Missing 411 February Update

Posted by David, Ben & Mike (Creator)

Hello Backers!

There have been many questions lately regarding rewards and the release date of the film. We wanted to take a moment and update everyone on the progress of the project. 

Missing 411 The Movie is currently deep in the post-production process. Feature length films generally take between six months and a year to edit. And that's when they have a script to work off of! Because we are editing a story together out of rough material, and we want to produce a product that everyone is proud of, it is not unrealistic to expect a year-long post production process. However, because we have an exceptionally gifted editor behind the wheel, we are abridging the year-long process to just five months! 

The graphic artists, the sound designer, and the musical composer have all been hired and are ready to receive a locked version of the film when the editor delivers it. Once all the artistic and creative elements have been combined the film will be sent out to intermediaries who will determine the best route of distribution for the film. When all of that is complete, we will then be able to premiere the film. Soon thereafter rewards will be sent out. The reason we have not sent them yet is because we have to do it all at the same time in order to save on shipping costs. If we were to send each item individually (the shirt, the poster, the DVD copy, etc.) we would spend our entire budget on postage!

We have a timeline set, and we are aiming for a summer 2016 release, which would be less than a year after we received the initial pledges to fund the film.

Please follow us on Twitter @Missing_411 and on Instagram @missing411 for regular film updates. 

Thank you for your continued patience and support!

      They said it's almost done and will be 100% completed before the end of the year. It won't be done in time for TIFF unfortunately. I have not heard about an update for the rewards though.

      Curious to know if there is any updates on the film. Last update was in February and with Summer quickly approaching (the anticipated release) was hoping we could get an update before the release. Thanks, and keep up the good work

      Cannot wait to see the finished product. Let's get this information out to wider audience.
      Have been recently looking into the Manchester canal deaths you mentioned on air with George Knapp (I think). Again, another fascinating mystery about disappearances/deaths in the city of Manchester UK. Hope you will write a book about this too.

      Now that I have the 5 book collectors set, I am enjoying myself as I read through them. So many strange happenings to contemplate!

      I have a request.... When you have a moment away from the editing suite, Could you place a link to the original Full-Resolution group photo of the Morrison Walk-On actors in the next update, or maybe in a "Mini-Update" with only the full size image?

      That great shot of us would be so much more enjoyable having all its details intact.

      I had such a great day during those reenactment scenes, It would be very nice to see everybody I enjoyed meeting and talking to during the shoot in the new image.

      Thanks everybody!

      Thanks for this update! Like many other commenters, I'm hoping you guys take the time you need to put together a high quality film. I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished product.

      This project is so vital to bringing this enigmatic subject to the vernacular of the public, U.S. and worldwide alike. All of the 411 Missing books shook me to my core, each one more profoundly than the last. That is my hope for this documentary, that it will shake people up and really get the conversation headed toward some sort of action. The story deserves to be told in the best way possible, if not for those of us who need to hear it, then certainly for those whose lives have been taken and the loved ones left behind with no answers. Thanks for taking the time to make it right, David, Ben and Mike. Peace be with you all.

      Thank you for the update. The 411 books are so eye opening.

    14. Toni Stafford on

      Quality takes time. I appreciate that this project is not being rushed. It's too important to do junk.
      Every missing person story I've heard just this year alone has triggered the "what ifs" that are covered by this investigation. Keep going, guys.

    15. Liliana Van Lawick on

      I agree with Erin. Take the time you need to perfect this movie. It is crucial that the information in the film be presented in the most forthright and factual form in for those who learn of this horrific reality for the first time through this venue.

    16. Erin on

      Each Missing-411 book is becoming more difficult to read. A Sobering Coincidence took me 2-3 months to read. David, please take the time to polish and hone this film into a brilliance that is hard to ignore. People must know about all these suspiciously missing people, the missing who don't make it into the books and the missing of the future. Take care and take your time.

    17. Cathy Healey on

      Awesome news!.....thanks for the update. Look forward to seeing the finished product.

    18. Mark Stringer on

      Keep at it guys! All of the hard work will be well worth it and these stories need to be told. I can't wait to see the finished article. if you need any help with anything going forward then let me know, I would be more than happy to help any way I can.
