We've Been Awarded a Jerome Foundation Grant!
I am thrilled to announce that I have received a $10,000 grant from the Jerome Foundation that will go towards our post production costs. This is a big deal for us, especially given the high caliber of projects we're sharing the award with. You can see the whole list here, in the press release that was just posted on the Jerome Foundation's website. We are thrilled and honored to receive this grant and will spend the money on one of the most important parts of this project -- the green screen effects.
In other news, I passed the halfway mark in the rough edit today! Bit by bit, the movie is coming together.
Thank you all for your continued support. I'll be in touch with more news as it develops.
