"Daughter of God is made possible by a generous grant from the cosmos with additional support from the space-time continuum."

Many entities have supported the realization of Daughter of God, either by hauling a coil of extension cord on location or just by living with gusto on the fringe of their own unique reality. This is most definitely an incomplete acknowledgment; to list all the contributors would require a comprehensive inventory of our entire life experience, from a maternity ward in Mineola, New York, to this very moment...

Along with robust appreciation for who did what, explore an extensive elaboration of influences at reference, part of the Deep Development archive.

Post-Production Audio Deliciousness

Eventhough the 1972 Airstream Globetrotter production trailer
is named after him, Keanu Reeves had nothing to do with this
movie. Maybe next time.
