Dear Wisconsin Rising Backers,
Greetings from Wisconsin Rising filmmaking headquarters in Burlington, Vermont!
Things are moving along steadily in the movie world over here.
We are knee deep in post production - we just finished the rough cut and recently had two screenings with a small team of advisors and producers. Both screenings were very productive full of important feedback and constructive ideas.
I am incorporating the feedback daily into the edits.
There are many changes to make and plenty of work ahead but the light is certainly at the end of the tunnel now!
The working timeline had a small detour this fall. I broke my foot and was in cast and crutches for six weeks followed by a walking boot and crutches for four weeks. It was a minor setback to the production, as one has very limited time they can productively work at a machine and edit while in a cast with a broken bone. That aside, I am all healed and healthy and happily moving forward!
If you have interest in helping in the final stages of the film send a note!
There is plenty of work to do and extra hands, even if they are far away, can be be helpful!
We have a need for help with film distribution, outreach, and raising final finishing funds.
Be in touch if you want to get active!
As I said, there is still much work to do before I bring the film to Wisconsin and beyond but we are getting close!
