We believe that whatever challenges one might face, it is through art that we are fully human. This project is dedicated to helping people expand their idea of what is possible.
With 2 years of filming and an uplifting dance concert behind us, SOAR has now reached the rough cut stage. Under the guidance of Supervising Editor Heidi Zimmerman, we were able to pull the most meaningful moments from the hours of footage we’d accumulated. The result shows the journey Kiera and Uriah took with me to bring their story to the public.
In order to know if we’ve assembled something that resonates, we will screen the rough cut for people unfamiliar with our story. Their reactions and feedback will let us know where we’ve succeeded and where we need to refine the story line.
The picture lock version of SOAR will then be color graded and undergo sound design and final scoring before we submit it to film festivals and seek distribution. As of yet, we have not received any grants to cover this next stage of post.
Although the money raised from our Seed & Spark campaign will cover some of these expenses, we will still need to raise more to pay for all the costs associated with this final stage,
It’s never too late to join our film family and take the journey with us. Once we have a picture lock and a finished soundtrack, there will be another screening to share our progress with our loyal fans.
For out of town supporters, there will be digital downloads of the film available once we have premiered at our first film festival. And if you want to organize a screening, we will do our best to bring the film to you.
So soar with us! Help us finish the film by donating and sharing our story.
We thank our sponsors and supporters for making our progress possible.
