Production has wrapped!

We are very excited to announce that production for Red Pearl wrapped as of 6/25/2014!  As we enter into the post-production phase of the movie, we are feeling great about the amazing footage we were able to capture thanks to our extremely talented cast and our expertly skilled crew!

Thank you so much to everyone who supported the production phase including all of our beautiful Kickstarter backers as well as our lovely crew and cast who were grossly overworked and embarrassingly underpaid.  We couldn’t have done it without the generosity and hard work of all of you.

In the coming months we will be hard at work getting the film edited, mixed, color-corrected, scored, and eventually mastered so that come summertime 2015  we can share our beautiful new movie with all of you.  In the meantime, please enjoy some behind-the-scenes production photos and a few film stills!

Love,

Stacy & Jess
