1 Year Later...

Wow! It's super hard to believe it's been nearly a year since we've updated this blog. Does that mean we are out for the count? Nope, not at all...much has taken place with our project behind the scenes--so much, that we haven't had time to post it all.

For those who have been wondering where we have been, here's a brief recap:

May 2011 marked a pivotal point in this project when our short film "A Little Bit of More" was chosen by the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, as a Court Metrage--Short Film Corner selection.

In August 2011, we saw our little film that could make its way up to the Martha's Vineyard African American Film Festival; another win for the team.

Next, fast forward to November 2011, when one of our good friends--SoSoon--invited us down to his weekly residency at Gizzi's Cafe to screen and discuss the film. Of course, he performed the title track "Zemira" that he penned especially for our project. The awesome guys of Division X were there too. A very wonderful Bronx inspired evening.

Which brings us up to the first quarter of 2012 where we finalized a licensing agreement with ShortsTV--the short film channel. This agreement was another big win for our team as it means that our film will receive international airtime via On Demand outlets such as DirecTV and iTunes! (PS we linked up with ShortsTV through our trip to Cannes!)

Ok, now that we have that out of the way, you're asking what next? Well, you're going to have to check back for our next post in order to get the scoop! LOL! Seriously though, we're nearing the finish line. Thanks for sticking with us this far.
