Where Is "Dark Before Dawn" Now?
Don't you just miss our chatty old updates each week? We kind of miss them too, but if we were to message you every week right now you'd probably just think we were, like, your naggy old schoolteacher or something.
So instead we've been hoarding little bits of news until we had enough to make a tasty news-meal... or at least a tasty gossip-tapas. Did you hear? We heard that "Dark Before Dawn" has been buddying up to a bunch of festivals lately trying to get accepted. Like who, you ask? Litchfield Hills Film Festival might be a contender, one of our go-to favorites out in Connecticut. "Dark Before Dawn" even got a special waiver to submit late- hopefully that won't weigh against it! There was also the Las Vegas Native American Arts and International Film Festival which is a sentence unto itself. Also the Naperville Independent Film Festival, the Midwest Film Festival, and Outfest out here in California.
Right now we're just waiting for the acceptance letters to come pouring in any day now. We've told the mail man we can get him a dolly if the weight becomes to much. Any day now...
In the meantime we're keeping ourselves busy building our new project "Recalculating" up for production in May. We are in our LAST FOUR DAYS of our Kickstarter campaign for it as well: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/563909887/recalculating-part-of-the-insomniac-chronicles
Remember, if you backed "Dark Before Dawn" and you make a pledge to "Recalculating" Gwydhar is going to write you a hand written thank you note on top of all the other cool stuff you can get. Remember how much fun it was to watch "Dark Before Dawn" come together? Remember how great of a team we made? We can do it again! Jump on board! Even a few bucks will get your foot in the door, BUT if you top your pledge for "Dark Before Dawn" you'll be getting an original drawing from Gwydhar on your thank you note as well! Not a lame photocopy, an awesome- dare we say, "SCHWEET" hand drawn work of original art. Then everyone will think you're as sexy and cool as we do.
