Let’s take a look back at the behind-the-scenes activities of TRIUMPH67 here at the close of 2010. The busy nights and weekends of work haven’t been visible to anyone except close (and very supportive) family members, so here’s a recap:
Dan and Jeremy spent a LOT of time editing the film through the spring and early summer in Jeremy’s edit suite to get the film ready for music, sound mixing and color grading by fall so we could start the film festival submission process. The final 3-4 weeks before our first deadline were stressful, to say the least, with a few difficult hurdles and just not quite enough time, but we did make the deadline for the first big festivals!
In the fall we had a very successful fundraising campaign on kickstarter.com and we look forward to producing the final finished film on Blu-Ray/DVD so that we can really begin to properly thank you, our contributors, with your promised credits, discs, books, posters, and parties! We’ve spent a small portion of the funds already on some of the last color work and sound mix.
We had a fun and amazing experience showing our work-in-progress at the Flyway Film Festival in Pepin, Wisconsin, and truly enjoyed seeing our friends, family, and collaborators. It was deeply rewarding, even at that stage, to hear the feedback and comments to our indie creation.
So what is coming in 2011?
We have been applying to an array of film festivals around the world, and we are eager to announce our first public screenings. Don’t worry, you’ll be the first to know when these screenings will take place.
We are cautiously hopeful that we will have our local premiere (and party!) in the Twin Cities sometime this coming spring. Get those ball gowns and tuxedos ready!
Ultimately we plan on making our film available on DVD, Blu-Ray and VOD, which will likely happen before year-end 2011. Whew. Who knew this stuff took so long?!
We’re going to have a fun and eventful year! Cheers to you and all the best in 2011.
