We are so thankful and happy to announce that we have successfully concluded our Kickstarter campaign! Our Kickstarter goal was $6000 and we raised $6,282. Kickstarter keeps 5% of your total amount raised, so that actually puts us very close to our goal.
One of the best bonuses of conducting this campaign was the overwhelming love and support we have felt throughout the process. We have always believed that Omer and his team’s stories need to be shared and it’s been very encouraging to see that so many of you agree and believe in what we’re doing.
Throughout the summer we have been working with Drew Denton, a composer completing his MFA in Film Composition at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. We continue to meet with him as he composes pieces that will enhance the film.
We have also brought graphic designer Rachael Dowdy on board to design a poster for The One Who Builds as well as other key artwork we will need for the website and promotional materials. We’re very excited to be working with Rachael. She’s extremely talented and we can’t wait to share her work with you all.
We will soon be making final edits on the film and moving on to sound sweetening and color correction. These processes really polish the film and will be the finishing touches before we move forward with festival submissions and screenings.
Which brings us to some exciting news…
We will be having a very special Work-in-Progress screening of The One Who Builds on October 5, 2012 at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. We are still finalizing the details but please save the date if you live in the area and would like to attend. It will be open to the public and we hope it will be a celebration of the many wonderful people who shared their lives with us through this film and have helped us along the way. Dr. Omer will be in attendance and we hope to have a Q&A session afterward.
Thank you for your continued support!
Peter, Nick & Hillary
