Huili County mayor Li Ningyi and vice-mayor Tang Xiaobing are inspecting the soon-to-be constructed sets for Wok In Progress in a sound stage in the north of Beijing with some of the cast and crew. Mayor Li Ningyi had this to say, “Serve the Wok In Progress Kickstarter!” You heard the man. Our Kickstarter is here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nopets/wok-in-progress-bilingual-sitcom-series Pledge, share or both.

Yes, this is where we’ll be filming most of the interior scenes for Wok In Progress. After Huili County mayor Li Ningyi and vice-mayor Tang Xiaobing are done with their sound stage inspection, of course.

50% and 1 Week To Go

Half To Our Kickstarter Funding Goal With 1 Week To Go
Good news! We are past the half way point in our Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. Unfortunately, we have just one week to reach our funding goal. If we don’t reach our funding goal, we don’t get anything. Nada. Nix. You will all get your pledges back, but won’t get any cool rewards. Sucks for everyone, right? What used to be a marathon has become a sprint for the finish line. You know those guys handing out cups of water to the runners at marathons?  We need you to do the same.

Thanks so much to everyone who’s already shouted encouragement at us, patted us on the back; handed us cups, buckets, 5-liter jugs, and frickin’ barrels of water. Please pledge, if you haven’t already. If you aren’t pledging, please help us spread the word.
