We now have two cool posters! These are the ones I will be sending out as perks! My friend and talented graphic artist Melissa Garza-Allen has created these cool posters. She has also helped make the website look more professional.
Still working on getting a screening scheduled and I will let you guys know when I have a date.
Inevitably things have not gone exactly to plan and for that I apologize profusely. I had hoped to send out backer DVDs and posters by now but unfortunately I did not budget well for this, essentially using every cent from the crowdfunding campaign and then some from personal expenses to get the film finished. It has been a hard fought battle to get the film complete. Suffice to say the production company I partnered with is happy to just wait until the film is distributed to offer DVDs, t-shirts and posters but I'm trying to do that sooner. I have been submitting the film to multiple film festivals really trying to carefully weigh the options on which ones to submit to instead of every festival. Unfortunately one festival I had hoped would be the world premiere was the Austin Film Festival and Mahogany Sunrise was not accepted. There is one other festival for 2013 I hope to hear back from soon but most of the others are not until 2014.
All in all I am pretty happy with how the film turned out. Sure there are things I would have changed and done differently but I feel fortunate to have been able to create what we did on our limited budget. The music soundtrack is pretty cool and the performances and images are great. I really hope you enjoy the film and find it moving and entertaining.
For those of you in Texas, I am hoping to have a premiere first in San Antonio and then one in Houston. I'm still coordinating and trying to find the funds to put this together. I will definitely keep everyone posted.

Hello dear backers!
It has been a longer then expected post production process. We're doing some finishing touches on the film. The Mahogany Sunrise soundtrack is coming together with some great local music! Check out and be sure to follow these great artists: Nano Whitman, The Sour Notes, Leatherbag, She Sir, Wil Cope, Patricia Vonne and Danielle Reich! It's an eclectic mix of Folk/Pop, indie rock, jazz, shoegaze, Mexican tinged rock and French pop.
We are still in the planning stages for a premiere and will let everyone know when we have everything scheduled. The premiere will be in San Antonio but we're also looking to have one in Houston. We have been submitting the film to various film festivals and are awaiting news back from them.
A poster is in the works as well as t-shirts. Please bare with us we work to get the perks squared away. A trailer will soon be released so stay tuned for that!
