April Update

Hello All,

Happy Spring! It doesn’t seem that long ago that Diana was in the park filming on the last day of the season. Now, Opening Day for Softball in Central Park is only days away! It’s been a long, long busy winter for the making of the The Regulars Documentary. A brief update:

EDITING:  We have captured ALL of the many, many hours of footage shot over the past four summers. Ish traveled to Baltimore in February to begin working with the footage. In between his other jobs, he and Diana have been working on an official trailer, collaborating via iChat and Skype between Durham and Baltimore. More about that soon!

 

WEBSITE: Diana is learning how to create THIS website with WordPress (SLOWLY!). We will continue to post more photos and videos on the site in the coming months. Much more to come!

FUNDRAISING: Much thanks to all of you who have supported the project along the way. We are continuing to raise funds in order to pay for editing and interview transcription services. Our goal is to raise $15,000 by June in order to reserve editing time in Ish’s schedule. If you would like to contribute, you can make a tax-deductible donation online through the New York Foundation for the Arts ARTSPIRE website. Checks may also be mailed directly to the filmmakers at

We have continued to submit grant proposals and will be contacting corporate sponsors in the coming months.

TRADING CARDS
: Jim Doran has begun creating beautiful retro trading cards of Morty’s Regulars players for the film. His first creation was of Howie Dixon.
