Sorry it's been such a long time since I've last posted. For those of you who know me, you know this is not uncommon. Since I have posted last I have received the funding! I got the impression that I would have to wait for everyone's payment to clear, and then Amazon would hold it for 14 days, and then it would take another 5-7 days to get to my bank account. But, somehow, I was able to access the funds in a little over a week! It confuses me, but I have resisted thinking too much about it.
So, I have already applied some of the funds to mucho editing software and have helped to pay for a MUCH NEEDED computer upgrade. I am FINALLY editing on the computer that I should've started with. Next, I will pay for the music licensing and start rounding up what I need to gather together the premiums. Then, I should be done putting the finishing touches on the documentary by around the end of April and can begin to enter it into some upcoming film festivals.
Of course, the next big step after that will be the first screening on June 2nd which is looking like it going to turn out to be quite an event! If any of you are in Kansas City, Missouri around then, I suggest you check it out! I will be shooting more footage that night to include on the DVD extras.
And then will come more film festivals. So, that is what I have planned so far. I hope that this finds you all well and, again, thanks SO SO much for contributing to and helping out with this project! It is SO appreciated!
