LEAVE ME LIKE YOU FOUND ME will have its world premiere next month at SXSW! I am beyond thrilled to share this great news with you. This is the festival premiere I have been dreaming about, sometimes having nightmares about and now jumping for joy about.

This is such a fun & exciting part of the process because we will be sharing the film with an audience for the first time and in doing so will be starting a new chapter in the life of the film! And thanks to the overwhelming success of our Kickstarter campaign, finishing the film and getting it to Austin with the usual goodies (postcards, posters, buttons, etc) is going to be a lot less stressful. I'd like to thank you all again for being a part of that. 

The film festival runs March 9-17...we don't know our premiere slot yet but we will soon. If you don't already, please 'like' us on Facebook. We will be posting updates on screening times & other fun fest related info to our film page and it will be the best way to stay in the know about what is happening with the film.

More good news to follow, we hope! x,a

PS. This also means that everyone who pledged at the $15 & above level will be receiving a postcard from us from Austin in March!! 

We did it & then we did it again!!

My apologies for the delay in sending this update - it has been a CRAZY couple of days trying to get ready for Sundance. But my excitement has not waned -- We killed it! Not only did we reach our goal - we doubled it. It is truly amazing. Thank you everyone for not only backing the project but for helping spread the word. It was both touching and encouraging to see all of the facebook posts and tweets about the project & the campaign. And because of all of your generosity and support this film is going to be better than I ever hoped. I'm so excited to get back to Los Angeles and dive into it! I've just arrived in Park City for the Sundance premiere of Black Rock (which I know many of you have also supported). From here I'm headed to the Rotterdam Film Festival & then it's back to LA to finish Leave Me Like You Found Me. You'll be receiving messages soon asking for your details so we can start sending out rewards. Expect rewards to start coming in March. 2012 is going to be an incredible year and I am looking forward to sharing updates about the progress of the film with you all! x,a

Holy Moly - We did it!

I am astonished & beyond grateful. We kicked off this campaign only a few days ago & we have already reached our goal -- All of you amazing people made that happen. THANK YOU!! I expected to spend the holidays biting my nails as we crept towards our goal but thanks to the strong initial push (ie. you guys!) I can relax knowing that we will be able to finish the film. AND we still have 27 days left in our fundraising campaign. From here on out every dollar raised over our initial goal is going to go towards making the finished film even better. So please, keep on facebooking/tweeting/smoke-signaling - because it's working! xoAdele
