Are we there yet?

If we imagine the film making process as a family road trip- we are at that point in the trip where the kids in the back seat are pushing their feet into the back of their parents chairs- and constantly asking, “Are we there yet?”

Folks, after nearly 5 years in the making, the next few months till completion seem to stretch on before us ad-infinitum. There seem to be a an inordinate amount of tiny, precise processes that must be carried out in a specific order, lest we stall. Final cuts, graphics, color correction, music, sound mixing… the list goes on. I swear, one doesn’t realize, but for every credit on a film, there are a hundred phone calls, a thousand emails, and hours of racking ones brain.

So, for all of you fans-to-be who have emailed in the last month with questions like “when will it be done?” and “how close is it?”… We’ll give you a lolipop if you just chill for a bit, and take your feet of the back of our chairs- we’re almost there.
