I hope everyone's New Year is off to a wonderful start. At this time last year, we were in the final stages of Pre-Production for IN THE MORNING. Currently, we are in the final stages of Post-Production. Not a day goes by that I am not filled with gratitude for this journey. For this tremendous opportunity. Again, I cannot thank you enough for making this film possible. As we continue to fine tune our work, the film continues to reveal itself more and more. Now that additional resources have come together, we'll be able to shoot a bit more in the coming weeks. We'll return to the edit with a wealth of new ideas and material to explore, and we're excited to do so!
I am also thrilled to report that the rewards are coming!!! With the exception of the rewards associated with the finished film (i.e the DVD and screening) all other rewards will be sent in the next few weeks. We do have a special thank you to hold you over until the DVD arrives! If you haven't yet, please make sure you fill out your backer rewards survey. It's the only way we'll have a shipping address to send the rewards. Please note that some rewards will ship separately, as they are coming from different manufacturers.
I'm leaving you with a sneak peak of the backer reward T-shirt, designed by one of IN THE MORNING'S Costume Designers, Gary Pridgeon. Gary and his partner Neishea Lemle are amazing collaborators who did a spectacular job with our costumes. You can see more of his work here.
Here's the shirt, and a glimpse of myself and the designers with our cast, after our first shoot day. A happy day, made possible by YOU!!
With love, light and gratitude,
