Happy Memorial Day!

I hope you are taking the day off. We can't stay away from our dead dolls, so we are doing a bit of editing this extended weekend. Things are starting to flow nicely. I can tell that some of you are anxious to see this film get finished! Thanks for all the inquiries. We've been a little busy with everyday work, but Our Wildest Dreams is never far from our thoughts and conversations!

It's seems fitting on Memorial Day weekend that we mention that memorial is certainly a factor in this documentary film. Death represented through dolls helps make the issue of murder much more "friendlier." And death as entertainment is another safe way to explore something so dark. Still, we find ourselves thinking about victims and their families a lot. As we go through our footage, it's the words of the detectives, morgue technicians, among others, that always bring it back to the sad reality of our film.

Dead dolls never get old. Never, ever, ever.

A still from Our Wildest Dreams: A True Crime Documentary of Dolls & Murder

(Lazy) Susan says:

It's been a pretty eventful week on Our Wildest Dreams. John is busy editing (and I love what he's laying down!) John has also been working on music for the film. I've been trying to finish up the paper edit. We recorded some scratch narration of me. I'm just a placeholder for the real deal. We are set to record him in August.

This week I've also been communicating with one of the detectives in our film. He's so interesting and says things that other detectives just don't say, but here's the catch: He works undercover in the prison system. (not in the United States) So, we are trying to figure out a way to include him without blowing his cover. Tricky stuff. But it just might work!

Hey, have you checked out The Rake?? I'm thrilled to be in it!

Meanwhile, John and I are teaching a doc class at IFP! It's not too late to sign up! Contact me if you need some info.
