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.

Software arrived!

Vegas Pro arrived in the mail today and is sitting in front of me right now! Many, many thanks to Shaylynn for taking care of making the order for me!

Editing should start in earnest as soon as Christmas is over!

Those of you wondering about your posters and the video of answers -- those goodies are still happening, they're just taking some time. Thank you for your patience!

Oh and I'm still looking for a mouse.

Software is ordered!

Excitement just gets greater!

So I'm going to be editing the film on my laptop... and I could really use a mouse. I only use a touchpad right now, but for that much finger tapping it would really save my hands if I had a mouse.

So! If any of you have a gently used mouse (with a middle scroller!) in good condition that you would like to donate to the SOTB cause, send me an e-mail at theshadowofthebear@ymail.com

I'll probably ask for a picture first, and an awesome bonus feature would be a wireless one. But I'll see what options there are... :)

$400 Reward Post

You did it!

Fans and friends of the SOTB movie, I am so humbled by and thankful for your generous outpouring of support this fall. This film truly would not be possible without your encouragement, both verbal and financial. Thank you so very much!

We will be ordering the Vegas editing software very shortly here -- and then I will get to work editing! Hopefully I will be able to give you all a trailer by the end of the Christmas holidays.

Our Artfire store and donation button will remain in place until we release the DVD. There will still be costs to cover between now and then and any help is welcome.

Now, let's break out the confetti and celebrate this milestone!
