For many of you, this will come as no surprise. I have personally contacted a good many of you to tell you that the project, REACH is finally finished. It is cut, colored, mixed, and printed (don't even get me started on what it took to make a single blu-ray copy.)
We had a tiny screening for about 20 people (the cast and their friends/family), and another small showing for a few friends and supporters in Orange County. Both were tests to see if the major goal was achieved: Is this thing good enough to make it?
So here's the short of it: Everyone loved it! We got tons and tons of support, love, enthusiasm. I think everyone had hoped it would be good, and everyone was pleasantly surprised that it was fantastic.
So what's next? How do you see it? All that?
Right now, the final version lives in a protected file on VIMEO. The next step is to cut a sizzle-reel, a short 5 min version of highlights. That is nearly complete. I will then start pitching it like crazy. I have some good leads, and am making a lot of introductions. What I know is that it is good enough to be on television. What I'm learning is how to make that happen.
Please write me if you would like to see the final product. I think everyone who helped out is more than entitled, and so many of you have ended up in the credits besides! I'll provide the password. I ask that you keep it private as it is not intended for public viewing until I know more about where it is going to end up.
Thanks again so much.
