Festival’d! (What’s Next?)

LMJ premiered at the 16th Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival on Thursday, November 8th @ 1 p.m. (Art Gallery of Ontario, Jackman Hall).  It capped off a year-long journey since we pitched the project at the 2011 festival, and we couldn’t be more happy about the screening.

Thanks to all our friends, family, and random film lovers who came out to watch it!

Every filmmaker dreams of their work having an audience, and so for the next year or so, we look forward to submitting the film to more festivals.  After that, we’ll decide whether it’s worth just throwing it up online, or trying out other distribution avenues.

In the meantime, we’ll be sending private links to all our major sponsors and crowdfunding contributors, as well as DVD copies for the cast and crew.

My greatest hope for the film is that it entertains.  That it makes you laugh.  That it makes you think.  That you get lost in the story.

Thank you for joining us on our journey!

Post-Production (We’re Finished!)

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.

Thank you!

Stephanie & Team LMJ
