Update #10



Hello Everyone,

We wanted to let you know something really cool and exciting!  We've done some debating, and have decided to premiere the teaser to our barkers on Kickstarter before Cannes!  We just saved you a plane ticket! 

We anticipate having the final sound mix done by this weekend.  That means those that are supporting the film via Kickstarter will see the teaser before anyone else!  How's that for showing the love? 

Au revoir,

Update #7

Cannes Teaser!


We shot the Cannes teaser on Monday, and wanted to share some pics with our backers on Kickstarter.  The teaser will be premiering at Cannes in May.  We are working on getting some big casting news together in time for Cannes.  We'll make sure to list it here, as soon as contracts are signed!

For those techies out there, we shot the teaser on the GH2.  We're planning on shooting the actual film on the Panasonic AF-100. 

This film is really coming together now.  We're still selling a few units in our LLC outside of Kickstarter, for those that want to participate in the upside of the film, and are close to securing several key marketing partners to help get this movie made. 

On top of that, the teaser we shot this week, will help us secure some Pre-Sales at Cannes.  For those that don't know, that's where you sell the rights to the film in certain territories, before the completition of the movie, in order to raise additional money to make the film.  So, long story short, we're doing everything we can to get enough money in the bank to make the best version of this film that we can!
