New Website and Siskel Film Center Showcase
Dear Kickstarter Backers,
Unbroken Glass has had an exciting few weeks since our last update. After a few delays and technical snafu’s you all are the first to hear about the launch of our new website: www.unbrokenglassfilm.com.
We’ve got an extended demo as well as a filmmaker blog on the new website. Most importantly we’ve added a “shout out” to all of our Kickstarter supporters at the donate section. (If you can’t find your name there let us know, and we’ll update it right away!)
On top of all of this web wonder, I’ll be showing some new material from the film at Kartemquin Films’ Spring Showcase at the Gene Siskel Film Center on May 15th. For Chicago area supporters this is a great opportunity to meet the filmmakers as well as find out more about Kartemquin Films, Chicago’s documentary powerhouse in it’s 5th decade of social issue filmmaking.
For those of you not in Chicago, don’t worry, it’s just a matter of time before we’re going to be in a theater near you…..
As far as production goes, after much sleuthing, I’ve located a few old friends of my parents. Shoots are being schedule for the early summer. Stay tuned for more details.
And as always, thanks for your continued support.
