I'm thrilled to report that the Eye for Love Tour story is now in a 30-minute documentary. The film premièred at the Film Factory in Kelowna, BC, to an audience of 66, including our three awesome helpers--Michael, Kendra, and Tianna.
Gene and I always cry when we watch the film, and we were glad to witness that we're not alone in that! There's laughter too, and some thought-. provoking perspectives.
We're grateful for how warmly the film was received, but the most meaningful comments were from audience members who told us it caused them to reflect on their own situation and their own values 💛 (which was what we had dared to hope for). I especially loved the comment from a professional film-maker and producer: "Thank you for the beautiful contribution of film art in this world."
Hi, Everyone. It seems the Fall is a time for rethinking things. We didn't mean to keep you in the dark about the progress of the Love Tour documentary. But, honestly, we've been a bit in the dark ourselves. Telus sat on our funding application for quite some time, and finally let us know that we were SOL.
Plan B was to approach a number of Vancouver film companies (recommended by our lawyer) to explore a possible collaboration. So just yesterday we sent off a proposal to the first company on our list. We're not pitching to all the companies at once because each proposal takes a lot of time and energy--two commodities that have been at a premium this year in our household. I've been dealing with a health issue that has kept me from walking for most of the year. Currently I have a fibreglass cast up to my knee and get around on a knee scooter. Lots of medical appointments, and no chance of walking anytime soon.
That said, we are busy with various projects and trying to enjoy life in Kelowna as much as possible. I hope you are also savouring all of the delicious moments in your life and finding beauty in this season of transition.
We're still committed to producing the Eye for Love Tour documentary and will keep you posted on the next step as soon as have more news.
Meanwhile, we'd love to hear from you. Please leave us a comment below! Also feel free to send us any suggestions you might have about producing the Eye for Love Tour documentary. Click here to see our amazing sizzle reel.
