We Made It!!!!!
Kickstart my heart!
I'm so humbled by all the support that has surrounded this film. There were times when I got a bit nervous about raising the 20K in 30 days, yet this project continues to inspire me with how it has a life of its own. I'm so honored to be part of this group of 182 people committed to the healing and reconciliation that this film represents.
For the past week we've been working non-stop on the soundtrack for Dakota 38. Both of our composers, Jay McKay and Jay Parrotta, have been blowing my mind with what they've been creating. We also had our buddy Brian Baumbusch record some guitar tracks which are great. I can't wait to share it with all of you soon. We've been working with a Dakota Hymn that the 38 sang before they were hanged and it's unbelievably powerful. I hope to upload a video of some of the recordings sessions soon.
Furthermore, I'll keep you all up to date as the journey of the film evolves. Tomorrow morning I'm headed to Minneapolis where we'll be showing the latest rough cut of Dakota 38 at Minnesota University tomorrow night (Nov. 19th) at 5 PM, and then also on Saturday at Ft. Snelling Visitor Center at 1:30 PM. If any of you are in that part of the world, you're more than welcome to join.
Thanks again to all of you. You guys are the best!
Much love from DC,
