Since our grueling eight-day production last November, our cast and crew regrouped one last time for a pickup shoot in Keosauqua, Maquoketa and Boone, Iowa to complete photography on Black Canaries.  Production highlights included a fully-functional and unrestored 1929 Model A,  riding atop a coal-powered steam train through the mountains, and working with a professional prosthetic makeup artist.  the We're currently finalizing the edit, sound mix, and visual effects and will begin submitting the film to festivals this July. 

In the meantime, I still have to raise an additional $15K to finish Black Canaries and cover festival submission fees.  There's still time to support the film, get your name in the credits, join us on the festival circuit and help us reach the finish line.  I need your help more than ever.  Consider making a contribution as little as $10 to receive a digital download of Black Canaries and over 40 minutes of short films, including Lomax, Pearlswig, The Murder Ballad of James Jones, and more.  You can donate at Lanterna Film or make a tax-deductible contribution via my nonprofit fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas.
I'm pleased to announce the release of a limited-edition Lanterna Film BluRay featuring over 40 minutes of my short narrative and documentary films, including the tales of folklorist Alan Lomax’s legendary 1941 journey through the Mississippi Delta, the frame-by-frame restoration of a decayed 8mm family film, a portrait of Boston’s #1 amateur celebrity autograph hound, and more.  Each BluRay also includes a digital download of the films.  Each order will go to support the completion of Black Canaries.
Before Black Canaries makes way to film festivals, I'm planning a series of advance screenings this summer to get audience feedback and help raise funds to complete the film.  Makeshift venues, backyards, rooftops and living rooms and home theaters are all fair game.  What better way to impress your friends and neighbors than presenting a film and its accompanying filmmaker before its official release?!  Iowa Citians will get their first look at FilmScene on Sunday, June 14 at 7pm.
