Hey Greg, thanks for checking in and apologies for no updates of late. The project is progressing and I'm happy to report that we're currently working to fine tune the 3rd cut of the film. Over the past few months we've been hosting test screenings of the film with our fiscal sponsor, Austin Film Society, and locally in Houston with Rice Media Center. I'm pleased to report that the most recent feedback was not only helpful, but mostly positive. All of this is helping is determine how close we are to picture lock. We have another test screening scheduled with Austin Film Society in mid-May after which we'll have greater clarity on how close we are to finalizing the edit. That said, we'll be working through the summer to find financial support to fund licensing of the myriad archival videos/photos, music, color grading, and final audio mix. Thanks for your support, patience, and continued interest as we move closer to the finish line!
The last update we got was in September of 2016 saying that all filming was complete by Spring/Summer of 2016 and that this was going to be shipped out in 2017. The original completion date given was Spring of 2016 and it is now spring of 2018, two years past that date with no updates since September of 2016...
Has this project been cancelled?
Thank you for the update! I completely understand production takes time and you want to do it right. The transparency on your progress is very much appreciated. I look forward to getting the blu-ray and watching it.
Hey Greg, thanks very much for checking in regarding the status of production. Sorry for the delays with updates, we've had our heads down in the edit for the past couple of months. The production portion of the film was indeed completed on schedule in Spring/Summer 2016. I'm happy to say that the generous support of our backers allowed us to complete interviews and capture footage for a total of 32 days. Amazing! Since that time we've moved into post-production on the film. It's been slow, methodical work as there's a tremendous amount of story to cover and we're building lots of archival/graphic elements to punctuate the story. The past few months have been filled with archival research, digging through archives, revamping our treatment, and digging into the edit. I'm happy to say we're about half way there and are working to have a rough cut complete this year. Thanks for your support and stay tuned for more updates!
Is there any update on production status? I believe the KS originally stated a goal completion date of spring 2016. Film production often runs behind schedule for understandable reasons, but an update on the status would be appreciated for the people who pledged.
Love this pitch video. Can't wait for the film!
