Dear Friends, Family and Fans,
WE ARE SO CLOSE!
The film has been picture locked and we are racing to get the film in festival shape as deadlines approach. We could not have gotten this far without the wonderful support so many have shown us, so THANK YOU!!! That said, while we are indeed close to the finish line, we haven't crossed it yet. Your investment will help us pay for the next phase of post production - sound mixing & color timing - and we only have 30 days in which to finish the film!
Making Hurricane over the past year has been a labor of love for all involved, from the filmmakers to the cast and crew to the wonderful inhabitants of St. Marys, GA where the film was shot. Every aspect has been a testament to spirit of independent filmmaking, and it’s only fitting that we finish the film in the same fashion.
EYE OF THE HURRICANE stars Campbell Scott (currently shooting the "Spider Man" reboot, "Music & Lyrics", "The Exorcism of Emily Rose"), Melanie Lynskey ("Up in the Air", "The Informant", "Two and a Half Men"), Nicola Peltz ("The Last Airbender") and Jose Zuniga ("Twilight", "Mission Impossible III").
Please take a moment to watch our trailer on Kickstarter, on our website at www.eyeofthehurricanemovie.com or on the Braveart Films site at www.braveartfilms.com. You can also join us on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Eye-of-the-Hurricane/125639677449907.
We sincerely believe that EYE OF THE HURRICANE is a film that will truly touch audiences, and one in which you will be proud to have supported early. Here's your chance to help us make THE KIND OF MOVIES YOU WANT TO SEE!
We hope you will join us, and help us spread the word! Any mentions in your blogs, Facebook, Twitter or websites would be greatly appreciated!!!
With thanks and kindest regards,
Jesse Wolfe & Susan Johnson Writer/Director Producer
