Dear fabulous Kickstarter Backers,
Hope you are all enjoying a fantastic summer, wherever you may be. By now, most of you have received the rewards for your generous pledges, and many thanks for the kind words about the film. Some are waiting for either James or I to deliver them in person (when I return to LA early July) as we re-send to the couple who have yet to receive theirs. There are a remaining few whom we are awaiting for your mailing addresses. Please email us at email@example.com. To all, thank you for your support and kind patience.
Congratulations to our key crew members graduating from USC Production M.F.A. Class of 2012 including director James Tarlton and 1st AD Becca Louisell.
More good news:
We have been invited to participate in the 35th Asian American International Film Festival (AAIFF), the country’s longest-running festival dedicated to showcasing works by artists of Asian descent. This year’s festival will take place July 25 – August 5, 2012 in Chelsea and Upper East Side in New York City. The official lineup and details will be released end of June. Do check it out: http://www.asiancinevision.org/aaiff/
In addition, OUT OF THE SHADOWS was a finalist in this year's National Short Film & Video Competition at the Oscar-qualifying USA Film Festival and missed out on a Jury Award. We hope to update you with more news of acceptance into film festivals later this year.
On a personal note, many thanks for the kind wishes on my first independent feature, TENTACLE 8. We are at the tail end of the post production phase and planning for the festival and acquisition options. I hope to share with you the completed film in the near future.
