Because of you...
Hello everyone! You've been supporting us from the very beginning in helping us make our musical a reality. I cannot thank you enough (thank you again!). Some of you may be aware that we recently were able to raise additional funding to have our film scored by a live orchestra! In fact many of you here backed our second campaign for which I am truly appreciative.
I'd like to share just a quick video highlight (see below) of our 12-hour recording day on July 25th. I'm still recovering from the entire experience. It was truly a sight to see and hear.
A more detailed and comprehensive video will be made of the entire session but I just had to preview something now to show how all of you have made a life-long dream come true....of having a film scored with an orchestra (and it couldn't be more appropriate that it's for a musical!).
I honestly feel that the songs and film have been brought to a whole new level. It's all thanks to your generosity and support. I never would've been able to do this without you.
The plan now is to finish the film completely by late-August and submit it for the 2012 festival circuit. Shortly after, I hope to release a few songs from the film to share with you -- as well as have the full soundtrack ready before the end of the year. I'll also be working on a special edition DVD that everyone will be getting from the $25 backer-level and up -- so that should be coming early next year as I'll be spending time on behind-the-scenes footage, new interviews, cast/crew commentaries, deleted scenes and all the bells/whistles.
I've had a few industry professionals sneak peek the "work-in-progress" of the film and have received some amazing feedback. There has been great praise for the lead performances by Joe Schermann and Christina Rose....and it's been called an "audience pleaser" to "a remarkable achievement." Needless to say I can't wait to share the film with you all!
I really appreciate your support. I hope to share more great news with you throughout the coming months with future screening info! Fingers crossed!
Enjoy the video!
Gary King (writer/director)
