I am currently in Brazil and showed the rough cut to the characters and it was very well received. They loved it. It was quite strange returning to the Valley, after two months of staring at them on the TV, I felt like I had walked into a movie set when I got back.
That they were flesh and blood and the town was real was very weird. Not helped by the fact that it totally looks like a movie set. It was surreal and exciting and nerve wracking and loads of fun.
I am taking a group there in October for the Day of Consegration which is nearly as big as the day of the Doutrinador which attracts about 5,000 members.
