In celebration of the Supreme Court decision on Marriage Equality yesterday, here's an excerpt from Liberty's wedding, the last scene in the movie. (I figured you already knew how the movie ends.) If you would like to see the entire wedding scene, please join our mailing list on the home page, and we will send you a link. Enjoy.
After several months of editing, I have finished a rough cut of the entire film. It clocks in at 1hr and 38 minutes. Just about the perfect length once I trim a few things, and put in a montage or two. Next steps are to record the rest of the music, finalize the edit, and begin work on editing the sound and tweaking the color. Hoping to have the film ready for submission to film festivals by September.
There were two wonderful stories about the movie this week. Fellow Michigander (by coincidence), Dana Piccoli, wrote a great story for afterellen.com, focussing on the ways that the film connects to the present political situation here Michigan -- particularly as it relates to LGBT and women's rights.
And Melanie Barker wrote a really nice piece in Curve magazine, encouraging people to help out with our Indiegogo fundraising campaign. Here is that link:
Here's a new video featuring our friends Pattie and Jeanne, a couple who have been together for 27 years! They describe what it meant to them to participate in the filming the big #LibertysSecret wedding scene last summer.
After 21 days of shooting, Liberty's Secret has finished principle photography. The shoot was a lot of fun, and the footage looks great. Now I head into the editing room to begin putting it all together.
