I think an artist of any medium can confirm that the completion a project is in itself such a moment of celebration. We put days, weeks, months sometimes years into the art that we love and in the process are met with such a range of emotions, from crippling doubt to euphoric gratification. Though it may be fleeting and unshared with the public, it is in this final moment of completion of a piece, alone, that an artist has a true, raw moment of pure celebration. The rest? The parties, champagne, the premieres and events…is just for fun. As they say, there is an art to celebration. But I think the lucky few know that art actually is the celebration.
The party was a huge success not just because we reached the Green Light but also because we experienced firsthand the level of friendship and support that this city has to offer. Contributions large and small were each an overwhelming blessing from you all, but even more than that, the fact that you all believe in us and this mission is so reaffirming. We can't wait to share more of our work with you.
Last night was pure fun! We saw Cecilia for the first time on a big screen amongst friends at the Gene Frankel Theatre in NYC for Secrets of the Deep: Dreams on Film. Thank you everyone who joined us, you made the experience unforgettable! Check out the article written up about the fest:
"A STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL TALE OF A YOUNG WOMAN ACCUSED OF WITCHCRAFT DURING THE MIDDLE AGES. WITHOUT A DOUBT, THE BEST ENTRY AS IT ALONE IS WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION."
Our launch party for Maenad productions was a success! thank you friends for sharing the night with us as we celebrate this new journey: Telling bold, honest stories about the female experience.
Cecilia is officially wrapped! 🎉🎉🎉 What can I say, totally overwhelmed with the support and generosity of everyone who contributed, the talented folks who joined us on set, offered their services, locations and catering. We couldn't have done this without you all and we can't wait to share Cecilia soon!
