HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO OUR OPAL SUPPORTERS!!
Our team here just wanted to make sure and wish all of our supporters a great holiday season. We look forward to the new year and all that it will bring. Thank you so much for your support of our film OPAL. Although we were greatly disappointed to not make the cut at Sundance, we are so happy to let you know that OPAL was just accepted into its first festival this week. So at least the film is going somewhere and we will continue to submit the film everywhere we can and create every opportunity for this film to be shown!!
We had a lot of trouble in November/December with our editing unit and our original edits were lost to a hard drive malfunction... one so bad we just had to say goodbye to that drive and move on. We rushed to get the edit back up for Sundance... we got it back up at least - on a new drive and we are still working and tweaking the smallest of details. And we better hurry as we have a festival to get it to... so please have patience with us. We will get it done by the end of January and will get all of your awards out. We have t-shirts ready for those who pledged over $100 and we will get all of the production stills/storyboard art out along with the finished DVD's as soon as we are finished.
If you have not already done so, please fill out our surveys so that we can make sure that we have your correct address and can get everything out to you in the new year.
Thank you again for supporting OPAL and we will keep you posted on any new developments!!!
