Post Funding Update
Friends and Backers of WFJ,
We've made some serious headway with editing. I used a portion of the money raised to hire an assistant editor for three weeks. During that time we roughed out the entire sequence and constructed a narrative that I think works really well. Now the task is to go through a review process and really work at rounding out the characters. The temptation is to front load the film with all sorts of character development and cultural insight and then back load the second half with narrative development. It's a tough task to figure out how to balance those two together and to interweave them.
Next week I will return to South Carolina for some much needed b-roll footage of the area / environment along with publicity photos.
Then I'll complete the editing process, coordinate the soundtrack and get audio and color done. It's exciting to see this come together.

For the heavyweight champion of Wrestling For Jesus, you will get your own championship belt. (You'll also get the DVD and T-shirt, but really, it's all about the belt). And there is only one - you are the undisputed heavy weight champ.
