High Tech Low Life: Welcome to Post!
Dear Friends (old and new),
We are blown away by how generous you all have been and so happy to know this project means as much to you as it does to us. After years of production and shooting and countless months holed away with the edit, it’s nice to know we have your support.
As Zola says on his website, “You never know what you can do until you try.” So here we go!
The next few weeks are going to be fast and furious as we complete the color correction and mix, and try to reach our funding goal so we can pay for it all. Every penny of your generous contribution will go towards expenses like the video conform, color correction, mix, licensing of archival and music, outreach and costs to help Zola attend the premiere.
We’ll keep you updated as things progress. Stay tuned for an upcoming piece in Indiewire and an Op-Docs video in the New York Times. And check out this story on the Huffington Post where HIGH TECH, LOW LIFE is listed as one of five films to fund on Kickstarter!
And here’s a shot from our color correction. Thanks to Final Frame Post for doing an incredible job so far!
And please share this Kickstarter campaign with anyone you think might be interested.
