I noticed that The Street Fighter of Mopologetics provided an important update
on the film project earlier this week:
We had a small gathering last night in the northern part of Utah Valley for donors and potential donors to the Interpreter Foundation’s Six Days in August film project. Among other things, we showed those present a number of scenes that were created during our recent filming. They were well received. Those assembled also had what proved to be the very great opportunity to hear from our Brigham Young (John Donovan Wilson) and our Mary Ann Angell Young (Twyla Wilson), who were magnificent.
Everybody Wang Chung, did you attend the event? If so, what was your reaction to the clips? (As a side note, the Relief Society Sister in Parowan lamented to me yesterday that she had made a generous donation to the film project, but she didn't receive an invitation to the northern Utah Valley gathering.)
In any event, I was pleased to read this report
on the film's progress from The Street Fighter a few weeks ago:
Slightly more than 82% of the filming is now done, measuring by allocated time, although some crucial scenes remain to be captured. (One requires winter weather.)
Alas, though, a considerable amount of money still needs to be raised. Not my favorite pastime, but unavoidably necessary.
Alas, no word on whether the crucial transfiguration scene has been captured.
