Funded!

After 30 anxiety filled days: Mother of Us All has been completely funded through Kickstarter! It has been an incredible blessing to see family members, friends, and strangers band together to support my vision. Even the poorest of college students alike to me gave up their remaining dollars to show their support. I could not feel more gracious and indebted to those individuals. This only fuels my desire to make this project of the highest quality!

But where do I go from here?

My script is in its final stages after a dramatic and emotional rewrite and will be finalized by the end of this week. This evening I am hosting a reading of the current draft (reaching 34 pages) with a group of actors. This will allow me to hear my dialogue in a different context so that I can make the necessary changes. This is my favorite piece of the entire filmmaking puzzle: hearing my words in the minds and through the mouths of others.

My crew is slowly but surely coming together: I have an incredibly talented Director of Photography who has accompanied me on previous projects (Peter Guth), a hard-working producer (Ashley Herubin), a color specialist (Joni Van Bockel), a production designer (Jay Carlson), two costume consultants (Liz Yoder and Katelin McRaith), and a man we call Kentworth (Kent Svenson) who is our “everything man.” Production aspects like props, costumes, locations, etc. are already being organized by my producer and I.

Every step from here on out will force us to continue to work diligently to bring this script to life! We’re in for a tumultuous wave of events nearly similar to the “year that rocked the world,” 1968. “The score to beat is 7.9. Keep your head in the game, that Japanese judge is very tough. ” (Brothers Bloom)
