Rough Cut Screening Next Week!

Hello Supporters of Zuluhoops,

It's been a productive summer in the editing room!   We are closing in on a new rough cut of Zuluhoops and are looking forward to screening it for live audiences very soon.  The folks at Kartemquin (the much acclaimed Chicago-based collective that made Hoop Dreams, The Interrupters and many other documentary greats) have graciously agreed to host a community screening and give us some feedback on September 27.  We are thrilled to have their valuable input.

In the meantime, we would like to invite all of you to a sneak preview next Thursday, August 30 at 6pm.  This one will be small and casual and our goal is to assess the reactions of regular viewers (as opposed to other documentary makers).  Depending on how many of you take me up on this offer, we will either screen at my home in Andersonville (for a smaller crowd) or at Columbia College (for a larger crowd).  Please let know if you can make it asap so that we can finalize details.

For those of you who don't happen to live in Chicago or can't attend for whatever reason, I'll be posting some new scenes from the film on this sight in the coming weeks.  And if your pledge earned you an online preview of the rough cut, expect to received a digital link in September.

Thanks once again for your support!  We couldn't have made it to this milestone without you.
