After a great screening in Madison, Wisconsin I came home to Vermont, made a few tweaks to the movie and am happy to announce the screening of Wisconsin Rising in Burlington, VT!!!
This Sunday, October 20th at 4pm at the Film House located at 60 Lake Street. This screening is part of the Vermont Filmmakers Showcase at the Vermont International Film Festival.
If you are near the Burlington area, join us!
There are not future screenings scheduled at the moment - I am learning the world of film distribution and am submitting to film festivals. If any of you trustee backers know about film distribution or have film distributor friends, I would be happy to hear from you!!
I will keep you posted as soon as there is news to report on future screenings !!

Dear Wisconsin Rising backers,
I am so happy to write that the film is locked! The very last steps will happen this week when the movie goes off to the sound mixer and color corrector! The editing of the film is finished!!!
Please like us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/WisconsinRising and check out our website at http://wisconsinrising.com I will update screening times, dates and locations as they become public.
Please stay tuned for screening dates in your area! Wisconsin and Vermont screenings will happen in October!
Looking forward to sharing this story with you all! Thank you for helping make it happen!
With love and solidarity,
Wisconsin Rising had a great work in progress screening at the Reel Work Film Festival in Santa Cruz, California on Sunday!
The film was well received by the audience and I am happy to say that I am already incorporating some of the edits into the latest draft of the film!
Wisconsin Rising has a website! We have the trailer posted as well as a few photos. Check it out!
Wisconsin Rising is on the home stretch! I need to secure the very last bit of finishing funds to get it screen ready - as soon as I secure funding I will start scheduling screenings in Wisconsin and beyond.
If anyone is in a position to help on that front, or, if you know people who can help, here is a link to make it easy. I am working with producers and am hopeful it will come together very soon!
Jeffrey Smedberg of the Reel Work Film Festival organized an interview at the Community Television station of Santa Cruz County in California and, as always, the community media folks were awesome! We had a great time! Attached is a photo from their studio.
Next stop for Wisconsin Rising - Plug in final finshing touches for editing. Make a few more full screen graphics. Finalize music. Correct color. Mix sound. Set up screenings to share with all of you nice people!
Getting really excited to share this with you!
With love and gratitude,
Wisconsin Rising Trailer
