am sincerely proud of. 

Love, Shadi
