It's been WAY TOO LONG since we updated you! We can reassure you that we are still alive and well...and making a killer film for you all! The only reason it's taking so long is that we are spending your money very wisely and trying to make a film that will impress every last one of our Kickstarter supporters : )
Since we last updated you, a lot has happened!! Here are a few highlights:
- We've shot over 200 hours of fights, sermons and interviews...and even projectile vomiting!
- The project has been featured on Gawker, Huffington Post, USA Today and more!
- 120,000 Views on our promo trailer in 2 days!!!
- Tons of press interested in the film...BBC, USA Today, Der Speigel and London Times are just a few that have approached us.
- We were accepted to the IFP Spotlight on Docs Program in NYC where we showed chunks of the film and had some great talks with potential buyers and partners.
- 2 pastors fought each other...need I say more?
- Edited the film down to a rough 80 minute feature length.
- Test Screened the film in Denver! This was the first time we've shown a rough cut of the film in a theater. The response was great!
The good news is...WE ARE ALMOST FINISHED!! This month we plan to film the last scene of the movie. One of our main characters is making a comeback fight and we are very excited to be with him for the fight. It's a crucial scene in the film and we've been waiting a long time for it. After that, we will spend another month or two editing and hopefully have the film ready for a summer premiere!
We will definitely update you again as soon as we know where the film will premiere. Thanks again for all your support. I don't think you all understand how low budget our film is and how vital your contributions were to our success. We can't wait to show you the film later this year!
