The documentary STUDIO H is now IF YOU BUILD IT

Hi everyone!

We have been super busy with the film, and we have lots to share with you…

First off, we've officially re-titled the film "IF YOU BUILD IT". The response has been great so far! We are in the process of launching a website for the film, but for now you can find (and like) us on Facebook and we’ll be posting updates often.

Next is our upcoming… WORLD PREMIERE. This Saturday, April 6th, we will be having our debut screening in Durham, NC at the prestigious (and awesome!) Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. About fifty of us (cast and crew) will be attending the premiere, and the 1,200-seat theater is SOLD OUT for the event! 

We are just starting to schedule our film festival and special engagement screenings. If any of you have suggestions/connections to a festival in your area or if you have an idea for a special event screening, please email Christine at Great fits could be schools, architecture firms, libraries, town halls, etc… We want to bring the film to as many communities as possible and we have some partners that are ready and willing to help us make that happen. So let us know, and we can bring “IF YOU BUILD IT” to a theater near you!

We are hard at work figuring out our distribution plans for later this year... details are beginning to emerge as we write this. We will keep you up to date as this all begins to take shape.

Most importantly... THANK YOU ALL for helping us tell this story. It has been an incredible project for our whole team, and we would not have been able to complete it without each and every one of you.

More updates -- and Kickstarter rewards! -- to come soon!

We made it!

Hi everyone,

Just a quick word of thanks to all of you who helped us make our Kickstarter goal...

Over 300 of you kicked in... family members and friends, former teachers and classmates, co-workers and colleagues from way back when... the list goes on and on.

This whole Kickstarter endeavor has been an ongoing "It's a Wonderful Life" experience for the three of us... we turned to all of you for your enthusiasm and support, and you were there for us in spades.  We'll never forget that.

Have a wonderful holiday and, as we say in the film business, "we'll see you at the premiere."

All the best,
Neal, Christine, & Patrick, and the entire Studio H team

The final push begins!

Hi everyone,

Thanks to all of you who donated and helped spread the word about our film Studio H.  We now have over 200 donors giving over $24,000! We're in the last week of our Kickstarter Campaign and only have five days left... we need to make the final push to reach our goal.

We've uploaded another clip for you all. It's a little slice of life through the eyes of Stevie, one of Emily and Matt's students in Studio H.  

Thanks again for all your support, and please continue to help us spread the word!

Patrick & Christine, and the entire Studio H team
