About a Donkey Rough Cut! (Seed&Spark Update)

We're so excited to announce that we have a full rough cut of the film! After months of creative cutting and decision making, we have a fine cut with a runtime of 87 minutes (without credits). We're planning to screen it for some of our crew this Thursday night to get fresh feedback before diving into the sound mix, color and other finishing touches. Our goal is to have it ready for festival submissions by the end of September! 

(Me and our editor, Matt Gershowitz, finalizing the cut this past Saturday.)

In other news, we've been applying for grants and brainstorming on ways we could cover the costs of post-production, submissions, and eventually, deliverables. Our post crew is working deferred at the moment, but we're dead set on paying everyone something. Crowdfunding again may be the best bet down the line, but for now we're exploring other options and hope that the film and our mission will resonate with others the way it has with all of you. 

Stay tuned for more updates soon!

Two Minute “About a Donkey” Preview (Seed&Spark Update)

Good morning wonderful supporters!

We've made it to 20%! And in under 48 hours! We're aiming for 30% before midnight tonight. Hopefully releasing this two minute preview of the opening scene of the film will help us reach more people. Watch below. Hope you enjoy it! It's two minutes of a nine minute scene that we shot in preparation for this campaign. Please note that this is a rough sound mix and color. We won't have the real post-production work done until after we shoot the rest of the film, which we can't do without making our goal!

Spread it far and wide. Here's a sample tweet or post:

We put out a new batch of donkey thank yous on our Facebook page. More coming soon!
