Want to help us finish SOTB? Then help us find a church that will say "YES" to allowing us to film in their sanctuary!
We've contacted about five churches now that have all given us a firm "No."
Needless to say, this director is getting very discouraged.
However, YOU CAN HELP! If you, or someone you know goes to a traditional-looking Catholic church (or a church with a Catholic-looking interior) within an hour's drive of Minnapolis, would you please contact them and see whether they'd be open to a student production company filming three scenes for "The Shadow of the Bear" in their sanctuary? We would need about ten hours sometime between December 28th and 31st.
ALSO - because we're only doing interior scenes, a college chapel could possibly work as well! So those of you who are or have attended Catholic colleges in the Mpls/St.Paul area, go ahead and check into those as well!
We have referances availible upon request.
If you contact a church and recieve a postive answer, you can let us know through theshadowofthebear [at] ymail [dot] com.
We need this help desperately. The film cannot be completed without these scenes!
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.
