Greetings Kickstarter teammates,
We are very excited to share the latest news on our film! With the evolution of Michelle’s story, the teachings of Helen Keller are never far from our hearts. In fact, the famous quote from Helen Keller, the one that first inspired Garrett to make this film, and that hangs prominently on the wall in Michelle’s mother’s home, has become a sort of mantra for our team: "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart."
After much soul-searching and deliberation, we decided to change the title of the film from"Three Days To See" to "Best and Most Beautiful Things." Even though it's hard to wrap our minds around a new title, we feel this positive and poignant phrase expresses the film's true message about beauty and what matters most in life: love. We hope you like it as much as we do!
In addition, we are proud to announce we have been selected to participate in the Independent Film Festival Boston / University of Massachusetts Boston's Film Summit on Thursday, April 23. We are invited to present a short clip of the film as part of the Massachusetts Works-in-Progress program. The event is moderated by Boston Globe Film Critic, Peter Keough and draws an audience of filmgoers, potential funders, broadcasters, festival programmers, brand partners and industry insiders, with the goal of creating a unique coalition of awareness and support for local filmmakers. We’re thrilled!
Our editors, Jeff Consiglio and Sarah Ginsburg, have been very hard at work finishing the film, which should be ready to premiere in the fall 2015 or winter 2016. The finish line is in sight!
As always we are grateful for your support and patience. More news to come soon!
Team “Best and Most Beautiful Things"
