First off, last week we had the screening for the Soul Proprietors 2016 Film Competition, where we won the Grand Prize of $5000 and a giant check! (And apparently a trophy, which in my glee, I accidentally gave to Fleet Feet. Oh well. We still got the giant check.)
Mostly I am writing these posts as a reminder of what I have learned in an effort not to forget. I hope you will get something valuable out of them as well. My brother Ryan had a quote he loved, "A smart man learns for himself but a wise man learns from others." So my friend, be wise and learn from our mistakes and successes!
We are back home in Savannah after shooting for six weeks up in Michigan. We met a host of wonderful, generous, helpful people while we were there and shot a total of 18 interviews and countless hours of b-roll and time lapse video around the area. We have an excellent plan for the story (which evolved and morphed into something more fantastic than we could have even hoped for!) but there is a ton of work to be done before this film will be available for your viewing pleasure. Sit tight and we will let you know as the process progresses!
