“What is that in your hand?”
Exactly one year ago today, 120 friends—including many of you—kindly supported David DelaGardelle’s and my endeavor to bring The Narrow Road to the world as an illustrated novel. (Don’t have a copy? It’s not too late! http://narrowroadmovie.com/the-novel/)
In celebration of that success, I’m releasing my short film, Descent, to the public for the first time! Descent was created last year in one week for a 168-hour film competition. Our goal was to create a fantasy story with the same look and feel that we’re determined to achieve with The Narrow Road movie, which we also demonstrated in our 2013 Kickstarter-funded Test Scene. It was a difficult task within the confines of a speed filmmaking competition, but I’m very happy with what my team was able to achieve.
I hope you enjoy the film!
Happy New Year!
I hope that your 2014 is off to a great start, and I wanted to send you a quick letter thanking you all for helping 2013 to be such a great success for the Narrow Road team.
In 2013, Narrow Road Film Partners completed a 10-minute short film directed by Erik Yeager, Descent, starring Anthony Tyler Quinn. Descent will soon be released to the public and has so far been entered into two film festivals, receiving an Official Selection in the 168 Film Festival (for which it was created) and a Cammy Award in the Colorado State University Media Festival. The trailer alone has received nearly 4,500 views, so we hope that the film will be well-received by a wider audience in 2014.
2013 also saw the success of our second Kickstarter campaign, thanks to all of you! The Kickstarter incentives are rolling out as planned and we’ve already been receiving great feedback on the Narrow Road novel. In early 2014, the novel will be released for sale to the public after the majority of our Kickstarter Backers have received their copies.
Lastly, 2013 saw great success for The Narrow Road Associate Producer, Michael Dohrmann, when Mike won the $100,000 Grand Prize in an Infowars.com film competition for the short film, The Purge (which I had the privilege to help out on). This surely means more great things in store for our tight knit group of Tucson filmmakers–congratulations Mike and team!
We continue to move toward our highest objective: making The Narrow Road into a feature film, and look forward to moving closer toward this goal in 2014. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement as we continue along on this journey.
Wishing you a joyful and prosperous New Year,
We successfully completed our short film for the 168 film project–no easy feat given the scope of our project and the seven-day time limit! Please take a minute to check out the trailer for our film, DESCENT. Thank you!
The Narrow Road team is excited to announce that we’ll be competing in this year’s 168 film competition for a grand prize of up to $1 Million for the production of a feature-length film!
The Narrow Road writer and producer, Erik Yeager, will be producing and co-writing the short script with top-rated script doctor, Howard Allen. Erik will also be directing.
Anthony Tyler Quinn is confirmed in a yet-to-be-determined leading role, and the Narrow Road team is excited for this opportunity to re-unite for our first group project since the Narrow Road Test Scene.
As always, you can support us by making a tax-deductible donation to The Narrow Road through our 501(c)(3) non-profit sponsor, Filmmakers Collaborative, Inc. Your support is appreciated and will go a long way toward helping us ensure the strongest entry possible and the best chance at winning the Grand Prize!
