Progress! Documentary to be Titled “After the Factory”
The quick update on the film: We’re almost at picture lock (being done with the film), we’re looking at premiere venues and we’ve settled on a title.
In terms of editing, we’re nearing the final stages, just swapping out shots here and there and making little tweaks to get the piece finalized. We’ve arranged for coloring through our friends over at Ringside Creative, which we are really excited about. After that’s done, we’ll do the final sound mix and then this thing is ready for the big screen. It’s kind of crazy, January 6th will be the one year mark when this project first came to mind– the day I got an email from a guy named Michal in Lodz, talking about his city was just like Detroit. He would become our producer in Lodz. Now, just shy of one year later, the film is shot and we are nearing the final cut stage. That’s something to be proud of.
We’ve settled on a title– “After the Factory.” Simple, straightforward and indicative of what the film is trying to wrap its arms around. What next? What can we do? What can two cities in the same position learn from one another?
We are hoping to announce a premiere soon. “After the Factory” will play first in Detroit and Lodz, that’s for sure. We will then be taking it on a screening tour, all of which is currently in the works. We’re really pumped though, as a lot of groups on both continents are interested in helping us get the film out there. All the while, we will be sending it off to film festivals. So, lots of good stuff ahead.
Once again, a hearty thanks to readers who were a part of our Kickstarter campaign to fund the project. None of this would be happening without you. When you are sitting at the premiere watching it, I hope that if even for just a few seconds you can kind of feel like this film is your own.
