Screening in one of the coolest venues - a 100 year old barn

Free Range Film Festival (Wrenshall, MN) is an experience like no other. Every year the festival takes place in a 100 year old red barn and the whole event it's the definition of effortless cool, swag bag with fresh veggies included. Also, lets not forget the sun hat and the "filmmaker's only" lounge in the rafters with couches! Silicone Soul got to screen in the Barn on June 30th and it was wonderful!

BEST OF FEST at MSPIFF and SOLD OUT screenings

The two SILICONE SOUL screenings (April 21, April 22) at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Film Festival have been extra special because most of the team members (Miles Painter- editor, Charlie McCarron - composer, Jesse Marks - sound mix, Beth Peloff & John Akre - animation) that worked on the documentary live there including our director, Melody Gilbert. Even our cinematographer, Igor Myakotin, who is based in NYC flew in for the screenings. The spirits were high, the screenings SOLD out, the Q&A's were fantastic, the audience receptive and open minded, director Melody Gilbert gave a TV interview for KARE 11   (see it bellow) and we were included in the BEST OF FEST list, getting the chance to screen SILICONE SOUL one more time (May 2). In short, we had the greatest time!

WE DID IT! Goal reached!

THANK YOU to each and every one of you beautiful people who contributed to the campaign to help us finish Silicone Soul (see list below)!  Today (Nov 29, 2017) we reached 100% of our goal, so we get to keep all the funds raised. Whew! I'm grateful and humbled for your support, especially during Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday (what was I thinking?) --you were still there for me and I appreciate it so much!

We still have three days left in the campaign, and we will continue to accept donations, especially to support the animators who have been working more than we expected. If you know anyone who would like to contribute, send them here: bit.ly/silicone-soul-doc. There's still time to get in the credits or become an Executive Producer :).

Yours in Docs,  Melody
