Approaching culmination.

Hello friends and family,

As I am nearing completion of a screener cut of Betta, I thought I would drop you a line about the upcoming screening of the film. On Wednesday, December 14th at the Hollywood Theatre in Portland, OR, Betta will be shown as part of the Art Institute senior screening. 

Also this month, our lead actor Dylan Earhart will be reprising his role as "Flick" in the Portland Center Stage production of A Christmas Story. For more info and tickets please visit:

As Dylan will be performing the same night as the Hollywood screening, he and his family will be unable to attend. So, I am planning to hold an official premiere in the Portland area after the new year. 

Also after the new year, I will be preparing to send out the backer rewards and will contact you for mailing information. 

In the meantime, here is my design for the movie poster.

Thank you for your patience and support! 

Rob

That's a wrap!

After two long and stressful days, we have completed principal photography for Betta!  The footage looks beautiful and I can't wait to start digging into the edit. 

Stay tuned for BTS pictures and video as I receive them!
