Lovely backers! Just a little update to brighten your day. Happy Spring!
Film Independent's Documentary Lab
Top Spin was recently selected to be part of Film Independent's Documentary Lab, an 8-week long program designed to help filmmakers in post-production on their projects. Film Independent is the organization that puts on the LA Film Festival and the Independent Spirit Awards (basically the Oscars for independent film!). We've had so many talented filmmakers offer advice and share insights, but the most exciting part is coming up next week!
On Monday, we will be showing our first-ever rough cut to our mentor, Doug Blush and getting feedback from him and the rest of the Lab Fellows. Doug most recently edited The Invisible War, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary this year, so we know we are in good hands!!!
After working on this film for almost two years, it's humbling to see how much we've learned and grown. And we are constantly reminded of your generosity, support, and belief in us and this project. For that, we are eternally grateful. The finish line is near - thank you for sticking with us til the bitter end!
Please Support Our Consulting Producer's Latest Project
Jamie Meltzer, our former professor at Stanford and one of Top Spin's Consulting Producers, recently launched a Kickstarter for his latest film! Freedom Fighters is about a group of exonerated men on a mission to free innocent men still behind bars. A powerful story worthy of your attention. They have just 8 days left and are still shy of their goal, and could use a little love!
