From Producer Erik Yeager:
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! https://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!
From Producer Erik Yeager:
I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to help expand The Narrow Road’s audience by joining a team dedicated to working with fantasy and science fiction fans across the world. I hope you’ll make the leap with me to Legendarium Media and see how we’re now another exciting step closer to making The Narrow Road a reality.
As always, thanks for your loyal support!
Hi Narrow Road friends,
I have a couple of exciting Narrow Road updates to share with you! First, The Narrow Road has been reviewed by The Dove Foundation Review Board and is now recommended family entertainment by The Dove Foundation! Here’s the review: http://www.dove.org/review/10277-the-narrow-road-a-pilgrims-progress-novel/. The mission of the Dove Foundation is “To encourage and promote the creation, production, distribution and consumption of wholesome family entertainment.” You can learn more about the Dove Foundation here: http://www.dove.org/
Second, The Narrow Road novel is now available for sale to the public in Hardcover and Paperback editions, with eBooks to follow in the near future! Currently for sale on Lulu.com, the novel will soon be available to purchase through most major online book retailers, like Amazon.com and BN.com. Here are links to the current sales pages:
Thank you so much for your continued support! If you’ve read and enjoyed The Narrow Road, please consider taking the time to rate and review the novel on Lulu.com. If you haven’t enjoyed the novel, please don’t feel obligated. 🙂
Thanks to our Kickstarter campaign and support surrounding it, we’ve already sold more than 200 copies of the novel. Please spread the word and share the product links to help us sell even more books in order help us make The Narrow Road movie a reality.
With great appreciation,
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,
In 30-days we raised a grand total of $16,132 (108% of our goal) from 120 backers, our campaign was shared over 1,500 times on Facebook and even more on Twitter, and our campaign video was viewed over 1,000 times. We couldn’t have done this without each and every one of you, and we won’t forget that.
Thank you so much,
