June Crowdfunding Update:
Way back in 2007 I ran a marathon and ½ marathons with my Digital SLR camera and took pictures. Marathons take a lot of training and hard work. The goal is to finish the race. Running a marathon is not about speed but about not giving up. Filmmaking is a marathon and it always takes longer than you think. We had a lot of targets and deadlines that we’ve missed due to do lack of funds, but just because we’re behind doesn’t mean we’re giving up We’re still working on grants and applications for funding.
Without or without funding we’re still pushing towards a short version of the film late fall or early 2017. There’s two sides to filmmaking; sometimes you’re blasting off like a rocket with no time to sleep, and other times you’re slowly putting the pieces together waiting for things to be ready. In filmmaking it’s referred to “hurry up and wait.” I know most of you don’t run marathons and you’re not used to the amount of time filmmaking can take. We are still offering refunds for anyone who would like one. As always, all we can do is keep going. We continue to be thankful for all your help and support and hope you have a great summer.
