Sorry for not posting during all of the excitment!

Hello,

I have some exciting news!

1) The film is done!
2) Its world premiere was at the Sensoria Film & Music Festival in Sheffield, England at the beginning of October.  The event – called “Roving Women” was sold out!  We screened the film and then the lovely Nat Johnson and her band played glorious Connie covers as well as some beautiful originals.  It was also my first time ever out of the USA and I have to say… it’s not out of the cards that I may one day move to Sheffield.

Here are some related links – including some coverage by the BBC, if you can believe it.

Twitter was also all a-buzz and someone even called it the “best night of the festival.”  It was so much fun (even the Q&A afterwards) and I still can’t believe it all happened.

3) We won the “Life and Legacy” award at the Orlando Urban Film Festival!

4) All of the Kickstarter Rewards have been sent out.  Thank you for everyone’s support on this very long (but very worth it) journey.  I’m one process paper (and two classes) away from my MA in Media Studies at The New School.  I’ve submitted to some festivals so we’ll see what happens with those.  Once I graduate I’ll be able to focus on how to get the doc out there to everyone who wants to see it.

That’s all for now! Though I think that was quite a lot…

Updates for The Connie Converse Enthusiast

Hello everyone,

I can’t believe it’s already October! I’m sure you can’t either.  Anyway, I just wanted to let you know what’s going on with the project…

– We are in the midst of acquiring production equipment!

– This fall/winter we will be conducting some more NYC based interviews.

– It’s all about landscapes. Throughout the seasons. In “ends of the earth” places.

Enjoy your autumn!

Thanks again for everything,

Andrea

WE DID IT!

Dear Everyone,

No more empty-pocket-waltzing for us, We Lived Alone: The Connie Converse Documentary is100% funded!

I am writing to say thank you to ALL of you who have put up with the shameless emails and kickstarter updates throughout the campaign. However, I would also like to say that… WE DID IT! The kickstarter goal was met today, with 59 hours to spare. From now on and into the foreseeable future the only updates you will be getting will have to do with all of the fascinating progress we at TEAM CONNIE HQ will be making in production. I will be applying for more grants from organizations at a later date to pay for editing and color correction after all is shot and done, but right now this funding will go towards travel and equipment expenses for next summer (as well as to the fulfillment of your rewards!).

We are allowed to raise over our goal, so if you feel like it you can take a gander again at the campaign and share this successful endeavor with others.

A million bazillion words of gratitude to you all.

Did I mention that WE DID IT!?

Warm & Fuzzies,

Andrea & Team Connie HQ
