Just a short note to let you know that the next major update to will go online on August 31, 2013 and will be another big one. However, one item has come up that could not wait until the end of the month.

Our good friend David Rolfe, BAFTA award winning British filmmaker, Shroud scholar and director of the first ever Shroud documentary, 1977’s The Silent Witness, has created a new feature film project called The Shroud Affair. To get the project started, David is using the innovative new fundraising technique called "crowd funding." With the script completed and the project ready for development, David launched an online crowd funding campaign today to raise the funds necessary to go the next level. You can find out more information about the film, view a trailer and make a contribution to the project on the Indiegogo website at this link: The Shroud Affair.

David has included a number of items from our Website Store as gifts for those who make contributions to his project, so STERA, Inc. will also benefit from the campaign. We’ll include more details in our August 31st update but wanted to get the word to you today. And don’t forget to visit the Private Subscribers Page for exclusive offers not available to the general public. See you on August 31st!
