Spider-Gwen vs Punisher (First Look) + Conversation and Podcast from SHL
As of now my next release will be a Spider-Gwen film. That is subject to change, I will explain in this post so please read through it. I decided to attach my narrative following the actual Spider-Gwen comic series: In Spider-Gwens universe (Earth-65) George Stacy ends up in the pursuit of Spider-Woman’s arrest following the death of Peter Parker unaware that his daughter Gwen Stacy is Spider-Woman. He discovers her true identity surprised to find out she is his daughter. Frank Castle/Punisher is a dirty cop who has been assigned the job of bringing Spider-Gwen to justice after George Stacy fails to do so. He has a history with using excessive force to complete his job.
Thats where my films begins, after the events in the comic in which Punisher runs into Spider-Woman outside of George Stacys home (George is attacked by the vulture). I will include a link below to a book which includes this storyline in case you’d like to read it in preparation for my film.
Spider-Gwen: Gwen Stacy
This film will be released as a Unmasking Film
For those of you who do not remember or are new here:
I will release my film with a 48 hour window to watch the film without announcing the actress of the film, so that anyone who enjoys unmasking can have a true unmasking experience with the release. This will narratively is built around the unmasking moment as Punisher works with George Stacy therefore knows who his daughter is. The unmasking reveal therefore has the extra punch that the characters have a history together.
After that 48 hour window I will release a new trailer with the actress reveal, so for anyone who can’t or isn’t interested in buying a film without knowing the actress can also be able to buy with confidence if unmasking isn’t your thing.
- RELEASE DATE: NEXT MONTH… MAYBE
- SOFTCORE FILM (This is NOT a hardcore release)
- Runtime: Undetermined (midway through editing, dont have a clear runtime determined yet)
- Sex scene: 6 minutes (estimated based on current edit)
- BJ scene: 7 minutes (estimated based on current edit)
- Cost: it will be less than my other films as its softcore, I am guessing in the $40 dollar range
I am conflicted about wether or not to slightly postpone this film release. I will do my best to explain my mindset and behind the scenes information that has complicated this release.
- The sex scene runtime is short. Shorter than I am comfortable with. Multiple things happened that caused production complications and despite my best efforts the runtime of the sex scene has ended up shorter than I anticipated. The production complications ballooned the cost of the production of this film, so it places me a complicated position.
- I have done my best to calculate the cost of reshoots to beef up the sex scene of this film, and those reshoot costs would be substantial enough to make anyone squeamish about the wether or not they would be something thats even possible to do. Based on an average of sales for the last 3 films I have released – reshoots would mean I lose a lot of money on this film. Granted, if this film outsells my last 3 releases – I wouldn’t mind literally breaking even on this film and making $0 dollars in profit (can’t win them all nor do I plan too) but I do not see any reality in which I can eat the loses I have estimated reshoots would cost me. Especially after…
- APRIL! Fun fact – Us in the United States pay taxes in April. So, my bank account got fucked by paying the man my taxes. I have an allocated amount of money to produce my coming film ‘The Killing Joke’ which will be the most expensive film I ever made and I refuse to spend a penny of that money so that I can afford to shoot that film. I was going to shoot that film last month but multiple things delayed shooting it, so as of now that money for that project is growing dust and it will not be touched. In the same vein as Killing Joke – I have allocated assets to cover Raffle Custom that I also will not touch until that film is also shot. And finally! I have another secret project I was planning on making this year… I shot 1/3 of it and as far as I can tell… that project may never actually be complete which will be a massive loss financially for me unless I recast the actress and everyone somehow tolerates a film where the lead actress changes multiple times during watching the film.
So… just to re-summarize: I just got done paying a lot of taxes, I have allocated money for The Killing Joke which binds up a lot of my liquid assets, I have allocated money to cover raffle custom film and I shot 1/3 of a film that might be cancelled indefinitely. Which makes reshoots for a longer sex scene for Spider-Gwen almost impossible… if not a horrible financial decision.
Why am I telling you all of this?
Cause ultimately I (as in me, Damien Woods) have no ability to change the situation I am stuck in. My only option is to release the film AS IS. But YOU (The collective you, the audience interested in Spider-Gwen) have the ability to control the future of this films release.
I kind of want to put it to a vote. I have no clue how many of you are even interested in a soft-core release from me, how many of you want an unmasking film (that is also soft-core), how many of you who want a unmasking film thats softcore to have a long sex scene to begin with, OR how many of you who want a soft-core unmasking scene would actually prefer the shorter sex scene.
Does this sound complicated? Cause its what my brain has been processing for the last couple weeks.
- Release the film AS-IS
- Take pre-orders on the film, if enough are ordered – do reshoots
- Take pre-orders on film, release AS-IS, – if it sells well, do a reshoot later and send a 2nd download of extended sex scene
I am wary of the situation as I would hate to take preorders, not sell enough to cover the cost of production + reshoots, then have a bunch of customers angry who only purchased a preorder cause they wanted reshoots. Therefore – I would only want to take preorders from customers who are ready to receive the film AS-IS, cause I would not be able to withstand losing half my preorders considering everything I just typed above
I do something else to generate money to cover reshoots
Like a massive sale on some of my old films, so if people buy enough of my films on sale that could cover reshoot cost even if the film sales itself come in at a financial loss
Jesus! Did anyone of you actually read all of that? Forgive me for posting all that, its a lot, its a complicated situation, I want to be as transparent as possible without giving you my social security number. Please let me know your thoughts in the comment section BELOW
If all things go according to plan the voice over version of the Zatanna film will be released in the next month or so. If you have already purchased the film you’ll receive new links for the updated version of the film when its complete. Ball is rolling, I think its all going to work out and then we can all forget it took over a year to make a VOICE OVER HAPPEN
The Killing Joke
Ashley is not available this month to shoot. Looking into the possibility of re-scheduling shoot for next month. Please be patient! Know that however much you want this… I want it more. I have never put this amount of work into something I have made in this genre. I will make the delay worth it.
One of my personal life friends showed a bunch of his close friends (podcast host buddies) and their wives one of my films and they asked me to be a guest on their show.
They have a podcast that’s primarily about football but the episode is dedicated to them asking me about the films I make and questions they have about our genre in general.
I apologize in advance for the ‘vocal disguise crime report’ vibe my vocal audio on the episode has, just not at the point in my life where I want to be talking on podcast in my natural sounding voice.
But if you are interested in checking it out, links below
And follow them if you like football podcast
Also… how many of you out there would be interested in a Superheroine Podcast? I dont know what that would look like, but, maybe it can be a thing
Looking good, now just waiting for that email
On the trailer the grunts and flash of skin shown are starting to tingle my brain into guesses but don’t have a clue at the moment. Maybe Coco with her resurgence but doesn’t really fit…
Keen to have my questions answered!
One of the things I like most from what I’ve seen of this trailer are the grunts the actress makes as she gets hit. The grunts and moans should not only fit the intensity of the hits, but also sound like the actress is actually getting hit, as opposed to sounding like they’re getting turned on, which is a common problem in the heroine peril genre. This is an aspect of peril that is overlooked by some, but can be a deal breaker for me. Often times when an actress gets hit it sounds less like they’re in pain and… Read more »
Spider-Gwen handcuffed to a table
Excited to see who the actress is. Is “Option 1” the one that you ended up going with?
Option 1 is the plan unless the film does well enough to warrant expanding the ending, which I am still not opposed too. People should not buy it if they will not be happy with Option 1
Will Nathan Bronson be playing the punisher and while this is soft core will we still be seeing any nudity from the male performer? Thanks for the update!
Nathan will not be in the film. Mask stays on male performer. Penis shown is fake.
any news about the release?
Is the release soon?
I decided I want to be broke forever
prefer super girl，could you please add more scene of playing with her feet
When I clicked on the download button, it took me to a page that read, “Thank you for your preorder. Continue to look at HM for updates.” At first the download page said I had 5 attempts to download, now it is saying I only have 4. What should I do? Should I stop attempting to download so I don’t use up all my attempts?
You’ll receive a new download via email when the film drops
Okay. Thank you for your response.
Ouuuuuu boy the trailer looks good. Any ETA on the finished product?
when the film will be released?
Since you’re doing Spider-Gwen, I’d love to see your take on a Gwenpool peril film.
Not interested in doing anything Deadpool related in my films. I’m not interested in comedy in my peril films
Fair enough, I just like the Gwenpool costume.
Soooo… The new girl on the block is Lily Lou, the first and so far the only actress (that I can think of) to do hardcore for another great SHIP producer. And let me tell you, she’s the total package. Acting, athletic, can throw a punch, can take a beating, and she can f**k too! I almost forgot that part. And if my eyes and ears didn’t deceive me, I think she likes the genre. If you haven’t seen the video, which shall remain nameless, for I don’t like trampling on a producer’s stream, do yourself a favor and watch… Read more »
Hate to burst your bubble Bigums but I tried hiring her in March, asked for measurements for a costume, never got them. There seems to be some complication between her and her current/or previous agent so I was told a few months ago she wasn’t bookable through her agency – got her phone number from fellow talent and reached out directly to her myself – she asked for my website and information, then ghosted me. I sent a follow up text message a couple weeks later to check back in with her – never got a response So it’s fair… Read more »
Awwww maaaannnn!!!! If, at first, you don’t succeed, yada, yada, yada. This one, too, “Third time’s a charm.” Do we need to blast her various pages to tell her that she’s missing out? But you know what? I can take solace in the fact that your eye for talent is on point as always.
I prefer people don’t social media blast her to encourage her to work with me, she has my phone number, if she wanted to work with me she literally just has to blink. I don’t want anyone to feel I’m shaking them down. If it’s meant to be, it will be, it will be, it will be.
I saw the video she was so good. She definitely enjoyed herself in the video. Definitely one of the best Wonder Woman vids I’ve seen
Anyone want to point me in the direction of said video? I’m interested to know.
Long time no talk – I will write more on the forums soon but here’s a small catch up. I still want to add more onto the end of Spider-Gwen but scheduling to do that wont be an option for the next month and half or so. The film will be released before thats an option. If you BUY Spider-Gwen – assume there wont be additional content shot, as – if the film does poorly after its released I wont be retroactively spending more money on a film thats a flop. (My preorder + limited sales on previous titles did… Read more »
Did the email regarding The Killing Joke get sent, or is that still planned for the future? I’m pretty sure that I preordered, but I haven’t seen an email, and want to be sure not to miss it.
Email sent out
Obligatory end of month message of any update 🙂
Will say that regarding your above message around economy downturn while it hasnt really effected me what id kicking me in the teeth with these purchases is the exchange rate… As an Australian i’m getting shafted with a 0.65 AUD to USD rate…
any news when it will be released?
That’s one of the reasons I don’t pre-order anymore.
There can always be something in between, but I find this waiting and polite inquiries simply shit.
So when a Movie/Custom comes out, watch the trailer, you find it interesting, you buy it. Easy.
I never received this, just want to make sure I’m on the preorder list as I should be.
It hasn’t come out
I’m aware, I’m saying I never received the email you said was sent to preorder customers.
Did you preorder Killing Joke?
I had preordered the Abbie Batgirl movie, but after the trailer was released I’d messaged you on this site asking if I could apply the preorder to the Killing Joke movie instead. You agreed at the time, but either the PMs on this site are broken right now or it’s deleted that conversation for some reason, so hopefully that triggers your memory or else I guess I’m out of luck.
Its easier to email this kind of information instead of asking specific questions on this forum, especially as I have been under the weather for the last few weeks and checking this site isn’t a priority
17 days ago – “I will write more on the forums soon“.
To this day – Nothing on the forum.
Got COVID, so, sorry but I am not sorry
Get well soon !
Hope it leaves you as it found you.
I hope you get better soon.
There are some news?
Of course no hah
Just wanted to mention that any work with Alina Lopez is always an instant buy for me. With the outstanding Batgirl costumes used so far, I can only imagine how hot Alina would look wearing that outfit (or a shiny Supergirl outfit).
Loved the unmasking revelation of Alina as Spidergirl; hoping for a similar such surprise with Spider-Gwen.
Alina exclusively shoots her own content now. She isn’t hirable.
Thanks for the heads up, and thank you for making the films you did with her before she moved on. She was fantastic. Definitely two of my favorite purchases in the genre (and I highly recommend checking them out to anyone who has not yet).
Damn!! That’s bad news.
Is it to late to pre order
Hey Damien still looking forward to watching this vid! Can you look into Brick Danger? He is a good performer and he has history with this type of work he played the joker in a primal fetish video and a ninja in another.
He also did a number of pseudo-rape scenes for the Fetish Network.
Feel free to email me talent to look into, but my current production flow is slower than the amount of recommendations you make, unfortunately.
is their any current update?
Would you consider making another movie with Riley Reyes ? Your other movies with her are great !
I reached out to her a year or so ago. She retired from shooting with others during the pandemic and now is doing her own thing. I don’t know she plans on staying in the business much longer, I think she has plans for a pursuing new avenues in her life
I would like the video as a hard core over a soft core especially since the actress doesn’t spread. Debooting thos converse is great thinking and more sex screen time. I’m fine with making a purchase of this film and I hope financially you’ll be able to reshoot soon because the hard core is so good!
Reshoots with the same actress if they happen will not be hardcore. It’s a softcore actress.
Thank you for responding to my comment. If it’s just soft core I don’t think it’s a terrible idea as is then. I hope to see it soon
I will probably buy this film looks nice but to be honest I am very much looking forward to the zatanna voice over out of curiousity and obviously you don’t have to answer I was just wondering how long will the voice over be like is it just a few lines or will we be hearing whats going on in her head for alot of the film was just wondering keep up the good work.
The intention was always just to put some dialogue in her voice over when she’s gagged. Not super extensive but enough to keep you in line with her experience
Can she orgasm in flims ? If she not orgasm I dont buy this
Tags orgasm or not orgasm ?
I actually don’t remember, I’ll have to double check
“Sex scene: 6 minutes (estimated based on current edit)” – I’m little disappointed because of only 6 minutes sex minutes. I will buy it, but I wait when second trailer came out.
I pre-ordered it. 🙂
Definitely pre ordering this one! Very interested to see the fight scene in this one. Can you look into Aaron Wilcoxxx? He is pretty hot and I’ve seen him in similar content!
I hope there will be some wetting scenes in the film
Explain “wetting scenes”
scenes which the heroine pees and wets her costume and the floor
98 percent sure I won’t be doing anything like that in any of my films. Unless its a custom and I’d probably decline a custom that involved that unless they were paying a premium. Its just not something on my vision board
Damien, I did read through all of that and just want to say thank you for explaining the situation you’re in right now. I think, sometimes, we as the general consumer, don’t realize how much of a Herculean effort it takes to make even one of these videos, and here you are balancing multiples (probably on a regular basis, by this time). I doft my chapeau to thee, sir. As for your question, I’m good with a softcore unmasking video with a short sex scene. I’d take it as is. It would help you keep your other projects rolling and… Read more »
Are you referencing Paul Reiser from Aliens? That is a deep cut my friend.
Perfect company man for Weyland Yutani.
Exactly….but it was Alien II.
Aliens is Alien 2. Alien (first film) Aliens (second film) Alien 3 (third film)
Yes, that is the one of the roles I was referring to.
This looks really cool! Is Nathan playing the punisher? I would prefer option 1 I can’t wait to see this film! I look forward to seeing more of your great work keep doing your thing man!
Interested in making another film with death ending?
Thats such a vague open ended question. Am I interested in making another film? Always. Will it have a death ending? Ehh, I am not leaning towards it.
Why do you ask? Are you offering me $5,000 dollars or $50?
Just pre-ordered. I’m usually pretty picky with what I spend money on and this is the first time I’ve pre-ordered something without a trailer but like others have said you’ve definitely earned my trust over time and I’m more than fine for you to go ahead with option 1 (hoping reshoots are an option though if viable). Also I’m a sucker for spider-gwen.. 😀
Thank you for the trust, hope it lives up to expectations!
How much to get a de-shoeing?
Currently: several thousand dollars
I would be fine with as is. If it’s ok of me to ask; I am curious if there are any KO’s?
There’s at least one KO. I forget if there’s a 2nd but definitely a notable one.
Cool. Thanks for the response. That is enough to move my casual interest into pre-ordering action.
I’m just curious, Even though this is softcore, is this a first or rare appearance of softcore action for the actress involved?
I don’t need to know who she is, but If its someone who normally doesn’t go outside of PG content, that would make this even more interesting and exciting.
Spider-Gwen traditionally doesn’t star in fetish content, but Punisher tracked her down n we got her
Not a fan of the converse shoes even if they are canon, but also I don’t care much about her hair colour…but it may only be me because in my ideal world she wouldn’t be unmasked…just fight and loose and suffer a humilliation (maybe torn costume) like the Invincible Angels videos from the old Sooperhero site. And man this is just a pipe dream…but having filmed an Spider Girl and now Spider Gwen video, a Silk film to complete a trilogy of Spider themed heroines would be killer, even if only half her face is covered so it wouldn’t fall… Read more »
Well my post wasn’t edited correctly, I say release it as is. You have explained your position and made clear the cicumstances. If the film does well, you can shoot something similar in the future for the fans of it if you feel you need to make up for the short sex scene!
Hope this does well!
It would be good to sell one movie at a low price and discuss the production of two films depending on the purchase requirements.
Personal preference: I like unmasking. I like the scene where I feel helpless.
Spider Gwen is a blonde, so if necessary, a wig or a yellow-haired woman would be nice
“It would be good to sell one movie at a low price and discuss the production of two films depending on the purchase requirements.” – I don’t understand this statement
If there are many buyers, it means to make the next episode.
I hope Damien will do a film with a spider girl character who wears pantyhose under the suit. So the de-costuming scene will reveal her second layer vulnerability
I don’t see myself doing this.
any bondage elements? gags? blindfolds?
Hand cuffs are used
Whatever the choice you make, I will just order it. I Love SpiderGwen! Thank you for this work!
You’ve proven yourself on more than enough occasions for me to pick option 1. It’s clearly outlined, so as the consumer I know exactly what to expect with my purchase. I’ve never been disappointed with a purchase yet going back to Uninvited #1. As others have said, it would be better to proceed forward and keep the momentum going with future projects rather than spend time on reshoots. I view this as a one-off project that satisfies the tastes of a couple of us out there and not the norm, so I’m cool with that. Sorry to hear that you… Read more »
Add Silk to the list!! And with no converse shoes or similar, bodysuits have that second skin appeal I don’t see the point in boots ^^
(Your preview pic is a perfect example)
….forgot to mention. Really like the SH podcast idea.
Option 1: As-Is. Have learned to like the hardcore sexual content but probably because you do it well but don’t think I would miss it if it were not there. I am a big fan of the cocky heroine putting up a strong fight before ultimately losing scenario. One of the reasons why your Alina-Spidergirl movie ranks up there as one of my all time favourites. May I ask if there is a similar fight sequence or sequences in Spider Gwen? Needless to say it’s a buy for me. Not sure why but also really like the fact that I… Read more »
“May I ask if there is a similar fight sequence or sequences in Spider Gwen?”
They are different because 1: Alina was a gymnast so she can do things most people cant and 2: the bad guy in Alinas film was an alien and Punisher in my film is just a bad cop, not superhuman
Many thanks Damien.
As already stated, it’s a buy from me.
I’m going to guess the actress is Coco. She’s been popping up recently with a bunch of different studios and Damien stated the actress only does softcore
Damien also stated that this actress doesn’t do “spread shots.” Unless my memory is playing tricks on me, I’ve seen at least full frontal from Coco in the past, and I think spread shots, too.
yeah, I thought Coco too, until he said no spread shots. Could be anyone at this point. I love the excitement. My other guess is McKenzie. She seems to be branching out into other studios now.
She’s done one that I know of. Not Super Heroine stuff though. “Waiting for Marriage” from her early days. Spread that is.
I am sure that your “final” Option = sale on your old videos would also bring quite an amount of money
Sales bring in money but nothing compared to a new film release
Honestly, I don’t like sex, personally. Which is why I don’t buy from this subgenre. It’s expensive and irrelevant to me. The forty dollar price tag on this one might make the cut but I’ll have to see the trailer first. Maybe sooner if you’re usually will pass, but people like me MIGHT even it out. Just something to think about.
Yeah I would take a long fight and the heroine gradually being hummiliated and worn out rather than sex….sex at the end maybe as a finisher but not my cup of tea.
I bought the Spider Girl one for the heroine and the fight even if short was at least long enough, but the price tags don’t justify this most of the time.
I feel you. Im more in for the sexual perils than the straight up penetrative sex
Love your work! I would love option 2 as I have loved all your hardcore work, but I can understand it’s the actress preference, and can work with the as is release, I LOVE your unmasking releases! Would love to see a hardcore sequel!
Option 1 and would love a good superheroine podcast
I’m gonna make my predication; Gwen is Melody Mark
That was my guess originally as well. But we now know the model is probs softcore only….
Would have loved melody as Gwen though. She fits the bill perfectly.
Melody Marks does hardcore.
Melody is a hardcore actress, I wouldn’t shoot softcore with her. She does love Spider-Gwen though
Is she available for customs?
As of now, through me, I would say no. You could always contact her through her twitter though, she’s always up to something
Too bad. I’d LOVE to see a sequel to Therapy.
Oh yeah! Looking much forward to this one and can’t wait to see a trailer or more images. I love the whole unmasking movie idea where you don’t know who is behind the mask! Love your movie with spider-woman as it offers so much of what I love. A great costume and mask, a hot actress, peril, gassing, and a VERY good unmasking. For future unmasking movies I would recommend: Spoiler. The version with the full face mask. I imagine a black latex mask would be great for unmasking struggle as it stretches very nicely. The unmasker could then yank… Read more »
You are assuming I am going to keep making unmasking secret identity reveal films. As of now I have no plans to do another. Money talks though. If this film is successful Id consider it, if it isn’t – I probably wont do another
Well, I am hoping you will do more!
But if not, any videos with great unmasking struggles, mask damage, unmasking attempts, and unmaskings are HIGHLY appreciated… at least by the unmasking community 😉
P.S.: I already pre-ordered it and made a post on the special forum to promote it a bit.
Seems to be a lot of people who are cool with Option 1: As-Is I am still hoping for this to do well enough to warrant reshoots but and I beg of you please read this: Only Preorder the film if you are currently cool with Option 1: AS-IS http://www.superheroinelimited.com/sg-preorder We will see what kind of movement there is with option 1 to reassess if reshoots will even be a viable option. If I only get like 5 preorders… then probably not happening. SOME MORE INFORMATION BEFORE YOU PREORDER RELEASE DATE: NEXT MONTH… MAYBESOFTCORE FILM (This is NOT a hardcore… Read more »
I did my part
I did my part. Looking forward to this video.
Option 1 has my money. If a different version happens, that’s good too.
Did my part 🙂
To clarify is the release date:”next month… maybe” now locked into next month?
Was the only thing putting the release at risk the options (1,2,3) and now you’ve locked in for us to be happy for 1 before purchase we can look forward to it? Any indication of begining, middle or end of month?
Obviously there’s always unknowns as your in the middle of editing but keen for the release as soon as possible?
I’ll buy as-is. I like that it’s cheaper, and unmasking gets me excited to see if it’s someone I know or a new actress. I prefer the hardcore, but I am ok with softcore since it’s cheaper. Some of my favorite actresses only do softcore i.e. Coco
There is a great group of actresses who don’t shoot hardcore, it be nice to work with some of them
Random thought in actresses, would love to have Mia Malkova back in the genre. Now that she is enhanced, she would fill the costumes differently than before. Love her big or small, up top
I’ll be down for option 3, love the unmasking. Also always keeping an eye on the Killing Joke! Thanks for the honesty
For me: 1) Sell the Spider Gwen film as is. Bad things like this happen to everyone. Better to focus on future films than waste money to try and fix/make it better. I’ll probably still enjoy it as is 🙂 2) Would not mind a sale of your films, especially some of the older ones that I might be missing. 3) Crazy idea to help you recoup money, but what if you did a group custom where you control everything for the film but people can contribute money for elements/ideas that they want to see and that you approve of.… Read more »
“3) Crazy idea to help you recoup money, but what if you did a group custom where you control everything for the film but people can contribute money for elements/ideas that they want to see and that you approve of. This would cover a lot of the expenses so that the film would have a better chance of breaking even / making a profit. Some other producers have used this idea to de-risk their films.” I am pretty sure I pioneered that whole thing. So I am the producer who has done this to de-risk my films. While I like… Read more »
The screenshots look amazing, Damien!
I am definitely going to pre-order it, and I would prefer Option 2. But I don’t really mind if you release the film as is. Hope this helps!
Besides it being short are you happy with how the sex scene plays?
I think the BJ scene is great. The sex scene is beautifully shot and has a great ending
I’m fine with any of the options for Spider Gwen. I’ll gladly buy AS IS, or gamble on the possibility of a reshoot. I’m in it for the character, actress reveal, and hopefully some beatdown. Thanks for the transparency and keep being awesome!
