Three Days to See Important Updates

8 likes

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!

Warmly,
Team “Best and Most Beautiful Things"

Dear friends,

With the holiday season upon us, we reflect on all that has happened over the past year. And what a year it has been! We expanded our team of talented individuals, won a prestigious grant, wrapped filming, met with interested broadcasters and festival programmers, and are deep into the final editing phase. We're still working hard every day to finish and release the film and are on schedule to complete our cut by the spring.

As a special reward for your patience and early support, we’d love to give you an exclusive and private sneak peek of one of our brand new scenes. Just click the link or image below (or copy and paste the link into your web browser), enter the password provided and hit return or click on the “Access” button to view.

The Home Stretch: Three Days to See Update

6 likes

Dear friends,

We’re editing the film! It’s an exciting time for us. After following some new twists in Michelle’s life, we have officially wrapped filming and have since taken a deep dive into our rough-cut edit. With so much rich footage to stitch together, it will take time to craft the strongest story, but we hope you’ll appreciate the end result. For us, seeing Michelle take key steps toward independence and finding her own voice has been worth the wait!

In addition, our team was recently accepted to and participated in Independent Film Week in New York City. This esteemed industry event helps advance new projects and nurture the work of both emerging and established independent filmmakers. In five jam-packed days, we made connections with top industry executives, from HBO to Sundance. Garrett wrote a blog post about the experience for the LEF Foundation, who provided us with a production grant, which you can read here.

Our goal now is to finish the film in early 2015, and of course we’ll let you know as soon as we have more news. We are eternally grateful to all of our backers and supporters throughout this ever-evolving process, and can’t stress enough that none of this would have been possible without your belief in our story.

All our best,
The THREE DAYS TO SEE team

Hello friends,

We want to share some fantastic news! We are incredibly honored and thrilled to announce that THREE DAYS TO SEE received the very competitive 2014 Moving Image Fund production grant from the prestigious LEF Foundation! The LEF Foundation “champions work that is provocative, heartfelt, and challenging in style and substance.”

Check out the official grant announcement here, along with some of the other amazing films we are honored to keep company with: LEF MOVING IMAGE FUND GRANT ANNOUNCEMENT.

In addition, our THREE DAYS TO SEE Fundraiser event at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge Tuesday night was fantastic! Thank you to every one who attended donated and/or made a contribution or gave us a hug. You helped make the night one we will never forget! A very special thank you to Sarah Mabry of the Charles Hotel who was instrumental in making this event such a tremendous success – we are so grateful!

The joint was bubbling over with love and goodwill and everyone was smitten with Michelle as she sang two beautiful songs and a well-known Disney encore in which many joined in for the chorus!  Check out the photos below.

This vital support means the world to us, and we celebrate with the amazing encouragement and help of all the film’s friends and fans! Onward!

Warm regards, Garrett and the THREE DAYS TO SEE team
