Hello to all our faithful backers!
It has been a long time in the making and we have been so happy to have you all along for the ride.
At long last, we are thrilled to announce that Days of Gray will premiere on Friday, October 4th at 9pm at the Reykjavik International Film Festival! The screening will be a special cine-concert event featuring Hjaltalin performing the score live.
We know you have been patiently waiting for your rewards - we haven't forgotten you! As soon as we get a better handle on where Days of Gray will go from here, we will begin prepping and sending out whatever we can.
Thank you again for making this film happen and we cannot wait to get it out into the world. Let us know if you'll be at RIFF so we can give you a high-five and a thank you!

Hope you're staying cool this summer, NYC has turned into a boiler room! We're beating the heat by working on the Days of Gray poster with production designer Nell Tivnan in anticipation of our exciting premiere, which we'll be announcing soon...
In the meantime, we've been getting lots of requests about watching the film online! We will have it available privately for our backers once the film has premiered since we have to abide by festival rules.
For those of you awaiting physical prizes they will also be coming in the fall after we've unleashed Days of Gray upon the world.
We can't wait to share it with you! Or maybe you'll join us in person at the premiere? Stay tuned and keep an eye on our blog!

Hello, all our wonderful backers!
We wanted to give you a little update on where we are with the film that YOU helped us make. Currently, DAYS OF GRAY is picture locked and in the talented hands of our new sound designers, Luciano Vignola and Sara Stern.
What does this mean? Well, we thought the movie was done too. After holding a couple screenings for friends and family in Reykjavik, Paris and New York, we realized that something was missing. Just having the images and the musical score wasn't enough: people wanted to hear the footsteps in the house, the wind across the plains, the waves crashing by the girl's cave.
This is the first time we're making a feature length film and, as a result, it's the steepest (and most thrilling) learning curve I've ever experienced. So we decided that in order to make Days of Gray more cinematic, we needed to add a sound mix with foley.
Recently, we've been asked when the movie will be available to watch or download, and, although we wish we could give you a solid answer, it's as much a mystery to us as it is to you! Premieres, festivals, and distribution are all still up in the air, but we cannot wait to share the film with all of you in the best way possible. You're going to love it!
As always, email us any time with questions or just to chat, because we love hearing from you!

We continue to be blown away with how Days of Gray came to be - most notably, with invaluable help from YOU. Recently, we were featured as guest bloggers at Filmmaker Magazine online where we discuss our movie-making journey. It all started with the generous support from our Kickstarter backers, so we had to share it with you.

It can never be said too much : THANK YOU!
