Update #13 - Wow!
So, it's been a terrific week for our little film.
We've had our world premiere, we've got some great reviews from people we respect, we showed our film at the Dallas Film Festival and sparked some fascinating debates during the Q&A. To cap it all off, this week we went to the taping of The Colbert Report where Don McLeroy was the special guest.
The reception so far has been great and, as I always say, we couldn't have done it without all of you. Here's a great article from yesterday summarizing all of our reviews thus far: http://tmdailypost.com/article/education/revisionaries-explores-sboe
It's also encouraging to know that we've started fulfilling some of our rewards. We've given some of you your credits in the film (soon to be posted to IMDB) and we've had quite a few kickstarter people come to our screenings at the festivals and it's been a thrill to meet some of you guys.
Here are a few bits that might interest you:
First, here's a link to our new trailer - http://therevisionariesmovie.com/trailer.html
Also, a link to the Colbert Report interview with Don McLeroy that aired on Monday night - http://www.colbertnation.com/the-colbert-report-videos/413074/april-23-2012/don-mcleroy
Don, Kathy and Ron were all in New York for our premiere and we got a great picture with them on the Tribeca Film Festival red carpet (attached)
Anyway, we're gearing up for some more interesting weeks ahead. We've got the Boston Film Festival and Hot Docs in Toronto coming up soon. It's all very exciting and we thank you all for your support.
