So today was one of those days that reminds the crew and I why we became filmmakers.
Very few times in life are we afforded an opportunity to share emotional and inspirational stories with the world, that could possibly effect change.
Without giving away everything, we had a very emotional day interviewing and Jason David and his son Jayden. What an AMAZING father and brave, brave child, I would not wish the heartache the David's have been through on anyone.
Jayden Suffers from Dravet syndrome, and Davis was told his son would never walk or even really have much of a life. Jayden used to take 22 psychotic medications a day to help overcome with his over 400 daily seizers and Jayden is only 7 years old.
The footage we captured today is some of the most compelling footage I have ever filmed, and I can't wait to share it with the world.
We also interviewed Joe Rogan on Saturday the 9th before we flew down to California, my apologies for not getting behind the scenes pics, but Joe had already given us over two hours of his time after he did his stand up show in Edmonton. Good news is Joe gave a POWERFUL interview and kicked ass once again!
More updates from one of our last journeys to come in following days.
As always, thank you everyone for the amazing support.
So we are getting down to our final days of filming and what an adventure and learning experience it has been, just when you think you have a grasp on this concept, you sit down with some of the amazing people we were fortunate enough to interview and learn so much more....... Powerful stuff, and the footage is looking amazing in the editing room.
TEASER: The teaser will be released in January during Sundance, we are hoping to get some social media buzz during the festival, so please like,tweet,share and post like crazy once we release the teaser.
TRAILER: The film's trailer will be released on April 20th (4/20) originally we were hoping to release the film on this date, but in order to make the best possible film we could, plus meet the demand of our distributor Phase 4 Films with their 90 day delivery before release requirement, the 4/20 date was just not possible.
THEATRICAL RELEASE: Now depending on whether or not we get accepted into TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) will effect our theatrical release date. "If" We get into TIFF the theatrical release of the film will immediately follow the TIFF premiere which would be in September sometime, should we not be selected for TIFF, then the film's theatrical release will be in August.
CREDITS & REWARDS
Once we are near the end of the editing phase and are creating the titling and credits, this is when we will send out the information request sheet.
The information request sheet will be what we use to provide you with your well deserved credits and rewards, so PLEASE make sure to be the correct credit you want and the correct address. If you don't not put the correct information, we wont be able to change your credit once its on the screen.
With regards to the Blu-ray, dvd's and digital downloads, the release will go as follows. Theatrical release will come first, when the film is theatrically touring we will not be able to send you your blu-ray or dvd. Once the theatrical tour in over and the film is set to be commercially available, that will be the day your items are shipped, and there will be a little something special for all of those kickstarter supporters when you receive your well earned rewards.
That's it for now, please be sure to stay up to date on our Facebook page and Twitter @TheCultureHigh thank you again for the wonderful support and we are SOOOO EXCITED to release the film this summer
