A couple weeks ago, my producer Janice and I, headed up to Massachusetts to show Norton Juster and his family the unreleased finished film. It was right after the snow storm and we bundled our way into the Juster's home, who welcomed us with warm coffee and a nice large sofa to settle into and watch the film together.
It was magical! Norton, who until then had not seen any prior edit, was thrilled and moved. He gave the film the highest praise I can imagine, telling us that the film truly captures the spirit of The Phantom Tollbooth. And then we had champagne!
Here's some photos from our visit. Me and Norton giving a little toast. Norton and Janice sitting down to get some serious business done. And Norton wishing us all a Happy Valentine's Day.
We would like to thank you all for all your patience and promise that as soon as we are able to we will deliver the last rewards (DVDs and Downloads) that you have all waited so patiently and supportively for. We are still figuring out our marketing, distribution and premier (and other last little tidbits like legalities and insurance), to make sure we set it all up in the best way to get this documentary to all The Phantom Tollbooth fans... and beyond!
So thank you all for your continued support and we'll continue to keep you updated. If you haven't already connected with us on FACEBOOK and TWITTER, please do! We're updating regularly on there, and there are great photos and stories to enjoy, and lots of fellow fans to connect with.
Hannah (& the crew!)
