Last week marked the official start of this project, although it's been months in the making. This site and social media have finally gone live, and the project has finally been registered in the right places. I've started making contact with some people and making plans for the proposal short. I'm anticipating production to begin on that around the end of this month with the first conversation.
Starting in January, I plan to take a trip back to Philly to complete the principal photography on the proposal short, with post-production to begin immediately after. During the period between now and then, I'll be working to secure as many opportunities with the prospective subjects as well as working on the second phase of this project (which is yet to be announced).
Soul music has touched us all in some way, and I'd love to read your experiences, either through the comments or email. Perhaps we'll find a way to include some of them in the film.
