Trial of Labor Summer Update


As we tie up loose ends, we want to thank you for your endless enthusiasm and support for "Trial of Labor." Your faith in the project, kind words of encouragement, and inquiring emails have helped carry us through to this point. The last two years have been a constant search for a universal story that transcends the boundaries of VBAC; we believe we have found it and are looking forward to sharing it with you.

Currently we are preparing to fulfill those long awaited Kickstarter rewards! In addition to working on the final visual and sound elements, we are assembling the film’s credits. If you donated to the project at the $50 level or above and opted to be included in the credits, please message us on Kickstarter or email with your first and last name OR your organization/business name - whichever you would like to be credited as. Please send your reply by August 1, 2014.

We have lots of exciting things in store and will be posting news and updates on the Trial of Labor Facebook page. Please “like” our page to get the latest on the film. We encourage you to share the page with your friends and let them know that you funded this project!

Many thanks,

Light At The End Of TheTunnel

Thank you for your interest and generous support in 'Trial of Labor'. We are excited to announce that the film has come a long way and that the completion light at the end of the tunnel is finally in sight. We appreciate your patience as we continue working our way through this important behemoth project on a shoe string budget.

Towards the end of 2013 we completed an additional round of filming. After creating several rough cuts, the direction and feeling of 'Trial of Labor' has become substantially more lucid. As we approach picture lock we have begun consulting with a talented team of music professionals on a musical concepts and scoring to help tell the story. We still have lots to do and will keep you posted as we jump over the hurdles and move closer to completion.  

Yours in Health,

Elliot and Rob
