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.

For details about the future of the project, click here.

Why we currently can't sell movie merchandise

Some of you have asked me why you haven't been able to buy movie merchandise as we had proposed as a fundraising idea earlier this year.

Well, the answer is that although we got permission from most of the actors, there was one crucial person we were unable to get permission from.

This was of course very disappointing for us all, but there is nothing else we can do at this point. I wish very much that I could make those items available for you, but I tried everything in my power and was unable to secure the permission.

When is the trailer coming?

...when we sell more stuff! We're still just above $200, and we need another $200 before we can buy the software! That trailer isn't coming until we have something to edit on!

How can you help? By checking out and purchasing items from our artfire store!

Don't see anything you want, but still would like to help? You can make us a direct donation! Just click the button in the left-hand corner of this page!






Remember, it's almost November 1st. Buy your Christmas presents early from our Artfire store, and you'll be helping out SOTB in the process!

Welcome to...

I just want to say a big "WELCOME!" to anyone who is visiting the blog after picking up one of our mini-flyers at the Twin Cities Book Fest yesterday. It was great to meet all of you and I hope to see some of you at our premiere in June! Meanwhile, please enjoy browsing our site! We've got tons of pictures, interviews, and even a copy of trailers (though not the best quality) for you to enjoy!

$200 Reward Post

HALFWAY THERE! We are halfway there! Imagine me singing it, oh wonderful fans! We are halfway to getting our editing software! And let me tell you, I am ready to start piecing this baby together!

So, as a reward and to encourage you all to buy even more stuff so that we can get the software - here are the rest of the outdoor pictures - and include some of my favorites!

Remember! The next milestone includes a signed mini-poster for a lucky fan! And because you all are amazing, I've decided to give away THREE posters instead of one when we reach this goal! So keep shopping our artfire, and recommend it to others as well! There is more awesome stuff on the site all the time!

$150 Goal Reached! Reward post!

Technically we reached the $200 goal, but I didn't want to post all the pictures on one night, so tonight you guys get Fish, and tomorrow you get the rest of the Outdoor Shoot Photos.

Congratulations! We've passed the halfway point! We're halfway to getting the software - and a trailer!!!!

Now Fish yourselves out... and keep your eyes peeled for a couple of extras I threw in because you are all so awesome.
