The homestretch!!

Dear Friends,

I hope this note finds you all very well.  Since our last update, we’ve continued to work on our film, IN THE MORNING.  We are entering the final stretch of post-production.   As we get closer to locking picture, we are gearing up for a final round of fundraising to cover those pricey but necessary finishing touches like sound design/mix, color timing, and score. Making an independent film with limited resources is a marathon, not a sprint.  It’s been an extraordinary journey with many hard-won victories.  Thank you for staying with us, and cheering us on along the way.   Your words of encouragement keep us going.  We can’t wait to share our film with all of you.  We’ll see you at the finished line!!  In the meantime, to keep up with our progress, don’t forget to ‘like’ us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter and Tumblr for updates and new photos.

Here is another image from IN THE MORNING that I’d like to share with you.  It’s the introduction to our circle of friends.  In this scene, old friends Bly, Ravi, Amara and Fez chat about love, life and gentrification over brunch.  Our cast: JoNell Kennedy, Hoji Fortuna, Numa Perrier and Alzo Slade had wonderful chemistry, and larger than life personalities.  Shooting these group scenes was always a blast!  This scene was filmed on our very first shoot day.  A day I’ll never forget.  I look forward to sharing more with you as we get closer to completing this film, our film: IN THE MORNING.

Again, we thank you.

With love, light and unyielding gratitude,
