PRE-PRODUCTION UPDATE!

Hello Everyone! I’m sorry it has taken a bit to get back to all of you. We miss you! It gives me much excitement to be back communicating with all of you, our precious 169 of you! We have been real busy mapping out the rest of our financing for the film so that we can film October-November 2012. Yes, that’s right…. Thanks to you and kickstarter we will film this year (just as anticipated). In order to do so we will set up the official pre production shop in September (I will let you the exact date and even send pics of the crew). We are delighted to announce that the lovely and talented Arlene Tur will make her way back to Miami and will work alongside Tony and I as Producer until we start filming that is and then she will make way for her starring role as Lucy in “We All Want The Same Thing”. We have hired our entertainment attorney, Ivan Parron who has also invited us to be a part of The Florida Bar panel discussing Crowd Funding in Orlando in September. Feel free to call me if anyone needs some crowd funding advice. ☺ I am also happy to announce my brother, Arturo Rovirosa, who has already assisted us with the campaign will now officially join us and take on the role of Social Media Manager (with I’m sure many other tasks to tackle as well). Luckily he is very talented at wearing many hats. And his new assignment is making sure all of you get the rewards we promised. In order to do so we need to make sure you are all connected with us on FB and Twitter. Arturo will also be emailing you for mailing address details in order to fulfill the rewards. We will keep you posted on our progress. All our best, Tony & Rebecca

We are the first feature film out of miami to be funded via Kickstarter (that's the next press release). :)  

It's TIME TO ROCK N ROLL .... pre production has already begun!   We will start ironing out many details starting by reviewing the amazing and talented actors/dancers that came out to cast last week and then host another casting with full readings, we will start securing the crew and locations and all the legal bits that go behind the scenes in black and white.   And much much more!  

We look forward to continue sharing this journey with you and invite you to always jump in where you can. 

Please make sure that you are connected with us on Facebook (weallwantthesamething) and twitter (@faithfilms).   We are constantly posting updates there as well. Although, the campaign has finished our communications via kickstarter will continue to build and keep you informed of our progress.  

We are forever grateful to all of you for joining us!   THANK YOUUUUUU!   GRAAAAAAACIAS!  

We love you!

Tony & Rebecca
