    Then they might want to mention that in the kickstarter campaign, like ANYWHERE. The word scientology is never even used.

    Given the amount of literature and art concerning bipolar disorder his film will be lost in the sea.

    I've noticed with scientologists, or people raised as scientologist, they seem sheltered from the world at large and very unaware of the wider world of art, books, serious film, etc.. The amount of artists, writers and other creative types who have suffered with bipolar disorder is massive and their struggles and lives have been very well and sometimes beautifully documented.

    The scientology angle would be the only way this movie might stand out from the herd, which would be much needed in the independent/small production budget film field. Not even bothering to mention Scientology in the trailer or in descriptions is a big mistake.

    Not to mention hollywood bipolar stories never claimed to be fully true so i guess your wrong about that. in terms of film anyway.
