Lluis Margarit is a film-making student from the university ESCAC and about to complete his final project. He just launched a Kickstarter campaign and needs your support to make it happen!

He and his fellow team mates have a great passion for cinema and are eager to share this magnificent comedy with the world, which they hope you’ll enjoy. They are providing a Google Drive link with the press release as well as the poster and storyboard…
