We're a two-blog family now, with a shiny new Tumblr in addition to what you're reading here. So, while it's mostly the same content, the 'reblog' and 'Ask Trixie' buttons mean occasional bonus Tumblr posts. We got this question recently from Tumblr's blinuetchristina, and since it's one we get a lot, we thought we'd share it here as well:
You probably get asked this A TON. I probably should pay attention better so I wouldn't have to ask this. But, I was wondering when y'all think you will have screenings of How To Lose Your Virginity?
We love when people ask us that because it means they (you) are as excited as we are to get the film out there!!
We’re are at the rough cut stage, which means we have a really good draft of the film, but still have work to do to finish it. We’ve shown that version to several audiences in test screenings and have gotten great feedback. We’re also planning to release a few scenes from the film over the next month or two, so stay tuned to the blog for that!
The holdup is that the editing stage of doc filmmaking is really expensive, and we need to raise the money to pay our editor, create animation and graphics we need, get our score composed and a lot of other technical things. Even though our budget is about equal to Tom Cruise’s MI3 hair and makeup expenses, it’s a hell of a lot of money for indie filmmakers like us.
If anyone wants to help us finish the film that much faster, you can make a tax-deductible donation of any size here. [Special thanks to two women both named Bonnie for their super-generous recent donations!! Any other Bonnie’s out there?]
You can also get on our mailing list or join our Facebook page to be the first to hear about upcoming screenings.
Thanks for your question and keep them coming!
