We are proud to announce that our Q&A with the Academy of Motion Pictures in NY is the VIDEO OF THE DAY on the Oscars homepage - www.oscars.org.

Please take a moment to check it out, as we can not guarantee how long it will stay on the homepage. 

Thank you for getting us HERE! We look forward to staying in touch as we continue to share FINDING HILLYWOOD with the rest of the world!

In addition, here is a video Todd Soliday created from our night with Oscar 2 weeks ago in the Big Apple. Thank you to Ni'coel Stark and Ellen Harrington for making all of our dreams come true!

Lots of love,

Leah | leah@inflatablefilm.com

Update #16

Rough Cut and "Reel Change" Workshops - Thanks to YOU!

Comment

Hello trusty FFR supporters!

It has been a few months since our Kickstarter campaign ended and we are still amazed and grateful for your support!  We are proud to report that we're moving along on our rough cut - thanks to YOU - and hope to have a content cut ready for review by the end of October. Very exciting news!  We have been very busy with music licenses, composers, and post production - and Ayuub even filmed a little bit of new footage at Hillywood 2011!  We also have a designer and writer on-board who are working full speed ahead.

In addition, I will be in San Francisco next week to participate in the Reel Change workshops hosted by Working Films and The Fledgling Fund.  Only 25 filmmakers were selected and I will be presenting our film and learning how to manage effective social issue and social change campaigns.  I'm thrilled for the opportunity, and thankful for the energy during our  Kickstarter campaign that pushed us in this direction - Thank you!  

Again, we would not be where we are today without your generosity and confidence - so thank you from our hearts.

We will be sure to post updates on our Facebook page so please stay tuned!

Warmly,

Leah
