Documentary Awarded CEL Grant!

This past Friday we received notification that we have been awarded the Communities of Engaged Learners Grant! This grant will enable us to purchase necessary equipment and assist us in our plans to travel to shooting locations in New York City and Sicily. You can scroll through previous posts to see some of the preparation we put into applying for the grant. Hopefully other artists and filmmakers will be able to utilize this information in applying for their respective projects. That's what this site's about --- documenting our process and hopefully providing others insight into the thrilling, and many times, challenging work of getting a creative project off the ground. We have many more audio files documenting our grant preparation process that we'll post soon. Thanks for stopping by.

That's great news! Congratulations, Torben and Travis. Keep pulling for me to get that Fulbright grant I've applied for.. It sucks to be in suspense.

Yeah, the suspense is brutal... We had to wait an extra week longer than we had thought we were going to have to, which was hard, but totally worth it in the end. Good luck!

We'll keep our fingers crossed!

Looks like you guys are getting the hook up. I have to finish these grad apps (thanks for the props in your post) but once that is through, let's work on a flash site for the doc. rock on.
