It's been some time since we've posted to the blog, but that's only because we've been ultra-busy since last month's fundraiser.
We've garnered a bunch of support since the fundraiser which helped open the eyes of a lot of our supporters to the precise vision for ZEMIRA. Truth be told, we haven't even followed up on all of our leads since then, but things are moving along quite swimmingly. Things aren't perfect yet, there's been some roadblocks here and there, but the film is coming into alignment...we just have to maintain our momentum and keep it flowing.
Our aim is to start casting real soon. There are some great actors we worked with last year during a script reading that was organized through ActNow Foundation, so we have to get back in touch with them as well as find others to audition for the film. I saw one of them perform this past weekend, and he's gotten even more amazing with his talent. There's so much fantastic talent out there and we're looking forward to meeting and hopefully working with them. Undoubtedly, the hardest part to cast will be our lead, Zemira. But hopefully we'll get some help on that front (crossing our fingers for good luck, more on that to come if it manifests postively).
Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you don't hear from us because we still need all your support and well wishes (And financial contributions.... putting together a film ain't cheap!).
Thanks for reading. Speak to you all again soon!
