Baby Lu Mood Piece

Posted by Emily Ray Reese (Creator)

Dearest Backers!

As we travel down the road to making Baby Lu we have tons of news to share! 

First and most exciting is a mood piece we made in New Mexico to share with potential investors. The piece visually communicate the tone, the world, and the characters of Baby Lu. I want to share this with you all because without your generous support I would not have been able to create it.

We have recently signed on a New Mexican Executive Producer named Kenneth Segura Knolls. He has been working in the film industry in New Mexico for many years and we are thrilled to have him on board! He is currently looking for investors out west. We are also organizing a table read in Albuquerque for potential investors and anyone in the area who would like to attend. I will send out more details as the plans are finalized!

Though making an independent feature film is inevitably a long challenging process with lots of ups and downs, we are committed to sharing this incredibly important story with the world. We will continue to share our passion for Baby Lu and I know in time we will have enough investors to go into production. 

Thank you all for being the the individuals who have given us the ability to start the journey. Thanks to you we have a lawyer who without we would not have our investment paperwork. We have this beautiful piece of film to attract investors and talent, and we have countless artists who are ready to give their all to this production. Again I just can't thank you all enough.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart,
