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.

First screencap

Photobucket

Actually got into the nitty-grittyness of editing tonight! It takes forever just to edit a minute of film... you wouldn't believe it! However I also got some screencaptures, and present the first one for your viewing pleasure! Please note that none of the footage has been color corrected yet. :)

Also, we're looking into buying a harddrive. I'm hoping to have some T-Shirts for sale soon, and all profits from those would go into purchasing what we need to finish up the film. So keep that in mind! :)

1st screen-cap! Awesome! It looks great!

Good luck with the hard work of editing!

May I ask what type of harddrive you are looking at? (How many GB?)

Huzzah! I remember that scene!

:D I love that picture!!!!!!!!!

And t-shirts...oooooh! I would definitely buy one! :)

We are investigating a 500 gigabyte harddrive.

Hmm. I think Terabyte might be affordable too. Depending on your budget. These days, working with video, 500 gigs can manage to vanish on you.

And, of course, using some sort of DVD backup if you can...

ps--i will definitely buy a t shirt ;-)

Wow! Looks awesome!!

Premiere--the timing works for me but Minnesota is so far away! Somehow I'll have to convince my family to randomly take a trip out there (you didn't know we had an Uncle Mike?! come meet him!!!), but I doubt it. :-( I'll just have to order it. ASAICO. (as soon as it comes out)

Carpe - naw, we plotted it out and we were almost going to go with a 350, but that would have been too small... I am NOT going higher than 500 though. Not unless someone just donates a terabyte harddrive to the cause. (Which would be pretty shiny, of course)

I will totally buy a shirt! Have you thought of maybe promoting fund raisers or something? I know that could get complicated with taxes and all though...but I would certainly try to contribute if you did decide to do that.

Shirts? Awesome! :) Sorry to sound silly, but what's a screencapture?

ilovewriting- A screencapture is pretty much a movie still. The picture of Blanche and Bear is a stilled bit of the actual movie! That is the first "screencapture" or you can literally translate that to- screen captured.
