Frances Glessner Lee Documentary FIlm Update

Film editing can be a slow process, but it's even slower if you don't do it! That's why I'm so grateful that I have a producing partner - we keep each other on track. It's hard to imagine producing a documentary film on one's own. For more updates on our progress, go here.

The film is coming together beautifully. More beautifully than I ever imagined. I feel lucky to be working on such a great project about such an incredible phenomenon like The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death and the incorporable Frances Glessner Lee.

Meanwhile, if you need a Frances Glessner Lee fix - we have a special DVD offer. We usually don't do this kind of thing but it's the holidays and we would love for our films to get into the hands of people who don't normally buy DVDs. (And everyone knows the best part about owning a DVD are the DVD extras! In fact, we ran out of room on our Of Dolls & Murder DVD because it's full up with extras! Including some whip smart interviews with John Waters! )

Yours for only $10! But it ends forever on Dec 31st.

Frances Glessner Lee documentary status update

We had a great day in the edit today. Our documentary of Frances Glessner Lee is coming together beautifully. We are so gratefully to the Glessner House for providing us with some key imagery.

Have you been to Frances Glessner Lee's childhood home in Chicago? If not, drop everything and go there!

Frances Glessner Lee documentary update

We've completed another fun and successful day in the edit suite on the Frances Glessner Lee documentary. It's shaping up beautifully!

We're especially excited about our new introduction. We got some great new imagery when we were filming at the Maryland Office of the Chief Medical Examiner last July and it's fun to incorporate that with some of our existing footage.

Since we started with the other documentary film - Of Dolls & Murder - camera technology has gotten smaller and better, so we are getting angles on the Nutshells that we never thought possible 7 years ago.

We feel the excitement building around this new documentary and we are so grateful that so many of you are interested in learning more about Frances Glessner Lee and her Nutshell Studies.

Frances Glessner Lee documentary film stills

I'm absolutely in love with going through the stills from our latest documentary film shoot. We use different cameras and lens every time we shoot, so each time, there's something new to see.

I really like how these shots of Frances Glessner Lee's Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death - Attic - turned out. Some new perspectives will be nice for the new documentary.

Speaking of documentaries, you can get your own Of Dolls & Murder DVD with all the great extras here.

Nutshell Studies and Frances Glessner Lee documentary

We're headed back to Baltimore next week to film the Nutshells, a few more interviews and show a rough cut for a very special forensic conference.

We can't wait! We even have a new filming technique for the Nutshells. Did I mention that we can't wait?
