Here is a teaser for the film.
The title has changed (it is a reference that will come together at the conclusion of the film), as has quite a bit of the original script. This is because we made some interesting realisations.
The entire film will be ready next week (just in time for the submission at the University).
ps. Please do send across your postal addresses so we can get the promised perks across to you! Thanks again for your patience with our updates.
People is sometimes kind
I forgot to mention in my last post, please could you send your postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can send you the promised perks? We should be able to send them out once the film is finished. Thanks again.
We’d like to begin by saying how thankful we are for your contribution. We managed to meet our goal in the time required, and really couldn’t have done it without you. So thank you thank you thank you thank you!
Secondly, we owe you a huge apology for not having updated sooner. We were hoping to update on the road, and didn’t have the internet connectivity we were expecting.
So here’s a long overdue update:
We have finished filming everything, and at this point are logging footage and working on an edit script.
We managed to get most of the footage that we set out to get, so that’s a good thing.
There is some footage we were unable to acquire so at this point efforts have moved towards finding alternative ways to tell the story, and also towards finding some amount of archival material for the same.
Several of our thoughts on the issue changed and grew during the course of our interactions with the birds and the traders, so a lot of the film will include these reflections and that might, at some point, become the crux of the film. It will explain our journey rather than be structured as an activist film.
The edit should begin sometime next week, and once that does we will send out weekly updates and start putting up little clips and sequences for feedback from you.
The film will be ready by July 16th.
Hope all is well with you, and many thanks once again.
Lots of love and best wishes,
