The Shattered Mind - A Short Film
I know it has been a long while since you last heard from me. I have been so busy touring with the film. I have not forgotten about you. You guys have been on my mind constantly.
The Shattered Mind has been selected by 29 film festivals. Our last one was in Buffalo. We won 10 awards and received 2 noms. We're still touring, just not as much. It will start to slow down this summer.
We will be releasing the film in June or July. I will be hitting up each of you about your perks soon. Also depending on which perks you have selected; whether digital or DVD, t-shirts, or posters, I will check to see if you have already include your shipping and handling fee.
Please feel free to ask me any question. Again, I apologize for the delay and for not communicating with you as much as I could.
I know it has been a while since my last update. I have some good news!
I'm pleased to announce that my film, The Shattered Mind has been selected to screen at the 2015 Manhattan Film Festival here in NY. The Shattered Mind will screen on Sunday, June 14th at 5PM at the Players Theater. More information about the movie here: http://www.independentfeatures.com/view-screening/724
My team and I are also elated that The Shattered Mind is also an official selection of the 2015 Jamaica Film Festival, which will take place from July 7-11 next month. Jamaica is my birthplace. We plan to be there for that also.
Also, I turn 50 in September and I couldn't be more happier to celebrate the success of my film career and my life on the island two months earlier. Life started there. Creation started there. Having my film screen at the 2015 Jamaica Film Festival is special, personal and dear to me. Since the festival tour is ongoing, I have an early birthday wish requesting donations toward my Gofundme campaign to celebrate the success and milestone of my film, The Shattered Mind. My goal is to raise approximately $5,000 to cover airfare/hotel costs for my key cast to attend the 2015 Jamaica Film Festival. Your support would be appreciated. Please share the news. This festival tour is ongoing throughout the year. Please follow us from our Facebook page, it's the only way you will keep track of our process.
Here’s the link to the Gofundme.com campaign: http://www.gofundme.com/festivaltours
Your donation is tax-deductible. Thank you in advance for the support. Don't forget to share the link!
Note: Because we're touring the festivals, your rewards (DVD, posters, tshirts, etc) will have to wait until the festival is over after January 2016. It has a lot to do with the film festival policies about my movie publicly displayed online, selling or distributing them before the festival premieres. I cannot take that chance should my movie fall into the wrong hands. Unfortunately, I have rules and regulations to follow. That's the nature of the film business. I apologize for the delay. If you have any question, please reach out to me at jade firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
Sorry it's been so long since the last update, but since my last post, I have been super busy with the premiere of my full version movie. It was very successful! It was a full house and the results were very positive. I took two weeks off to do nothing. I was physically and mentally exhausted.
When I submitted a work-in-progress of my short film to Sundance on September 15th, all my crew had to abandon the short in order to work on the full movie so we could complete it in time for the October 24th screening. We recently picked it up to so we could work on it. I faced some technical issues with my computer, which caused some delays in the process. I spent a couple days tweaking and fixing full version. We now have both the short version (48 minutes) is for the film festival circuit. The full version (86 minutes) is for film showcases and tour in the deaf community, fundraisers & co-partnership with organizations, private screenings, etc.
I am sorry the REWARDS have still NOT been fulfilled, but we are waiting to get all the actor's signatures for the movie poster and the T-shirts are also in the works
- So PLEASE hang-tight. You will get them soon.
The DVD will not be available until later. I will let you know when it is ready for release. If your perk included HD download viewing of the movie, we will honor it so that you do not have to wait for the DVD. You will get a chance to view the short movie at a limited time using a password access through Youtube or Vimeo.
If you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you.
