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.

Screenshot Wednesday and some FAQ's

Rose shares her intention to do some sleuthing.

So I've been getting some questions over and over again that I feel I should probably answer here once and for all. ;)

#1 -- When will we be able to order DVDs?
Hopefully July. The movie will still need some final color and sound tweaks after the premiere, and there are also things like a blooper reel, commentary (???) and subtitles to pull together. Then the DVD actually has to get produced! That all takes time, and I'm due to move in August so we'll see how it all comes together!

#2 -- are we getting a trailer?
No. I've recently been very sick, and only just got the last of the footage a week ago. This means that if we are going to have any sort of presentable film for the premiere I have to devote all of my attention just to getting the movie edited. I will however continue to post movie clips, as those would have to be edited anyhow and take minimal time to render and upload.

#3 -- I'm coming to ReginaCon/Fairy Tale Festival. Do I still need to order tickets?
Nope! If you paid the full price (or Thursday day price) for the festival, your ticket is included in that.

I'm so sorry you haven't been feeling well. I was hoping to see the other trailer, but I'll be glad just to see the movie itself! Since you'll be busy editing until the premiere, maybe it's possible to include the other trailer and possibly the video of Q&A with Hannah and yourself in the DVD when it comes out. I know a lot of us fans would LOVE to see those. =)
Hope it can happen! Can't wait to see it!

COMMENTARY! Yes, I'd be in on that ;) Well... you know, as time allows! This is a good picture. I'm very happy that shirt made it into the movie.
Thanks Elizabeth! Hope you're doing well, dear.

What does it say on the board behind Rose?
This looks great and I can't wait to see the movie. It's going to be awesome. Hope you are feeling better!

Someone probably already asked you this question too, but do you have any idea how much the movie will cost?

Sounds like you're due for some rest and relaxation... wait, do you have time to rest?! :) The movie looks amazing so far! Just think... you're almost done!!
