This project was successfully funded on May 12, 2012.
So we've been quiet, but only for good good good reasons and of course thanks to all your wonderful contributions.
We've embarked on our trip down to Cape Town and have been working away like extremely busy bees at dizzying speeds. A few flights, timezones and baggage check in's later we can safely say WALLS OF LEILA is HAPPENING.
It's all wintery down here, we're sippin on lots of cocoa/peppermint tea (yes we're ladies like that) and Amirah is putting pen to paper and charging along rather well with the script. The first draft shall be a reality soon. The characters are becoming real-er by the day, the sounds of the city are juxtaposing themselves within the pages and the community out here has been extremely supportive.
We're discovering new secrets about this incredibly beautiful city everyday and hopefully will do them justice in translating or even just channeling them via the film. It's a rich history to say the least.
We'll be checking in again soon! Enjoy the photo of Table Mountain - view we wake up to every morning and then feel so very humbled and blessed all at once.
Love and Hugs
