Hello Backers and Friends,
Taking time during my lunch break at work to let you all know the good news. It will go out on the social media shortly, but you've heard it first...
G.P.S. IS DONE.
And it is now submitted to the Napa Valley Film Festival.
This couldn't have happened with all your generous support. Thank you again.
Now that we have submitted to a festival, an IMDb page for G.P.S. will surface soon. We will be submitting to other fests, but it is our true hope that it will premiere at the Napa Valley Film Festival for several reasons, the obvious one being that we shot the film in Napa, but also because the Napa Valley Film Festival is a very exciting event. I believe it will be the next Sundance in the near future and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in that. And, besides, who doesn't love the wine country? We will know around September if they select the film.
In the meantime, it is not a bad idea to tentatively plan a trip to Napa around the time of the festival (November 13-17, 2013) just in case. :)
The work isn't completely done. We got to keep submitting to fests and nurturing G.P.S.'s presence in the social media sphere. But the film is done. It's gorgeous. And you all helped make it happen.
Now spread the word and make sure people see the trailer, like the facebook page, follow on Twitter so the fests see that we mean business!
All of that can be found at www.gpsshort.com.
For those of you who made the the pledge amounts on Kickstarter that entitle you to receive copies of the film, you will be hearing from us about that later this summer.
Enjoy some more stills from the film in the meantime!
In other news, I'm happy to also announce that the feature film "Road to Capri" (written by G.P.S. producer Blake Armstrong and our assistant director Giovanni Labadessa) is on the verge of going into production. AND the short "Meat in Potatoes" from our director of photography Michael Kofsky and gaffer Andria Chamberlain starts shooting in a week! Check out these links for more info:
