Hello Everyone!

We’re back! We’ve been buried deep in the editing room to wrap post-production on THE JONESES, and are excited to say we just finished our sound mix! While production on THE JONESES has taken much longer than we anticipated, we are very excited for all of you to see the final film! The increased production time allowed the film's narrative to really take shape and made for some truly surprising and inspiring shifts in the storyline. We’d like to thank you again for supporting our project, and appreciate your patience and continued support.

We'll have some more exciting announcements coming up -- so stay tuned!

Thanks again!!!

All the latest on "The Joneses"...


Hello Everybody!

We’ve been extremely busy these past several months but we have lots of exciting news to share with you! Also, for a first behind-the-scenes look at the film, be sure to follow us and check out our brand spanking new Instagram page that we just finished updating today:

As production + editing have been taking us longer than initially expected, we are happy to move each day a bit closer towards the film’s completion. We are thrilled to say that we have recently been awarded the Frameline Completion Grant. In addition, we are in the Top 11 finalists for the SFFS documentary completion Fund ! Fingers crossed! Also, this past fall, THE JONESES was selected for IFP Week’s Spotlight on Documentaries which was an amazing opportunity to introduce the project to folks in film & TV.

We will be sure to keep you posted as things progress with the film. Thanks again for all of your patience and support for our documentary! We truly appreciate all the help!

Catching Up with "The Joneses"

Hello All!

It's been a very, very long time since you've last heard from us about The Joneses documentary and for that we wish to apologize. None of the work that we've been able to do in the past year would have been remotely possible without you, our donors and supporters, so we're really sorry for keeping you in the dark. WE LOVE YOU!!!  

At this point in the process, we've been heavily involved in shooting and editing for the film. We expect all production on The Joneses to be completed by the end of 2013. Then, we'll be focusing on editing in 2014. The rewards you've earned from backing The Joneses are still in order and you'll receive them when the time is right. 

Thanks again for all of your patience and support! We truly appreciate all the help you've given us in our effort to bring this meaningful project to completion. We PROMISE to keep you updated as we continue moving forward.

Thank you!!!!!!!!!! We did it!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thanks to all of your gracious support we were able to reach our fundraising goal.   There was some high tension there for a while, but the important thing is that we did it!!!!  We are so sincerely grateful to all of our donors, and the last minute ones too that put us over the edge.  We couldn't even keep up in writing individual thank yous as in the end we had an impressive 150 backers! 

The documentary is incredibly important to us and we are so happy that we will be able to share the story of this incredibly unique family because of you guys!  All of your blog posts, tweets, 'likes', and e-mails really helped us along the way!!

We'll be in touch over the next few weeks (and months) with updates on the production and also your rewards.  You can always find up to date info on the film on Facebook & Twitter too!

From the bottom of our hearts - thank you, thank you, thank you!
