Hey Jabberwocky supporters! We just did a major redesign of the website. We'll also be adding more content there as we go through pre-production and production. Check it out!
Don't forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter too!
Hey guys! Ben Lambeth, producer for Jabberwocky here. It's been a while since our last update, but I wanted to let you know where we are with preproduction. Our terrific director Donovan and a few other key crew members spent the past few weeks in south France attending the Cannes Film Festival, showing off our team's last film, The Therapist.
While in the presence of all the amazing films and filmmakers that made it to the festival this year, it opened our eyes to what Jabberwocky really needs in order to get to a level where it could compete at a place like Cannes. With that in mind, we're now in the process of rewriting the script to make an even more compelling and layered story with characters that are more dimensional and realistic. I can't get into specifics right now, but I'll be sending out more news via our mailing list and on the Facebook page as preproduction continues.
Before everyone left for France, we took a volunteer crew out into the woods of Norcross, GA where, using gear we either owned or could borrow easily, we shot a quick teaser for the film. This shoot served two purposes: to create an awesome promo to promote the film as it takes off, and to give our special effect people some actual footage to start testing their magic on.
Here are a few behind-the-scenes pictures. You can see them all here at our Facebook page.

In the future, I'll mostly be using these Kickstarter updates to let you know when the donor rewards become available and when teasers or trailers are uploaded. If you want to follow the project more closely with more emails like this, join the Gray Hall Productions mailing list by clicking here.
Thanks again for all your help and generosity, and Beware the Jabberwock!
