Trailer released
December 5th, 2011

We have been delayed by technical difficulties with the recording, but we have finaly released the trailer and offically launched the website.



The movie was made in an "enthusiast" mode, so its budget was very low. We did not keep books, there was no central budget and people often paid their expenses themselves. However, my estimate is that the movie cost about 10 000 CZK (400 EUR). Most of this budget was spent on transportation.
