It has been a wonderful week finally sharing IN THE MORNING with you, our amazing kickstarter supporters! To read your heartfelt comments and see the pictures from the many ITM - The Experience home screening parties continues to gratify and spur us on in this journey to bring our film to wider audiences!
For those of you who have not yet viewed the film, you still have time! The link in the email from that you were sent is still available for you to use - the expiration countdown only begins after you click the START WATCHING button in the email. If you still need time to view the film or didn't see the email, just send us a message and we'll fix you up.
As you know IN THE MORNING was made completely independently out of the desire to explore intimacy and vulnerability as it relates to Black life. As the question of inclusion and representation reaches a fever pitch on this Oscar Sunday, we are gathering a few like-minded individuals online tomorrow, Monday February 29th 7:00pm EST to download and discuss #LovingWhileBlack on web video platform Blab. We will get into all things Black Film, Black Love and Black image-making in the face of #Oscarssowhite.
We're calling this conversation "The Morning After" I'll be on deck with a few of our cast members. This conversation will be hosted by media maven, Amy DuBois Barnett alongside digital strategist, James Andrews. I would love it if you could join us and add your voice/perspective to the mix.
