Dear Remember Me Sue Supporters,
After two years of editing and many more years of filming, I am ecstatic to report that the movie is completed and has been scheduled to air on PBS Chicago (WTTW Channel 11) on Thursday, May 1 at 9pm!!!
This is a huge honor to be featured on the channel in a primetime slot. I am thrilled to share Sue’s story with everyone in the Chicago area. For those of you outside of the region, I am looking into online distribution and film festivals so stay tuned for more details. If you donated $50 or more, I will be sending out DVDs of the film. There will also be some promotions done with the channel so I will be sending out links to everything that I can.
Thank you all for your patience while I worked on completing the film. It was a long process, but it feels great to be done and I am very happy with the end result. I hope you will be too.
Thanks to everyone for your patience as we put the final touches on the film! I’ve been getting a lot of questions about when the movie is airing. Our post-production schedule was set back due to conflicting editing obligations by the team, but we are well on our way to completing the film by November. We are looking forward to sending out an official air date as soon as we are able to submit the final copy of the film to PBS Chicago.
We’ve come a long way.
Last October, we raised $15,000 to help finish Remember Me Sue and now we are almost finished. A few weeks ago we filmed our last interview for the film. We have an hour edited. And now…
The movie has been selected to screen during primetime on Chicago’s PBS station, WTTW this September!
This is a huge testament to Sue’s great story and all the work we’ve been able to accomplish with the film. In addition, the head of programming of WTTW has proposed me going on as a guest on the local public television news show, Chicago Tonight.
Now, we need your help to finish the movie. Read WTTW Senior Vice President Dan Soles’ letter of support
As of now, we have not received any grant funding despite my continued efforts to apply for funds. Clearly, there are people out there who want to watch the movie, but documentary funding is sorely lacking and the competition is fierce. I was told by one grant-making organization that there were over 600 applications for a dozen grants. We were a finalist, but did not make the final cut.
I am now aiming to raise $7,500 so that we can finish the film. The money will be used for editing costs and to hire our Supervising Editor to help with the final cut, a Music Composer to provide an original score, film festival submissions, insurance and legal fees, and marketing efforts to get our film seen by as many people as possible.
If you would like to help us finish what we started, we are accepting donations through IFP at the following link: http://fiscal.ifp.org/project.cfm/565/Remember-Me-Sue/
Your donation is tax-deductible. If you prefer to donate by check, you must download this form and follow the instructions: https://fiscal.ifp.org/pdf/ifp_donor_contribution_form.pdf
Thank you again for making this movie possible.
