We know that it's been a while since we last posted, so we wanted to give you a quick update on the current state of the film and the rewards.
Rejection is always heart tearing and sometimes infuriating, but it is also apart of the long process of finding an audience. Film Festival selection is incredibly subjective and no matter how great a film you believe you've made, for whatever reason some people will not feel the same way. BUT I do know there are plenty more and I believe the film will find a place that loves it just as much as we do. With all that said, festival rejections can sometimes be eye opening and in the passed few months we've made some subtle changes to the film that we feel make it better, including:
- New Voice Overs
- New End Music
- A Few New Edits
Also, thanks to many of the donations we've received by screening the original cut of the film privately online and via Paypal, we've been able to Master the sound and Color Correct the film. The only thing we still want to do is make a film print, which we are waiting to do once the film gets accepted into a fest.
Now, I know many of you want to see and hear these new changes and you will on the DVD.
DVDs, Film Frames, and Story Boards
Unfortunately, because of festival rules, we still cannot distribute DVDs to the public until after the film has played at a festival, otherwise it will be disqualified.
Also, for those that donated to get the film frames and storyboards, we cannot cut the frames off just yet because we need the original film footage to make the print. Once we are able to, the storyboards will go along with the frames.
I apologize for the delay of these last few rewards. Please trust me when I say that I am extraordinary eager to get you these rewards as fast as possible.
Thank you all again for your incredible faith and generosity toward myself and the project you have shown. I promise the next update will be filled with good news!
