The Progress We've Made

Hello all!

It's been far too long since my last update – so hey, what have I been doing?

Since funding has completed, I've upgraded all my recording gear considerably, allowing for higher quality video, lighting, and sound. Huzzah! Here, in fact, is a shoot in progress in Austin, TX last month with Christopher Schmitt.

 I've managed to do some great interviews in the last few months with the likes of Karen McGrane, Jeremy Keith, Jared Spool, Jessica Ivins, John Allsopp, Jay Fanelli, Nathan Peretic, Trent Walton, Dave Rupert, Glenda Sims, and Kevin Sharon.

I'm now working with David Newberry, a great documentary editor / web developer (not a bad combination for our little project, eh?) here in Pittsburgh, and we're currently hunkered down structuring the existing footage and making plans for the rest of the film. Once we have the current stuff roughed out, we'll be able to better see where the holes in our story are, so I can head back out for a second round of interviews to fill the gaps in the new year.

For those of you who ordered, we're still working on t-shirt designs, but have no fear – we haven't forgotten.

Thanks again for your support – we are on our way to a movie!
