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.

Hey friends!

Sorry for the long silence. Coming home from vacation meant I had a ton of 'real life' responsibilities to catch up on! Also I had pretty much exhausted my store of screen captures and need to take some more before I share them with you.

No new developments on a trailer yet, except that I am open to ideas! So if you have an idea for a trailer, post it in the comments and let me know!

Secondly, we are looking for a theatre at which to host the SOTB premiere in June! It needs to be in the Twin Cities or the northwest metro, have the capability to project digitally (and preferably with a good clear picture), and also not be too expensive (I don't think we could spend more than $500 at the very most to rent the place for the evening). So if you have any leads, or want to do some internet searching and come across something, please let me know! You can send your findings to theshadowofthebear [at] ymail [dot] com.

I think in the trailer, you should just say a summary of the movie, sort of the summary that the back of the book has. Just make sure the trailer doesn't have any give aways (even if I read the book...) because a lot of movies do that. Even though this won't happen, you should check movie theaters in Wisconsin (Oconomowoc/Milwaukee area!!!:) for a premiere area. That would be awesome!!! (Guess where I live:) Just giving ideas. By the way, I amm a huge fan!!! Cannot wait until the movie/ trailer comes out!!!
