Production Rocks On!
The production team has expanded and we are hard at work on archives — the bug in the bed that riddles only the luckiest of documentary forms. We’ve gone to libraries, historic collections, newspapers, tv stations, radio stations, authors, musicians, memorabilia collectors, history teachers, even municipal departments. And we’ve only scratched the surface. But the theme that’s smacked us in the pocket again and again is money.
This month, the production was proud to be a finalist in the inaugural Northwest Film Fund which was set up to award one film a year with $10,000. Being on the shortlist was a gratifying boost for us – a validation from film industry colleagues. And while we did not win the cash prize, judges shared their strong support and belief in this film with the production team. With this to buoy us, we are in good stead to cross the finish line. We have an editor on board… the film is almost done… and the show must go on to complete it.
