We had a busy summer on the film -- we attended the incredible Producer Summit at the Sundance Resort and geared up for the film's launch. And we also completed mixing and color correcting the film -- which is being "printed" this week.
We are thrilled to be launching the film at the Woodstock Film Festival October 1 (Woodstock at 5:30) and October 3 (Rhinebeck at 6pm)! It's the perfect place for our premiere. If you're upstate or want to plan a fall weekend, please come. We'd love to see your smiling faces. We have a few extra tickets available for the Thursday screening, so if you can use one, please email me. First come first served!
Tickets can be bought here. And please feel free to circulate the card or post on social media.
In other news, the film will also be playing at the Astra Documentary Film Festival in Romania in October -- so if any of you is in Transylvania, check us out!
Kickstarter tells us that we've just surpassed our funding target!
As you know, we've put years of work into this project, and it's been very meaningful to us. Your support is a tremendous affirmation both for us and also of Mayer's life.
Thanks to each of you who took the time to read our email entreaties, and of course thank you for backing us, however big or small your pledge. With your support, we will be able to finish this film and bring Mayer’s story to light -- an accomplishment shared by every backer of this campaign.

We're very excited to announce the fundraising campaign to finish Left on Purpose. If we can hit our goal, we'll be able to cover the major post-production costs, and hopefully leave us with a little left over to help get the word out after the film is ready. If you're interested in helping share Mayer's story with a wider audience, please take a look at the campaign page, video, and rewards.
We appreciate all of your support, whether you can pledge a few dollars or just take a moment to share our page with your friends.
We are busy getting ready for our kickstarter campaign so stay tuned for our launch!
