We finished “Little Miss Jihad” on August 20, 2012! A big thank you to our entire cast and crew for giving their all. And incredible gratitude to all our friends, family, and supporters for enabling us to make the best film possible.
We’re also incredibly proud to have raised $2805 through our crowdfunding efforts. Every single cent went towards supporting emerging artists. It was so important to us that we do this right, and we’re forever indebted to those who came forward with their support.
In the end, post-production was a fast-paced process. We locked the picture edit in June. Worked with genius composer, Maria Molinari, throughout July to get our final score in place. We finished it just in the knick of time for our sound mix with Steve Ebjick (Post City Sound), and then completed our online with the help of Ahmad Ismail at Urban Post.
Yes, it was a whirlwind! But we got it done, and have already started submitting to festivals. All you ever want as a filmmaker and storyteller is an audience. And we’re happy to announce that we will have a world premiere screening in Toronto soon!
This film has been a year in the making… and if you factor in its original conception… years. Blood, sweat, and the kindness of strangers.
The perfect recipe for a dream come true.
