Post-Production: Time to Edit!

2 likes

WHAT AN AMAZING COUPLE OF MONTHS!

Thanks to your support, we were able to shoot our film this summer! And what an adventure it was... complete with trials, tribulations, much training, lessons learned, obstacles overcome, contagious laughter, epic triumphs, oodles of fun, delicious food, and a whole lot of wonderful memories. We've got a great story coming your way, but first it's time to edit all those fabulous pieces together. The post-production marathon has begun!  We'll keep you updated as the film comes together.

I know we're late on some of the rewards. Sorry! We have not forgotten about you. We'll get those to you asap!

Thank you again for making this community filmmaking project possible. The students had a great time and learned SO MUCH. But don't take my word for it... take a look at this video! :-)

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE!!!

THANK YOU!

Good Morning Everyone!

We are so close to the finish line! With 5 hours left we still need to rase a few hundred dollars. What a shame it would be to lose the $20,446.00 that you have so graciously contributed. We need you in these final hours! 

Thank you so much again! Let's tell everyone we know to contribute just a few dollars in these last few hours!

FINAL DAY!

Hi Everyone!

This is so exciting!!!  If someone donates just $80.00 we will have reached $18,000.00! Will you raise your contribution? Can you ask a friend to contribute if they haven't. We have less than 24 hours to raise the remaining 2k! Lets make this happen! As always, THANK YOU! 

We know our goal is in reach!

Best, 

Aaron
