I know your first question: Is the movie done!?
It's so close we can taste it. We've had quite a year, and we're currently working over our sound design in a last pass before we start public screenings. You can get a taste of what's to come here in our official trailer:
Pretty cool right? And that song is pretty awesome, right? It's Midnight Sour, by Gabe Goodman, and it's just one of twenty awesome songs on our soundtrack. Thanks to our music supervisor Perry Eaton of Allston Pudding Music Blog, we assembled a soundtrack full of music by some of Boston's best independent music acts. The best part? It's free to download here.
Finally, we were featured on the cover of the Boston Phoenix for an article about Boston's growing indie film scene, Boston's premiere alt-weekly. While the Phoenix sadly had to close its doors this spring, you can still read the article online here.
We've had a gangbuster year, and most of our production team are gearing up for our next venture, a made-for-the web anthology of short films called Allston Xmas. Taking place on Boston's annual moving day, this project will follow a group of young people who find their friendships, relationships, and attachment to material things tested by the annual ritual of moving. You can follow us on facebook and twitter, and we'll be launching a fundraising campaign soon!
We hope you're as excited as we are for what has come and for what is coming soon. We can't wait for Day of Youth to be finished so that we can share it with you, and we're hope you'll all be on board for our next adventure too.
Backer surveys will be coming out as soon as we're ready to deliver your much-deserved and long-awaited rewards.
Thank you all for your support on this adventure!
& The Cast and Crew of Day of Youth
