Welcome to "The Shadow of the Bear" movie blog!

We are an independant young adult-run production based in the U.S. Midwest. The film has been in pre-production since summer 2008, and wrapped up filming on August 26th, 2010.

We premiered the project on June 23rd, 2011 at the St. Anthony Main Theater in Minneapolis, MN to a delighted audience of over 100 viewers.

Well, preproduction continues, though there are still a lot of details to fall in place.

However, some exciting things coming up.

First of all, I've been making some connections with other young filmmakers that may be very beneficial to the production.

And secondly, later this week I will be heading out to Virginia to meet Regina Doman in person! This is a wonderful opportunity and I am so excited to meet her in person and talk over all the scripting and movie details floating around in my head. I will definately keep you all updated on that!

Also, I know some of you have had questions about various parts of the film. If you would like to resubmit those questions as comments to this post, I will then do a FAQ post to answer them.

When filming is completed how will I be able to get a copy? Where will it be sold?

just wondering when you will have pictures of the other characters and actors.
I can't wait to see more updates on the site.

Do you have a release date yet?

When will there be a preview?

Do you plan to have one big trailer or a teaser and a normal one?

I left you a Private Message at the Fairy Tale Novels forum a while back. Just checking to see if you got it. If not, could you send me an email address at which I can contact you? I'd like to introduce myself and see if there's any way I can help...

My own email is amorvincitomnes AT gmail DOT com.

Dear Elena,

When is the film scheduled to come out? How soon will the filming be ended? Have you found a character for Rose yet?

-an excited fan of Regina Doman

P.S. How did you get started doing this? Will you be interested in other filming other Catholic books after this?

I think the best part of all this is that the original author is taking part in the production of the film, at least somewhat. That way I know that it is fully approved by her!!! :D
