We have three big, exciting updates to share with you! First, the Best and Most Beautiful Things team is excited to announce that we have officially reached what we in the biz call “picture lock,” meaning the final cut of our film is now complete and (whole-heartedly!) approved. This is a big milestone in the post-production process and we’re very pleased to have finally reached it with your support!
But our work isn’t done. Our next steps include original music, color and sound mix – the final crucial elements that will make our film “sing”! We are on target to complete the film in August, followed by a World Premiere once we are invited to our first film festival. We’ll keep you posted, of course!
Two other fun updates we wanted to share include:
- We recently won the 2015 Works In Progress Award from Independent Film Festival Boston and UMB Film Series. Thank you everyone for the support and good wishes!
- We have been awarded a Spring 2015 Moving Image Fund Grant from the prestigious LEF Foundation, this time to help support our post-production work! We are continually energized by how Michelle's story resonates with so many and are proud to be among the many prestigious projects supported by this organization. Click to learn more.
Also, please note that as we near the finish line, this is the last chance to submit your name to appear in the credits if you donated to our Kickstarter campaign. If you didn’t submit a Kickstarter survey to us following the campaign, and would like a name to appear in the “Thank You” or “In memory of” credits, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and information by July 17.
We continue to work hard every day to raise awareness and funds for the completion, promotion and community outreach around Best and Most Beautiful Things. Tax-deductible donations are always welcome (click to make a donation) to help with the critical next steps that will make-or-break the launch and impact of our film and its powerful messages around self-discovery, empowerment and love.
Thank you, as always, for your passion and your support. We’re almost there!
Garrett and the Best and Most Beautiful team
