Its been a long time between postings and for this, we sincerely apologize. We have had some setbacks over the past year so production is moved more slowly than we would have liked.
That being said, Joe has done a stellar job backing up all files and securing our footage. Additionally, he has enlisted the help of several fine folks who have sifted through hundreds of hours of film from Erden's 312 days on the Pacific ocean to capture the most compelling moments into bite size chunks of usable footage. We are also very close to finishing cuts for the first three years of Erden's travel. This is a huge psychological milestone for those in the cutting room. And we could not have gotten this far without the fine support of our awesome interns. We'd like to recognize Taylor Tubbs, Rebeca Bonilla-Myers, Emily Christian, Sarah Robles, and Matthew Waxman for their perseverance on this project. A big public THANK YOU to all of you who have contributed to our progress thus far.
Joe is also making progress with his network of documentarians and vendors. There us a vibrant documentary community in Los Angeles and hopefully we will be able to utilize these resources when the time comes.
Joes often says, "If Erden can suffer the hardships or traveling the world by human power, then we can certainly endure all the wading through footage he took along the way." It is taking time, but we are persevering, one day at a time.
We can't say enough how much we appreciate the dedication of our friends and supporters. This project is a labor of love and we intend to see it through, no matter how long it takes.
Best wishes to all.
