Dream Team Making it happen in Ecuador!!!
Hello Dream Team!!!
Our apologies for not sending an update sooner. We have been rolling non-stop since we completed our workshop in Santa Fe at the LPA - Nalip's Latino Producer's Academy. There DreamTown was given a special award and selected as one of 5 projects that will be given 1 Year+ of continued Mentorship by award winning experts and film professionals that will join our team and help us get all the resources needed to be complete the film and get major distribution either in TV and fingers crossed a theatrical distribution as well.
For now we are SUPER FOCUSED on completing the actual filming and production phase!
Thanks to all of our Supporters and backers here in Kickstarter, right after completing the LPA we prepped and then recently traveled to Ecuador to continue filming!!!
The DreamTown crew has been in the midst of filming for the last week and will be here until the 16th of September!! Thanks to you we are getting so much amazing video coverage of our stories and tons of photos and behind the scenes!!
We have been traveling in towns with limited internet access so have not yet been able to upload photos or video yet but will be able to do so very soon!! SO STAY POSTED!
ALSO this is a unique opportunity for you to SEND US ANY QUESTIONS you may have for our main characters in the film: CARLOS, ANIBAL AND ULISES.
We can then incorporate them into our interviews and behind the scenes then post them here for you! As well as on our facebook page!
We really look forward to sharing more personal experiences from our shoot and introducing you to our crew that is helping us here in Ecuador as well as personal messages from our characters.
Until then we carry each and every one of you with us in our hearts uplifting our spirits as every day we are here has been made possible by you!
With tremendous gratitude and appreciation!
