Forgotten Detroit...IS FINISHED!
...after 10 looooong months of post production, with more hurdles than I have the ability to count, FORGOTTEN DETROIT IS FINISHED!
...wow. It feels so fantastic to utter those words. And they are words that I would like to utter first to you, our loyal supporters over the past year. This movie would not exist without you. Yes, YOU. Think about that for a minute. You taking a few minutes out of your day and a few dollars out of your bank account made a movie. And as such, Sarah and I, and the rest of the FD team have credited you all individually on the final credits of the film. It's the least we could do for all your support. (Keep those eyes peeled for your name as the credits roll!)
"Thats's great Rick/Sarah/FD Team! Congratulations...but WHEN DO I GET to SEE IT?!"
The digital download of the film will be sent to your inbox anywhere from tomorrow until throughout the weekend. We're tinkering with the best delivery system at the highest quality possible. Stay tuned, and keep an eye on your inbox. It'll be a matter of hours before you can feast your eyes on the flick. DVDs and/or posters (for those of you who have them coming) will be mailed out as soon as they are assembled with bonus features, somewhere within the next couple months.
...and one more thing. We're also submitting the film to the Sundance Film Festival at the same time! Wish us luck as we embark on the next phase of the movie's life: in front of people's eyes!
Thank you sounds so underwhelming for what Sarah and I and the team feel. So...Turbo Thank you. Look for the flick soon!
Rick B and Sarah P and the FD Team.
