“Waiting for You” and “The Rising”

clock.1It takes a long time and many ups and downs to bring a film project to completion … to have it polished and ready to be shown in theatres for us to enjoy. You will have already noted that 2014 was the target date to begin filming, “Waiting For You”.  So, by time of the 2014 announcement much of the initial work was already done and filming was “coming soon”.  By contrast, in that same year, “The Rising” was in only the initial stages of the process.  An early announcement in July 2014 proclaimed the anticipated schedule.

“Waiting for You” is now complete and ready for distribution.  It’s 2017 entry in film festivals has been announced and the search for a distributor has begun.  More steps are left before launching a release date … 6+ years in and not quite there yet.  Almost 2 years since casting was confirmed.

“The Rising” has gathered much, not all, of its funding, sorted locations, and announced some casting.  More steps lie ahead on its way to reaching us.

Many films tread a long and difficult road from conception to inception to completion.  There are many steps: finding the story, writing the screen play, finding funding, finding locations, producing artwork, then on to casting and shooting, followed by post production editing, finalizing, and finding a distributor.  We are the happy recipients at the end of this journey to enjoy and savor the fruits of many talented people.  We need patience, and we applaud them all.

  1. Hi there! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He constantly kept preaching about this. I most certainly will send this information to him.
    Pretty sure he’s going to have a very good read. I appreciate you for sharing!
