Just wanted to give you all a very quick update. It’s been a while. We apologize for not writing or sending flowers. After the end of our last Indiegogo campaign (which was a wild success that we owe all to you) we started hitting the production end of things hard.
Here’s what we’ve been up to.
In case you missed our tweet about it earlier this month, phase 2 filming for The Reel Britain will kick off next month, October 14, in London. We will be in London-town shooting our next round of interviews for two weeks. During that time, we will be speaking with attendees of the BFI London Film Festival along with a very epic lineup of incredibly talented folks that I can’t mention in this post.
All will be revealed in time.
We’ve been very busy getting equipment together, finalizing plans, doing audio/video/lighting tests, and scheduling. So much scheduling.
We are very excited for this next phase of filming because it is an experience we plan on sharing with you as much as possible. We’ve set up an instagram you can follow to get up to date production clips/photos, we have plans to do live video chats with you from London, and will also be blogging our experiences each day. It is going to be one hell of a ride and we can’t wait to share it with you.
Talk to you soon!

Until our next update, we’d like to recommend a few things to check out. As someone who we hope will be involved in the filming process as much as possible from your place in the world, it’s very important you stay “in the know.” We want you to get the most out of your experience following production. And it is always fun to learn something new!
