I seem to have ahem, struck a nerve. It's all completely true that I've not been to Duluth, nor know all that much about it. But that's why I want to go. I honestly didn't expect Duluthians to be that willing to help and I'm sorry to upset anyone. It's just a comedy.
I'm just a small independent filmmaker doing his thing. I might not make my Kickstarter goal but I'm gonna try. And if I fail, I'll make the film anyway. And the reason Duluth is horrible in the film, is because the lead character's girlfriend dumps him there. Anywhere is horrible if you have a broken heart.
So Duluth I'm sorry and I hope you'll forgive me in time. I leave you with a comment left on the Kickstarter page:
UPDATE: A few other locals have reached out to me and have been very nice, offering to be actors, show me around, and (my favorite) buy me beer!
