Post Production Update


I'm working on a new edit of the film and am bit by bit approaching the fine cut. If we are able to shoot additional material as scheduled in August (see below), I should have a locked picture by the end of the summer.

I've decided to add a series of scenes to the film so we'll be shooting more footage once Alan has some free time this August. Right now he's shooting his second feature (and this one can afford to pay him!). The film works as is, but this series of visuals will help widen the scope of the film and give some of the existing scenes a stronger impact. It will also help tell the story more visually and take the burden off of the dialogue.

We need to raise additional funds to cover sound editing and mixing, music and sound effects recording, color correction, and DVD mastering and copying. I am hoping to raise $7,000 - $10,000 to cover these costs. I am in the planning stages for fundraising events in NYC and other select cities.

YOU can help by visiting the fundraising page on this website -- all donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law. All investors of $20 or more will receive a DVD of the completed film, and investors of $100 or more will receive Associate Producer credit. If you're a starving artist like many of us, please forward info on this film to any patrons you may know -- every little bit helps, and so far this film has been funded through the generosity of movie fans from across the country.
