New target release date / new interviews / continued production

Hello everyone! I would like to first of all state that post-production continues, but so does production, simultaneously. There is so much footage to go through that post work needs to be continuous while we shoot the last bit of the film. I also personally just shot a new feature film called RED MILE, and traveled to Cannes once more, the footage from both to be included in the CLAPBOARD JUNGLE (and supporting additional content). There are also trips upcoming to NY and Fantasia (in Montreal), with the goal to get the last of our interviews recorded by end of summer.

Overall, production will continue until late Fall 2016, with a new release date targeted for March or April 2017. I’ll continue to keep everyone posted as all of this draws near.

The decision to push the release date back is due to multiple factors. Not reaching our Indiegogo fundraising goal meant that our proposed post-production schedule is taking more time due to lack of manpower, I personally didn’t feel I had a good enough ending for the main film yet (which will be remedied this Fall, more details on that soon), and we have been in discussions with some exciting new partners that may help us elevate the project (and subsequent distribution). At the end of the day, the decision is what is best for the film, and has been made to give you the best ‘bang for your buck’ possible.

Regardless, I apologize for the lack of frequent updates. The project is ongoing, I’m just personally too busy to keep posting. This will all ramp up closer to the release date, of course.

Thanks for your patience, and I can’t wait to share what we’ve been creating over these past few years!

Thank you,
Justin McConnell
Director/Producer
