Wow, it's been a while since we've updated this--apologies. Here's the real behind-the-scenes, lol...we ran out of money (and a slight amount of motivational-steam).
But here's a little of what we've been up to!
In June, we were able to be shown at the Rave Theater in Chattanooga, TN for Open Screen Night. Viewers cast their votes, and the top tier would go on to be shown at the Best of Open Screen Night in December. We just got an email this morning that ordered the top films by percent of votes on the night they were screened and Blue was 1st!
By category, Blue got the most votes on the night it played in the following:
and got 2nd for the Actors category :)
The Best of Open Screen Night will take place @ the
Majestic Theater in Downtown Chattanooga
Monday, December 10 from 7 PM - 11 PM
In July, we were graciously asked to take part in the Firehouse Film Festival in Dalton Georgia. It was Whit Davie's hometown, and we were honored to be part of it. It was held in July and we walked away with five awards:
-Best Set design
-Best Sound & Score
-Best Lead Actress (Julenne)
-Judges Best Film Award
From there, the winners were shown at the festival in Rome, Georgia :)
We're very thankful to God for the success that Blue has had--with no clue where it's headed still, or what doors it will open up, we're nonetheless excited to see what's ahead.
With a little change in our pockets, we're picking up the DVD dream again--to have a finished product to be able to hand to people (at the very least to our awesome cast and crew, and potential employers), that's what we're aiming for.
So with that, I've been working on audio commentary that we recorded with Julenne earlier this year, as well as Spanish subtitles by the request of a viewer in Mexico. There will possibly be more behind-the-scenes footage and a featurette on Julenne's journey as an actress.
Still lots to be done! Bear with us ;-)
