It’s the week before Christmas, and I thought I’d do a round up of activity at Still Loved before everyone stops working for the holidays.
Things are progressing brilliantly with the edit of Still Loved. I’m enjoying working with our Editor Joby Gee very much. At the moment he is putting together some beautiful scenes and we’re playing around with ideas.
We went to the Molinare Christmas party on Tuesday evening. It was great to see Tom Rogers again, Sales Exec who is overseeing Still Loved and good to talk with him about further ideas for the film. I talked with our Colourist, about the grade and overall look of the film and had a look around their beautiful screening theatre, where we will show a work in progress cut of the film sometime in February.
We have successfully completed another Kickstarter – reaching our target and some extra! This is wonderful and thank you so much to everyone that supported us, this time or in the past. We had some extra help from the lovely Miss Anelia, artist and fashion photographer who creates the most stunning work. Miss Anelia wrote an article about Still Loved in her blog, on the anniversary of the loss of her son Evan. This sent a lot of new sponsors our way, something we very much appreciated. We also had a pledge and several retweets from Elizabeth McCracken, author of one of the best books on baby loss I’ve ever read: An Exact Replica of a Figment of my Imagaination which I’m sure sent many followers our way. We also had some lovely support from the movie Return to Zero and the organisation Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep who helped us promote the film and brought a lot of new backers our way. Big thanks to them all.
Michele Le Tissier, Marketing expert at Paramount Pictures, has offered to give us some key advice on a marketing strategy for Still Loved in the new year, which will be incredibly valuable and we look forward to that.
We are still, as always looking for investment to complete Still Loved. So if you are, or know of, an organisation that can help us, please do get in touch. You can sponsor us any time on our donate page and join our mailing list here.
We’d like to take the opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, hoping that you have a wonderful festive holiday, and a fantastic New year. Thank you so much for all your support and love this year. We’d also like to say a special thank you for amazing support to Christine and Michael Bell.
Debbie and the Still Loved team.
