A short of Night Thing, and project progress!

Season's greetings to you, Night Thing backers!

As the end of the year approaches, I'm so happy to share the following with you: 

  • We've got over 13 hrs committed to film and are 3/4 of the way done with shooting our full-length film. We are on track for our February 2013 shooting completion date, and our film's premier is now scheduled for 4/5/13!
  • We have shot in 4 out of 5 of NYC's boroughs, at places like Rockaway Beach in Queens, Central Park, the Greenbelt Native Plant Center on Staten Island, a rooftop in SoHo...and you can see photos of the filming in progress right here on our facebook page
  • We are still in the running for a (small yet rad) NYSCA grant for electronic media & film!
  • The short you see below, put together with early NT footage, was among the finalists for the prestigious Dance On Camera festival, and though not selected, we are totally honored that our first effort has been recognized. The short will be screened at film festivals in San Francisco and Italy (and hopefully more!) in 2013. 

My continued thanks to you as we work towards completing this project and delivering your rewards. Wishing you a safe & happy holiday, and a wonderful new year-

Night Thing's First Scheduled Group Shoot: June 24!

I'm excited to report that we're working with Kismet Beach on Fire Island to complete our first shoot for Night Thing on June 24. The whole cast will be there, and they'll be getting all sandy, contemporary dance style. We'll be creating a video log of our behind-the-scenes adventures throughout the filming process, so stay tuned for our very first entry! 

PS OUR NEW CAMERA KICKS ASS! 

Thanks again for making this possible, Kickstarter backers!

xo,

You got your Night Thang On!

Dear Night Thing Backers, 

WE DID IT! More accurately, you did it! I'm doing the happiest of dances. Thank you for supporting my project, my company, and dance film in general. This is going to be spectacular! I couldn't be more excited to share the results with all of you. 

With love & gratitude, 

Marisa + wrDM
