No, this is NOT an April Fools joke. It is a legitimate update. 😉 It’s been a few months since we’ve updated you on our progress, but we want you to know that, though we’ve been quiet, we’ve been ‘nose to the grindstone.’ The film was recently ‘picture-locked’ –a significant milestone, but some of our other vendors/partners serving the project have had to push their production dates out a little bit. This is NOT unusual in the film production process, even for movies with gigantic budgets. Big or small, a project is worth doing right, and we’re making sure to not cut corners on Aria Appleton. So please bear with us as we ask you to wait just a little bit longer. The final product is going to be outstanding and, though we, the production team, are also pensively awaiting a finished product, we are delaying gratification till the big day when Aria is finally ready for the world. Join with us.
We have a few more VFX elements to incorporate in our product, and post sound and composition are about to begin. We expect to be finished this Summer 2016 and ready for market.
Though our project was ambitious, we became and embraced the cliche choosing boldly to work with kids AND, yes, even animals. To push us over the top and make our challenge even greater, we added LOTS of original music. Though the wait will have been long, it will certainly be worth it, and we wouldn’t have had it any other way. We have had a blast. We are in discussions with festivals, marketing groups AND have even had screener requests from distributors. Aria Appleton has a very bright and ‘sunny’ future ahead.
Thank you for your support, kind words, gifts, and most of all, your patience.
Here’s to an exciting Summer and Autumn season!
